most utilities are making the switch from coal because of the costly upgrades they will have to make to make their business conform to the new EPA pollution laws. tell me how your great management is going to deal with this???? the coal industry will be depressed for a long time.

The rapidly growing economies of China and Asia use coal. Further they have rational energy policies to move natural gas into surface fuel displacing the oil in gasoline. Further they have ordered the phase out of food based ethanol insanity in favor of methanol. Which over comes the lack of infrastructure to use natural gas directly in the short term.
Also, the co2 recycling technology for natural gas methanol production is already in commercial use. The coal co2 streams are not as clean so more difficult to utilize but there is true economic along with policy incentive to achieve practical application in a few years.
Europe is made itself an increasing irrelevant has been with all its pagan worship of quack environmental theology they label 'science'.
Asia will continue to use more and more coal as it is the cheapest source. Something Obama and our delusional environmentalists have caused.
Poly-generation with coal is the answer if you are rational and believe in the Global Warming religion.
Coal is not going away no matter what foolish and delusional policies Obama/Progressives impose on us.
