OK, we admit it — coal DOES cause asthma

Puff-Puff™ inhalers are available free to any family living within 200 miles of a coal plant, and each inhaler comes with a $10 coupon towards the cost of the asthma medication itself,” advertises the site, which even displays an e-commerce page appearing to offer a dozen different kid-friendly inhaler designs, ranging from My First Inhaler (“baby’s first breath”) to Diamonds (“diamonds are an asthmatic’s best friend”).

For those who want to go beyond health, the site’s “Clean” Energy page focuses on the alleged risks of renewable power sources, with “Facts” including:

Coal power is solar power. That’s because millions of years ago, before coal began to form from decaying organic matter, the sun provided the energy that organic matter required to grow and die.

Wind Kills. Wind turbines can kill up to 70,000 birds per year, or 4.27 birds per turbine per year. Coal particulate pollution, on the other hand, kills fewer than 13,000 people per year.

Solar Burns. In just 30 minutes, a human being absorbs 2.5 million joules of energy from the sun—enough, for most people, to cause sunburn.
