The Obama administration introduced the original moratorium on new mining leases to curb the environmental consequences of coal.

Japan is the world's largest importer of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and the third-largest coal importer. Japan's rapidly aging population, which has begun to decrease overall, continues to send ripple effects through its society and economy, shaping present and future demand in economic spheres as disparate as robotics and pharmaceuticals, franchise and real estate.

Atmospheric carbon dioxide sequestered as carbonates through the accelerated weathering of silicate minerals is proposed as a climate change mitigation technology with the potential to capture billions of tonnes of carbon per year. Although these materials can be mined expressly for carbonation, they are also produced by human activities (cement, iron and steel making, coal combustion, etc

The coal industry has been virtually ignored by the Carter Administration and the Democratic Congress. In 1977, President Carter promised to double coal production by 1985. Instead, because of obstructionist actions of the Administration, coal production has increased by only 11 percent to date and future prospects are dim.

The coal company produced mid-volatile metallurgical coal operating near Carbondale, Colorado, supplying the two primary coke plants in the Western United States.

Most North American coal is high quality: 46% is bituminous, 40.7% subbituminous, and only 13.2% lignite, which has the lowest heat content of the three types of coal (World Energy Council 2013). The majority of these coal reserves, almost 6.95 ZJ, are in the United States, which produced 23.8 EJ of coal

The Trump Administration also sought to open additional offshore tracts to oil exploration and production through a revised five-year outer continental shelf (OCS) leasing program for 2019-2024. The draft plan proposed opening over 90% of the OCS to energy leasing, including in areas that have not been offered for lease in nearly 40 years.
