This week's teaser comes from: Powering the Dream: The History and promise of Green Technology by Alexis Madrigal

"Coal is a flammable rock. You can put it in a pail and carry it to your house. Or, you can pack it into one hundred cargo containers and load it onto a rain. It's plentiful and spread pretty evenly around the world.Take a pound of it. Burn it completely and you would generate ten thousand British Thermal Units (BTUs) of heat. Dirty and heavy, coal has exactly one thing going for it: price." (pg 201)
