    Does Trump really need a limey kunt like you kissing his ass from across the Atlantic?

    Trump claimed he'd bring back coal and he didn't.

    Just one lie out of the longest string of Presidential lies in the history of America.

    I hope the dumbass blue collar hillbillies in WV who voted for him based on that big, fat lie are taking turns kicking each other in the ass with their steel toed safety boots right now.

    he Energy Information Administration reports that U.S. coal exports doubled in 2017 and are expected to rise again this year. In West Virginia, coal exports increased from 24 million tons in 2016 to 34 million last year, a rise of 42 percent.

    “The rebound shows coal’s resilience, especially in emerging regions, and recent events suggest the market for black combustible rock will remain strong,” reported the Journal.
    “In the U.S., the Trump administration has proposed to reverse U.S. rules on coal emissions, and countries including India and Vietnam are planning major coal projects.”
    The resurgence of coal is startling given the considerable obstacles.

    Coal plants are attractive because they are less expensive to build than renewable energy facilities,” the Journal reports. “The cost of constructing a renewables plant is roughly double the outlay of a fossil-fuel facility, experts say.”
    He does point out that global markets are fickle and fluctuations in economic growth as well as trade policy decisions...

    Exporting US coal is not new. Mines are still closing and the number of coal mining jobs is still declining.

    Same is true in the UK.

    so what you're saying is the new coal mine that's just opening up in Australia is going to increase US exports of coal to Asia. Now do you understand how stupid you are?

    Those who are effectively political truth haters, the far right, have been told repeatedly that the closure of coal mines is inescapable, yet the criminals keep opposing the fact.
