As our government rallies to respond to financial problems from Coronavirus, let’s make sure the solutions serve the American people, not the fossil fuel industry. Coal companies are trying to get exemptions so they don’t have to pay to clean up old mines and to avoid paying the Black Lung Excise Tax, which provides medical services for over 25,000 sick miners. ⁣⁣My heart goes out to everyone who is losing their job right now, including coal miners in rural parts of Utah. But this is not the time to bail out big coal and oil. And we can’t lose site of carbon reduction goals either. ⁣⁣Photo: thinking back to the first clean energy rally I spoke at in 2011. My signs have changed but the sentiment has not. ⁣⁣
