Obama’s War on Coal, via Halting Leases, Could Cost $650 Billion

From the Washington Examiner [1]:

The federal moratorium on coal leases could cost the U.S. economy $650 billion over the next 10 years, according to a study [2] released Thursday.

The American Action Forum, a center-right think tank, released its study “Examining the Economic Costs of the Administration’s Coal Moratorium” and argued the January decision to stop coal leasing on federal lands would be a huge detriment to the economy.
