About: White House aims to keep coal power plant
What happen with coal power now where is trump???
Power generation with abundant and cheap natural gas is giving coal a run for it’s money. Good for market competition.
China is kicking USA's arse on every front now that Trump is showing how schizo and flakey America's foreign policy is. America is focussing on 19th century coal when China is focussing on 21st century modern energy.
I will still use my coal stove or wood it's free on your land and no bill.😁👍
Trump has increased national debt by 2 trillion by taking away taxes from the rich.
Idustrial solar and wind are not green or clean and nor reliable or cheap. a big lie and scam is what they are
But Coal isn’t economically viable. It just isn’t.
Coal is everything to us. Without coal, our factories will become idle, our foundries and workshops be still as the grave; the locomotive will rust in the shed, and the rail be buried in the weeds. Our streets will be dark, our houses uninhabitable. Our rivers will forget the paddlewheel, and we shall again be separated by days from France, by months for the United States. The post will lengthen its periods and protract its dates. A thousand special arts and manufacturers, one by one, then in a crowd, will fly the empty soil, as boon companies are said to disappear when the cask is dry. We shall miss our grand dependence, as a man misses his companion, his fortune, or a limb, every hour and at every turn reminded of the irreparable loss. Wise England will then be the silly virgin without the [coal] oil in her lamp.

US coal production decreased in 2016 because Obama was strangeling the coal industry. And the idiot "professor" has zero understanding of what she's talking about when she says that coal isn't competitive with solar (what a moron). Obama's EPA jacked up the emissions standards on coal fired power plants with onerous regulations that would have cost $100 million to implement. Any idiot who says that solar is cheaper than coal is an absolute moron.
While Trump subsidizes the dinosaur extraction industry. Like dementia grandpa.
Lol, Solar & Wind is cheap.
Better hide this news story from all the Coal Miners whom Trump promised a job to lol. West Virginia FYI Fossil Fuel Use is going extinct so get off Welfare and move to places with Jobs or maybe Donald will help you with Education or Job training lol. Solar and Wind to name a few are winning and so is clean air! What's the Middle East and Russia gonna do with their number export Fossil Fuel? Our Green Earth is not Trump's RED Planet.
Energy companies switching to cheaper + cleaner?? (.35 mark) Nothing is cheaper than coal. Where'd you get your information?
Why are you perpetuating this lie, that solar and wind are cheaper? You take the subsidies away and remove all of the oppressive regulation and taxation on coal and the price of electricity can be produced for less the 5 cents a megawatt. Without coal as the base load power, expect rolling blackouts, no electricity at night, poor quality supply and a huge jump in costs. Coal is king when it comes to producing affordable and reliable power to supply industry and the masses.
Newer Energy sources will systematically replace current energy sources, as "technology" improves the newer sources. Still need coal now but eventually maybe not. Perhaps raw coal can some how be reprocessed into clean liquid fuel?
Good luck with the 1950s style power bleeding your wallets dry
Meanwhile, solar and rechargable batteries keep getting better and cheaper
Coal has no future trumptards! You wanna protect typewriter manufacturing jobs as well?
Coal is a dead industry. Even the Republicans in Congress and the Senate have said if Trump tries to use the fake "National Security" excuse to force the issue of coal over other sources to generate power they would take action.
