Trump's mission to save coal is failing
President Donald Trump's mission to revive America's coal industry is failing.
US power plants are expected to consume less coal next year than at any point since President Jimmy Carter was in office, according to government forecasts released on Tuesday.
Although Trump has tried to boost coal by slashing environmental regulations and installing a former coal lobbyist to lead the EPA, coal keeps losing ground to cleaner and cheaper alternatives. Power companies are rapidly retiring coal-fired power plants and replacing them with dirt-cheap natural gas and
increasingly affordable renewable energy.

Looks like another failed promise from Trump. Oh well.

he was just pandering to the opiate belt when he promised to bring it back anyway

I mean don't get me wrong, he's stupid and actually used the term "beautiful clean coal" but he was pandering.

Americans losing jobs is something they like. Strange isn't it? Strangely un-American.
Wake up! Good for the environment, good for jobs!
