Rich Trzupek: Real Energy Expert Destroys John Oliver’s Ignorant, Profanity-Laced Rant About Coal

Last month, HBO funnyman John Oliver spent an episode of his show “Last Week Tonight” delivering a profanity-laced rant demonizing coal, coal-energy advocates, and presidents of the United States who don coal-miner hard-hats.
