Energy crunch causes US coal use to surge under Biden
"A global gas supply crunch is pushing up natural gas prices around the world, making coal more attractive for electricity generation compared to gas.
Electricity demand has also grown faster than renewables, leaving coal-fired power plants to pick up the slack in Asia.
Rich Nolan, chief executive officer of the National Mining Association, the US mining trade group, said: “The markets have spoken.
“We’re seeing the essential nature of coal come roaring back.”
According to forecasts from the US Energy Information Administration, US power stations are set to burn 536.9m short tons of coal this year, compared to 436.5m in 2020."
Fuck Joe Biden!
