Why does Trump champion coal? Is the 19th century the "great" era he wants America to return to again?

    His mind set is that of his fathers and Grandfaher's generation and he thinks he can control people they way they did with coal.

    Perhaps your question belongs in the politics and government section.

    Because we have a great supply of it here in the US. Coal has many uses. People who are cold will use what they have available to stay warm. Everyone who complains about coal or natural gas would love to have it if their solar farm goes down. Hug all the trees you want but when you get cold enough you will heat just like a hungry enough vegan will eat meat.

    One man does not make or break a fuel. Consumers do. Buy what you like and let others do the same.Come up with a better more cost effective option and people will use it.

    One more liberal distortion. Trump "champions" free market.

    Obama/Hilery were working to destroy the coal industry intentionally. She even went to West Va and campaigned on that issue. Guess how W. Va. voted for first time in many years?

    Coal is cheap and provides the best bang for the buck.  Technology is driving methane to be a better choice IMO but in the meantime, coal still plays a role and Trump knows it.  Interestingly just about everyone knows it but ignorant alarmists.

    If you don't like coal, then don't use it.

    Coal rules, unless you don't wanna be self sufficient in cheap energy.
