    to compete with the west.  I mean, they have lower delivery costs to the east, but that's about it.  It's just absurd how abundant and easy to get to the coal in states like Wyoming is.  The strata just underground in a good chunk of the state looks like this.

    That's why it's so absurd why people who think that energy shorages are going to somehow stop people from causing worse global warming.  They're not.  People are going to keep digging and burning this stuff faster and faster unless we do something to stop it, unless the cost of dumping ancient carbon into the atmosphere is made to be factored into the cost business of those who do it, some way or another.
