We should celebrate fossil fuels, not condemn themAbove: Forward-looking men and women who used their energies to develop machines and enhance their efficiency with the ultimate goal of helping humankind brought about the ingenuity that created projects like the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal.

No one in history has ever won a purely defensive war. Even with no U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulatory constraints, coal industries must deploy their Spreadsheet Army of generation planners and CFOs to aggressively address the problems of shrinking demand, the high cost of upgrade money, unavailability of engaged and adequately trained employees, the destabilizing financial impact of disruptive technological innovation and the rising cost of maintaining older equipment if coal is to survive as an industry.
