If we were to get rid of coal fired power plants in the world would global warming even be an issue?

    While I don’t think it would completely get rid of the problem, it would certainly help against global warming. Approximately one-third of carbon dioxide emissions come from coal, and some experts warn that if we don’t cut coal consumption by 80% in 40 years, we will face dire consequences resulting from global warming (1). However, coal is not the only problem. Many other factors lead to global warming, including deforestation, use of gasoline, and CFC’s released from aerosol cans and styrofoam. So though coal reduction certainly would help, global warming would still be an issue.
