The U.S. may be moving away from coal but the rest of the world isn't, with ~1,200 coal plants on the drawing board, the World Resources Institute reports. Many of the proposed new plants are in China and India, and a growing number are being proposed for developing countries such as Cambodia, Guatemala and Uzbekistan, nations looking for cut-rate sources of energy to fuel economic growth.

  • After coal stocks and railroads hauling coal go to 52 week low, now this little blurb comes out by ETFs? This little 'fact' (or speculation) wasn't available way back when?
