The decline in US coal mining played a prominent role in the 2016 US presidential campaign. Donald Trump repeatedly promised to revive the US coal industry and bring back mining employment by removing environmental regulations. President Trump has reiterated these promises since the election. But can coal make a comeback? A paper by the Center on Global Energy Policy, co-authored by Trevor Houser, Jason Bordoff and Peter Marsters, addresses this question. After a brief presentation of the paper, the event will feature a panel discussion with: Jim Rogers, Former President, CEO and Chairman, Duke Energy Dr. Geoff Heal, Donald C.
