    If only the low grade morons in the government would quit regulating us into economic ruin.

    Working in a coal mine is such great work, they sing songs about it…

    Coal is losing to natural gas because of economics, not regulations. Even if we tried to push coal burning for energy, modern automation means it’s never going to bring back the employment it once provided.

    I prefer to look to the future. Lisa Benson wants to bring back the past.

    Coal miners get black lung.
    At the EPA intelligence gets sucked into a black hole.

    Now that Liberals can’t show any negligable effect on climate with the proposed job killing coal taxes/regulations (and our air quality levels continue to improve), they are all parroting “Coal is losing to natural gas because of economics, not regulations.” Once they have crippled or killed the coal industry they will go back to trashing Natural Gas and the Koch Brothers.

    Harley, don’t forget that Obama believes the the other party is the “enemy”, being the great uniter that he is.

    Isn’t this special. Coal is used to produce over 50% of the energy we NEED in this country. So sure, let us close down 30% of those evil CO2 factories (well they produce other greenhouse gases too) and reduce the “supply” so that the “demand” will “necessarily skyrocket” prices.

    Surly we have acres of solar farms just waiting in the wings to provide all that energy we just sacrificed on the alter of global climate change.

    No…wait… we don’t.

    So who will suffer the most? Millionaire Obama? nope. Billionaire Buffet? Nope. How about the widow Franklin whose only source of income is a small stock portfolio and social security? HMMMMMM She has 5 med’s to pay for and happens to be in the doughnut hole now so for the next 3 months those cost her 372 bucks. As much as the Feds deny it, the cost of living AKA FOOD has gone up a bunch and now her 100 dollar month electric bill just increased to 200 a month and guess what she heats her house with…..

    Selfish jerks insisting on the right to breathe and drink water! What about the rights of coal miners to face death and disease for inadequate pay for the profit of mine owners? Think of the miners! Why, they’d have to get another job! Don’t think of the owners behind the curtain, though. Pay no attention.

    When the administration cares more about social engineering than the nation, this is what we get.

    Coal is a finite resource.
    Over one hundred coal mines have closed over the last one hundred years.
    Harvesting and burning coal is, itself, a war on coal.
    In addition to the damage done to the air by burning coal, to water by coal sludge leaking into ground water or into rivers, and to the landscape where mountains are stripmined into parking lots in order to harvest coal, there are proven health risks to children, born and unborn, who live down wind and down stream from coal plants.
    West Virginia is a beautiful state and with forward thinking land management and educated planning, it could convert all of the coal jobs into less dangerous technologies/industries.
    Coal is doomed.
    Whether from becoming an archaic form of energy creation, or from being mined to extinction, coal is going to be gone if we continue to use it as we do.
    If you drive down I-664 in Virginia, at the point where the interstate comes to the Hampton Bay, there is a coal loading terminal. It’s huge with ships waiting in line to take the coal overseas. Tens of thousands of gallons of water are sprayed on the coal in order to limit the amount of coal ash that the wind carries to nearby neighborhoods where houses are dusted by fine black particles of coal dust. Right next to the coal yard is the James River and Hampton Bay, rich fishing and crabbing grounds. If rains are too heavy, or a hurricane hits, coal dust and sludge get carried into the river, and from there, into the food chain. Thousands of rail cars come down from Richmond, Va. to the coal yard and if you walk along the tracks, you can see black dust on the granite stone, black dust that gets washed into the ditches and from the ditches to the river.
    Coal has been a great tool to get mankind to this point in history. Like wood, charcoal, oil, natural gas, and uranium, hydro electric, wind, and solar,coal has had an important role in our society; but like wood and charcoal, it is time to lean more heavily on more modern and more renewable sources of energy. Failing to do so will simply make the coal vanish from earth that much faster.

    The only kind of science the EPA does is science fiction.

    They’re all things that Harley hates, so anyone who disagrees with him is obviously all of them.
