Dirt cheap coal poised to make a comeback

"A report by Aurora Energy Research has found that the carbon tax, which penalises dirtier coal more heavily than gas, has been “instrumental” in this change, along with cheap gas prices. However, it forecasts that coal plants could enjoy a revival in the early 2020s because coal is likely to become relatively cheaper than gas."
