There was an interesting article about the flow of capital towards the coal industry in Utilitpoint's IssueAlert last week.

The article is well worth reading, and a trend to keep an eye on.  Coal has long made up a large portion of U.S. electric generating capacity, and though in recent years gas-fired generation (which is much cleaner burning) has dominated the "new-build" plans, coal-fired geenrating plants have begun tio make a modest comeback as the price of natural gas has risen.
