Sadly, we probably won't until the very last of all fossil fuels are gone, and then there will be a panic. Should we be doing something else now? Yes, absolutely. Will we? Likely not.

Yes! Leave it and forget about it. Renewable energy is the way to go.

In my opinion it should be left in the ground, but....It is all very well having a UN spokesperson demanding that all coal be left in the ground, but without reasonably priced alternatives, many countries will be reluctant to abandon their fossil fuels any time soon.
In the case of the US and Canada, we have the fossil fuels until we get some d*m alternatives, so it should be left in the ground, instead of shipping to China.
