tRUMP is just humoring his ignorant base:

Environmentalists and energy experts contacted by Yahoo News for this article roundly criticized the department’s interest in new coal plants as misguided, a waste of time if not yet of money. “The construction of any new coal power plants, modular or otherwise, is insane,” says Michael Hendryx Smith, a public health expert at Indiana University-Bloomington who has written extensively about the hazards of the coal industry. “Climate change is a huge problem, coal reserves are in decline, natural gas and other fuel sources are economically superior. This is more stupidity from the current administration and another effort to support business interests over the well-being of the human race.”

So "Public health" is yet another variation on the spelling
of "Man Made Global Warming Caused By Fossil Fuels Which Are
Running Out Anyway"....

Coal is the dirtiest, of course, but it's in greater supply
than oil. Coal will be used. It's just a question of how or
when.
