The war on coal in the American Midwest
When coal industry veterans in states such as West Virginia and Kentucky invoke a "war on coal," they're talking about a conspiracy — a cabal of federal bureaucrats who don't like the industry (or modernity, or energy) trying to drive a job creator and economic-growth engine out of business. But the reality is much different. A host of economic, political, and environmental concerns are pushing organizations—many of them profit-seeking businesses—to try to use less coal or stop using it altogether.
