Mayor of NYC and all around smart, rich guy, Michael Bloomberg hates coal, as reported by The Hill. He says “coal is dead.”

Coal use is declining in the US, due to toughening environmental regulations (motivated largely by health concerns), and declining natural gas prices. However, coal is still the cheapest source of energy, burned in great quantities in many countries, including the US.

We’ve got a long way to go to end King Coal.
