About: Betting on Trump: Coal | FRONTLINE

Stop reproducing fool.
All these poor saps, bingo Bob, trusted this fool Trump. So sad, they have no information and education to know that coal is gone back to the earth. Poor stupid fools
Trump did bring coal mining back. This report needs to be updated reflecting what Donald Trump did.
70% of those voters got shafted....and no coal was involved....because they heard what they wanted to hear not was is....ignorance is bliss
Hey, trumptard hick.. learn birth control. Make sure if ur in poverty, have as many kids as possible.
Trump was lying to you!
He says as he's sucking on an oxygen tank! No such thing as, "clean coal!"
Get ur ass up and get into solar!
Trying to stop the unstoppable. There was a time coal mining didn't exist, the technology of the time enabled that line of work, now technology will enable another line of work. Things change and that's it.
Very biased in favour of the right wing
Why is he not doing a course in clean energy, to both work and help the planet as well.
Trump ain't gonna last too long and coal mining is gonna disappear with him
These good hard working people can move to solar and wind. We need them there!
Ok America this is what needs to be done...we heard we are gonna bring back jobs to America....then do it trump and re train these folks so they can support there bout some of trumps businesses that are over seas..put them to work
US power plants have much stricter pollution and miner health controls than elsewhere in the world. They have a lot of work to do to clean up their problem before we shut down coal here.
So hows all them coal jobs coming back for you..fools !
The government needs to step in and help these people get out of these dying rural towns and into coastal cities, and get trained for jobs that aren't disappearing
The film makers at Frontline can get the facts straight when all other news networks can't or won't!!! Remember that Trump AND Hillary Clinton supporters!!
it would be better for you guys to go sun power & get plant that makes wind mills & solar batteries & make some jobs & the best thing about that is no more power bill & no one getting sick.
Recent employment numbers showed 50,000 new jobs in energy but almost none in coal. The new jobs were in renewable energy which is where these people need to be looking for work.
well what did president twit do
Coal is dieing a slow but certain death. These people in W.Va. and Kentucky want to believe Trump and there's your problem. He can't jumpstart an industry that is obsolete. These people live in some kind of a fantasy to believe that it's going to make a comeback. Sad.

Coal stock

Coal is primarily used as a solid fuel to produce electricity and heat through combustion. World coal consumption was about 7.25 billion tonnes in 2010 The price of coal increased from around $30.00 per short ton in 2000 to around $150.00 per short ton as of September 2008. In early 2015, it was trading near $56/ton.
