Energy Generation; Coal Plant, Fired; & Mining Problems – Episode 17

Energy Generation

In some cases, we can see a right way to harness this power, but in many instances, these resource are best left untapped because their side effects outweigh their benefits.

Coal Plant, Fired

Bret laid out the idea he had been thinking about since their hike: a coordinated sewing of explosives into open coal trains headed to power plants. The explosives would be made to look like typical pieces of coal and would ride with the rest of the fuel from the storage area to bunkers in the plant. Once in the bunkers, the coal would be milled into fine powder, but when the grinding plates hit the charges, the explosives will go off, crippling the feed system of the plant.

Mining Problems

“What sort of sick individual, indeed, would threaten innocent families by allowing millions of gallons of contaminated water to fester deep underground, only to find its way into the water supply? Kinross, Sunnyside, and myriad other companies, that’s who. They have actually done what we only pretended to do, yet we are branded terrorists?”
