Quite wrong, Goosey, as usual. Obama's policy will result not in coal not being mined, but mined and sold to other developing countries. His policies will result in huge increases in energy costs to the average American and as with his other policies, will bring economic hardship on this country. Liberal theory put into practice always results in economic hardship.

Notice ALL of the growth is from exports.

So other countries get the benefit of cheap energy from coal while the USA suffers because Obama is dumb as dirt.

India and China have a simple energy policy: ALL of the above. Coal, Oil, natural gas, nuclear, solar, wind, hydroelectric, etc. etc.
