About: The Collapse of Coal

over $100k last year to $0 ,,,,,, how do you get a job that's going to pay that much again .its not going to happen ,,
I remember during the last election Mr. B Sanders was saying that coal is a sun setting industry and he was going to introduce green energy production plants in these coal mining areas. Why didn't they take up that offer?
Use to heat your house cheap very high BTU
Coal is as dead as 100000 miners
I wish them all well. Maybe the solar boom can help.
I’m all for clean air. However, I’m more for jobs and people being able to eat and support themselves. Instead of shutting coal down completely why not invest more into clean coal technology. The technology is there for it. Put money into that instead of doing away with coal and jobs. When coal jobs are lost a whole lot more jobs than just coal are affected as well.
England stopped mining in the eighties cos we use North Sea gas what planet u on our last deep coal mine closed in 2015 we still have open cast but now the gas starting to run out so we screwed lol there is clean ways to burn coal
Dilute and intermittent sources of energy will never ever be cheaper than reliable and energy dense forms of energy. That's why wind and solar will remain jokes forever. Go nuclear, natural gas, geothermal, and hydropower. Replace the Homer City Generating Station with two 1,100 Mwe nuclear reactors.

Trump is bringing coal back page 14f:
Germany's hard coal production also followed the bell curve shape such as in UK. The reserves collapse in 2004 came from the fact, that the proven ressources could only mine with heavy subsidies compared to alternatives and in 2004 the decision was made to phase out the subsidy scheme. This year, the last piece of hard coal was mined in DE. There is still a lot of coal in the former coal areas, but it is so deep that the mining became uneconomical.
It’s amazing coal made it this far, honestly.
I was fascinated to learn that us Brits have been living on top of untapped Coleslaw mines,

The reason for this is government shut down of the use of coal before it was nothing but economy and War that affected it

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


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.
