Op-ed: Coal mining in Grand Staircase makes no sense 28.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
It does not make economic sense to open up the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument to coal mining — which would be a possibility if the monument boundary is redrawn. I have spent my career performing feasibility studies on coal mining projects around the world since I arrived in Utah 40 years ago. There is a time and place to develop a virgin coal project. This is neither the time nor the place. The coal deposit is in a high desert and very remote part of southern Utah with no paved road...

With California going coal-free, power plant near Utah's Delta switching to natural gas 27.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
California’s state ban on coal-fired power has prompted an independent plant in rural Utah to convert to natural gas. The Intermountain Power Agency, which owns the coal-fired Intermountain Power Project plant in near Delta, announced it has finalized plans to shutter the old coal units in favor of a new natural gas project. Coal-fired operations will cease at the site in 2025, at about the same time the new project comes online, according to the company. John Ward, a spokesman for Intermountain...

Adviser differs with coal-loving president 27.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • President Donald Trump has vowed to revive the coal industry and regularly promises to “put our miners back to work.” But one of his top White House advisers apparently does not share Trump’s affinity for coal.

Op-ed: Coal is a dead man walking; recreation is alive and well 26.5.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Last month, President Trump signed an executive order calling for the Department of Interior to review 56 of the most recently designated national monuments. These national monuments, designated under the 1906 Antiquities Act, aim to protect lands with natural, historic or scientific significance. Trump vows to do something that has never been done before, kill protection for these significant places. The current review could open the door to transferring these lands out of the national public t... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Diesel drivers who are &quot;rolling coal&quot; in Colorado could face $100 fines 23.5.2017 Steamboat Pilot

Colorado is riding hard on diesel truck drivers who “roll coal,” the politically charged display of power on the roads that has doused other vehicles, such as environmentally friendly Priuses, and pedestrians, including supporters of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, with sooty black smoke.

Gov. John Hickenlooper this week said he’ll gladly sign into law a bill lawmakers passed that lets police hit offenders with $100 fines.

“Coal rolling is a cruel cut to people with asthma or other respiratory issues,” Hickenlooper said. “We are well to be rid of it.”
