The lowest cost producer – coal

I found this article very interesting that I re-read it many times.

An extract from the article includes, “Coal emissions must fall by four-fifths in one pathway to 1.5C”

What I don’t seem to find in calls for burning less coal, is that coal fired power remains (generally) cheap and also simple to operate.

This translates to it being cheaper.

We can also argue that western based resources companies shouldn’t mine and sell coal and we should limit our general consumption BUT it remains a fact, that the lowest cost producer prevails in many cases.

Using coal is overwhelmingly an economic topic.
