Let's use another data set to indicate why the war on coal is such a fallacy since, Mr. Editor, you only offered a veiled reason; Natural Gas is stomping coal in steam electric power generation.

The price of coal has dropped from a high of around $140 per short ton in 2008 to around $75 today. So, a bunch of players entered the market during that time, overloaded it with product, are now getting beat by another power source, and the MARKET is correcting this overabundance of resources.

If you think otherwise, post ONE regulation this administration created SOLELY on its own next time in making the Obama is anti-coal argument. Usually, creation of MACT rules are the reason given. But, let us be reminded that many previous administrations began the work on those EPA regs. This admin has just finalized them and is putting them in place.

Let's hear What and FedUp start whining when they have to pay THOSE kind of utility bills. And they will.
