You can not hope that the wind blows, or the sun shines, to power America.
What about the rivers flowing, waves and atoms breaking.............We still need the gas and oil for transportation and to make the 99% of everthing we make and consume.
Does anyone know how much of the coal is shipped overseas?
The EIAs full anual report will be out this month but here is a link to the pre report. I didn't read very much but they say 93% of US coal goes to US power generation so there is probably less exports and more imports. I've wondered where metalurgical coal comes from, the demand is allready high. With increased steel demand for pipes, casing and tubing one would think demand would be higher then ever. Maybe someone can chime in that knows the industry. Do you need coal to make coke to make steel and does it come from local mines? http://www.eia.gov/forecasts/aeo/er/early_production.cfm
That half acre of land where he doesn't own the coal just got really expensive for him.... like $7,999,999,999.99 expensive. Let the negotiations begin in SW belmont County.
Maybe all of the landowners who could potentially be harmed financially by Mr Murray's attempt to impede the oil and gas leasing need to file a class action suit against Murray Energy. Based on our early coal deed language, we have the right to drill through the coal vein. He is attempting to squash that right thereby obstructing our ability to financially benefit from potential leases. Maybe it's time to stand up for a change! Mr. Murray is not the all powerful OZ. Time to pull back the curtain....
Amen to that. Murray is someone that needs knocked off his self made thrown! The long wall wrecks total havock with people's live's and homes. Why don't we get a group of LO together to stop this bully. When the curtain falls alot of things will be revealed that has been under the Murray thumb for decades.
