I thought Asian countries were moving toward a solar industry? Why would they still want coal? If the Asian countries are where it is going then international pressure needs to be put on the countries that the coal is going to. If the consumer no longer wants the product, then the product falls to the wayside....and business no longer wants the product.
I also want to know if the US Federal Government has stepped in and said the Pacific Northwest has no choice but to accept the coal???
Is there anyway to force the companies shipping the coal to cover it, and to have bonds that will cover all cleanup should the trains derail?
Just questions and ideas to figure out how we stop the destruction created by use, and mining of coal...
