It's not Obama. The weather is to blame clean coal has been going on for over ten years. Do you really think they are just going to stop burning coal and say sorry no more electrcity? People still need coal and power the past 2 mild winters is why there is a decrease in coal. Really if they could make more power with less coal they would already have done it and not lowered your bill. Quit buying into propaganda it is unfortunate but that's just how the railroad has operated for years. Coal will pick back k up in time.

The power companies converting to gas from coal caused this.
Clean coal is a farce due to the scrubbed expense.
