Is Obama Going to End Coal?

Is Obama going to end the use of coal?  It’s very possible, if you take a look at the following, from the Independent Sentinel… Obama is at war with fossil fuels and his first key battle is against coal, which provides 45% of the electricity in the United States. Obama has succeeded at making it impossible to build new coal plants and he is about to close existing plants. Last year the EPA passed stringent carbon emissions standards on coal plants that prevented the building of any new coal-fired facilities in the United States. Some of the worst rules, delayed until […]

Obama’s Second Term EPA to Destroy Coal Industry

Apparently, the Obama Administration is holding back on announcing new regulations, especially from the EPA.  It would seem that the Administration does not want prospective voters knowing what the EPA will be up to.  However, Freedom Works has some relevant information… First, an October report from Republican Sen. James Inhofe indicated that the EPA specifically “punted” on numerous regulations in an attempt to “earn votes” for a second term.   … Then, the administration illegally failed to meet a deadline for releasing regulatory plans for the coming year, a move which prompted Inhofe to release the following statement: “President Obama is refusing to comply with the law that requires him to publish forthcoming regulations because he doesn’t […]

It’s Not Easy Being Green: Green Cars Cause More Pollution!

When it comes to green cars, I feel obligated to invoke Quinn’s First Law… “Liberalism always generates the exact opposite of it’s stated intent.” You can’t argue it.  The “war on poverty” caused more poverty.  Since the onset of the Department of Education, education has gotten worse.  I could go on all day, but you get the point.  Liberals state that they are going to make something better, and instead make it worse.  Then, they blame us for their failure.  Here is the latest; green cars cause more pollution!  The Lonely Conservative has more… The Daily Caller reported that a new study by […]

Mine Union Boss Suddenly Realizes that Obama Wants to Kill Coal: Amazement Ensues

Conservatives have known that Obama has it in for all things coal.  We know this because he’s said so-no prophesy or divination required! However, it seems that quite a few people didn’t pay attention to what candidate Obama was saying.  Case in point, Cecil Roberts, boss of bosses of the United Mine Workers.  Apparently, Cecil just now realized that Obama is going to put a lot of his “constituents” out of work… The coal industry will suffer the same fate as Osama bin Laden under new climate regulations proposed by the Environmental Protection Agency, the head of the United Mine […]

Latest EPA Rules to Cost 1.4 Million Jobs and a 12% Increase in Utility Bills

global warming hoax

The good thing about having a record is being able to run on it, and I have a track record of posts on my blog that make Obama pretty jealous. In November of 2008 I pointed to an interview that Obama gave where he said that as part of his ‘green energy’ policies he intended to use the power of the federal government to bankrupt all coal producers in the United States. As I quite accurately wrote: Obama is telling anyone that uses any energy at all that he intends to drive up the price of it. Combine this with his […]

Green Energy Is Burning Up Your Green $$$

Obama’s insane energy policy is burning a hole through the American’s family budget. At the same time, our government is burning through our tax dollars while putting our future generations deeper and deeper in debt. How are Americans reacting to this insanity? That I can tell, there is almost no reaction from Main Street America. The reason, I think, is obvious.  The average American is being battered about like a ball in a pin ball machine by the multitude of negative impacts their government’s policies are having on them. It is almost impossible for anyone to focus on one bad policy long enough […]

End All Energy Production?

On Wednesday, August 6, 2008 I wrote: As I listened to Obama talk about his energy visions for the future, I imagined what it would be like to live in a world that is cured of it’s oil addiction- a world where there is no power generated by fossil fuels, and instead water and wind power the world. Ahh, indeed- the change we need… windmill from ancient Rhodes, waterwheel from Roman Spain… After two years of an Obama Presidency and Democrats in Congress, it appears that the world’s chief sources of large-scale energy production — coal, oil and nuclear power — […]
