COALS LAST STAND IS HERE NOW! PLEASE HELP, SAYS BILL REID
January 8, 2020 - “General Custer may not have known it, but we certainly do know that this is coal’s last stand. And that’s why everyone in the coal industry must stand up and fight!” said Bill Reid, Managing Editor of CoalZoom. “If what’s left of the US coal industry is to be saved, Obama’s EPA CO2 endangerment finding must be quickly overturned and we are asking for everyone’s help to fund our efforts before January 31 so that this can happen.”
This year, coal production is falling to 601 million tons or less reflecting continued idling and closing of coal mines. Within 10 years unless we act, 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 vital but we need everyone in the industry to help by contributing to the effort and making a donation so we can get this done.” said Reid.
The CoalZoom campaign was launched in November and already four videos have been released with another almost ready. The legal filing is taking place next month. The progress with “Saving US Coal” and the videos can be seen here.
“Everyone has a very simple choice to make,” said Reid. “We can either sit and do nothing or we can stand and fight for our industry that we all love and has made America great. I ask you to stand up with us and join the fight by making a donation to “Saving US Coal” before January 31. A form can be found here for your use to make this easy. Thank you!”
