The increase in population and industrial development leads to more consumption of coal. However, serious health effects and environmental problems are caused by coal. It releases toxic chemicals which are dangerous if released into the environment. Coal has indicated the capacity to meet such difficulties in the past and the view is that it will successfully meet future environmental difficulties. This study aims to relate the use of coal to the environmental concern that affects the society.
