    Let’s see…Jobs or Cancer? Seems we know where Payne’s priorities lie.

    The cancer caused by the coal industry also supports the health care industry, which is currently paying Congress to fight against universal health care. So, Payne’s priorities are with Congress, I guess making him a patriot.

    Coal got killed by Natural Gas!
    .
    Coal can’t compete with the cost per BTU of Natural gas.
    .
    Blaming the coal industries demise on the EPA is just echo from the coal industry that doesn’t want to admit that their time has passed.
    .
    We don’t use kerosene to light our homes any more either. Is that EPA’s fault or electricity’s?

    Sorry they were the first hybrids. Electrical motor batteries powered by a diesel.

    How about the underground, decades old coal fires?

    I don’t think even Santa Claus leaves coal anymore. I’m pretty sure he’s substituted Hot Topic gift cards.

    May I re-interpret? It makes little sense to ruin the planet for yourself and future generations for a short-term monetary gain.

    Or….it’s unwise to live for now and disregard future consequences.

    Not dem. Not so sure it’s lib. But it is logic.

    We are supposed to be the keepers of the earth, instead we are facing the sixth extension.

    Actually, The Southern Company is using an old depleted oil well to capture the C02 from one of their coal fired electric plants.

    Anyone stop to realize how many thousands of jobs in “coal” were lost to machines in underground mines, open pit and strip mining, and mountain top removal practices? Production and profits kept going up, and employment kept going down, THAT is the real story of “coal jobs”.

    @coraryan

    First off, In the North east, where our mountain lakes and forests are being killed by the acid rain from Ohio’s power plants, No, I don’t give much of a “#$%@”!
    .
    Secondly, where did I call for the closing of your coal fired plants? I just said that there ARE carbon capture programs (That the CEO of The Southern Company implores Congress to mandate) and that at least one of them uses a depleted oil well as the repository for the captured carbon dioxide.
    .
    But, for you, I’ll opine that the less electricity that you waste (by posting disconstrued messages on an electronic message board, just for an example), the better it is for all of us who are forced to deal with your smoke and mirrors.
