The United States has the world's largest coal reserves, with 22 mines operating in the cowboy state alone. That count makes Wyoming the country's largest coal producer by a wide margin. 
 
However, tough new regulations on pollution from coal fired power plants have caused many to claim that the Obama administration is leading a "war on coal." 
 
As K2's Jeff Schuman reports, the future of coal was the hot topic at the first day of the annual Wyoming Forum in Cheyenne.
