Obama is winning the war on coal.
#1
Besides my company closing two large coal plants, and a coal mine, here's a tidbit out of a company newsletter that went out today;

"In September, proposed federal regulations were announced that would limit greenhouse gas emissions for new coal plants to 1,100 pounds of CO2 per megawatt-hour (MWH) – about 700 fewer pounds than most modern-day coal units emit. According to the U.S. EPA, future coal-fired plants would require carbon capture and storage.


“I believe this regulation will result in virtually no new coal plants
being built in the foreseeable future, as current technology is unproven at
utility scale and uneconomical,” said Don Moul, vice president, Commodity
Operations."


So I guess he's winning his war.

I was told last year that there were only two active coal mines left in PA. Any truth to this? Coal makes great heat, burns cleaner than wood and burns much longer while around the same price range as a comparable amount of firewood. I LOVE coal and it'll be a sad f*ing day when coal is no moreSad

ADD THIS IN ALSO. End of an Era: Last U.S. Lead Smelter to Close in December

Posted on October 25, 2013
In December, the final primary lead smelter in the United States will close. The lead smelter, located in Herculaneum, Missouri, and owned and operated by the Doe Run Company, has existed in the same location since 1892.

The Herculaneum smelter is currently the only smelter in the United States which can produce lead bullion from raw lead ore that is mined nearby in Missouri's extensive lead deposits, giving the smelter its "primary" designation. The lead bullion produced in Herculaneum is then sold to lead product producers, including ammunition manufactures for use in conventional ammunition components such as projectiles, projectile cores, and primers. Several "secondary" smelters, where lead is recycled from products such as lead acid batteries or spent ammunition components, still operate in the United States. http://www.nraila.org/news-issues/articl...ember.aspx

Yea I figured as much. DEP lists 12 underground mines and 64 surface mines as still active in Pennsylvania as of 2012 on their website.

I wonder how much of the coal production goes to big contracts in PA though and not to the regular consumer market.

Rolling blackouts are required in a communist country to make the peasants greatful for what their dear leader provides. In some areas of some countries the power goes off after a certain time.
