Speaking of Coal

I mentioned coal mining in my previous post because a while back I saw an article on a West Virginia town that was deliberately diversifying their energy production potential. (I can’t find it now.) As well as being sick of the environmental disasters, they realized they are dependent on a finite resource and needed to diversify not only energy production, but jobs to limit the economic impact on the town if/when the local mines closed.

But sentiment and current legislation make it an uphill battle.
