Yup, coals time is certainly limited, but we should use this cheap energy source while we can and in the meantime maybe they will actually come up with reasonable alternatives. I dont think they care if we all are jobless in the dark as long as they push their agenda.

coal is a very powerful fuel, a lump of coal puts out some serious heat and it lasts a long time.

Maybe west Virginia should have reinvented itself and prepared for the future. Maybe a bigger focus should have been on improving education and training that prepares for modern industry and technology careers. Instead generation after generation was sent underground in disgusting conditions thinking the resource would always remain or a better form of energy couldn't be used. Now the mountains are destroyed, stripped, blown up, and poisoned. The once beautiful land can't even be used to promote tourism as much as it could have. Pittsburgh survived the closing of steel mills by educating and preparing for the future and a changing world. It not only survived but is thriving.

Since you don't mind chemicals I guess the bill that was passed to allow unlimited radioactive fracking waste to be dumped in West Virginia doesn't bother you either. What could go wrong? Other states fought against it (you know silly things like illness, contaminated water and dying livestock) so you get the waste from other states too. How exciting!!! Go freedom!!!

We once used whale oil to light lanterns, should we continue that energy source? I mean whalers lost jobs who cares if a better source was discovered.

Or maybe we should conserve fossil fuels so they last us as long as it takes to fully develop the renewable sources, so there is a gradual transition instead of a sudden emergency with much hardship and shortages.

KIEV/BALACLAVA, Ukraine (Reuters)- Ukraine mobilized for war on Sunday and Washington threatened to isolate Russia economically, after President Vladimir Putin declared he had the right to invade his neighbor in Moscow's biggest confrontation with the West since the Cold War.

"This is not a threat: this is actually the declaration of war to my country," Ukraine's Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk said in English. Yatsenuik heads a pro-Western government that took power when the country's Russia-backed president, Viktor Yanukovich, was ousted last week.

Putin secured permission from his parliament on Saturday to use military force to protect Russian citizens in Ukraine and told U.S. President Barack Obama he had the right to defend Russian interests and nationals, spurning Western pleas not to intervene.

Oil lamps are rarely used anymore because we found economically reasonable alternatives, not because we based our energy policies on some green freak protesting whales or based on a flawed "theories" that predicted the end of the world if we continue to use them. The economy of states was not destroyed in the process. They werent regulated away, we found something better and cheaper. As of now there are no real reasonable alternatives to coal and the WV economy is dependent on coal. Lame comparison.

There are better and cleaner energy sources now. The freaks that want regulations warned of the consequences that lack of regulation will cause. Now we are seeing the results with the chemical spills that have been occurring. West Virginia should have created opportunities and not have depended on one industry to take of them forever.

Republicans are held accountable for their racist comments. When is the left going to hold democrats accountable for their racist comments?

Cleaner yes, better? Not yet. Coal is still the cheapest form of energy we can produce and supplies millions of jobs. Nuclear is a pretty good alternative but your kind of people dont want those either. In your fantasy land you pretend like Res said we can power the country of elk farts, but we NEED coal unless you want blackouts, quadrupled power bills, and a stagnating economy.

Yes farts so clever. I guess that was meant to make liberals look stupid and not the one saying it. Ok lets say solar, wind and natural gas doesn't exist. What will be different in less than 20 years after the resources are gone? Nobody prepared before now knowing it wouldn't last forever. More than likely there will still be no backup plan.
