How long will our current coal supplies last?



  1. 0 Votes

    At our current rate of consumption, our coal supplies will last around 250 years.  However, it will become increasingly expensive to mine the coal.  Also, we have steadily been increasing our rate of consumption throughout the past hundred years or so, so it really depends on that.  Hopefully with the new steps towards alternative energy the our rate of consumption will decrease and those supplies will last until we are completely coal independent.
