These are great videos on CNN Money with Robert Kennedy, Jr.
Robert Kennedy Jr. argues that coal’s external costs are enormous and the industry is bad for mining states.
And then this video: “Kennedy on energy alternatives“
Robert Kennedy Jr. cites other countries’ efforts as evidence that renewables are good for the U.S. economy.
While we in our tiny town of Dendron and Surry County, and the whole of Hampton Roads are in a fight to keep yet another coal plant from being built, it’s so encouraging to see videos like these.
Thank you Robert Kennedy Jr. for speaking out where others might be intimidated to do so; or drawn into the so called ‘promise’ of monetary compensation or the so called ‘promise’ of jobs that will be short-lived if at all, to look beyond all that, and truly see the real dangers that are far reaching.
We do need to go to renewable energy regardless if you believe in global warming or not. It just makes sense economically. And we need to take care of our planet; to provide a healthy future for our children and grandchildren.
Thanks Joe for the link!
