Exactly it doesnt make any sense besides a smear campaign, most inner city folk will be on nat gas due to storage, renting, availability and low cost.
If youre not in a concentrated area good luck getting natgas, i have the algoncuin pipe line going about a mile away but will they put it in, no way not dense enough in this area.
So we are left with five other choices besides coal.
Wood - well its cheap, takes a lot of room, some towns outlaw outside boilers, and then theres the cutting, splitting, ants, and seasoning. Also not as efficient but if you cant get anthracite then its an alternative.
Pellets - not as efficient and just as costly as coal.
Electrical - yeah right.
Propane - Dont even get me going on the thievery thats going on here. search this forum.
oil - Besides the fact its $$$$$, have you ever served, had a son-daughter or neighboor serve? Why send money to those that want to kill you?
Anyway were does 3000/ton coal fit in? Nowhere so the next logical explanation is that its a gag site or a smear campaign for either oil or nat gas industry.
