Clean Coal Technology: Climate Change & The Miners


Product Information

David John Douglass, 2013. From the Introduction:

"Across the world and throughout the global media the 'climate change industry' has reached hysterical screams of anguish over global warming, which they one and all attribute to CO2 and princiaplly to coal powered generation of electricity. Those of us with a life time involvement in coal mining, and the struggle to save the British branch of that industry, argue that it is possible to have coal mining, coal power generation and an almost total elimination of CO2 being released into the atmosphere. Thatcher and Major's assault on the mines and the miners had nothing whatever to do with 'green' or environmental concerns and were entirely politically class motivated. The struggle for the survival of the mines and the miners is likewise politically class motivated on our behalf. Our vision of society and social values is radically opposed to theirs. The dominance of our industry as a social lever in the class struggle was the main reason they ended up shutting 99.95% of it down, and our reason why we fought then to save it, and now to reconstruct it. The new wave of largely middle and upper class 'greens' who intervene today in this struggle and demand the end to coal power, we regard with grave suspicion. although their motives are deemed to be of the highest environmental credentials, their class accents and origins tend to make us suspect that these are Thatcher's children and grandchildren who at last can agree on something with their parents and grandparents round the xmas dinner table, they all hate the miners. We are offered 'a just transition' but all this means is us doing what they have decided, that our views on energy generation and climate must be ignored. We find nothing 'just' in this. Do we have a strategy which can meet the demands of the 'greens' presuming their motives are sincere?"
