Well from the look of your original story.. you could have been saved if you just disabled refining. The problem was, making the diamond (during refining) used a lot of your Coal, down to your firepower limit I guess.
You know the order production happens in. The refining happens, your Coal drops, finishes. The Factory phase starts.. you don't have the Coal to power the process.
A lot of these problems could be solved if I could just make all the numbers used in production available, in some kind of awesome spreadsheet, but.. jeeze, that's kind of a pain.
I am planning to put in the level of refining option.
JC's Greenhouse not using fuel.. maybe you grew the Food without the Greenhouse? Maybe it was powered by something else?
The production/refining code is not a pretty set of algebra, and I don't like to delve into it unless I'm more sure there's a problem. Is something definitely not working the way it's stated in the Documentation?
Yeah, I know it was my own darned fault and if I had paid closer attention I wouldn't be in this mess. I'm just saying it was frustrating, wanted to issue a warning to all other coal miners out there, and blow off a little steam. (I'm not looking for a handout *cough* nanich *cough* )
