Hopefully I will be using coal to heat my house when I can find a supply channel.

Just replace coal with "Chinese solar panels" and you get the same thing.
How do solar panels blow up mountains, and give people black lung, and cause mercury poisoning?

If he really wanted to get rid of coal he would have restated the United States nuclear fuel recycling system, which he did and pushed nuclear power, which he quitely did but barely made any effort, if he would have made a real effort to push nuclear a good chunk of the oldest plants could have been closed around 2030.
We are closing coal plants all the time - it is too expensive. We are down to under 38%, last I heard. We are adding renewables more and more, and we will be much better off.
