Not a fan of Coal? Neither is the Sierra Club who has released a new video highlighting the dangers of mining, burning and disposing of coal. The goal of the video is to explain problems with coal-powered dirty fuels, the benefits of clean energy, and the need to move the country beyond coal.

“It’s clear that coal is a dirty, dangerous and outdated fuel source that is making kids sick,” said Mary Anne Hitt, director of the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign. “From mining, to burning, to disposal, coal is wreaking havoc on our health and our planet. We hope this video helps viewers better understand the dangers of powering our country by burning coal, and why it is so important that we transition to clean, renewable sources of energy.”

Some examples of a clean, renewable energy future: solar and wind energy.
