"coal should be banned completely" Don't rush it unless you want to pay more for your electric, like three times as much because that's what it would take and possibly more. There's not enough pipelines to transport natural gas to create the power, so they'll have to ship more by rail and by truck which makes it cost more and creates more pollution than piping it does. Plus, they'll have to convert those coal plants or shut them down and build new ones, so it's all going to cost plenty and you can better believe it'll be passed on to YOU, ME and EVERYONE and it won't be cheap. I'm already poor enough as it is, so DON'T rush it! Just like you don't want to rush other things as you'll be paying $1.55 a liter but more like $1.80 to $2 a liter for fuel sooner than later.
