Coal In Appalachia: How Much is Left?

The U.S. Geological Survey has published its new National Coal Resource Assessment Overview, which projected that Appalachia will reach “peak coal” in perhaps about 10 years â?? by 2020, according to Coal Tattoo. Peak coal is the point where the maximum rate of production is reached, after which the rate of production enters terminal decline.
