Water Power: how our energy sources impact water

This week Canada announced it was phasing out coal use for making electricity by 2030 even though 4 Provinces still burn coal to boil water to turn a turbine to generate a current. Steam engine technology is 300 years old and it's at work everyday in the Great Lakes for coal (in all 8 U.S. states) and for nuclear power (7 U.S. states and Ontario). 

The lifecycle and controlled explosions of coal and uranium on this planet are at the heart of our water dystopia.
