The current break-even point of natural gas production in the Marcellus is about between $1.90 /MMBtu and $2.10 / MMBtu. ...which is MUCH MUCH lower than the breakeven price for coalbed methane production.

And right now Nat Gas prices are very low, with the huge increase in nat gas usage, prices aren't going to stay this low over time. Coal will certainly be very much in use in China, India and throughout the world for next 25 years. And the state of Wyoming does get a tremendous amount of tax revenue from coal, not to mention all the jobs associated with it. The EPA mandates setup by Obama have been stopped in court already. Exporting coal is a viable option that should be implemented. And we should let the market decide coals future, not lawyers and bureaucrats.

It's at the Snake River in Lewiston, which dumps into the Columbia River. Just over the hill from here (and 200 miles through the Clearwater River valley).

They're called 'The Labour Party' in Canada, FYI...
