On Thursday, June 20, 2013, federal officials gave the green light for a Montana Indian tribe to lease an estimated 1.4 billion tons of coal to a Wyoming company that's moving aggressively to expand its U.S. coal exports to Asia. The deal between Cloud Peak Energy and the Crow Tribe involves more coal than the U.S. consumes annually. (AP Photo/Matthew Brown)
