Be prepared to have all that undone by the fossil fan Trump.

In Europe they dropped 23%, we already passed the 2020 targets three years ago. In Britain they dropped 35% since 1990.

Also in the UK, similar thing,

Quote:

"coal produced energy dropped to just 9.2% in 2016, down a huge 13.4% from 22.6% in 2015. In its place, wind power was able to provide 11.5% of all energy used in 2016. And wind power wasn’t the only win last year, as official figures revealed that in the last quarter of 2016 half of all the UK’s electricity came from a low carbon source.

It was also the year that saw Scotland was able to provide 106% of required energy requirements through renewable sources on a day in August"

Yeah. You're right, Paul. That DOES give us room to expand. At first, I was worried.

The demand for coal is dropping. So the only way to bring coal jobs back to the US is through subsidies.
