The federal government’s outdated programs that lease public land for fossil fuel extraction are a subsidy for climate pollution, as has been noted before by green groups, think tanks, and Grist writers. Selling leases to mine coal or drill for oil or gas at below-market rates encourages more consumption of those fossil fuels by lowering their prices. That’s precisely the opposite of what we should be doing, of course, which is making fossil fuels more expensive to encourage a shift to cleaner alternatives.

Over the past year, climate activists have launched campaigns aimed at abolishing these fossil fuel leasing programs, or at least reforming them. Now Greenpeace is trying a new approach to that end: In a report called “Corporate Welfare for Coal,” released Thursday, the group calls out the corporate welfare kings by name. These aren’t ma-and-pa coal mining operations getting a helping hand from Uncle Sam. It’s the biggest coal companies in the country that are the most dependent on dirt-cheap federal coal.

“Three companies in particular dominate federal coal production: Peabody Energy, Arch Coal, and Cloud Peak Energy,” Greenpeace notes. “In part because of their access to subsidized federal coal, these companies have grown to become the three largest coal producers, accounting for about 40% of all the coal mined in the U.S. Federal coal accounted for 88% of Cloud Peak Energy’s total coal production, 83% of Arch Coal’s, and 68% of Peabody Energy’s total 2014 US coal production.” Even though the government keeps shoveling cheap coal into their coffers, declining demand, as utilities shift to natural gas and as renewables are rapidly deployed, has lead Arch to declare bankruptcy and Peabody to teeter on the brink.
