OK seems like its all going to be about co2 for a while until that wears out..
Even though I have brought it up multiple times and even shown google maps satellite url/views of new HELE coal stations being built I will point it out again. New HELE coal power-station being built in the UAE https://goo.gl/maps/Drgyx1ns6Kn https://goo.gl/maps/hUjWahD9aho
When those of you arguing that coal is killing everyone while drinking a can of coke and eating junk food please understand that HELE coal power-stations, by default, the cheapest versions of them, only emit co2 as everything else is filtered out (up to 99%).
So its no different than you breathing out 40,000ppm co2.
The more expensive HELE coal power-station versions can capture and store the co2, but the cost per MWh is more expensive of course.

Producing electricity from coal can result in the release of trace elements, such as mercury, selenium and arsenic and varying degrees of oxides of sulphur (SOx) and nitrogen (NOx), which can be harmful to human health and the environment. Cleaner coal technologies, such as electrostatic precipitators, fabric filters, selective catalytic reduction systems, wet and dry scrubbers, sorbents and activated carbon injection can reduce the emissions of pollutants from coal combustion by between 90% and 99.9% by stripping out the pollutants before they are emitted in the atmosphere through the smokestack.
I made a meme, "Let's Make Coal Cool Again". I know this may sound amusing, but I had this silly idea that if the government could pay GnR a billion dollars to be the ambassador of clean coal, GNR would accept it. This could make coal more accepted and keep the world going until more practical long-term technologies arrive like the Bill Gates Nuclear reactor, which uses nuclear waste as fuel and is cheaper than coal. Even though paying GnR a billion dollars seems like a waste of money I think its cheaper in the long run and will reduce economic burden and pain than what renewables are causing in states. ( States like South Australia where they cant afford to even recycle stuff because electricity to process it is too expensive http://www.news.com.au/finance/economy/ ... f72faec181
I think GnR being quite a popular group from a wide audience age range, they would be the best choice to be the ambassador of clean coal.

The reason why co2 ppm levels can be 10 times higher inside
than outside is because of YOU
and your "pollutant" co2 generating lungs. Humans are carbon-based, because carbon is one of the most abundant elements in the universe, oxygen binds to your carbon as it processed in your body and pass out of your lungs, generating co2. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carbon-based_life
The whole "what about the carbon cycle" argument is really just a red-herring/chewbacca-defense used to complicate the argument ( https://youtu.be/clKi92j6eLE
), its totally moronic
, because with carbon and oxygen being the 3 and 4th most abundant elements in the entire universe, where these elements sit really doesn't matter, just as carbon base humans merely breathing generates an incredible amount of co2. Two Oxygen atoms easily to bind to a single atom of carbon and become a gas, that's why co2 gas is so easily created.
Its the generation of co2 that is the biggest factor, that is what is important to atmospheric co2 ppm readings.
As this video shows, you exhale 100x more co2 than you inhaled with every breath.
