Amerikaanse steenkoolsector vreest einde fossiele branche

AMSTERDAM – De Amerikaanse steenkoolsector vreest dat de focus van Obama op groene energie het einde betekent voor de fossiele sector.

Een mijnwerker neemt een schep steenkool“Ik ben bang dat we in 2035 geëlimineerd zijn”, benadrukt Robert Murray, topman van steenkoolconcern Murray Energy, tegenover Reuters.

Hoewel Murray de schuld geeft aan het beleid van Obama, wordt de huidige krimp van de steenkoolsector gedreven door de vrije markt.

Tussen 2008 en 2012 werd er 16 procent meer aardgas uit de grond gehaald, waardoor steenkool relatief duurder is geworden.

100 steenkoolcentrales gesloten

Uit onderzoek blijkt dat sinds 2010 bijna 100 steenkoolcentrales zijn gesloten. 150 andere centrales hebben aangegeven voor het einde van dit decennium de deuren te willen sluiten.

In 2005 kwam 50 procent van alle elektriciteit in de VS uit steenkool. In 2012 is dat gedaald naar 38 procent.

    These three figures — William Rick Singer, Mark Riddell and Rudolph Meredith, respectively — are at the center of the nationwide scandal in which 33 parents are accused of using their wealth and means to help their children game the college admissions system.
    But those three names do not appear anywhere in the complaint text, though the document gives enough clues to make clear who is who. Instead, they are named as Cooperating Witness 1, 2 and 3, and each agreed to plead guilty and to cooperate with the government in the hope of obtaining leniency when they are sentenced, the complaint says.

    Trump was surrounded at Friday’s event by officials from Customs and Border Protection as well as surviving family members of those who have loved ones killed by undocumented immigrants. Attorney General William Barr was also at the President’s veto event.
    While some lawmakers including some Republicans — have argued against the President’s use of national emergency powers in this instance, the Justice Department set forth a robust defense of the President’s authority to do so in a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this month, according to a copy obtained by CNN on Friday.
    “The President acted well within his discretion in declaring a national emergency concerning the southern border,” wrote Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd, setting out the legal basis for the proclamation under the National Emergencies Act and additional statutory authorities, which largely tracks an internal memo issued by the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department.
