That, or, banks won't give loans to coal companies because it's filthy, and not coincidentally, the largest contributor to the "fairy tale" of global warming.OrediggerPoke wrote: ↑Tue Nov 10, 2020 2:59 pmDomestically, this is 100% false. Coal demand has fallen domestically as a direct result of costs and abundance of cheap natural gas...which is purely because of *gasp* fracking unconventional reservoirs. Had the McMurrys never had the ingenuity to test frac methods in the tight reservoirs of the Jonah Field and had many companies not copied and improved upon the McMurry formula, PRB coal production would absolutely be at all time demand highs.
Believe what you want to believe. The solution to the death of coal isn't to replace it with a substance so toxic that an hour of exposure to it will cause your flesh to melt off your bones, your internal organs to liquify, and absolute agony for the last few hours of your life.
I know a lot of people in this state have made tons of money on coal, but is it even remotely possible that the future of the state could be tied to something other than toxic chemicals? Or is the only possible solution to poison our state, and the world, for profit?
