On April 21, Britain has spent one day without coal. According to the experts, this substance is the biggest polluter of the environment. According to the developed state program, Britain will completely abandon the use of coal until 2025.
Coal-fired power plants no longer generate profits, as the tax on harmful substances that are produced by burning coal has grown significantly.
The British authorities want to completely switch to electricity received through the use of the sun and wind.
The deepest coal mine was closed two years ago. Almost 500 people had worked there. Today in the UK there are still several coal mines.
According to the World Health Organization, the use of coal-fired power plants takes more than 20,000 lives per year.
