I heard as part of his war on coal, he was going to round up all the coal supporters and put them in FEMA camps.

Lunatic fringe elements from which he came .Damn.

I believe the coal and electric company's have an obligation to produce a safe and clean product.To reduce gases that would increase global warming. Once the world reaches a point of no return,then the whiners will have something to really cry about. Nobody wants to loose these jobs

Seems funnie electric company's in other areas are up grading their equip.Ohio Edison has had since the passage of the clean air act in the 90's to do such but has chosen to close several plants instead,

Truth i thinkl Gitmo would be better !

I have to give congress credit for doing something this week.

They passed leg.to open up more drilling area in the gulf,This will add to the 5400 permits not being utilized now, and the millions of miles left un touched,

Last week it was abortion and the week before they repealed Obamacare for the 37th time.

We;ll see them after the 4th.

I was going to say I can't believe they publish such lunatic fringe, idiotic opinion pieces. Then I remembered both the owner of the paper conglomerate and the readership fit said bill. Carry on.

Yes, having concern for blue collar families that depend on the coal industry for work is pretty far out there, isn't it? Maybe we are jumping the gun and we shouldn't just assume that his highness has not already developed a solid plan to transition those families to a more environmentally friendly form of employment. Please, go on and explain that plan.

"I believe the coal and electric company's have an obligation to produce a safe and clean product."

They already do.

"To reduce gases that would increase global warming."

If you haven't been following the news, both the GRU and NASA have admitted they are wrong, their methods are flawed, their computer models are innacurate, that CO2 isn't the problem, and the Earth hasn't warmed for the last 17 years.

Yet you and Obumba STILL want to shut down clean coal plants.

What are you going to replace them with? What are we going to use for power while the replacements are being built?

The US has done better at reducing air pollution than ANY of the countries that signed on to Kyoto.

But that's not good enough for the radical Left.

If you weren't in the tank for Obumba, you might see the truth. Fat chance though, huh?

Easier to insult all of us instead of engaging the brain and actually thinking, huh?

If you hate this papare so badly, why do you read it? Better off at Huffington-Puffington Post.

One NS your entitled to your opion on global warming.

Records suggest differently.

Second .You replace them wtih gas fired units,nuclear power or install scrubbers to clean coal.

While re[placements are being built.

Do you wait until the roof on your house is totally gone before replacing it ?

The clean air act was passed in the 90's allowing plenty of time to chose and produce a plan.

They attribute most of the rise to the greenhouse effect,

Consisting of many different gases,

Now like most we can continue to bury our heads in the sand and call the people whose trying to slow or prevent names like highness

I think just the extreme weather ,fires and other conditions wake some people up.

But then if it happens we can always go back and blame Obumer.

Doesn't seem to bother you that our manufactoring base has dropped from 26% to 11%.

That everything made in this country is now made overseas. in places like Bangl. where the avg, hrly. wage is .21/hr or China at $2.39/hr and they lock their employees in the bldg.

"One NS your entitled to your opion on global warming. "

It's not my opinion, bug, it is what THEY said.

"Records suggest differently. "

No. they don't. The records PROVE the Earth has not warmed for the last 17 years.

"Second .You replace them wtih gas fired units,nuclear power or install scrubbers to clean coal. "

All the coal plants already have the scrubbers.

And do you really think your allies on the hard left will allow a nuke plant to be built?

As far as gas-fired plants, what do you think that will do to gas prices? They are already heading up, and fast.

That doesn't even make sense. A roof can be replaced in a couple days, it takes YEARS to build a plant.

In the '70s we were all going to die because scientists said we were going to enter a mini ice age.

Oops!

Next it was 'global warming', a scam dreamed up to take our money and give it to poor countries.

As the evidence mounted against warming, now it is 'climate change', and everything from drought to rain blamed on it.

Do you really believe them?

Here's a little mental exercise. Think real hard, now.

A scientist studying 'global warming' finds evidence that 'global warming' is not happening, and reports his findings. What happens to his grant money?
