End Dangerous and Obsolete Coal Industry

Target: James Conley Justice II, Governor of West Virginia

Goal: Support Appalachian coal miners’ push to end the industry.

West Virginia coal miners are rooting for the Green New Deal to end the coal industry after President Trump’s failure to keep his promise to revive the industry’s job market. The market has yet to be revived, and the dangers of coal are becoming more and more present across the planet as time goes on. “It can never be back to what it was in our heyday,” says longtime miner Jimmy Simpkins of the industry’s gradual decline.

Unfortunately, the miners are not seeing much support for their endeavor. President Trump claims the Green New Deal and any support for it will “kill millions of jobs,” while the industry itself fights to stay in business with the aid of the Republican party. They fail to realize that the coal industry is becoming obsolete due to their own selfish interests; cleaner energy sources will not net Trump or the Republicans much of a profit, after all.

Coal is fast becoming obsolete, and the government must learn to reflect this by supporting cleaner energy sources. Sign this petition to push for the Green New Deal to gain more ground against the coal industry.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Governor Justice,

Coal miners are rooting for the Green New Deal as they realize the coal industry is fading, no longer what it once was. Unfortunately, the Republican party is pushing back against the Green New Deal as hard as they can, concerned only with the monetary gain from coal and their refusal to admit that the president failed.

You must support the miners and the Green New Deal in ending the coal industry. Such a move will be a boon for the environment, bringing cleaner air and water as well as saving the green spaces cut down to make room for coal mines and plants. It is time to phase out coal entirely in favor of cleaner energy sources.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    It’s true that coal is fast becoming obsolete and for good reason…it’s dirty and dangerous. We need to wean ourselves off of reliance on fossil fuels and dirty energy and maximize the benefits of renewable anergy resources. It’s better for the planet, thus better for the humans and animals. We need the New Green Deal since our planet is dying and taking us with it. Most of the resistance to clean energy is emanating from conservatives who invested in oil companies and care only about one thing: lining their pockets. It’s all about the almighty dollar with those people.

  3. End the dangerous and obsolete Coal Industry Worldwide, especially in Australia where the Australian Government couldn’t care less. All they think of is their pure GREED.

  4. Justin Recht says:

    Coal is death, and so are the minds of those that promote it!
    Germany closed all coal mined years ago!
    Alternatives are here – used them!
