There will be a cost.   There are 200K workers in coal,do you think they will all find equivalent jobs in their towns after coal is gone ?

No I don't think so.
But the renewables industry will be ramping up so there will be opportunities there. Their towns can make some efforts to get in on the massive rollout of renewable energy that will create lots of jobs.
The subsidies can help if used for retraining.
Towns that are not trying to attract renewable energy projects and related retraining have their heads buried in the coal sludge.
