    Stupidity reigns supreme once again. You do understand that the cleaner air was due to the provisions put in place since 1975, and the Clean Air Act, or do you?

    Now, since it took 40 years to get to where we are, how long do you think it will take for the Trump EPA to reverse those gains?

    Yeah I know, it can't be about both.

    Maybe, but they are heavily investing in solar power in Iran:

    In any event, only fools believe that coal still has a future in energy production. Most people understand the pollution caused by using coal.
