The Coal Industry Knows That Enviros Are Winning

The coal industry is worried about environmental threats. Not threats like climate change, superstorms, or wildfires. Threats posed by environmentalists.

The heyday of Big Coal is past, but the existing plants will continue to pollute and emit CO2 for many years to come. We need to stop all new plants from being built, get existing ones shuttered (dirtiest first), and invest renewables and energy conservation to replace the electric demand. The job is far from finished, but it is good to reflect on how far we've come.

Noted. What war on coal?....she asked innocently. Yeah, environmentalists have been working hard; I don't know how many petitions I've signed or letters I've sent to stop mountaintop removal and other awful things. But, unfortunately, Pres. Obama thinks it's perfectly OK to replace coal with fracking and the KXL. We just have to keep working hard to let him know how strongly we object.

Why don't they just convert and make the business move already??? When it comes down to it all they care about is money and making it. Work together to make our world a better place already!!
