It is a free digest delivered to your inbox daily containing a comprehensive list of the web's best articles on coal. It is an industry that has been in a perpetual state of change for several decades now. That change has been brought on by competing influences. On the one hand, the demand for coal is as strong as ever, but, on the other hand, there is a growing desire for green and renewable forms of energy. The coal industry still produces over 7,000 million tons of coal every year. The largest producing nations are China, the USA and India. Some mines, including some in the United States, are coming to the end of their natural life. The eastern United States has been particularly affected by this. But the demand for coal continues to grow, and it is still the main fuel used in the production of electricity in America.
