Coal Use Grows Despite Warming Worries

There's always, always a fucking second shoe. First shoe?
Almost nonstop, gargantuan 145-ton trucks rumble through China's biggest open-pit coal mine, sending up clouds of soot as they dump their loads into mechanized sorters.

The black treasure has transformed this once-isolated crossroads nestled in the sand-sculpted ravines of Inner Mongolia into a bleak boomtown of nearly 300,000 people. Day and night, long and dusty trains haul out coal to electric power plants and factories in the east, fueling China's explosive growth.

People loves their power and couldn't care less what hideous things produce it.

Oh well, they'll learn if they don't all die first.
