    I appreciate your mentioning the instability of prices.  China is building rail systems to their own coal resources. Once that is done – in about 2015 – they won’t have much need for US coal.

    For US coal companies and their partners – SAA, Goldman Sachs, etc. – this is business as usual.  But at what cost?

    There are no new coal burning power plants on the books in the US.  The US coal companies are looking for new markets.  Coal is so toxic, it is becoming the energy source that no healthy community wants anything to do with.

    You surely do not understand the global coal industry. The Powder River Basin coal we are exporting from the Pacific Northwest is low sulfur and clean burning. China will burn wahtever coal it can get, and by denying them our clean burning coal you raging environazi’s just ensure that they will instead burn dirty sulfur laden lignite from Indonesia. Indonesia has no environazis like yourself  preventing them from exporting coal from their ports and China has no compunction about burning dirty Indonesian lignite. You NIMBY environazis are erroneously increasing the amount of atmospheric SOx just so that you can feel good about not seeing the coal moved on trains to the electricity plant. Furthermore the environmentally mining practices of American miners are orders of magnitude friendlier to the earth than that of Indonesian Lignite miners. American Powder River Basin coal is the cleanest burning in the world and mined the best way Lignite the dirtiest. and mined the worst Good job you environazi nimbys, now I have to breath SOx and the beautiful  Indonesian landscape gets raped with no remediation afterwards.

    I am 100% agree with Nunya Bizness.  No matter what the Environmentalist do, they will breath exhaust from China eventually. 
    US west – better stop cutting trees and exporting it. 
    Coal will bring new business and build economy. They should learn from China, be united for Country’s progress.
