Coal is a combustible black or brownish-black sedimentary rock usually occurring in rock strata in layers or veins called coal beds or coal seams.The harder forms, such as anthracite coal, can be regarded as metamorphic rock because of later exposure to elevated temperature and pressure.
In 2011, U.S. coal-fired power plants produced 1,828 million tons of CO 2-equivalents – 31.8% of U.S. CO 2 emissions from energy-related activities, and 5.8% of total world CO 2 fossil fuel emissions.
President Donald Trump has ordered a rescue of the nation's struggling coal and nuclear power industries, but that doesn't mean utilities are reconsidering the shutdown of unprofitable plants.
