    Cheap natural gas and the fact that clean coal is horribly expensive is what is leading to a decline in the mining of coal. But the GOP will grab at any straw at present.

    As with the logging industry, coal miners are going to have to learn to live with the fact that their jobs are going to disappear due to lack of demand and mechanization. Plus the fact that people are sick of the pollution that the industry creates. And the alternatives are already starting to compete with dirty coal in price in some areas, and are far cheaper the 'clean coal'.

    There's no lack of demand. When our lumber industry shut down, we started buying lumber from Japan. And there is definitely a demand for coal.

    The lack of demand is for green energy, that's why enviro wackos like you and the dems support cap and trade. You need oil and coal to be artificially priced sky high for green energy to have any chance to compete........

    Some times we are thinking wrong . and its like our child hood .
    When you were doing any wrong then your parents were against that attitude .
    But at that time you thought that they are bad . But they are not really . :)

    Fox's Megyn Kelly recently hosted a lengthy segment on the coal industry featuring a Mitt Romney campaign ad and the CEOs of a coal trade group and a coal mining company. The industry representatives claimed that President Obama is waging a "war on coal," but the facts about the Obama administration's efforts to enact long overdue clean air regulations were noticeably absent.

    On Fox News' America Live, host Megyn Kelly interviewed American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity CEO Mike Duncan and Murray Energy Corporation CEO Robert Murray. After Kelly aired a campaign ad featuring Romney speaking at the Century Mine, Murray belabored the "human issue" of regulations and the plight of coal miners who "just want to work in honor and dignity." But Kelly didn't mention that Murray, who owns the mine, recently came under fire for forcing miners to attend the rally without pay, or that his company has a history of labor and safety violations.
