[OP-ED]: What really happened to coal?

 06/12/2017 - 08:58
Even if environmental regulation and climate change didn’t exist, the coal industry would have faced intense pressures to change and adapt. Government isn’t killing the coal industry. “Progress is the culprit,” concludes Kolstad’s study.
English

 The coal-mining jobs that President Trump thinks were destroyed by government regulation -- adopted to combat air pollution and global warming -- were actually lost to old-fashioned competition from other American firms and workers. Eastern coal mines lost market share to Western coal, which was cheaper. And natural gas grew at coal’s expense because it had low costs and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

[OP-ED]: ¿Qué pasó realmente con el carbón?

 06/12/2017 - 08:50
Si las regulaciones del medio ambiente y el cambio climático no existieran, la industria del carbón habría recibido intensas presiones para cambiar y adaptarse. El gobierno no está matando la industria del carbón. “El progreso es el culpable,” concluye el estudio de Kolstad.
Spanish

Los puestos en las minas de carbón que, según el presidente Trump, fueron destruidos por las regulaciones del gobierno—adoptadas para combatir la contaminación y el calentamiento global—se perdieron, en realidad, debido a la tradicional competencia con otras empresas y trabajadores. Las minas de carbón del Este perdieron su porción del mercado porque el carbón del Oeste, que era más barato, se la llevó. Y el gas natural creció a expensas del carbón porque tenía costos bajos y emisiones de gases de invernadero más bajas.
