More bad news for Wyoming coal: The Coal Creek coal mine in the Powder River Basin just announced it is shuttering. The blow follows closely on the heels of the Decker mine halting operations.

Wyoming’s national response simply cannot be that we are going to continue to fight for every Wyoming job but then do nothing except blame the decades-in-the-making decline of our coal industry on the three-week-old Biden administration. That is an unrealistic political talking point at a time we would be better off focusing on the urgency and gravity of our situation.
