    will be the the death blow to the coal industry.  The environmental and health concerns are just so great, that if you contribute those societal costs to the actual cost of coal extraction, it just isn't worth it.

    My only concern is just what to do about the people whose livelihood are dependent upon the coal industry.  Now more than ever we need strong politicians/platforms to step up and provide new opportunities where the old just aren't viable for a healthy planet earth and its inhabitants.  A jobs program (preferably in green energy), increased eduction opportunities, increase in the social safety net, and dozens of progressive ideas would certainly fill this void.
