My point is that with over 100 addional power plants switching from coal to natural gas and other types of fuels the reality is that the demand for coal is going to decline in 2014 and 2015. These are facts. The best thing for most of these miners to do is to stop living in the past, except what is going to happen, and find new careers. I'am trying to keep you good people. Everything I'am stating is true and a matter of public record. And what are the miners going to do when companies like Alpha Natural Resources and James River Coal, to name only a few, are forced into bankruptcy?

Sad but true. People need to look at what Patriot Coal is doing to the UMWA. This is what the future holds for all coal miners. Coal copanies big and small are tring to revert to the way it was befor Matewan. Look it up on Google. The really sad thing is that the government is going to help.

The whole coal situation is sad for everyone in Central Appalachia.

If you havent read on the internet they have been searching ways to make coal burn more clean they have spent millions of dollars to figure it out. And they have finally figured out a way.. look it up!

As a matter of fact, according to recent proven scientific evidence, Natural Gas emits more ozone-depleting molecules than the CO2 emissions than coal.

The same stunt was used on the old R-12 Freon years ago. Freon contained methane molecules which was harmful to the ozone. Natural gas is nothing more than Methane gas, with the physical harmful toxins taken out, and odor induced into it.

Guess who started the uproar over Freon? Dupont. However, Dupont held the exclusive patent on Freon at the time for 20 years, and at about the 18 year mark started the uproar over it. Why? Because they had just developed R-134a and had a 20-year patent on it now. That kept any competition non-existant.

Out of all the energy (BTU's) underneath the United States, 97% is coal, 2% is Natural Gas, and 1% is oil. Would you rather sell that 2% over a period of 10 years, or 100 years if you owned it?

Methane emits TEN TIMES the amount of harmful molecules to the ozone.

Why do you think that the largest contributors to Clean Air groups are Natural Gas companies? Hmmm...

Your post is not true. In fact it is laughable. Do more research. Coal is a dying fuel. If you really want to know the truth research how many U.S. utilities will switch from burning coal to natural gas and biofuels now until 2020. It's in the 100's.

That's a different Daniel Bunn that died Jan.3. The one that died was a missionary in Bolivia...not an heir to the Bunn empire. Check it out. You should know there would be more than one Daniel Bunn in the world.

Next time you all decide to piss in everyone else's Cheerios, the very least you should do is check your facts out, idiots. If you don't, someone else (like me) will.

I started this discussion and as I stated on my first post I strongly thought this was a hoax. It looks like I am right. I feel so sorry for all the men and women who believed Mr. Eddie Joe Estep. He should be arrested and put in jail for what he has done!
