Renewables shatter records as coal production drops to 1978 levels

In my view, this has nothing to do with the 70,000 unemployed miners (renewables employ 2.5x as many people as fossil in the US, so it’s time they got some retraining), they are merely canaries in Trump’s coal mine of fossil fuel deceit.

What this is about is Trump’s collusion — and likely personal financial interest in- big oil and its previously embargoed exploitation of Russian reserves. Just last week, Putin the puppetmaster reversed his stance on climate change and support for the Paris Accord.

It’s time for this dangerous charade to come to an end.
