About: Coal industry rebounding, thanks to Trump’s policies
US coal consumption is projected to decline by nearly 4% in 2018 to the lowest level since 1979. In 2017, 529 coal-fired power generators were permanently shut down; in 2018, another 11 gigawatts of coal-fired generating capacity were retired through September and an additional 3 gigawatts are slated for retirement by year-end.
COAL NEVER CAME BACK!https://e360.yale.edu/features/why_us_coal_industry_and_its_jobs_are_not_coming_back
How many wild fires how many must burn to dearh...how many huge floods and storms? How much longer can you stay in denial while the earth fucks us all up? Note i am not a Democrat.
Dept if Defense are now using microgrids because they are more secure than a coal fired grid. Russia has already hacked national power grids. If the Army feel secure with their bases using renewables as backup then so should everyone.
Coal is not
coming back. Coal is dying fast and a few band-aids won't change that. The Pony Express is gone; telegraph operators are gone; switchboard operators are gone. What else will soon be gone? Cashiers, checking accounts, and the coal industry. Progress takes no prisoners.
There's more coming!! Trump is pushing back hard on those fighting his agenda in bringing back coal and the jobs he promised during his campaign.
The administration is preparing a move using the Defense Production Act (DPA), which allows the federal government to intervene in markets during national security emergencies. Experts have long argued that coal’s decline is a national security issue, because the renewable energy it’s being replaced with is unreliable. The DPA will make electricity grid operators buy coal-fired power, whether they want to or not. A move that is an unprecedented intervention in securing U.S. energy markets.
Let's bring back the use of coal. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQRQ7S92_lo&authuser=0
Coal mining jobs are at the highest level since 1970 . Trump has brought $80,000 jobs to coal country . Trump is our savior ! USA USA USA
Econ 101- Supply and Demand . If you have the supply but no demand it still adds up to no jobs. You still need a buyer for that coal. Where is that going to happen? Not most US power plants as they've gone to natural gas. Not China as their economy is slowing down especially with those pesky Trump tariffs which slows it down more. You Kentuckians were foolish enough to buy into first McConnells promises of coal jobs and then two years later with Trump uttering the same. What's that saying "Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me" . You all are simply reaping what you sow now
Lol 4 months after this vid, and still nothing, Robert lied on this interview
Only dumbass Conservatives would think a CEO of a mining company is more credible than climate scientists and Democratic policy makers. You people are the fucking problem in this country. I hope you lose bigly next election.
More jobs for almost no coal.
Heartwarming. Thanks to the sane leadership of President Trump.
Thank God for President Trump #MAGA
Mr. Nutterbutter told him to say all this BS.
Bob: "Certain areas..."
more black lung for coal miners
