Old King Coal

(March 19, 2012) Listen to Energy Probe’s Parker Gallant on “Demon Coal” – an in-depth look at the fossil fuel that made the industrial revolution happen, it’s demonization in the 21st century, and why coal is still a fuel of the future.


“Demon Coal” is a two-part series, aired by Canada’s CBC Radio One documentary show, Ideas.

To listen to parts one and two, see www.cbc.ca/ideas.

Mr. Gallant is featured in Part 2 of this series.

From the CBC website: Coal is dirty, toxic, abundant and cheap. Mining it disfigures the earth. Using it for fuel or electricity generation is unsustainable. Burning it emits deadly pollutants and greenhouse gases and is the major cause of global warming. Right? In this new two-part series, environmentalists and energy scientists, in conversation with Max Allen, explain why much conventional wisdom about coal in the 21st century is just plain wrong.

Max Allen, a producer for Ideas, as well as the co-founder and curator of the Textile Museum of Canada, sits on the board of Energy Probe’s parent organization, Energy Probe Research Foundation.
