Coal Mining Reports
We have plenty of coal mining reports coming from all around the world that state a variety of things and it is hard to make sense of which ones are which and which ones are the most important ones to pay attention to. Some reports say that with the rate that coal is being mined today, if we do not slow down soon, then we will run out of mines, we will run out of coal, and we will run out of electricity and steel. These are usually used as a springboard for some other agenda that is bigger than just coal and usually encompasses an entire environmental campaign for the betterment of the environment all around the world. A lot of these reports are idealistic and the source of them is sometimes dubious. Other coal mining reports state that at the rate we are mining coal now and at the rate we are discovering new mines, it is silly to think we could ever run out of coal, and these reports end up trying to discredit the other kinds of reports. However the origins of those results are dubious as well because the people behind that have just as much of a personal agenda that is pro coal mining, as the other groups do that is against mining. You never really want to put your faith and trust in someone whose motives you can’t really trust as well.
The best way to find accurate coal mining reports is to look at official government sanctioned documents that state how much coal is out there to be mined and how much we are mining currently. Then do some calculations to see just how sustainable this is and leave out imaginary factors such as what would happen if we found a new mine because honestly even if we do, we cannot calculate accurately without knowing anything for sure. Once that is done make sure to account for growth as well. Each year demand for electricity increases and this is because each year the population increases and this must be accounted for. You’ll eventually come up with some kind of number that seems like it is correct and that will tell you approximately how many years we have left at the rate that we are going and how sustainable this activity really is. IT may be more difficult to calculate this all yourself, but you never want to trust a report that has a bottom line message. You just want the straight up facts because everyone out there is biased.
