President Obama plans to ask the EPA to write tougher rules on coal-fired power plants.

This keeps up, they’ll have to write the next set of rules by candle light.

  1. The coal will be there forever. Right now we’re having a natural gas boom, to the point where we’re exporting the stuff. We could be using that here, and we should. It’s cleaner and better for all involved, with the exception, of course, of the mining industry, which is a mess as it is. Who the hell are you supporting here, anyway? What? Are you heavily vested in coal???

  2. The last I heard most of the US’s electricity came from coal. (See http://www.epri.com/Abstracts/Pages/ProductAbstract.aspx?ProductID=000000000001024951.)

    Coal is solid carbon (except for impurities like sulfur) so how in the Sam Hill do you lower the carbon dioxide production? (Well, carbon capture, and carbon credits; thanks EPRI

    I think I did hear something about some large scale natural gas power plants being built in California a few years ago, before bird choppers got popular.

  3. While it’s true that currently we have a lot of natural gas available, it’s also true that we have acquired a good portion of that gas through fracking, which the left and the environmentalists hate and despise and would like to get rid of just as much as they want to destroy the coal industry. So…once this administration has accomplished that, and they’re working on it…don’t look for this country to be awash in natural gas anymore.
