It is heavily shorted by sierra club and some other environmentalists. They were more interested in shorting coal and other companies in this coal sector. Now that Jackson is gone we are seeing reversal. Also many senators and congressmen negotiated some deal about coal sector to liberalize some regulations. All in all it looks positive given the fact that coal inentories are at lowest level and demand and prices are increasing.
Coal is a national treasure of this country and it is time we gave thanks for what it has done for this country. Were we not told in the 60`s that black was beautiful. Why is it that black coal in 2012 is bad? It is time to put the sierra club and other terrorist environmentalists in jail or let them go to China where they will be hung. Why hung? Because in China you don`t stand in the way of progress. If there is a problem you let science figure out how to fix it.
One day soon we will see the skies in China change because of the use of clean coal and instead of our leaders showing ignorance every time they speak about coal they should be saying what if .
You don`t take your countries greatest energy source and declare war on it. You say how can we use it and make it better and CO2 to methanol is just one of many ways.
