What are we doing with all that coal we aren't burning?

We're burning less coal in order to help the environment.  So where's it going?  We're exporting it.

Details here:  Obama for Carbon Power . . . in Africa
The irony is rich. While Obama’s EPA tries to eliminate America’s use of coal to fight global warming, the globe – Europe, China, India (soon Africa?) – is coming to America for its cheap coal reserves. In the last six years, American coal exports (including to Europe) have nearly tripled – negating Obama’s attempt to eliminate coal’s carbon emissions even as it deprives the U.S. of a competitive fuel.
Of course, that is the plan:

It's only the plan for the U.S., however.  Everybody else gets cheap energy from under our soil.
