The electric power sector has been the largest consumer of coal in the United States since surpassing the industrial sector in 1961. The electric power sector used about 92% of coal consumed in the United States in 2019 to generate electricity and useful thermal output (heat). Most of the remaining U.S. coal is used directly by the industrial sector, such as in the industries that produce coal coke, concrete, paper, and steel.

Coal Through a Microscope
June 18 | jpum.net

This is a highly magnified view of coal in transmitted light. The large yellow object in the center of this image is a spore - a reproductive cell of the coal-forming vegetation. It is about two millimeters long. The spore was probably round before it became part of the coal-forming plant debris. It was squeezed flat after burial. The thin red bands running horizontally across this view are thin shreds of well-preserved woody material. The tiny yellow and orange particles are smaller spores and algal debris. The black material is either charcoal or opaque mineral matter. This coal does not contain a lot of well-preserved wood. Instead it is mostly charcoal and mineral debris. The material in this view is representative of coal that formed under conditions that were not ideal for the preservation of plant material.

Signs like this on private property indicate that the property owner does NOT want people collecting agates on their land. There may be various reasons for this: They want to avoid potential liability, they simply don't want people on their land, they want the agates for their own personal use, or the agates are valuable. Believe it or not, some agates sell for a lot of money.

Each spring, the Canadian Arctic is the site of a fierce battle between water and ice. The flow of the Mackenzie River in Northwest Territories, swollen with meltwater, helps break up river ice and pushes north toward the Arctic Ocean. In some places, intact ice resists the pulses of water and spurs flooding. But spring warmth always prevails, and by summer the river flows freely into the Beaufort Sea.

From the faculty member's perspective, presenting a course in a classroom is much easier than presenting a course of similar quality online. The instructor can demonstrate, draw, and if enrollment numbers are small enough, interact with students frequently and directly "in the moment of instruction".

If the instructor is more than a "talking head" and the robot can move its view to the whiteboard, to the projection screen, and to the demonstration table, then a richer learning environment is possible - compared to what is possible with recorded lectures and demonstrations.

But, these things will require robots that have eyes and heads that can follow the instructor and be controlled and received by the student. Or, a staff member in the classroom with equipment to follow the instructor's movements. And the faculty member will need a projection screen in the back of the classroom that displays each student in the class. As in the classroom, the quality of instruction and student experience will decline as enrollment increases.

Volcanic Explosivity Index: The spheres in the illustration above represent the volume of erupted tephra for some of the most widely-known explosive volcanic eruptions. Although most people believe that Vesuvius (79 AD - the Pompeii eruption), Mount St. Helens (1980), and Mount Pinatubo (1991) were enormous, they are very small compared to ancient eruptions such as Wah Wah Springs, Toba, Yellowstone, or Long Valley Caldera.

In 2019, U.S. annual energy consumption from renewable sources exceeded coal consumption for the first time since before 1885. This outcome mainly reflects the continued decline in the amount of coal used for electricity generation over the past decade as well as growth in renewable energy, mostly from wind and solar.

The Northwest Passage is a sea route that connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans through the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.

However, in recent years, climate change is allowing commercial traffic to pass through the Arctic Ocean via this once-impossible route.
