@Jo Nova: Like Prohib­ition is to Moons­hine, Green dives­tment activists are a boon for coal investors

When wowsers banned alcohol in the US, the price of beer rose seven­fold.

Dives­tment shrinks capital inflow to coal mines, so there are fewer new mines, and less coal avail­able. But people still want just as much coal as they ever did, so the price…
