Submission Text
Where do we stop the destruction of our planet. Is the health of our environment for sale? Yes. The love of money has trumped our love for this planet. My argument here will be heard only by agents who are concerned with legalities of contracts, when my argument actually is concerned not with that minutiae but in recognizing our mammoth responsibility to begin caring for our environment and the air we breathe that continually circulates the earth. Sure, coal was magnificent when the population of the earth was 800 million people -- but not for 7 billion! It is no longer thinkable that filthy coal is an answer to the energy needs of humans and it is IRRESPONSIBLE for us to burn it or ship it across the street to Asia where they will burn it. Wake up. Please.
