Jen: What about the wind generators! The Magnets use RARE EARTH in their manufacture, You should see the country after the mine, most of the product comes from china & the area it comes from is totally contaminated.
Then there is the manufacturing of LITHIUM BATTERIES just as bad as coal!
could go on & on, TELEPHONES, COMPUTERS, 🙁 🙁
William I agree but don’t you think we are entitled to use (as we export ourcoal) the coal to have cheaper power?
If you take into account that China supplies the most RARE METALS used in the magnets of the wind generators, this in itself is as the same or more Pollutant than our coal. I could go on about the pollution costs to the environment
by the production of all the modern technology, but it would take me a dozen pages.
