President Trumps Misleading Claims about New Mines and Clean Coal

The bottom line is that the Paris accord is very unfair at the highest level to the United States. Further, while the current agreement effectively blocks the development of clean coal in America, which it does. And the mines are starting to open up, having a big opening in two weeks, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, so many places. A big opening of a brand, new mine. Its unheard of. For many, many years that hasnt happened.

The Facts

.

The new mines that are scheduled to open, including in Pennsylvania and West Virginia, are ones that will produce metallurgical coal, which is used to make steel. This coal is used to produce coke, which is then used to blast the furnace to create metal. Its different from thermal coal, which is burned for steam to produce heat and electricity.

.

The big opening that Trump is referring to is the Corsa Coal Companys Acosta Deep Mine in Jennerstown, Pa. Corsa began work on this mine in September  two months before the presidential election. This mine is expected to create 70 to 100 full-time jobs, according to the company.

.

Several factors led to newfound optimism for metallurgical coal production among U.S. coal companies.

.

While the domestic market has remained relatively flat, international market demands  particularly the building boom in China  have sustained the metallurgical coal industry in the United States in recent years. The average price of metallurgical export saw an uptick at the end of 2016.

.

What do these metallurgical mines have to do with the Paris accord? Not a whole lot, except that the politics get mixed in. The Paris agreement was actually working more aggressively to curtail thermal coal use for the coal plants. There is some concern about metallurgical coal, but not much. But the coal trade itself is a huge part of the Paris agreement, said Tom Sanzillo, director of finance at the Institute for Energy Economics & Financial Analysis, which is supported by liberal philanthropies.

.

All carbon emissions, including emissions from metallurgical coal, contribute to climate change. But the Paris agreement focuses on thermal coal, because electricity production can be changed without affecting economic growth. Therefore, its a more feasible area for change than trying to find any substitutes for using coal to make steel.

.

The White House did not respond to our request for comment.

.

The rebound in metallurgical coal demand doesnt signal a long-term coal renaissance, analysts say. For one, the long-term projection of metallurgical coal exports by the United States through 2050 remains flat. And metallurgical coal production makes up less than 10 percent of U.S. production, according to E&E News.
