Coal is a cheap, reliable, plentiful fuel source.Everybody got that? Our only choice is to stay addicted to coal while we dump billions of dollars into a hope that someday, coal can be used to produce energy without polluting our air and warming our planet. The op-ed is so terrified of clean power sources like solar and wind, getting cheaper by the day, that it dare not even speak their names.
Coal needs massive taxpayer subsidies to survive.
Time for some Reality.
