They'll find other industries to work in, or not. Energy will still be needed, even if it doesn't come from coal. That's just the way things go. Keeping antiquated and toxic industries around just to give work to people who are too stupid to adapt amounts to ... welfare!
Should we have kept the PCB transformer oil, dioxin-containing pesticide, and asbestos mining industries around for the same reason?
