Coal Extraction and Energy Production Impacts on Birds

Without proper care, coal mining (both surface and subsurface) can destroy land and pollute water. When coal is then burned to produce energy, it gives off carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas that is linked with global warming. Burning coal also produces emissions, such as sulfur, nitrogen oxide, and mercury that can pollute the air and water.
