“The UK and Canada have launched a global alliance of 20 countries committed to phasing out coal for energy production.
Members including France, Finland and Mexico, say they will end the use of coal before 2030.
Ministers hope to have 50 countries signed up by the time of the next major UN conference in Poland next year.”
See UK and Canada lead alliance against coalGood for Canada! Burning coal to release energy captured by life millions of years ago is a silly thing in the face of global warming. Trump will not be around forever and even USA will see the light. USA has been weaning itself off coal just based on the price of natural gas. When USA’s coal markets shrink the decline of coal mining will be even faster. Trump’s rants and empty promises are just a tempest in a teapot. This is one war Trump will lose despite all his might and fury.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. I do not care whether my solution is the same as yours. I like to think for myself.
My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. I have been blessed by working in schools where students and school systems have benefited by good, modular software easily installed in most systems.
I have shown GNU/Linux to thousands of students and hundreds of teachers over the years and will continue in some way doing that until I die in spite of the opposition.
