Britain Just Went a Week Without Coal Since 1882
According to Gizmodo.com, Britain Just Went a Week Without Coal For the First Time in 137 Years.
National Grid, the electric company that provides power for Britain, announced the milestone on Tuesday in a tweet.
The milestone is largely symbolic, but reflects how the world can increasingly operate without the dirtiest fossil fuel.
According to Gizmodo, the milestone is a reminder that coal is in its death throes, at least in a growing number of developed countries.
