ACC quoted in AP story on CO2 emissions
Jason Hayes, ACC Communications Director was quoted today in an AP story discussing the changing American energy diet and CO2 emissions.
Jason Hayes, a spokesman for the American Coal Council, based in Washington, predicted cheap gas won’t last.
“Coal is going to be here for a long time. Our export markets are growing. Demand is going up around the world. Even if we decide not to use it, everybody else wants it,” he said. Hayes also said the industry expects new coal-fired power plants will be built as pollution-control technology advances: “The industry will meet the challenge” of the EPA regulations.
