Something Missing, Barack?

On the Obama campaign website, there's a graphic depicting the president's "all-of-the-above" energy plan. I've captured it to post here to head off the inevitable alterations. According to the page:

President Obama has a real strategy to take control of our energy future and finally reduce our dependence on foreign oil—an all-of-the-above approach to developing all our energy resources.

Notice anything missing?

The Institute for Energy Research says that coal provides 21% of US energy, and nearly half of all our electricity. The United States has 29% of the world's known coal reserves, enough to last 250 years: We're rich with the stuff, and we know where it is, and it's cheap. But coal doesn't rate even a mention in Obama's official energy plan? How "real" can his so-called "all-of-the-above" plan be if it leaves out half of our electric generation?
