The alternative energy sources are much cleaner. If we used well designe wind turbines we would not need coal.

such a sad and frightening contrast to what this land was and what people and beings were able to do in freedom years ago compared to now. There were no poisons then. Greed for money did not exist here.

Hopefully, eventually we will all know how to harness the energy of the sun, cleanly and efficiently for free. Or those that already know how to do this will be free to share their knowledge with the rest of humanity. I can't wait because everything else is costing us our planet!
