Coal has served as a useful fuel for a long time. The real issues are suspended matter and poisonous components. The coal could be refined starting with gasification. Carbon dioxide is really quite a bland product. The nature recycles it using solar energy and we the producers could find more efficient ways. It could take decades but we could survive that.

Dominion's latest 15-year forecast calls for more solar, but draws fire over demand projections

Quote:
The utility, which has nearly 2.5 million electric customers in Virginia, also plans to decommission up to 2,785 megawatts of older coal, natural gas and oil by 2021 or 2022 at six Virginia sites. A little less than half of those plants will be placed into “cold reserve” by the end of this year. A biomass power plant in Pittsylvania County is also headed for mothballing.


and what will replace them?

Quote:
Dominion, which is also the lead partner in the controversial, 600-mile Atlantic Coast Pipeline, says it plans eight new natural gas-fired power plants producing up to 3,664 megawatts of electricity. The plants are smaller combustion turbine power stations, not the giant combined-cycle plants Dominion has in Greensville and Brunswick counties. Each would produce about 450 megawatts, said Dominion spokesman David Botkins.


The "renewable" increases are just window-dressing. Today's utilities are replacing coal with gas and a smattering of wind and solar to keep the greenies at bay.
