About: Why Coal Is "Retiring" Faster Than Anyone Thought
No! Coal is not being replaced by solar, wind or even geothermal! Coal is being replaced by natural gas! Solar and wind can not provide 24/7 electricity. In order to reduce even more coal burning we need more gas pipelines.
So coal miners who you voting for in November???
You were sold a dream....
Just like the wall wishers, and the people who thought you thought it would become a crime to speak Spanish and Arabic in public.
I know your loosing job's soon, and that's not funny.
But these guys should have set up transition employment
Countries do it everyday...
I'm sorry but you voted for the lie....there is a price Cemarian.
yeah! let's keep a fuel that's 400 years old and there's more efficient options! YEEEHHAAAA
If Trump retards the switch to clean cheap energy, that will help other countries compete against the USA. I thought his policy was to put America first.
40% of Americans think the earth is 6,000 years old.
Does that explain anything?
Fake news it's coming back now that obummers gone
Indiana having its lay offs and now this.
This loss of solar energy jobs was larger than ALL of the miners in the country. So, the President has cost more jobs than he could possibly create with this anti-solar tariff.
If you mine enough, and give these companies enough money and tax breaks coal will end up growing, and making money in no time. Simple supply side economic theory, if you make the supply the demand will come shortly after. Every Trump voter knows this.
I know its funny to TYT but there are many many third world countries that totally depend on coal and will be harmed by no coal.
I can see the Trump administration talking of needing coal for our national energy infrastructural seeing the govt give all kinds of money to coal producers to keep mining it.
We used to have coal trains through here several times a day. I haven't seen one for over a year. There are wind farms everywhere and I'm seeing more solar roofs, not just panels. The coal plant was being created a decade ago so it was relatively new.
I have solar panels, once I get my two wind turbines up and running in combiation with them I will have power for all my home needs. Payback for costs within three to four years . Maybe sooner if I sell surplus power.
Deal or what 😉
Trump really thought clean coal was coal that was washed . 🤣
He really thought that the shit was washed out of it before it was burned .🤣
He is the type of thick shit that when he hears of solid fuel boosters on a rocket... he stays up all night thinking about how they get all that coal in them boosters. 🤣
Too little, too late..... Damage already done to Mother Earth's lungs.
Ya the government investing millions into Solyndra went so well for Obama huh? Solar, wind, nuclear fission, and nuclear fusion, as well as dams are the future not coal, but it has to happen in a free market not with help from the government. And Trumps solar panel tariffs stop China from unloading solar panels made by slave labor into America. It will HELP not hurt American solar panel makers!
nuclear is cleaner than solar & wind.
Go Science, GO!!
I know everyone hates Hillary but she proposed retraining coal miners in other fields. Coal miners rejected that proposal and said that they didn’t want government hand outs. By 2020 more West Virginians May need food stamps because they have lost their coal jobs, despite Trumps promises. They’ll probably still vote for Trump again though. Sigh
