5) Coal burning produces 1.5 times the CO2 emissions of oil and twice that of natural gas [2].

"Coal burning produces one and a half times more CO2 emissions than does burning oil and twice that from burning natural gas (to produce an equal amount of energy).

"Coal accounted for 25% of global energy consumption in 2005, but generated 41% of the CO2 emissions that year.

"In the United States, coal produces just over 50% of the electricity, but generates over 80% of the CO2 emissions from the utility sector..

"The energy penalty from CCS (25-40%) would increase the amount of coal mined, transported, processed, and combusted, and the waste generated."
