COAL OPERATORS, PLEASE STAND UP AND FIGHT FOR COAL, SAYS BILL REID
January 13, 2020 - “Today, as we begin our second week of appeals, we are asking our top ten coal operators as well as all other coal operators to stand up and help,“ said Bill Reid, Managing Editor, CoalZoom. “So, Peabody, Arch, Murray Energy, Cloud Peak, Alliance, Blackjewel, NACCO, CONSOL, Foresight, and Westmoreland, please join us and fight for our beloved coal industry and all the fine men and women in it.
“As you all know, 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 to you to help to fund our efforts to make it happen. We need to raise $450,000 by January 31.”
It is now widely known that in order to stop the complete destruction of coal, 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.
We suggest that coal operators proceed by January 31 as follows:
1. Appoint a coordinator in each company to bring employees attention to the “Saving US Coal” campaign at CoalZoom.
2. Encourage employees to take part and make a donation for coal.
3. Consider making a one-time contribution of 100% of each company’s 2020 budget for donations for a single donation to “Saving US Coal”.
4. Consider making a company donation to match your employee donations.
The CoalZoom campaign was launched in November and already four videos have been released with a fifth just released. The legal filing is planned for February as donations come in. The progress with “Saving US Coal” and the videos can be seen here.
“Each coal company has a very simple choice to make,” said Reid. “Either sit and do nothing or stand and fight for our beloved 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” before January 31. A form can be found here for your use and it’s easy to do. Please, please help now!
