Nope, in fact, along with other factors, if this new $40.00 per ton carbon tax idea sticks EVERYTHING you use and eat is going to go up fairly dramatically.
in the case of coal, $135.00 a ton bulk anthracite nut will go up by just over 33% even if all other elated costs remain static.
if you intend to continue this coal based home economy i suggest you buy as much as you can as soon as you can.

close up as many leaks in the envelope and add as much insulation as possible.
