miner, I am for clean coal and trying to stop or at least slow down global warming. The dirty coal burning in China is polluting California right now. You might look at the co. you worked for before you start looking at the government to blame. I'm for miners but I like what we call, normal weather. There is no doubt that the polar ice cap is melting and the effect that will have on this earth is catastrophic. That melting might be the natural order of things, man made, or both. Clean coal buring and lower auto emission, has got to be of a benefit to people. I think the big trucks should be made to run on natural gas. Hope you find work soon.

The EPA is not killing jobs. The coal companies waiting on a government handout is killing jobs, automation in the coal mines is killing jobs, cheaper coal in other states is killing jobs, natural gas production is killing coal jobs, shale oil exploration is killing coal jobs,.....

Leaves no doubt concerning where he stands on coal.

The real reason why there is such a push to outlaw coal is because it competes with other forms of more expensive energy!

Any of you smug Tri-Cities (and Abingdon, Emory, etc.) residents who don't believe that yesterday's devastating news from Alpha Natural Resources will not or does not affect you or your life style had better think again. You are part of this picture and need to wake up and reevaluate your uneducated, uninformed attitudes with regard to this topic.

Coal supports this entire region, either directly or indirectly.(Those of you who have benefitted greatly by the $$$ donations to your causes, charities, campaigns, etc. will notice if for no other reason, sadly.)

Mining, while evidently "looked down upon" by many of you, has come a long way in past years. No, it is not yet perfected, but changes in technology and science have gradually enhanced and improved many areas. The Supreme Court recently ruled that the EPA had over-extended its authority with regard to this industry, but today it's difficult to care about the over-reaching EPA regulations when we are worried about supporting our families! People are out of work, and folks, we too, along with our families, friends and neighbors, are subject to starvation!

I too am concerned about global warming, but get real - coal does not deserve all the blame. If you are opposed to living in an area that is so close to coal operations, then I suggest you already have a remedy at your disposal:- it's called RELOCATION! Just move! Go someplace else and find something new and original to complain about! At least for the moment we are still a democracy, a free country offering a system of free enterprise to those who are willing to work toward achieving their goals, but hurry!!!....it might not last long!!! Let each of us examine our priorities, face reality and think carefully before adding ignorant nonsense to these sites.

Is it possible they are closing the mines this close to the election just to make a political statement? What has JUST changed that caused the layoffs to happen NOW?

I just love some people that will call folks stupid without checking what they say. Info here Dud. The EPA was formed in 1970 under Nixon. I guess that would make anyone that voted republican stupid then wouldn't it. Falconwave it is so true that coal does not deserve all the blame, but it must take its share, car emission's must take it's share, and many more things, caused by man,that cause global warming. There must be movement across the board to curb global warming, or we are going to be in big time trouble. There are so many natural things that add to global warming that is out of man's control. The only thing we can do is hope mother earth will take care of that.

Media General (or whoever owns the newspaper in Bristol) should conduct a minimum competency test before allowing anyone to post sheer, unreadable garbage on these sites. It makes the topic a waste of time and effort.

Power generation from coal is falling quickly. According to new figures from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, coal made up 36 percent of U.S. electricity in the first quarter of 2012 down from 44.6 percent in the first quarter of 2011.

That stunning drop, which represented almost a 20 percent decline in coal generation over the last year, was primarily due to low natural gas prices. As EIA explains, natural gas generation will climb steadily this year, while coal will see a double-digit drop by the end of 2012.
