The battle for the future of American energy is heating up in the coal industry.
As we’ve reported, a federal judge ruled that companies could continue to sell coal-derived cleaning products, and they were allowed to continue selling products containing coal.
The case was brought by the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy.
The Alliance filed a brief on the issue with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in Washington, D.C. The court’s opinion, filed by the Alliance and its attorneys, said that the companies were violating federal environmental law by selling the cleaning products without a permit and that their actions were an “instrument of coercion and abuse.”
The court also said that these companies were “misusing their monopoly power” and “using it to impose on the American public the most harmful form of pollution: coal.”
Coal companies like Appalachian Energy, which supplies the coal used in the Clean Power Plan, have argued that the Clean Water Act does not apply to the sale of coal products.
The companies say that it would be unconstitutional for the Clean Air Act to apply to such products.
However, a ruling from the court on the Clean Coal and Energy Act would likely mean that companies like coal companies could still use the Clean Gas and Electricity Act to sell their products.
And the court may not be the last place that we’ll see the issue of coal pollution come up.
The Natural Resources Action Council, a Washington-based environmental group, is also challenging the Clean Energy Act.
The coalition has filed a lawsuit against the EPA over the Clean Food and Drug Act and the Clean Defense Act.
This week, the EPA asked the Supreme Court to rule on the lawsuit.
It’s not clear whether or not the court will decide the case.
But this week’s decision could set a new precedent for the coal and gas industry.
Coal companies could have an even bigger battle on their hands in the future, as the coal-producing states of North Dakota, Wyoming, Montana and West Virginia have begun to implement stricter environmental regulations for coal production.
The coal industry has been battling the EPA and the states over its greenhouse gas emissions for decades.
And they’re still fighting.
The EPA and states are now going after the coal companies that produce coal to cut down on greenhouse gas pollution.
The Clean Coal Act, which was passed in 2008, requires the EPA to develop a plan to regulate the greenhouse gas released from the coal mines.
But the coal producers say they are still not able to comply with the Clean Steel Act, a rule that requires the coal plants to cut back on greenhouse gases emissions.
The lawsuit against coal companies has been going on for years.
In 2014, the Alliance filed the lawsuit to block the coal plant closures in Pennsylvania.
The lawsuits filed by coal companies are not the first ones that have challenged the Clean Health and Safety Act.
In February, the Natural Resource Defense Council filed a similar lawsuit on behalf of the Alliance against the federal Clean Air and Clean Water Acts.
