Jesus you are the author and finisher of all things, great and small. Jesus help us receive your perfect and perfecting love and forgiveness of the cross. Jesus you told me that if we could fully receive and understand the love and forgiveness of the cross, we would be transformed as a new spirit, a useful witness for Christ Jesus.

Jesus we are standing in victory and not in defeat, because the victory was won on the cross let us praise your great name the name above all names, Christ Jesus our Savior and Lord, amen and amen.

Price of natural gas will go up if we start exporting it.

I m ready coal from mine in Indonesia, please contact me
Coal cannot compete with natural gas, for a power plant operating with coal it cost them three times as much as using natural gas. With Cole it involves miners, a fleet of trucks & drivers, it's three times as expensive than simply using a pipe to bring in natural gas. The coal industry is not coming back, it's on the decline.
lol clean air. If you want clean air regulate nuclear power sensibly and get rid of the Jimmy Carter era ban on recycling nuclear waste. No coal plant in the US does a thing about the radon levels, because of this coal and natural plants emit more radiation then nuclear power plants. It is also more dangerous.

Radon decays into radioactive lead and polonium and it has a 3 day life so concentrated plumes from these plants can hit cities 30 mile away. Nuke plants vent out tritium sometimes and at much lower levels which decays into normal nitrogen.

Oh did I mention that US taxpayers own all of the nuclear waste? That waste is at least 97% of the energy left over waiting to be used. That is why it is still hot. So with that 3% we managed to power 20% of our nation for half a century. 10% if you factor transportation, hvac and cooking.

Not only are we sitting on top of energy independence- but we the people own it, that is why we pay for its storage.
Wind and Solar are useless, expensive, intermittent BS, and provide almost zero energy. Plus they need a 100%/constant backup by coal, gas, diesel or nuclear. And they are really environmentally destructive in every way.
obuma & him/she regs have KILLED OUR COUNTRY!!! LQQK at him/shes auto industry regs coming up, can't do in him/she's time, coal was hit for his alt energy for his buddies as obuma is this COUNTRY's WORST ENEMY & president EVER!!! And this POS is NOT AMERICAN BORN!!! obuma is the 1000% FAKE POS Put in Office By the NWO OWG Islamization Agenda 21 BUTT HEADS along with BIG MIKE to Destroy Christianity in AMERICA!!!! TOTAL POS with him/she's infiltration of OUR Schools with Islam Teachings as the NORM with SEX ED in KIndergarden!!!! WAKE UP AMERICA to This PURE EVIL Running this World NOW!!! JMHO...GBTC&TP...Amen
Let the market decide what goods and services should survive. Stop meddling. Government controlled economy is socialism.
Coal is dead we have not built new plant in 40 years. They are all getting old technology and will be replaced over the next few years. We should not be saving a dead industry in favour of better resources. Who wants to go back to home heated coal fires ?
Yes because trump doesn’t know & care about the air, atmosphere, earth. Do u know how smelly coal is & how bad coal is 2 the human health & lungs & lying traitor trump & trump’s supporters wonder y a lot of people in the coal industry & family members have lung & health problems or die cuz it’s bad 4 your lungs & the human health & 2 breath in but trump doesn’t care cuz trump just wants 2 make money just like that pipe line, trump has stock in the company that makes the pipes so trump doesn’t care if people get sick or die as long as he makes money 2 trump.
What is the reason for having 2 people not in the industry, to answer this question ?
I am a 63 year old moderate independent voter and a retired U.S. Army Master Sergeant (1972-1993). We need to get past the matter of HOW and WHY it’s happening and simply acknowledge that the climate IS changing, and this is obvious to almost anyone who has eyes to see. For instance, ANYBODY who gardens, as I do, knows this to be a fact! As an example; on February 11th, 2017 in my home town in the Arkansas Ozarks it reached a high temperature of 84 degrees, which shattered the previous high record by a LONG ways. Things ARE warming up. Regardless of how it’s happening, or why, CO2 in the atmosphere has increased a fair amount over the last 100 years. Decreasing atmospheric emissions produced by technology of ANY type is not a bad idea for the good of this world and humanity. I do not agree with environmentalist however and their extremist methods, which would stop civilization from progressing, if carried to some of the extremes some of these groups advocate on how to fix climate change. For instance, I do NOT agree with a carbon tax or "carbon trading". Such taxes are just too open to corruption and abuse. We just have to get smarter about how we deal with atmospheric emissions, and the technology currently exists to do this. The technology, such as electric vehicles, exists to move away from more polluting forms of ground transportation and should be encouraged by government mandating the phase out over time of internal combustion engines wherever possible. Coals fired plants should be phased out over time in favor of a combination of natural gas fired plants, thorium powered reactors, geothermal power plants, solar power, wind power, wave power, or ocean thermal power. We also have to recognize that climate change will be a win for some and a loss for others. Those in the far north may stand to gain such as Canada, Scandinavia or Russia as formally frozen areas become more temperate while those in the tropical areas may stand to lose because they become too warm. Coastal cities and low lying islands and areas near oceans will also lose and become inundated over time as sea levels rise. We might not be able to stop this but need to consider how we can mitigate the problems where we can and, in some cases, take advantage of it. As an example; Perhaps it’s time to consider creating floating cities as has been talked about for many years and is very possible with current technology. The bottom line here is we CAN fix this problem if we want to. We just need to be smart about how we do it and get beyond the HOW and WHY of it in order to DEAL with it.

Trust the US to move backwards while everyone else tries moving forward on energy development. MAGA😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
Coal = Blockbuster
Listen people are your memories this short? Trump has claimed to have removed regulations already and that coal has come back. Are you not aware this is just BS?
I am from WV we need those coal jobs here. Coal is WVs primary resource without being able to produce and sell coal we wouldnt have much of a future here. Coal has many uses not just to generate electricity. Besides its BS that wind and solar is cheaper than coal. Take away all the tax payer subsidies that so called green energy gets and power cost would triple.

Diversity is key.
People aren't seeing the bigger picture. Make steel competitive here again, you will then need coal to manufacture said steel.


Coal stock


Coal is extracted from the ground by coal mining, either underground by shaft mining, or at ground level by open pit mining extraction.

Languages:

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.
