The U.S. coal industry has struggled to keep up with the demand for the fuels, and the industry has largely relied on the federal government for its funding.
In 2018, President Donald Trump announced that he was withdrawing $1.3 billion in federal funds that the coal industry had received for its production.
The coal industry is expected to receive another $2 billion in 2018.
However, the withdrawal is a far cry from the billions of dollars that the industry had hoped for.
A new report from the Environmental Working Group found that the US has the third largest coal plant in the world, behind China and Japan.
In total, the US currently has 6,919 coal plants operating, the EWP found.
The coal industry was able to expand its coal plants after the 2008 financial crisis by securing federal loans and grants, which meant that it was able pay its bills with the money that it had received from the federal Treasury.
However, the coal boom did not last for long.
According to the EWEG report, coal production in the United States declined from the peak in 2011 to 2016, and coal production has since declined again.
In 2016, the U.N. Environment Program found that coal production was down to the lowest level in the history of the planet.
At the time, it was estimated that the U,S.
had 3,500 coal plants.
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that coal will be produced by 2020.
