Powder River Basin (PRB) coal producers don’t seem to be in a panic. They’re not rushing to the negotiating table with their adversaries, crafting details of a new carbon tax or cap-and-trade bill, or even attempting a major overall of the Clean Air Act to provide long-term certainty for their core operations in America.
In light of the Powder River Basin coal industry’s recent focus to ship more coal to China and other burgeoning Asian economies, industry officials are taking heat for not doing more to support the deployment of so-called advanced coal technologies here at home.
