ABSTRACT
The article addresses the challenges faced by the coal industry in the U.S. The Senate is considering a number of bills for reducing carbon emissions from power plants in hopes of persuading voters that global warming is being addressed. A bill co-sponsored by Senators Joe Lieberman of Connecticut and John Warner of Virginia would impose high costs not only on the coal industry, but on consumers who rely on coal for their electricity. In New York, meanwhile, a handful of major investment banks refused to finance coal plants.
