    Well, they’ve been good a providing a pretty good fog for a long time, spontaneous combustion in that pile next to the bull pen.

    Once again King Barry dismisses Congress and forces this predictably horrible law on Americans.
    Ya 500,000 people laid off their jobs and the average family will pay over $1000 more a year on electricity. Great!
    As if he hasn’t made things horrible enough on average American families the last 5 years.

    - Exactly as this is supposed to be done; ignore the denialists, and plow on through.

    - Last Sunday’s episode of Cosmos had a great model for the fossil fuel-free future.

    The experts all agree that the cost will be $523 billion annually and Obama’s new regulations will destroy the US economy.

    …and we will need a stronger economy to dig deeper holes to live in. Money is Life

    I wonder how those coal miners in appalachia will feed their families now that Obama has destroyed their livliehood with the stroke of his pen?

    And I sure am looking forward to seeing the boost in my utility bill so that he can curry favor with the econuts.

    Hang in there America. We only have to tolerate this doofus for another 2.5 years

    Don’t forget the cork for the mouth of the denialist.

    Tom I presume you and your ilk are ready to go back to horse and buggy days and kerosene lamps. Of course with limited electricity maybe kerosene will be in short supply. No worry though we can still fall back on tallow dips, i.e. candles. You see we were scared spitless by TMI and so the greatest percentage of our electricity is coal generated, but go ahead and prove once and for everyone to see just how regressive the liberal left is in this country.

    God forbid we should do anything that would hurt the billionaire Texas oil and gas constituency. However there is a bright spot of bipartisanship here. Liberals like to see high oil and gas prices because it pushes the green agenda, conservatives love it because they can raise gas and oil prices as much as they want. Obama doesn’t drive gas prices, Texas good old boys do!

    You can’t keep suckkng off the future, because eventually, there ain’t no future left. As with any extraction industry, the end comes sooner of later. Look at all the ghost towns in the west. Alternative to keeping Apalachian jobs would be new jobs in clean energy, or let them keep mining until we can move them all to the coast to build dikes.

    I’ve noticed that many folks here rarely read the helpful links provided by others.
    This could be for safety reasons since it is easy to link to unhelpful virus-laden trap sites, in which case simply hover your mouse above the link to read the url; or people really don’t care to read too much.
    That’s why Michael gets so many flies. It’s all just honey for many (instead of detecting the poisonous barbs)

    It’s touching that so many here would rather see the air get worse and worse rather than impact oil company profits. If an alternate source of power is used, it will take people to run (and therefore will create jobs).
    Westfield, MA, used to be the buggy whip capital of the world. Darn shame it’s not any more, but the town seems to be gradually pulling itself together. It’s possible.
