About: Coal Miner to Trump: “Coal Mining Isn’t Coming Back” | NYT - Opinion
same in uk we went through the same in 80s with m thatcher she closed most pits now there is no deep coal mines left it tore our hearts out the small mining towns and we still going through loads of crap to this day so i think yous should watch out for what you wish for
Mining isnt coming back. We should focus on solar panels and wind turbines. Those are renewable resources. They are more than a Quintilian tonnes of race earth at the bottom of ocean to be extracted (NOT MINED) to make us CARBON NEUTRAL!
I'm waiting for the Betamax come back ! Have alot of tapes that trump will make valuable again ! Count on it !
If he sad this on Faux news they would make fun of him for a week.
As a resident of southwest Virginia I see firsthand that the coal industry is not in fact coming back. There were a few jobs reopened for a brief time after trump was elected but nothing like the boom that happened in the 90s and before. Coal is a dead industry. Period.
Most of the intelligent world agrees.
now they see trump is a liar,he says whatever will get him what he wants.his only care is about his bank accounts, golf courses,and a wall that is bankrupting all of America. the coal miners and their familys deserve more than they will ever receive,just as our military is getting shafted,so are those going into the mines,risking death with every trip.
really clean clean, super clean sparkling clean, really clean , really really really clean coal
Don’t Worry America......The Military Is Always Hiring...
More Evidence Trump Supporters Are Dumb As F....
The rich got their tax cuts, the deficit exploded, a war in the middle east is coming. The actual Republican agenda has been successful. The moronic voters that made it possible will get nothing. Their votes are all that matter to the GOP. They'll serve up some hate for the next few years to keep the imbeciles in line and voting against their own interests.
Andrew Yang has solutions to these problems. Google Andrew Yang. #yang2020
I live in an oil/natural gas state. It’s been good four our state, but I fear a similar trend will happen in the coming decades if we don’t diversify our economy. Now would be a good time to start investing in other forms of energy and offering oil/natural gas workers training in renewable energy.
Time will tell
coal is not coming back for the same reason we don't use VHS cassettes anymore - there are better and cheaper alternatives. why are people who blindly worship free market so surprised when the innovation comes for their jobs?!
he told us in detroit & flint GM plants would be coming back , did'nt buy it ,we knew better
All people for coal dont want to go to school and get a real job or work at a job that uses your brain.
Coal is like a zombie dead it just doesn’t know it yet.
Coal is not a partisan issue. It’s not about the left or right. Unfortunately most of the jobs lost are NEVER coming back. The coal executives are benefiting because of automation which has permanently replaced the workers who previously held these jobs. And in West Virginia and Kentucky because of past work related injuries, high unemployment and depression the Opioid crisis is at an all time high - killing people by the thousands. This is the truth that Congress has not addressed.
Looks like all of the libs were wrong. Coal production is roaring.
