Coal is a 19th century fuel in a 21st century world.
It is out of date and filthiest of fossil fuels. Modernize for god’s sake.
Wasting money to protect a vanishing industry makes no sense at all.
You have a great potential from power generation (883 million MWh/yr) from wind and solar (72 million MWh/yr) and as a State you only use about 12 million MWh/yr.
That 12 million MWh/yr could be supplied for free in State.
Coal only employs 4,500 people in Wyoming.
Do you want to be an economic leader?
Or be stuck in a disappearing past?
