    Maybe the Bloomberg people are short and hoping to make a quick buck spreading rumors.

    Obama promised to destroy America's coal industry by saying his regulations would bankrupt any company who tried to build a coal-fired plant under his hostile anti-business regime.

    The price of natural gas has done just as much as the EPA to prevent companies from building new coal fired plants.
