“Like in India, the majority of the energy in the US is generated from the burning of coal.  Furthermore, coal supply issues are of increasing concern in the US as the much-touted “200 years of available coal” is proving to be highly implausible and the planning horizon for moving beyond coal could be as short as 20-30 years in the US.  Clean Energy Action’s coal report
