    1 kWh = 1 Person Day.

    Coal makes it possible to have 100 person days for < $10.

    That saves lives. That makes it possible to get more done with less people. We can harvest more grain, extract more oil, process more goods and make them available cheaper to more people. Less people have to be in harms way (those miners don't swing axes anymore).

    Cheap power saves lives.

    This is pure FUD.

    Sorry but coal saves more lives every day than ever have died. Coal miners are definitely at risk and can die in the course of their jobs or as a side effect of the exposure they receive. People dying as a result of coal putting pollution put in the atmosphere is completely irrational. There was a time when the coal stacks made London a moderately deadly place. Today, that just isn't the case.

    Coal saves lives way more than it takes them away.

    It makes electricity cheap.
