The war on coal

North Dakota leaders and the coal industry are ready to go to war against the president’s plan to reduce carbon emissions from coal plants.
“There is a concerted and very real effort to basically eliminate the use of coal as a fuel source,” U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp told BHG News Service. “I don’t think there is any doubt, and no one should have any illusions, that there is a war on coal and we are in this for the long haul.”
