Environmentalists like Arnold Schwarzeneger and Barack Obama have for many years blocked coal mines from opening with their environmental regulations. These regulations are done away with under Trump. Personally, I like coal. Coal is a mineral. It is there for people to use. Some people complain about the minute traces of sulfur and mercury. Well, sulfur and mercury occur in nature, not just in coal. There is a good old Chinese saying. There cannot be fish in water too clean. Humans don't live in a germ free environment. Sometimes, you need a bit of so called impurities in order to boost the immune system. And that's why I think coal is good for health.

I'm so sick of hearing how bad coal is. It still powers most of the USA and brings good paying jobs to the areas.

And there's really no such thing is clean coal anyway.. that's just a term for the technology behind trying to capture the bad emissions and store it, or do something else with it to sequester it. they've managed to clean up the bad emissions considerably, but our time and energy best served ramping up our truly clean and renewable infrastructure for the long haul. If money were invested in that sector more than it is now, that would also create jobs. Someone would need to be hired to build out that infrastructure.

I'm glad they're opening up coal again. hopefully the people of West Virginia will be able to feed themselves again.
