Where Coal is King – James Higdon – POLITICO

Coal, once the prevailing method of generating energy, has become the pariah of earth, water, and air. That is, except in Kentucky. They make good money off coal. And they have a lot of it. It does not matter that coal is dirty to mine, use, and clean up after.

When it comes to coal, there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans. There is no red Kentucky or blue Kentucky. There is only charcoal black.
