If we got rid of coal plants would that be enough to end global warming?

    If we somehow completely got rid of coal to generate electricity and found an entirely clean alternative, then it might be. The production of electricity accounts for roughly 40% of global CO2 emissions, so it would certainly have a huge impact. However there are some studies by the NOAA that suggest that too much CO2 has been absorbed by our oceans and our planet – so trade offs with the atmosphere and these components could potentially keep global warming in play for up to another 1,000 years even if CO2 emissions were halted completely.
