August 3, 2013

On Aug. 15, area residents will get to hear about a wonderful success story for West Virginia. But even as it is being told, radical environmentalists will be working to make it no more than history....

The export bank may drop coal guarantees going forward as the World Bank has done. Met coal is a different issue. It is not burned for power.CO2 is not an issue.

The policies are anti coal now. One "can't fight City Hall" as they say.

And, another thing: Coal Ash can serve as an ore of strategic metals, Aluminum primary among them, for which we have no economically viable domestic source of virgin ore. The USDOE itself has affirmed that treating Coal Ash as a source of Aluminum could put an end to Aluminum ore imports. China's "Shenhua", the largest Coal mining company in the world, has an Aluminum refinery up and running that uses Coal Ash as the ore. The mineral residues, after Aluminum and other metals have been extracted, are consumed in the making of cement and concrete.

Just one follow-up to our post below: Carbon Dioxide emissions comprise one of the targets that have been painted on King Coal's back. As has been thoroughly documented for one of the editors of this esteemed organ of Coal Country communications, our United States Navy has developed an entire and complete suite of technologies, that, first, collects CO2 from the environment; and, then, converts that CO2 into liquid hydrocarbon fuels. The Navy has even designed ships that harness environmental energy to drive the processes, ships that would serve as "oilers" for the fleet; and, even had a pilot plant up and running. CO2 could, and should, be treated as a valuable byproduct of our use of Coal in the generation of abundant, affordable electric power.

Nonsense like this lawsuit could be easily obviated, made public laughing stock, if only the true, full value of Coal were not only, at long last, publicly and openly acknowledged; but, reduced to broad practice. Coal can be efficiently converted into any liquid fuel we now mortgage our great nation to the alien nations of OPEC to keep ourselves supplied with in the here and now. They have been doing that in South Africa for more than half a century; China has started doing it in a big way. Carbon Dioxide can, too, be converted into hydrocarbons. Right now, in Europe, some filling stations are selling fuel alcohol made from CO2. Coal Ash can be used and consumed in the making of high-performance concrete. The Reagan Building in DC, home of the EPA, is made of concrete filled with a high percentage of Coal Ash.
