The climate apocalypse alarmists are looking more than a little discredited with their claims of solar and wind energy’s reliability and low cost, the escalations of global warming, and more frequent extreme weather events.

Their ultimate threat of the imminent death of all life on earth, solely from human-generated carbon dioxide-based warming, is implausible. These are extravagant exaggerations, at best. It is overdue to re-examine the very energy source that is the subject of the fiercest ire: coal.
