Three things that are needed in southeastern Kentucky 1 infrastructure. To help the development of the area there needs to be an interstate highway into the Appalachian area. 2 The government, both state and federal need to offer incentives for companies to come to the area. They did it for Toyoda why not wind energy or solar? There's plenty of money in the lottery and grants. 3 Train the people in the area for the industries you want. So many people from Appalachia Have left and worked in Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Detroit. they are a very mechanical and learn fast.

Folks last call to learn new skills and leave the coal industry before it collapses. Miners have been gone deaf to 25 years of similar messages, while retraining community classes have been easily available. Save your health, get out
Had these coal miners had the sense or the inclination to look at other countries they would have seen coal mining was coming to an end.  Kellingley Colliery was the last deep coal mine in operation in the UK and its last coaling shift was on 18 December 2015 when coaling operations ceased with the loss of 450 jobs bringing deep coal mining in the UK completely to an end.  Coal has been mined in the UK since the early 17th century and by 1740 brick lined shafts to 150 foot depth were common.
