    The coal is not going anywhere. Eventually a World class company that can extract it without destroying the environment will do it the right way and in the process create more jobs.. Why do some of you support shoddy companies that don't deserve to be in business.

    What you don't seem to understand is the company could have kept the jobs at a higher cost. Many companies eliminate jobs because of cost considerations. Environmental laws are nothing new and every other company has to abide by them for the common good. Why do you want to give this company a free pass to pollute?

    And the folks that work at that mine are out of work. So, who got hurt here?

    That's a problem that most Leftists have; ya'll can't see the big picture.

    Don't hold your breath. The coal won't be mined. Instead the country will import oil from foreign dictators. That's what environmentalists want.

    This mentality will become increasingly rare as Americans experience a decline in their living standards.

    They can, though to meet EPA guide lines in order to not cause permanent damage to the ecosystem the company will have to pony up an extra 55 cents per ton of coal.
