Nuclear takes years to build. Gas, wind and biofuels will get us there. Solar will take over as gas phases out.

Coal is a dead man walking.

Depends on the length of one's life.

Coal burning will be outlawed, make no mistake. Every day of delay mounts a huge debt that must be paid. Haven't we had enough of those?

Anyone who's alive today will have coal for the rest of their life.

Better stop reading the Al Gore "shock" bulletins.

They're just for the radial global warmers.

Radial warmers? How are those for driving in the snow?

I don't read much Gore. Instead, I prefer the thousands of scientists publishing on this subject.

Here's one. Heads NASA GISS. Brilliant guy. For four decades, the leading expert on Earth's greenhouse warming. He says coal is 80% of our problem, clean coal is non-workable, and outlawing coal is inevitable. I believe him:

Sorry, but the world is too small for that. Now that we know the score, burning coal is much ruder than farting in a crowded elevator. In fact, it's more like starting a fire in a crowded theater.

The amount of coal, oil shale and tar sands we have simply doesn't matter if we cannot burn these materials without trashing our climate and our oceans, and, potentially, melting the vast methane clathrates that litter the continental shelves, triggering a runaway warming cycle of unimaginable destructive power.

It's a small world after all.
