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Last week it was abortion and the week before they repealed Obamacare for the 37th time.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

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.

And like everything else i'm sure we could both find scientists who dis-agree with the scientists,

They say ocean levels are increasing faster than predicted.Sorry i didn't run over and measure them.

Storms are more frequent and violent. More fire and more frequent.

Again your entitled to your opinion. Me i'd rather be save than sorry.

26% to 11% Has all to do with it. Thank your unions .Wrong again ,Just as many where non-union.

I guess more people have to be like you.Work for nothing,Get nothing out of life but the bare minimum.Is this how capitalism works/

All for one ,nothing for the rest of us

These plants lost in Salem where all good paying jobs and company's all made good profits until the big chesse's found out they could get the work done for nothing,In slave labor conditions,and no benefits.

Even the chinese are starting to catch onto the American greed,

Asking for better wages and benefits. Watch the AH flock back home or find some other cheap coutry to take advantage of.

All our social system benefits are based on income Half of Salem qualifies.

So you complain when they get and you complain when they try to uplift themselves.

Sounds a little confusing.Can't have iy both ways.

All the coal plants have scrubbers/

I thought this process was used during the burning process at the power plants

Gas prices are already rising .Gee thats amazing,Guess what. Their already starting to export it too.That should lower the price,Just like gasoline on the open market lowered it .

"The only one off track is you."

You made 13 posts that have nothing to do with answering my question since my last post in which I asked the question. This is your big opportunity to show us that we just jump to conclusions when it comes to Obama. You can shut us all up by just laying out the plan Obama has to transition these blue collar workers. Surely, the great Democrat and savior of the working class would not write these people off as expendable. What's the plan?
