COALZOOM LAUNCHES 3-WEEK APPEAL FOR SAVING US COAL CAMPAIGN
January 6, 2020 - “For the next three weeks till January 31, we are appealing to members of the coal industry for help in our efforts in “Saving US Coal”, said Bill Reid, Managing Editor, CoalZoom. “We are asking for coal operators, mining machinery manufacturers, service providers, consultants, educators, mining associations and all friends of coal to make donations to fund our efforts.
“If what’s left of the US coal industry is to be saved, Obama’s EPA CO2 endangerment finding must be overturned quickly and we are appealing for everyone’s help in making a financial donation to fund our efforts to make this happen.”
Coal production this year will fall to 601 million tons or less reflecting continued idling and closing of mines. Moody’s expects that within 10 years production will fall to about 300 million tons as coal power plants are closed in the name of reducing CO2 levels.
To stop this decline, CoalZoom has teamed up with respected industry leader, Fred Palmer, and internationally renowned scientist, Dr. Craig Idso, in the campaign “Saving US Coal” with the single goal of overturning the CO2 endangerment finding. “It is now crystal clear that the overturning of the CO2 endangerment finding is the only way the American coal industry can be saved from total destruction,” said Reid.
The CoalZoom campaign was launched in November and already four videos have been released with another in the pipeline. The legal filing is planned for later this month. The progress with “Saving US Coal” and the videos can be seen here.
“We have a simple choice to make,” said Reid. “We can either do nothing or we can stand and fight for our coal industry that has helped make America great. I implore you to stand up with us and join the fight by making a donation to “Saving US Coal”. A form can be found here for your use to make this easy to do. Thank you!”
