More coal plants shut down in Trump’s first two years than in Obama’s entire first term

Recommended Posts

Has nothing to do with politics. Most coal plants are 30+ years old and are run down. Theres also an abudance natural gas. Theyll probably be building a bunch of natural gas power plants soon.

Coal was a campaign issue for the retards.  

Coal business did shoot up right after Trump got elected but after awhile theres just no market. Nothing you can do about it, too much natural gas.

So? Trump has not gone out of his way to attack coal like Clinton and Obama they are losing out to competition which is the way it should be.

And Now, the Really Big Coal Plants Begin to Close

 

Old, small plants were the early retirees, but several of the biggest U.S. coal burners—and CO2emitters-will be shuttered by year’s end

No shit! That’s why it’s downright sleazy to pander to votes by telling poor miners and poor communities lies. Idiots deserve the aftermath that comes from believing in Trump.

So, you prefer lying to coal country and saying you will bring their jobs back instead of telling them the world is changing, coal is dying and we need to start trying to retrain miners?

 

That damn Kenyan attacking coal miners by:

"As part of the 2016 budget, the Obama White House created something called the POWER Plus plan specifically to help Appalachian communities that were getting left behind because of the rapidly changing energy market. The acronym stands for Partnerships for Opportunity and Workforce and Economic Revitalization, and it proposed a suite of projects including to convert $1 billion from the Abandoned Mine Lands reserve—a pot of money that had been growing since the Carter administration—funding for projects to clean up abandoned mine lands, mostly underground, that are linked to local economic development strategies. For Kentucky alone, that would mean $20 million a year for five years. The money would likely have gone to promote other businesses sectors like manufacturing and tourism and to retrain miners for new jobs like writing computer code. "

No, Trump went out of his way to lie to these ppl about how coal was making a come back. Everyone with half a brain knew coal was dead. It’s been dying for years. But trump lies to people with no hope, and they latch on. And you don’t see a problem with that because you’re too busy with his tiny dick in your mouth.
