Recent reports of surge in coal production in the Appalachian coal fields. Amazing how fast a horse can run when you stop jerking on the reins.

Not to mention recent discoveries of manipulating scientific data to meet the agenda before the Paris party on so-called climate change.
Time to face facts. You can't produce enough wind and solar power to replace coal. Apparently, not everyone is in favor of wind turbines killing endangered species, or massive solar arrays in their back yard.
Two fatal accidents occurred in Delta County within a two-day span last week.
