Editorial: What a Smart Energy Transition Must Look Like

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享From the Akron Beacon Journal:Consider that today roughly 70,000 people work in the coal industry while 88,000 work in wind power. Note that Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway have plowed $15 billion into wind farms. The coal industry will be affected adversely by the Clean Power Plan of the federal Environmental Protection Agency. Yet employment in the industry already has suffered, especially going back to the 1980s, and not because of regulation for the most part.Coal mining has become more efficient, employment levels declining nearly 90 percent since the 1920s, even as production nearly doubled.Add the recent glut of natural gas, driven by new discoveries in this part of the country and the expansion of hydraulic fracturing. Amazon wants to see its storage facilities powered by renewable sources. Other companies have joined in seeking reduced emissions and lower prices, alert to climate change and the company bottom line.Thus, right here in Ohio, you can see the shift, from coal mining to jobs in natural gas and renewable energy. That is how a dynamic economy works, and Hillary Clinton, for all the grief she has taken, outlined what a smart transition must look like.Contrast what Clinton said with the words of Donald Trump during a recent stop in West Virginia: “We’re going to get those miners back to work,” adding: “The miners of West Virginia and Pennsylvania … Ohio and all over are going to start to work again, believe me.” Not in coal mines, short of an economic miracle. The Trump “guarantee,” in its way, reflects what is so discouraging about our political conversation. It is a formula for disappointment, promise big, then fail to deliver.Full item: Why coal faces hard times, and Hillary Clinton deserves better Editorial: What a Smart Energy Transition Must Look Likelast_img read more
