While we were in Ash Grove I was lucky enough to catch a coal train rip through town. I wasn't fast enough to get close to the tracks but decided to walk back and catch the other cars waiting on the train.
I imagine the people in those waiting cars thought I was nuts.
These coal trains are like the blood of America. The coal originates in the Powder River Basin area of Wyoming and move all over the county supplying our coal fired power plants. We as Americans have basically chosen coal because we are afraid of nuclear power. In the meantime these coal plants spew out tons of carbon emissions and cause acid rain. I wonder which is really best?
I will leave this question for you all to ponder and debate. Have a great Wednesday.
