Alberta has the technology to mitigate coal-fired power plant emissions and reclaim useful elements, directly from the stack.  It is already in use at Boundary Dam in Saskatchewan.

USING TECHNOLOGY TO ADDRESS COAL PLANT EMISSIONS

 

Alberta faces the risk of blackouts due to coal phase-out and market uncertainty – as well as more medical costs due to heat-or-eat poverty from increased costs.  Of course, the > $22 billion in coal phase-out costs will fall on consumers.

Thre is evidence that vested interests are skewing public information on coal in order to push expensive wind and solar (which would not have a market without the climate catastrophe theory).
