Oil Is Not the Climate Change Culprit — It’s All About Coal | Wired Science from Wired.com.

Recent research shows that it’s not driving cars that’s really responsible for climate change and pollution: It’s burning coal. The thousands of coal burning plants around the world that help us to keep our lights on in the late hours of the night are making our planet Earth heat up like never before. Replacing that coal with oil is not a good answer, but we should really make a real effort to improve the cost effectiveness of alternative power creation methods. Spending $2 trillion to build = windmills in the US wouldn’t be such a bad idea.
