    What a shame! not!

    Trump's push to save coal is failing. Coal demand to plunge to 42-year low




    President Donald Trump's mission to revive America's coal industry is failing.

    US power plants are expected to consume less coal next year than at any point since President Jimmy Carter was in office, according to government forecasts released on Tuesday.

    Although Trump has tried to boost coal by slashing environmental regulations and installing a former coal lobbyist to lead the EPA, coal keeps losing ground to cleaner and cheaper alternatives. Power companies are rapidly retiring coal-fired power plants and replacing them with dirt-cheap natural gas and increasingly affordable renewable energy.

    Coal is dying due to NG

    What increasingly affordable renewable source other than Nike and hydro is pushing coal out?

    Also ...the trade war with China has killed the U.S. coal export market to the world's biggest coal importer

    Hey Coal Miners, tired of so much winning?

    As long as human beings populate the Earth, coal will always be an asset.

    Mother Gaia put coal in the Earth for what?

    To burn it. What the hell else are we supposed to do with it?

    Maybe the next democrat nominee for president should campaign on shutting them down completely.

    While the U.S. is relying less on coal (and going to cleaner energies is not a bad thing), the Chinese are ramping up. This has always been one of the major problems of the Paris Climate accords -- no responsibility on the part of major polluters (China, India) to meet the goals.

    While the rest of the world has cut coal-based electricity over the past 18 months, China has added enough to power 31 million homes.

    That's according to a study that says China is now in the process of building or reviving coal equivalent to the EU's entire generating capacity. China is also financing around a quarter of all proposed coal plants outside its borders. Researchers say the surge is a major threat to the Paris climate targets.

    The researchers say that through 2018 and up to June 2019, countries outside of China cut their coal power capacity by 8.1 gigawatts (GW). In the same period, China added 43GW, enough to power around 31 million homes.

    The authors say that right now the amount of coal power under construction or under suspension and likely to be revived is about 147.7GW, an amount that is almost the same as the entire coal generating capacity of the European Union (150GW). Compared to the rest of the world, China is building about 50% more coal plants than are under construction in all other countries combined.

    Just because you CAN do something doesn't mean you SHOULD. Coal served its purpose, time to move forward.
