Struggling Coal States Take ‘Woke’ Neighbors to Court (Podcast)

It’s no secret that the coal industry is struggling, with renewable energy getting cheaper and a glut of natural gas flooding the market. The governors of some coal-producing states are trying to halt this downward spiral by taking their neighbors to court.

On this episode of our environmental podcast, Parts Per Billion, Bloomberg Law correspondent Tripp Baltz outlines the arguments these states are making. He says Republican-led states are blaming the potential shuttering of coal-fired power plants on renewable energy mandates pushed by, as one governor put it, “woke, overzealous regulators.”
