All of it except coal...and nat gas as the EPA is trying to shut down fracking.
Probably right. Mostly white people there.
I see that Alpha Natural Resources is laying off 1,200 people. Demand for coal is down, partly due to EPA regs and the use of natural gas (can you say fracking?).
“RICHMOND Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling issued the following statement today regarding the news that Alpha Natural Resources will lay off 1,200 employees and close eight mines in Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.”
Alpha wants to develop overseas markets for “thermal coal”, which means it will be exported and burned somewhere on this planet.
It's another sign of class warfare: the elitist, well-to-do government administrators at war with the less privileged under class.

In ‘08 I believe that Idiot Joe Biden openly stated that they were going to wage war on coal, but apparently it fell on deaf ears because Pennsylvania and Ohio went for the kenyan and his puppet. Do you think they believe it now?
Ha! wind and solar probably can't replace more than about 10% of what's produced by coal.
