Logo of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation, international charitable nonprofit organization providing nature conservation education to all countries on Earth Signature of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation, international charitable nonprofit organization Earth is threatened by burning coal. We need to work together to reduce emissions from coal fired power plants. Conservation education is the mission of Bear Springs Blossom. China a huge country uses energy from coal fired power-plants, without filters high air pollution levels, high water contamination are the result. The rising demand of natural resources endangers future China's population. Because of greenhouse gases as carbon dioxide CO2, Earth is warming up, global temperatures are climbing, methane ice is thawing because air pollution is causing global warming. BSB co2 reduction would lead to a reduced air pollution, less climate change. An increased recycling rate would also reduce Co2 carbon dioxide levels helping ocean conservation, Water conservation, protection of all life, flora + fauna on Earth = human protection, conservation of all water on Earth = human protection, conservation of all soil on Earth = human protection through affordable conservation education online to keep nature beautiful. How to stay alive with violent weather, floods, earthquakes storms, keep earth's glaciers beautiful! Future generation depend on water from glaciers. US industry want to have cheap energy from coal fired power-plants, but the health costs of toxic emission have to be payed by US citizens. United States industry + households have a high energy demand, producing greenhouse gases resulting in climate change. Low education levels resulting in high pollution, low water quality, pushing climate change destruction. United States industry is endangering US water quality. BSB offers news on environmental issues, to see the big picture, to have a better life. Updated conservation news help to stay up to date, to have the information for educated decisions. Great Britain education system does not offer much updated conservation education on water. Nature conservation tells you about Earth' environment. Environmental news to protect air + water + soil + food. BSB-research published in these news helps to keep Nature beautiful + to secure our future! Most schools do not show clearly the connections between education and a better life for humans

Coal - Carbon

Built by Earth in millions of years...


BSB Conservation education to keep Nature beautiful: how plants are buried, pressed become coal - nature education gives you the knowledge to understand why nature conservation is essential for human life
How coal has formed
Coal is
primarily Carbon = chemically C
Secondary:Sulfur, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen and many other chemicals, toxic and non-toxic

Coal Conservation education: BSB coal research shows: Coal burning is the biggest threat to future human life on Earth. Harder forms of coal like steam coal + anthracite needed to be buried and pressed for a very long time period to form

Coal is a fossil fuel, what means that Earth needed millions of years to produce it.
Huge amounts of plants were pressed over millions of years - the longer the pressure the harder the coal.
A lot of the coal deposits on Earth are of Carboniferous age at about 280 to 345 million years.
There are various forms of coal.
Lignite is a young form of coal. But harder forms of coal like steam coal and anthracite needed to be buried and pressed much longer to form.

We have the technologies to use coal in very different ways.
Why are we still burning coal, when we know that is the most inefficient, most resource wasting method?
Coal liquefaction is a great way to get valuable ingredients out of coal. Some countries are using it for half a century!

The problem for all life on Earth is that humans are burning fossil fuels in a very short time!
The plants removed CO2 = carbon dioxide for hundred-thousands of years, now humans release the CO2 trapped in the coal in a very short time.
conservation education explains why burning coal is bad for Earth, endangering life. Green living, environmental behavior opposes coal burning, because of global warming, climate change, higher food prices Conservation education explains why burning coal produces a lot of air pollution, mercury, dioxins
Look at this chart!
Can You see a trend?
BSB conservation education explains why burning coal is dangerous for Earth, endangering life. Sustainable living, environmental behavior opposes coal burning, because of global warming, climate change, higher food prices
Look at the coal consumption!
Do you think humans change our atmosphere when burning these amounts of coal?
Humans burn coal for energy!
Humans get health problems from air pollution!
Children get learning disorders from coal burning!
Ten thousands of people die every year, because managers look only for profit
without taking any responsibility!
Did you hear about 'clean coal'?
We could not find any research that there is a way to burn coal clean.
Read our information - get the facts!
Even if a coal fired power plant sequestered all its carbon pollution, and if a coal fired power-plant would abate carbon pollution from other sources,
coal can never be called "clean"!
1) Getting coal out of the ground is very destructive to human health, ecosystems and human communities.

2) Washing coal to prepare it for transport leaves behind lake-sized pools of toxic slurry, which regularly fail and flood nearby communities.

3) Transporting coal is carbon-intensive and destructive. Gigantic trucks drive downhill on narrow roads carrying enormous coal loads trailing toxic dust.

Coal trains, running 24 hours a day, lock up a big part of our country's rail infrastructure, which could otherwise be used for low-carbon freight shipping.

4) Burning coal produces huge quantities of heavy metal-laden coal ash, causing additional air pollution, endangering local communities with flying ash.

Fact is, that efforts in recent decades to scrub air pollutants out of coal fired power-plant smokestacks in response to Clean Air Act requirements have led to more coal ash, as pollutants are effectively transferred from the air to the ash, where they are far less strictly regulated.

Coal burning releases in the air:
A) CO2
B) Sulfur dioxide
C) Nitrogen oxide
D) volatile organic compounds
E) Mercury
F) Arsenic
G) Lead
H) Cadmium
A report from the National Research Council shows, that coal's air pollution-related health impacts alone represent about $62 billion a year in hidden costs.
Think about the costs of coal-related water pollution,
the cost of cleaning up after coal slurry floods,
the cost of ceding rail infrastructure,
the loss of some of America's oldest, most bio-diverse forests.

Should a company not pay for the damages it causes instead of letting the public pay?
The total sum of damages is enormous.

Massey’s mine in Montcoal has been cited for over 3,000 violations, over $2.2 million in fines
Massey Energy is actively contesting millions of dollars of fines for safety violations at its West Virginia coal mine where disaster struck again, 25 miners were killed and another four are missing after a explosion took place.

Think about, how much truth is in the advertisement of a "100 percent clean" coal fired power plant.
BSB coal information chart: How much electricity is produced by coal fired power-plants in the US changing our weather, our climate, learn online about nature conservation, update your nature education
More than 300 local, state and national organizations, have sent a letter to the White House asking for movement on proposed federal regulations for coal ash disposal.
WHY?
Continued delay in the issuance of federal regulations for the disposal of the 136 million tons of toxic coal combustion waste generated annually is dangerous and unacceptable. Unmitigated harm continues to threaten the lives and environment of millions of Americans

Mexico environmental problems include not enough affordable nature conservation education to expand food production - Spain offers to little conservation education courses - members from Argentina help to spread the word of nature conservation, nature education - - Indonesia cuts down a lot of tree. Missing nature conservation education leads to deforestation, water contamination, erosion problems because of deforestation, endangering marine life and humans - China has a growing population, more energy, more food, nature conservation education is very low on the to do list - German schools offer conservation education, but a lot of people are too busy to learn new things

BSB research: Science definition Biodiversity means that every living being looks a little bit different, that babies do not look alike, that we have different plants, different health problemsBiodiversity

BSB recycling facts: Recycling to save resources! All raw materials and all energy are provided by our blue planet Earth, but they are NOT endless. Unfortunately, most of the provided raw materials + energy are not usable as they appear in Nature and are spread globally in deposits. Men need to use a lot of energy + resources to produce the materials we need. We have to collect, clean, concentrate, and transform these resources to generate primary raw materials that are usable for people and industry. Using recycled materials reduces the amount of energy + reduces the amount of materials we have to dig out! Most of all things we use can be recycled!
