Way too many people still want to diss solar and wind power production. The market will always win, and with those being or becoming cheaper than any other type of electrical power production.

Why deny that?

Coal is dead. Trump lied to West Virginia, and left them twisting in the wind.

Funny thing is...we've been hearing that since the 1970s. I guess that means the crying and whining about the tariff on Chinese solar panels will go away now.

Coal isn't going away, not for a while. This country may not use as much as it once did. However, other countries still do and they need it bad. These countries are nowhere near being close to using renewables. Coal exports will do very well in the coming years.

That being said It's highly doubtful that this party will span much further than the next generation. So the fine people who live in these mining communities better get their acts together and take advantage of the lifeline Trump threw them to get their children a better education that will help enable them to have a life. Because there isn't another lifeline coming for them after this one.

Coal simply cost too much $ to extract, in other countries that may not be the case.

It's the feel good lemming mentality. Repeat what you hear.

Solar has been hawked by charlatans since the 1970s. Only the gullible fall for it.

Maybe Exxon ?

Exxon Mobil to invest more than $50 billion in the US over 5 years.

The announcement puts Exxon on the board with a number of other companies that have announced employee bonuses and investments following President Donald Trump and GOP lawmakers' tax overhaul.
