Not a sky is falling action, I just don't want to jump through hoops when I want it.
Obama and the EPA are trying to kill Bit coal and power plants that use it. Given that the bulk of anthracite is used for home heating by those of us who are loyal coal burners (but a fraction of total production) and for making steel or using in water filtration systems, I don't think anthracite coal production will go under. Not sure what price direction it will take, but given that it's almost as clean burning as natural gas, hopefully the Bamster
and his socialist cronies
won't target anthracite like they have Bit coal.
That said, I have 12-2400# skids of coal on pallets at my farm, all covered by tarps. That's my 4-5 year usage and I plan on having enough on hand when I want it.
