— by on February 9th, 2016

Jim Casey, associate professor of economics at Washington and Lee University, co-authored a Feb. 5 opinion piece, “A path forward for Coal Country,” with Jeremy Richardson, senior energy analyst at the Union of Concerned Scientists, in the Bristol Herald-Courier. In the piece, the two argue that the market for coal is waning, and that “we must find pragmatic energy solutions that can help the southwest region transition to a future without coal.”
