The real history behind the coal wars that have dominated the American political agenda for the last several decades is in the courts.
But here are three key takeaways from the history that the public is rarely told about the coal-fired power industry:1.
It is no longer a battle over energy.
In fact, the energy industry has become one of the most powerful industries in America today.
It controls the political and economic levers of power.
And the coal industry is the largest employer in America.2.
The industry has lost millions of jobs.
Coal companies lost an estimated 3 million jobs between 1990 and 2009.
Coal mines in Appalachia are among the poorest places in the country.
The coal industry has shed thousands of coal jobs since 2010.3.
The courts have repeatedly ruled against the coal companies.
The Supreme Court upheld a 2008 decision that invalidated a coal mine permit for a Pennsylvania mine that had been approved by the Bureau of Land Management.
And in 2014, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit overturned a permit issued to the owner of a coal-burning power plant in West Virginia that had become too large to handle.
All three cases are considered major victories for the coal interests.
The coal industry’s lobbying effort to block the EPA’s rule has been led by former Vice President Dick Cheney, who has served as a major energy and mining donor to Republican politicians and the fossil fuel industry.
The lobbying effort has paid off.
The EPA’s proposed rule would have forced coal- and gas-fired electricity plants to reduce carbon emissions from power plants and other sources and increase the efficiency of power plants.
That rule is expected to be finalized in December.
The Obama administration has not announced its decision on the rule.
The American Lung Association has also been active in the coal battle, but its involvement is minimal.
The EPA’s proposal is designed to curb carbon pollution from power stations by encouraging the use of natural gas and coal as fuel.
The rule would also limit carbon emissions that are released when natural gas plants burn natural gas, and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 25 percent.
The agency’s proposed rules would also require coal plants to meet emissions standards, improve energy efficiency, and ensure that natural gas supplies are not being diverted to other sources.
Coal plants emit about 70 percent of carbon dioxide and produce about 4 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions.
In addition to opposing the EPA rule, coal companies and their allies have spent billions of dollars lobbying against other environmental regulations, including the Clean Power Plan, which requires states to reduce greenhouse gas pollution from coal-fueled power plants, as well as a proposed rule from the Obama administration to limit methane emissions from oil and gas wells and methane leaking from mines.
The U.N. has criticized the Obama EPA rule as a failure to meet its obligations under international law, and has called on President Donald Trump to withdraw it.
The U.K. government, meanwhile, has repeatedly urged the administration to stay the rule in its current form, and President Trump has signed executive orders on the issue.
A recent study found that the coal lobby spent $1.1 billion to defeat the EPA rules in the U, U. S. and Canada.
That study was commissioned by the Coalitions for America, a coalition of coal interests, and conducted by researchers from the University of Chicago and Stanford University.
The study also found that in the three years after the EPA announced the rule, it had lost over 300,000 jobs.
A report from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis also found the coal power industry lost 2 million jobs during that time period.
In fact, a number of studies have shown that the decline in coal employment is a direct result of the coal plant closures that the EPA and coal industry pushed through.
One study found a 13 percent decline in the number of coal-related jobs in 2014.
The report also found a 17 percent decline during the same period in coal plants that closed in the 1980s and 1990s.
The American Lung Alliance, a nonprofit that advocates for environmental health and public health, has criticized President Trump for his recent decision to end the coal production tax credit (PTC).
The PTC was designed to provide subsidies for the energy sector that are meant to offset some of the cost of keeping coal plants open.
It also provides incentives to coal plants and companies to build and operate cleaner power plants by lowering their carbon footprints and improving efficiency.
In April, the EPA said it would end the PTC program in 2018, saying that the rule “has become a model for other states to implement” on carbon emissions.
Trump’s decision is being challenged in court by environmental groups, as is his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.
Both have been criticized by environmental and public interest groups.
The Environmental Protection Agency is currently negotiating with the industry on a new coal rule.
This rule will be the final rule of its kind and the first since the Obama era.
The administration is hoping to conclude the rule before the end of the year. But it’s
