Never Woulda Thunk It

I've watched in horror the assassination of a President, watched with awe a total eclipse of the sun and watched with amazement as the first man stepped foot on the moon.  But I never dreamed I'd live to see this...

For the first time since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution a major industrial nation went a full day without using coal to generate electricity.  Last Friday was a coal-free day for Britain.   It is believed to be the first time the nation has not used coal to generate electricity since the world's first centralized public coal-fired generator opened in 1882 in London, England.
