Coal Industry Emissions Reduction
Of the 328,720 megawatts of coal-fired capacity reporting their control technologies to the Energy Information Administration in 2005, 48 percent (158,493 megawatts) have cooling towers, 31 percent (101,338 megawatts) have flue gas desulfurization equipment (scrubbers), and 100 percent have particulate collectors.[x]
The following graph compares the SO2 and NOx emissions from coal-fired power plants divided by the fuel consumed by these plants from 1970 to 2006. Between 1970 and 2006, SO2 emissions in lbs per million Btu were reduced by almost 80 percent and NOx emissions in lbs per million Btu were reduced by over 70 percent. Between 1970 and 2006, total SO2 emissions were reduced by about 40 percent. Between 1980 and 2006, NOx emissions were reduced by almost 50 percent.
The Magic Negro is a Marxist/Socialist hot on the trail toward absolute government control of American Society. This, of course, includes controlling all aspects of Energy Production. Private Ownership or Free Enterprise is a joke to them inside their dark room meetings.

Magic Negro Tactic: Create an Enemy and then show the voters how you are attacking that enemy. Coal is your enemy. Oil is your enemy. Follow me and I will lead you to the Promised Land.

"Results from this latest assessment indicate that although coal plant emissions of key particle-forming pollutants like sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) have declined significantly over the last several years, existing plants remain among the top contributors to fine particle pollution in the United States. As a result, their emissions continue to take a significant toll on the health and longevity of millions of Americans."

Then let the companies build other types of plants, moron. Last week, you were dissing Natural Gas while Democrats were praising it.

Rick Scott is close to allowing the Medicaid expansion. I thought he didn't meet the deadline?
"There isn't a deadline for Medicaid expansion: States can accept the additional funding at any time. The 100 percent federal funding for it, however, only lasts through 2016. After that it starts slowly phasing down the match until 2020 (and for all subsequent years), when it will pay 90 percent of the costs of covering these individuals.

Because the money can be accepted at any time, those governors who refused it for this year will likely be facing increased political pressure in the next few years, both as they see how it works in neighboring states, and as local hospitals and providers continue to be unnecessarily strained in providing care to low-income people."

Do your part to solve the pollution problem. Shut off your computer, stop typing and turn off all the CB's in your Electrical Panel.

The Magic Negro will be proud of you.

He might even award you a Presidential Medal Of Honor.
