Vistra CEO is all over the news lately, giving a bunch of interviews after the company shut down its coal-fired plant in Texas and started investing in solar. CEO is saying that coal isn't coming back and can't compete, not first and foremost with renewables, but with nat gas. But Vistra's shift is working. Investors like it. Stock is up a lost year-on-year and still trending upwards.
um.... imost laws/acts/bills on the books are pre-1950 including our constitution. Some have been amended over time, including this one. The date of the act itself is not a reflection of its necessity. Argue for coal's life or against it, but not that the President is threatening to use an Act that grants him a privilege that every administration has--and not by negligence--maintained.
