I was always astonished how much the "0" administration and all the uber liberal minions demonized coal, AND they went out of their way to shut down the entire industry.
They did not try to clean it up or use technology to make it better, their stated mission was to shut it down. One of the major proponents of all this was the Rockefeller family. Does anyone remember how Rockefeller made his billions???
The Rockefeller's do a lot of good things too, but I was always amazed that they got away with an active role in shutting down the coal industry.
I have a friend in the metal manufacturing business who had some very valuable contracts making clean air scrubbers for the coal fired electrical plants. These all vanished when the "0" administration took power. He can verify that hundreds or even thousands of jobs were lost from this... I wonder if they will ever come back??
