The irony of that process (and modernization in the power grid) is that more coal-fired plants have been decomissioned over the last 2 years than 8 years of the Obama admin. And that is undeniably a good thing (sorry, coal miners...).

The typical power plant burns a rail car full of coal in ~45 min, and generates more than one rail car full of ash and waste, not to mention the tons of CO2 generated. Coal needs to be phased out entirely.
