Then you could prevent putting all those miners families out on the street because you panicked over rumors. Truth be told coal is cleaner than some of these 8775 experts 8776 will lead you to believe. Before you assume that natural gas burns cleaner, I would suggest you do a liitle better research. China is in fact not the only mines using these new scrubbers. Many if not all US mines use them.
