America Was Built on Coal. Now Biden Wants to Abolish It

“The one promise that President Joe Biden has faithfully kept is his pledge to ‘close down’ fossil fuels. We get two-thirds of our energy in America from fossil fuels, and almost one-third of our power comes from coal. That’s quadruple the amount of energy we get from wind and solar, which are niche forms of energy. But Biden doesn’t see it that way. He recently reiterated his pledge to end coal production altogether. ‘No one is building new coal plants because they can’t rely on it,’ Biden said on Nov. 4 while in California. ‘We’re going to be shutting these plants down all across America and having wind and solar.’ I hope the people in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Wyoming are listening because thousands of mostly union jobs are associated with the coal plants he wants to shutter.” (11/15/22)
