About: Betting on Trump: Coal | FRONTLINE

Lets burn coal and do it as clean as possible
Next they'll be praying to bring back the steam engine.

Look forward, not back. For example, everything made from oil, needs a sustainable replacement.

So many opportunities for real progress.
I feel bad for the people of coal country. I live near West Virginia and I had family and friends who worked in the mines. I knew from the beginning that Trump would say anything to anyone, make any promise, employ any feel-good technique to get elected. I knew he couldn't do anything for coal, and I knew he was just lying to the people who wanted to save their jobs and improve their health care. But, the mystical magic of the Trump cult drew people in, and they wouldn't listen to people like me who tried to tell them.
I feel sorry for them, but there's alot of other things the state & government can do to make them earn. They can mine/quarry for aggregate & they can plant Marijuana for export
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!!
