October 25, 2021 - What a wonderful and uplifting meeting it was! The 2021 PCMIA/SME Pittsburgh Section Annual Joint Meeting, which drew nearly 200 was held last week, October 21-22, at its traditional home, the Hilton Garden Inn – Southpointe, Canonsburg, PA. This was the first face-to-face meeting since 2019 and everyone was pleased to see their friends once again!
One of the highlights of the meeting, which drew great interest from all attendees, was a presentation “Net-Negative CO2 Baseload Coal Power Technology” given by Bill Reid, Managing Editor, CoalZoom.com. The PowerPoint presentation, presented at the meeting explained the technology as well as the Act H.R. 4891, and can be found here.
“Stand up and fight for coal!“ Reid urged PCMIA and SME members who were present. “Coal remains a vital industry for the Nation and we must not be ashamed of it but instead fight for our industry; fight for our coal miners who have done so much for America; and fight for our own jobs and for the future of PCMIA and SME.”
Reid explained that an article had been posted on CoalZoom homepage (click here) to enable PCMIA and SME Pittsburgh Section members to make a difference by supporting the effort in getting H.R.4891 introduced in the Senate. A bi-partisan contact list of twelve Senators is included with a sample email that can be used to model an individual email message.
“Reach out to members of Congress and promote net-negative in every venue where you have the opportunity,” appealed Reid. ”A Net-Negative CO2 Baseload Coal Power Program MUST be part of any infrastructure legislation that incentivizes other low-carbon infrastructure such as renewables. All low-carbon electricity generation options are needed,” said Reid.
