THE MARKETS FOR COAL

This paper quotes several forecasts for significant increases in coal markets by 1985. Time will be required to open the mines and time will be required to increase the railroad transportation capacity. Coal in the past has lost markets to oil for reasons of price and air pollution. In addition to time money will be required. Nuclear power has been slow in coming, and money is needed for coal research to close the gap.
