    Natural gas is cheap, power is moving toward it.

    Supply and demand.

    True when it is private investment. It is generally false when the government takes money from one person to give to another.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    Alternative energy is cheaper and cleaner (without subsidies).
    The only people who want coal are Trump, his billionaire buddies, and unenlightened people who believe that coal is cheap and clean.
    If you are right then no regulations are required. The free market will end our use of inexpensive coal.

    But you are not right. You are a leftist.

    For some reason, liberals think that the only viable sources of energy for modern society are the ones which aren't viable yet today.

    I doubt that it is possible for you to actually understand the comments you read.

    You are correct. When coal ceases to be an economically viable source of energy the industry will die.

    It's clear that there are certain people who have no ability to enter into a reasonable and intelligent discussion on just about any issue.
