Shipments of coal to U.S. power plants in 2020 fell 22% year-over-year, according to data released May 13 by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). The agency said the U.S. power sector received 428 million short tons (MMst) of coal last year, the lowest amount since the EIA began publishing shipment data in 2007.

Coal is toast, so to speak. The miners will find new jobs in the solar and wind generation industries. As a benefit, they will actually be able to se the sun while they work. I hope that in a very few years we will wonder why it took so long.
