An UPDATE on Coal


A couple months ago I posted a blog where I wondered why it seemed appropriate to store waste materials on the side of a river.  North Carolina is moving the fly ash.  Hopefully other states will – sounds like a great way to create jobs in the current economy people in Washington  – and at a discount!

But far more interesting was the announcement that despite prodding by the White House and Sen McConnell, the last coal fired plant owned by TVA in Kentucky was closing.  It is just not cost effective to build or even retrofit coal plants.  China and India are looking for ways to move away from coal.  It reiterates what I said before – coal is dead.  Let’s move on to the next thing, and invent it before someone else does and becomes the economic engine for the 20th century (China).
