The EPA is trying to shut down half the coal plants in this country.Much of the US will probably still use coal in the next 50 years. It's ridiculous how much coal is in the US. Wiki says about 40-50% of current power generation is coal.
Most of the new generation is probably going to be natural gas, because apparently people have deluded themselves into thinking that natural gas is going to be cheap forever. And a few nukes sprinkled in.
