The Coal Industry Needs Everyone to Stand Together Now, Says Reid
December 23, 2019 - “The coal industry needs you now if what’s left of the US coal industry is to be saved,” said Bill Reid, Managing Editor of CoalZoom. “Obama’s EPA CO2 endangerment finding must be overturned and we need your help to fund our efforts to make this happen.”
Next year, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), coal production will fall to 601 million tons reflecting continued idling and closing of mines. Moody’s expects that within 10 years production will fall to about 300 million tons as coal power plants are closed in the name of reducing CO2 levels.
CoalZoom has teamed up with respected industry leader, Fred Palmer, and internationally renowned scientist, Dr. Craig Idso, in the campaign “Saving US Coal” with the single goal of overturning the CO2 endangerment finding. “It is now crystal clear that the quick overturning of the CO2 endangerment finding is the only way the American coal industry can be saved from total destruction,” said Reid.
The CoalZoom campaign was launched in November and already four videos have been released. The legal filing is now planned for January. The progress with “Saving US Coal” and the videos can be seen here.
“We can either do nothing or we can stand and fight for our industry that has made America great,” said Reid. “I ask you to stand up with us and join the fight by making a donation to “Saving US Coal”. A form can be found here. Thank you!”
