I missed the part where your link talks about H-1 visas and a shortage of workers when the topic of your link was coal.  But then again.....

The funniest quote I read today was Trump should not get a chance to nominate a Supreme Court justice in his last year of his presidency....


 I do see impeachment proceedings starting in the future.

Hard to understand why he even bothered, what with all judges being crooked foreigners anyway.

And the companies making decisions on the future of coal are sticking to the economics so it really does not matter.
http://www.businessinsider.com/r-trump-declares-end-to-war-on-coal-but-utilities-arent-listening-2017-4
“...another sign the Trump administration has stopped what it saw as a “war on coal” by the federal government...”-

If you listen to Fox news renewable energy is in a death spiral with a 23% drop in spending in 2016.  When you look at the reality of it capacity installed actually increased 8% last year and much lower costs allowed more to be installed with less investment.  How you can spin the news any way you want and Fox does that a lot.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/world-investment-green-power-down-money-went-further-130537082.html

"Wind and solar energy have arrived at costs that would have seemed inconceivably low a few years ago," Moslener said.
Investment in new renewables capacity, which avoids emitting carbon dioxide when being operated, was roughly double that in fossil fuel generation, he also noted.

Yes no direct power from solar when the sun goes down, unless you are following the growing trend with energy storage that accounts for a night without sun.  More and more are getting into it and costs have gone down dramatically.  Long way to go but in 20 years this world will look a lot different even with coal and gas a part of it still.  Coal on it's way out, short term replaced by cheaper gas, long term renewables.  You may not be around to see the dramic shift but it clearly will happen and is driven by the economics of it.  You can't expect them to shut down every coal plant overnight when they have 30 plus years of life, but in the last 5 years you saw a dramatic shift away from coal already in the US.  More than half the global investment is in renewables now, not fossil fuel.  You do the math over the next few decades.  By 2021 28% is projected to be renewable globally.  Way more jobs as well in renewables now than coal in the US.  Sit back and watch it grow and bring good jobs with it.

An enlightening read, particularly for the usually hack YAHOO “news’ feed service.

Another company setting an example and the economics of it make perfect sense.  Why not when you can get it this cheap vs. the alternative.

https://www.fool.com/investing/2017/04/01/the-king-of-beers-joins-the-renewable-energy-bandw.aspx

The Mexico announcement is interesting because the country held two renewable energy auctions in 2016 that got very favorable terms. A year ago, bids were announced at 5.07 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity and by October bids averaged 3.35 cents per kWh for clean energy. This compares to average retail electricity prices of about 12 cents per kWh, so renewable energy is very economical for big companies.

It's not ognna be government that drives it. It'll be the market.

Well, if Trump took credit for Jan and Feb when it was around 250,000 each, he surely owns March:

http://www.cnbc.com/2017/04/07/march-nonfarm-payrolls.html

US created only 98,000 jobs in March, vs 180,000 expected

Ok... let's do this.... Instead of..."Well the previous administration started it under their watch so they should get the credit...." Why don't we follow the rule...


"IF IT HAPPENS UNDER THE PRESENT ADMINISTRATION...good or bad... IT IS THEIRS TO CLAIM/OWN."  But, as always, we give the good to the previous and the bad to the present. We parse this shit all the time and all it does is...hmmmmm NOTHING!!!!

Ok lets give the drop in jobs to Trump... even though lower... some say due to WEATHER and businesses going bankrupt... it is still...to the PLUS. And... the national unemployment number is what... 4.5%...lowest in what.... a decade??? Well we all know the U-3 is the official unemployment rate and the U-6 is a broader calculation but we only hear of the rates maybe 4-7%. The later seems to be the one used to do general rating and lower the number ...the better it is...in all the calculations..so here goes...

https://www.thebalance.com/what-is-the-real-unemployment-rate-3306198

No mater how you look at it, this... seems the Trump Admin has started the growth back again... from  Obama's start at say 54% down to 49% average of U-3/U-6. So...who takes "credit" for that??? And... it this accurate/ or do we argue about that as well? Tiring at best... frustrating at the worst.. >:(
