How Is The Coal Industry Faring? A Round Table Discussion on Today's Energy Policy
Chairman and CEO of Murray Energy, Mr. Bob Murray, with Jim Martin of the 60 Plus Association and Pat Boone, National Spokesperson for the 60 Plus Association join OCA President Chris Long in a round table discussion to address President Trump's promise to the coal industry and the challenges that are still facing the industry after the eight years of Obama's War on Coal. Mr. Murray gives us an update on the current market rate for coal compared to other energy sources - gas, wind, solar - and how coal remains an affordable, reliable option. Jim Martin and Pat Boone discuss the importance of affordable energy rates for seniors, families and those on fixed incomes, and how coal is helping to keep energy costs low, but he warned that if coal is eliminated from the energy supply, costs will go up for those who can least afford it.
