ABSTRACT
The article reports on coal as an energy resource. Coal burning is the cause of 40% of the world's emissions of carbon dioxide, which is thought to be a major cause of global warming. However, the price of coal is dropping, making it more affordable than natural gas and oil. The financial crises is slowing the process of creating clean coal plants or using methods of burning coal which cut emissions, as these options are more expensive.
