  1. Coal has been on the demise for some time now. Their leaders know this. They should be commended for moving toward cleaner coal, yet it still has to be mined and that causes issues know matter how clean the back end can be. Plus, people like Duke Energy are still working out the kinks in the coal gasification process. Fossil fuel industry leaders need to move into other forms of energy, as the planet clearly needs the de-emphasis on fossil fuel over the next ten to fifteen years. By the way, the alternative energy jobs are plentiful and are not as dirty, so this is not a jobs issue. I do find the move by this employer to be heartless, calculating and childish. People are truly commodities to these employers and they should be highlighted.Great post, BTG
