This article provides an overview of the World Coal Study report Coal--Bridge to the Future. Putting figures to the proposition that there is a great deal of coal in the world that can be produced at reasonable prices if big enough investments are made, this study concludes, with cautious optimism, that if the right steps are taken a tripling of coal consumption can be the bridge to a future when new sources of energy take over.
