Junk food is public enemy number 1 ... large fructose filled drinks & fast food kill a million times more people than coal fired power plants ... if McDonald's can help keep public & media attention on "climate change" it takes pressure off the nations number health problem & their poverty level low employee wages.
Tell that to the people who will be losing their lives fighting against ISIS. A fight that could be totally avoided if the US used more coal and got off foreign oil totally.
In my opinion, this country is now finding out just what "no prior experience" means for POTUS..The appointed heads of these various agencies are proving to be disasters,and I think the Nov. elections will reflect a huge upswing in GOP support. Traditional energy sources have been kicked to the curb by Washington over the last 6 years,and they should begin to see some support from the Hill soon after Nov...Just my opinion,GLTA..HOG
Run, put them all on ignore. If they get no reactions, the head solar pimp will quit paying them and they will die on the vine like chicom solar.
Always take your financial advice from a brokerage house that had to take a bailout from us taxpayers to keep from going broke. ACI's debt is PEANUTS compared to what MS had/has-- even after the bailout. A downgrade from these cruks is a positive sign that the bottom is near.
very good You wont get any response from the looser liberal greenies about this because its too much factual info that drives them nuts .Oh you may get coal is dead to a liberal its like saying NANNY NANNY NANNY GOAT
It no wonder you dumb bagholders lose your money. The speculation and reasoning I see on coal message boards is the most idiotic and most amusing. Thank you for entertaining me week after week.
An idiot with some left wing environmental action group went on TV said he wants all coal use to end. Liberals really are stupid. The more wind mills you build the more Bald Eagles that will be killed. Solar only supplies a fraction of what America needs. These same weirdo's don't want clean dependable Nuclear. Oil is as bad as coal. There aren't enough rivers to use hydro. When America suffers massive blackouts from a lack of generation how will these idiots power up their smart phones and I Pads ?
Perhaps more upsetting than preferential tax treatment for SpaceX ("Elon Musk's Sacramento Pay Pals," Review & Outlook, April 21) are state net-metering policies that subsidize Mr. Musk's SolarCity and other rooftop solar leasing companies. Because of the way the net-metering rate structure is set up, it is essentially a massive subsidy for solar-panel owners, usually high-income homeowners. This massive subsidy is resulting in increased electricity costs for fixed-income individuals and working-class families.
In states like California, customers subsidized by net metering are avoiding paying for the costs to maintain the electric grid, which is essential to all communities. Those costs are shifted to customers who cannot afford to lease a system from Mr. Musk's SolarCity, including low-income and minority households, ultimately resulting in higher electricity bills for those who can least afford it.
Naturally, Mr. Musk and other millionaire owners of rooftop solar companies continue to push for overly generous net-metering policies to add to their bottom line at the expense of low-income communities.
The fact of the matter is that unfair government policies that benefit the 1%, and in this case take from those less fortunate, must be reformed.

Is that the same Bank of America whose stock was trading at $2.77 back in March '09? They should spend more time studying their own industry and less time prognosticating others.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
43% of electricity in this country is still generated by coal. 70% of world steel production depends on coal feedstock. Clean coal Technology has reduced nitrogen oxide emissions. For those who are celebrating the demise of JRCC get a clue. Many Americans lost their jobs and their ability to provide for their families. Where are the "shovel ready" green jobs the idiot in charge promised? The POTUS failed energy policy has not been very successful in creating jobs through green technology.
I for one have given up on this board. It is inhabited mostly by chicom solar pimp trolls. Bet it becomes something like Ferguson, MO here soon (or is already). No intelligent discussion, negative posters hold no long or short position in the stock, it is just a pit of stupidity.
This week ACI has lost two lawsuits . One about a mountain top removal and now West Elk expansion. If they can stop West Elk what is to say they can`t stop future mining in the PRB? The judge said global warming was not looked at when permits were given. Ben does not like this one bit. It goes against the American system of doing business. Who will pay ACI back for all their time and money spent? Not the Obama White house . Vote democrats out in Nov. That means democrat judges also.
Let ANR, BTU, ACI meet and decide on a highly profitable price to sell coal to utilities
I know, the Civil Rights Dept for Strong Arm Goons Dept , aka Justice Dept, will be unhappy and might sick EPa on Coals to kill them, oh wait, hasn't that already been done ???
