This is the kind of thing MOST of the Buffalo & WNY citizens have been talking about. Every time that something, even remotely beneficial, appears to bring the area some asistance, some FOOLS have to dash the hopes.

I was thinking about getting rid of my high efficiency gas furnace and putting in one of those old coal burners. I know, that makes as much sense as the government doing it. Nuclear is the only way to go since hydro from the falls is too corrupt to benefit us.

Have YOU bothered to Read what was put out ? I see no where , where it says HILLARY had anything to do with SHUTTING this project down. and as for Funnyguy your rite anytime you have gov. getting involved the price goes p BIG TIME. BUT who else has the $$$$$$$$$$ to put into these kind of projects? WE MUST find some way to use COAL , we sit on the largest coal reserve in the world [ and a good chance the LARGEST OIL reserve bigger than all of the mid east] we just have to spend the $$$$$$ to find a way to get the oil out and burn the coal with out killing off everything else.

Typical, politicians full of hot air. Green tech doesn't bring in green $$$, didn't see that coming. Hillary bring jobs to WNY? I knew it was too good to be true.

I DO agree regarding the expanded use of our own resources coal, oil, et al while investigating energy alternatives. HOWEVER, I still say that anything "black widow" Hillary is involved with, in the end turns to S**T!(I.E. where are all of the promised JOBS here in WNY?) Sorry, got no use for her...

So the carbon dioxide was to be sequestered from the atmosphere. Sounds like nuns or something. Global warming hysteria killed it. You will be permitted to buy a carbon indulgence, to save your self and the planet form the gehenna fires of global warming. When this was done, indulgences in the Middle ages, it was laughed at. The Dems brought it back and called it science. All bow to the prophet Al Gre.

Nobody mentions the gunk we will be breathing and washing off our cars for years to come.
Thanks again, to the gullable media trotting out every time the shysters announce their new boondoggle.
