We can't keep land-filling waste and digging up mountains for coal. We don't have oil indefinitely. Coal emissions do poison streams and animals with heavy metals (mercury, etc) in addition to CO2.

Koz it is less than 1% of the states production
look at the Reserves and Supply tab under Net Electricity Generation. It is only 32K MWh out of a total of 10,509 K MWh that is 0.3%. Of all the petroleum fired plants in the US it represents 1.7% of that total.
