Philosophical question about coal. Air pollution from coal burning kills, we all know it, and studies prove it.

We can clean up coal such that all the pollutants are completely removed but it creates more CO2 causing more global warming.

Considering the grave energy poverty throughout the world, which issue is more important to address: toxic air pollution killing people today or global warming that may kill us tomorrow?
