    Energy Coalition


    by CEI

    In March 2009, in Washington, D.C., hundreds of anti-coal activists demonstrated against America's number one source of low-cost electricity generation. The far-left alliance Capitol Climate Action called on the U.S. Congress to combat global warming by ending the use of America's plentiful coal reserves. But coal generates over 50 percent of America’s energy. Coal costs merely one third of what alternative energy costs. And mountaintop mining – the technique that angers anti-coal activists the most — produces about 70 percent of all U.S. coal output. To combat the dangerous anti-coal agenda, the Competitive Enterprise Institute organized a counter-protest, dubbed the "Celebrate Coal and Keep Energy Affordable Rally."
