Obama and the Democrats for the ‘little guy’? Really? The use of coal in the generating of electrical power inside the US is enormous, but that hasn’t stopped the present Obama regime from inventing new regulations meant to deplete electricity from the existing power grid, let alone any future expansion of it. It’s all designed to cripple the US economy, so by default Obama is saying, damn the little guy and his family, as well as the unions in the coal industry. KGS
(Washington Examiner) — President Obama’s cap-and-trade bill died in the Democrat-run 111th Congress, but that hasn’t stopped the chief executive and Lisa Jackson, his U.S. Environmental Protection Agency administrator, from finding regulatory paths to achieve the same goals.
Topping those goals is the abolition of coal as an electrical power-generating fuel. More than half of the electrical power used every day by Americans is generated by power plants fueled by coal. And 90 percent of all the coal consumed in the U.S. goes to electrical power generation.
But that doesn’t matter to Obama and Big Green, they are determined to kill the coal industry because of its alleged contribution to global warming.
