“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. 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. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
