Coal is rated as one of the single biggest polluters for the production of electricity. Natural gas, which is now cheaper is cleaner. Coal plants are also able to be retrofitted to burn natural gas. Solar with power storage is completely clean after manufacturing and is cheaper. Wind with power storage is completely clean after manufacturing and is comparably priced. Nuclear is clean with the exception of the byproduct waste and is comparably priced. We don’t need to use coal anymore to power our lives. Additionally, renewable energy plants are more resistant against natural catastrophes as they are generally unmanned and don’t require shipping in recourses to operate. Vote no on reducing the environmental laws for these plants. They have had their era and it’s time to let them go.
