Hasn't Britain run out of Anthracite coal?
What about all the funding for miner pensions, reeducation, and subsidence remediation and compensation? Doesn't that come from coal income, like it does here in the US?

There are no deep mines left but there is billions of tons left thats just Northumberland, there are loads of open cast mines what you ¿call strip mining i think.
The pensions and subsidence is still covered by British coal what used to called the Coal Board, sort of government owned and owns quite a lot of land for income.
Reeducation, once a miner always a miner, some went abroad some went to potash mines and salt mines, a lot just got benefits and crappy jobs.
The odd old shaft opens up quite often over here, some over three hundred years old

Over here, under FDR, was started a pension/retirement system funded by the coal companies. Then under LBJ, it got put 'on budget', but still funded by the companies and unions. Worked for decades, till the environmentalist, under Clinton and Obama, started shutting down the coal mine, and the private money stopped. So now we tax payers are paying less than 70% of what the pension use to be.
I know this for a fact!

Billions of tonnes of coal under our feet, it's just not economically or ecologically viable to mine or use anymore...but for the future, we have a massive reserve power supply if we get in the shit.

I know this for a fact!
The old Coal Board,NCB pension was one of the better funded ones until the government decided to use it as a cash cow
Its all a bloody mess.
