“Appalachian coal has fueled the nation for over a century, but it is a non-renewable resource and will run out some day. In 2000, the U.S. Geologic Survey estimated that the most economically recoverable coal in West Virginia would be mined out within 20-30 years. According to the four permit applications, surface mining on Coal River Mountain will produce coal and energy for about 14 years. In contrast, a wind farm will produce energy for as long as the wind blows.”

Coal is dead and everyone knows it.
