    Smart entrepreneurs should start a new insurance company to profit on the coal industry risks that will soon need better terms of coverage.

      What exactly is smart about jumping onto a dying industry? Outside of private equity firms whom the business model for is to drain every penny out of a dying company, this sounds like a horrible business plan.

        Only in energy rich America would non-thinking people call coal a “dying industry”. It is booming in China, which uses more coal daily than the rest of the world combined.

        Maybe Jon and his Leftist deep-thinking Climate Zealot buddies would like to warn China.

        If it weren’t for free-market fracking – which lowered energy prices AND reduced U.S. CO2 output – coal would be much bigger in the US too. (Until the Left kills fracking in order to raise energy costs on poor and middle class people.)

          Speaking of fracking, OK is getting as bad as CA tor placing quake. Not too many underwriters like betting against a sure thing.

            Oh, my God. Oklahoma has had how many 7.0 or greater quakes, Chicken Little? Just like CALIFORNIA!

            And is it worth it to continue, seeing that natural gas REDUCES our CO2 output? (Since you are so Climate Scared and all.)

            You haven’t had to place OK quake, huh? Doesn’t take a 7 to damage property.

            Did you see the news report 2 days ago from NBC, CNN and others that reported 11,000. scientists had signed a statement that the world was in a Climate Crisis and that urgent action was needed now?

            It was BIG news.

            And then the truth came out: it was 11,000. regular people putting their names on a website.

            Fake News. Again. And Again. And Again . . .

            Who believes it? You do.

            You haven’t had to place EQ in OK, huh? Who cares about your goalpost shifting, I don’t watch NBC or CNN.

            LOL Now he’s calling us chicken little over the fact that California has an earthquake issue. Your levels of denial on the right are astounding.

            So, 11,000 ‘scientists’ may have gotten their degrees online at a website supporting carbon taxes. I wonder if Al Gore is making money peddling the fake sheepskin?

            Fracking is another rabbit hole dug by our frequent liberal poster. It was a side issue mentioned by CC, with his key point being these sources of energy are not as onerous as some claim, and will REDUCE our CO2 EMISSIONS and energy COSTS

            Provide evidence to your “11,000” scientists claim, except you won’t, because that claim is garbage, like your argument. Fracking is another serious issue that you will deny because the right wants you to deny it, and you have no evidence to say fracking is safe. What you do have is evidence of increased earthquakes in areas with a lot of fracking. Baa baa on little sheep, your misinformation holds no weight.

        Nothing about the coal industry is dying, except in your liberal mindset wishful thinking.
