Why Is the US Ditching Coal as an Energy Source

Featured, Peter Zeihan

By Peter Zeihan

Other than a slight bump in sales during the holidays (shoutout to all the naughty kids), coal has been on the decline for quite a while now. With more environmentally friendly alternatives surging into the spotlight, how does coal fit into the energy framework?

Coal once played a critical role in the US, but political shifts are pushing more and more states towards eco-friendly options like solar and wind. Even natural gas is getting some attention as it becomes more economically viable and a cleaner alternative to coal.

Although the US is stepping away from coal, the international market will likely continue to do well for years to come.
