Wyoming Threatens to Sue States That Won’t Buy its Coal – Mother Jones Move over West Virginia

A new state law has created a $1.2 million fund to be used by Wyoming’s governor to take legal action against other states that opt to power themselves with clean energy such as solar and wind, in order to meet targets to tackle the climate crisis, rather than burn Wyoming’s coal.

Wyoming is America’s largest coal-producing state, digging up nearly 40 percent of the coal produced nationally each year. The state is heavily dependent upon revenues from mining to run basic services and as it produces 14 times more energy than it consumes, selling coal to other states is a vital source of income.

Repost. See thread “Wyoming setting money aside to sue Colorado for their energy policies”

Hmm, could Wyoming also generate wind or solar to offset the costs from losing some coal business?

Oh, and state's rights?
