Some disadvantages of clean coal is that it pollutes the air.

Some disadvantages of coal powered plants are; 1. a coal powerplant produces 3700000 tons of CArbon dixode in a year. this is also one of the main causes of global warming. 2. all the mercury taken from the coal has to be disposed, and usually it is disposed in a lake.

No coal is not really environmentally friendly . There are a lot more disadvantages than advantages when it comes to coal.

advantages- its clean. disadvantages- its not as vierment friendly as solar power.

because the coal helps the person to cook if he or she does not have a stove or any cooking materials

Some disadvantages:- Uranium is a toxic and radioactive elementSome advantages:- Uranium is a very important source of energy without any greenhouseeffect; also some countries don't have coal, oil or methane but haveuranium.

Using coal to generate electricity releases many pollutants into the atmosphere. Some contribute to acid rain. Others, like carbon dioxide, contribute to global warming.

As it is one of the natutal resources (Coal, Oil, Natural Gas) one the supply is gone it cannot be replaced.

coal is a nonrenewable resource, so once we use it all we will never have it again. also people get killed in coal mines because they can collapse after a point of time.

There are several disadvantages to burning coal.Even before it is burned, coal mining is a dangerous and difficult job in which people are killed every year, and which often results in black lung disease even for those coal miners who do not die in mining accidents.Burning coal releases several forms of air pollution.It always releases large amounts of carbon dioxide, which is a greenhouse gas that is the major cause of global warming.Some varieties of coal also release significant quantities of sulphur dioxide, which leads to acid rain.Various other impurities in coal, such as mercury, also are released into the air.

Many bad BAD things.. Did I help you..? No okay! :)

Advantages of coal: Coal burns warm and for a long time. Coal produces energy, Coal is easy ti mine. Disadvantages: Coal can spontaneously combust if it is not strategically piled and stacked and separated, also must be rotated throughout its pile. Pollution is another disadvantage of coal. It is also expensive to move around from one coal yard to another.

just somedisadvantagesof coal power .It takes YEARS for debrie to form into coal (debrie=grass dead animals etc.) .It is NON renewable .It is NOT an eco friendly energy source

Burning coal for elstricity has no advandages, it only causes disadvantages like making the air polluted and bad for the workers health.

yaa ...some of the coal shines

While there are some advantages there are still more disadvantages. Burning coal releases harmful gasses such as carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, sulphuric acids and more. Coal mining can destroy large areas of land destroying natural habitats and forcing native animals to move and in some areas the burning of coal can cause acid rain and it is a non-renewable resource so we will eventually run out.

No. Coal is mostly carbon. Sulfur is an element that may be found in some types of coal, but it is not coal.

Advantages... 1. Coal is one of the most abundant sources of energy for mankind. 2. Its good for fire too. Disadvantages... 1. Burning coal is harmful waste such as carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfuric acids, arsenic and ash. 2. Leads to acid rain

What are some ethical concerns about coal

The country was in need of some coal and some MONEY!!!

coal miner .sorry its so vague but that is the only "job in coal"

The coal fire burned nicely.Does your father work in a coal mine?The night was as black as coal.

You can't overcome them! The main disadvantage of coal is that it is a non-renewable fossil fuel. Therefore it will run out in the future. We need to find viable alternative energy sources.
