COAL remains a very important product for the modern economy that is very reliant on energy. While it is a low cost source of energy, it also has a very problematic impact on the environment because of the emission of CO2, a greenhouse gas that is responsible to some extent for climate change and global warming. Responsible coal mining, transportation and combustion is important, and the facts suggest that investment in research and deployment of something like carbon capture and sequester (CSS) might be worthwbile.

  44. 44. Follow up: Request for Feedback Getting these ideas fleshed out into a clear, simple but comprehensive structure is a big job and remains a work-in- progress. Many organizations are making progress with this, but there is no broad universal framework yet that will enable all the pieces to come together and work efficiently. I would like to get feedback from anyone and everyone to help move this initiative forward. While I have some clear concepts about much of this architecture, there are many details that I do not know enough about and need help. So, please feel free to contact me (peterbnyc@gmail.com). Please put something relevant and catchy in the subject line. MULTI DIMENSION IMPACT ACCOUNTING
