Hendryx is a national expert on coal’s real-world impacts. Unlike the front group operatives that the coal industry underwrites to move its claims in the court of public opinion, it’s reasonable to assume that he doesn’t make any more money if his research finds that coal’s arguments bear out in the real world - or not. That means his conclusions are worth repeating:
coal’s “clean” claims are absurd
coal spokespeople claiming it’s an abundant fuel supply are “simply lying”
the coal technology (from mining to using coal to produce energy) is an economic “loser.”
