My tour of the Greenpeace boat yesterday was great! The Arctic Sunrise icebreaker actually used to be a sealing boat and has had an eventful history. It is traveling at full capacity (30 ppl) up the east coast raising awareness about it's latest "Quit Coal" campaign. Here are 6 Coal Myths (from a Greenpeace handout)
- Coal is cheap and renewables are expensive.
- We need coal to keep the lights on.
- Coal is clean.
- The U.S. has 200 years of coal to burn.
- Coal means jobs.
- "Clean Coal" will allow us to burn coal while protecting the climate.
I highly suggest you go check out the boat for yourself!
