Coal remains the source of energy worldwide. Despite using coal for 94% of its electricity production, South Africa’s electricity demands are still not adequately accounted for and the country plans to open more coal-fired power plants in the years to come. In 2005, 33% of energy used in the world came from coal. Despite the closure of several coal mines in Europe during the past decades (as a result of low returns which did not meet the investment cost) coal mines still exist in many other places with cheaper labour costs. With increasing energy demands, coal mining is expected to continue until at least the mid-twenty-first century, as coal resources are abundant and easily exploited. Nevertheless, coal-fired energy poses a problem because it causes huge pollution, particularly in terms of CO2 emission, which is a greenhouse gas. It also blights the landscape. In order to reduce global warming and to respond to the objectives of the Kyoto Protocol, it’s necessary that we reduce, or discontinue the use of coal.
