Title

The development of a coal material flow analysis, indicators, and models to facilitate the creation of public policy

Abstract

"The primary incentive for this study was a lack of integrative tools for policymakers to use to assemble a complete picture of coal's effect on the economy, environment, and society. The goals of this dissertation are to modify and update a Material Flow Account created in the 1990s; to create a tools set that includes indicators, models, and a method of prioritization that the public, industry, and government can use to make sound policy decisions; and to show the big picture of coal. The last part of this dissertation identifies and demonstrates a tool that would allow scenarios to be played out regarding public policy decisions and their effects on the coal industry, the economy, environemt, and society"--Abstract, leaf iii.
