Thanks, troop, for such insightful comments. I'm tired of arguing with people who think this is going to create jobs. We don't create jobs by exporting a raw material, that comes from manufacturing and those jobs have already been exported to China. This is wrong on every level, from the mining of our public lands in Montana and Wyoming, to trying to make a buck by exporting a dirty fuel to a developing country. If they want coal, let's see if they want some buffalo chips, too! The global economy is mirrored by the global climate crisis, simply exporting coal doesn't make it any more palatable as a fuel.
