ABSTRACT
When U.S. President George W. Bush was inaugurated in January 2001, the coal industry was battling a series of regulatory efforts that, taken together, threatened to make the dirtiest fossil fuel economically unviable. Less than three years later, coal is once again king. The president has done more to advance the interests of coal than for any other sector of the energy industry. Prior to his election, coal was the primary target for a four-pollutant approach for federal regulation of old power plants. The trend towards greater regulation of coal - and reducing the nation's dependence on it - was well established until George W. Bush stepped into office.
