3. U.S. is moving backwards, not forwards. In December 1952, in London England, there

was an air inversion that lasted about a week. It killed 6000 people over the course of time. Because of that one incident, cities passed laws that forbid the use of coal for heating. Over time, coal was going to be outlawed for use in electric power plants. I guess Trump wants to reverse that. This shows that Trump is a complete stupid idiot. The Number 1 idiot in the world, and a very dim bulb. (less than 5 watts. yes, that is dim)

Here is a link on that killer smog:

Side story about that. Cities around the world outlawed coal burning furnaces for heat. Each city passed its own laws on when that was to be done. In 54 or 55, for a reason I didn't know, my dad and my uncle, changed our furnace in our two family 2 story apartment, from coal burning to oil burning. Perhaps they said that it was for "legal" reasons cause the City of Chicago mandated it. But I didn't know till I became an adult and read about this, " London Smog" that the real reason became clear.
