CHANGES IN REGS MAY NOT HELP #COAL

President Donald Trump’s orders to roll back Obama-era climate change regulations and lift a top on the sale of coal mining leases on federal lands may not be enough to boost the floundering coal industry. Experts say coal’s biggest problem isn’t regulations, but rather cheap and abundant natural gas. Fracking has helped to drop gas prices, making it more attractive than coal for many utilities.
