Like I said no one cares about what you have to say we all think your a dumbass for even posting shit like you came up with it your self your probably so damn stupid you have to print off the info just so you can re type it on here !!! Anyway your a loser u know it so get over it!!!'n
Let us clarify some things (like your second sentence for example). What the hell are you trying to spit out through that trash trough attached to your face? You weren't capable of paying for your own college so you had to marry a coal miner and use him. That's pathetic! As a male with no children, I don't draw any kind of gov't check. Also, not all grants are income based; there are thousands of them out there, but you were just too LAZY to even look for them lol. What about scholarships? Were you too dumb to qualify for any of those? I don't "make up" anything I post on here, but I do paraphrase news sources that I read. Btw, what kind of degree do you have? Based on your inability to form a coherent argument and your deplorable syntax, I bet it's a great degree ;).

These idiots want to bash our hard working men bc they bust their a$$ everyday for good money and all these low life's do is sit at home and get money from the government to pay for their food,rent,water ,electricity and so on!! God will bring these fools down for wishing harm on ppl..I strongly believe that if you hate coal you hate God bc he put it here for a reason...reason being so that men and woman who can't afford to go to college can work and support their families!
God also gave us nuclear energy, solar,wind, and hydro power did he make that for the uneducated ones to miners wife!!

Explain to me why, if windmill energy is the next big thing of energy's future, nearly every European country that has implemented it has had horrible results and it resulted it outrageous electric bills. Explain to me why, if solar energy is the next big thing of energy's future, that at least 17 of the companies Obama supported at the taxpayers' expense of BILLIONS have all gone belly up. Explain it to me. Explain why China may be spending shit tons of money on finding the perfect renewable energy, but are increasing coal usage more than any other country in the world due to electricity demand there, and are projected to continue increasing coal use 20 percent over the next two decades. Explain to me how many windmills would be needed to support a city of one million people and their homes, businesses and factories or can you even realize the number that would be? Explain to me where your brilliant fucking plan of putting windmills and solar panels would be at in mountainous areas, and how they will convince the landowners and leasers commonly referred to as coal companies to allow a competing energy source use their land to plant shitty windmills. Explain to me how dependable those would be in states like Kentucky, and don't forget about the study that's already been completed years ago saying that isn't even a feasible source for serious consideration here. Explain to me who is going to pay 200,000 per fucking house to make it solar ready when this term of Obama's is already the historically acclaimed FOOD STAMP era. You are just fucking brilliantly stupid if you think the world is prepared to convert to a full green scale of energy. No one has invented anything even remotely close to sustaining the world's energy use outside of coal and oil. Maybe in the next few hundred years, but not today dumbass, and if you believe otherwise, you are as fucking brainwashed and delusional as your treehugging faggot friends.

Your info is ancient. The wind industry in Europe has grown by 15% annually over the past 17 years. We have a lot of coastlines in this country to set up off shore wind farms for our larger coastal cities. Solar panels are much cheaper now up front too, and will be cheaper in the long run. We also have huge potential for solar energy. Electricity produced by solar PV panels will be cheaper than coal per mWh in this decade. Look into the DoE's Sunshot Initiative, and look at the new PV panels. You are years behind 2012, which mine shaft did you just crawl out of? If you think coal is the future, you are as fucking brainwashed and delusional as your coaltard, faggot, hand-holding friends. Tell us the truth though, will you be holding the hand or "leg" of your buddy?

Guy, you only see the color green and renewable energy will one day be required and not just the option we have today. What you miserably fucking fail at doing though, is realizing that even the experts in your windmill promotion gimmick understand that it is not cost effective. You did not explain how windmills will be able to provide power to states not on a coastal shoreline or smooth, flat ground. You failed to disclose, through your brilliant couch research how much land and how many turbines would be needed. So the sight of mountains that have been strip mined burns your eyeballs? Explain to me where wind turbines would be located and the maintenance required of the land around them? At least with strip mining, they replant. Wind turbines mean forever bare, and the flatter the land the better. A windmill has to turn AT fucking least 10 mph to generate power. AT LEAST TEN. Now let me fill you in on something you can research for yourself. The highest wind average in Kentucky is found near Fayette, Bourbon and Scott Counties. The average in these WINDY places? 6.5 Six point fucking five, not even enough to TURN THE FUCKER ON during your average day. If you want wind power, moron, you better be moving out of Kentucky because that shit literally won't FLY here. So now what, you will just put solar panels all over your GD house and property, amiright? First, you need to move out of the fucking projects and get a job that will buy you a piece of land and house, then install the basic $10,400 solar package. If your average electric bill was about $100, then it's only going to take 9 fucking years to pay for itself, and with the warranty on them less than that, it should be about time to buy a brand new one by then. So you go ahead with your plans and while the rest of us don't worry about how much wind is forecasted, or how sunny it will be during storms, winter and during the night, we will sit back and watch your brilliant fucking plan turn into watching the weather channel for wind and sun reports. You didn't explain where the wind turbines and all these solar panels would be placed, or why your hero Obama wasn't held accountable for blowing BILLIONS wen he gave his buddies the money of the taxpayers to run his green energy that fucking went broke. You probably think that was a good investment, knowing your nanomite brain capacity for intelligent reasoning. The best electricity, the most dependable electricity isn't found blowing through your hair or beaming on your ugly ass face, idiot. It's found underground, that's where the light bulb is but you won't ever realize that since you spend your days playing hippy and singing kumbaya with your faggot friends.

Someday, tree humper, but that day is not today or tomorrow or your lifetime. Count on that.

You can't shut me up lol. I told you once, moron, Obama's deal with green energy companies was politics as usual. Those guys helped him get elected, he paid them back. It's a shame really, and I'm mad too because I'm a taxpayer too. Money wasted. But look at what the Federal Reserve does to our money. You will never hear me say anything good about Obama, except maybe that he isn't John McCain's senile old ass, or batsh!t Hillary. But seriously, you need to look into the MODERN technology. You have no idea what the capabilities are, you're stuck with OLD coal. You must not deal much with computers or tech stuff. I guess you're more into the sister loving type of thing. It's cool, bro, I don't judge.

I get tired of coming up with witty 'comebacks', so I switch to the facts. People like to throw up Solyndra when solar power is mentioned, but how many have heard of the company called Semprius? Probably none of you. Well they set the world record in May of this year for the most efficient PV panel. 34% of the Sun's energy is converted to electricity, and I heard a rumor that since then they have made one that is 41%. You guys should look at the big picture. Renewable energy is a young market, we as a country can use it to stimulate our economy, that's basic capitalism. In a true free market, coal would not survive to be thankful that the gov't bails out the coal companies by subsidizing them. Coal is becoming less desirable as new forms of energy come along. And yes, solar would work for Harlan. We might as well use the old barren strips for something, because we all know they will never be a forest again. Or we could just turn them all into ATV parks lol. I'm not a big fan of wind(haha) so I wouldn't know what's going on in that field, but solar is absolutely coming along. Coal kills more people than any other kind of energy. Sure it's cheap up front, but costs us more in the long run when you factor in healthcare bills and infrastructure damage. Those overloaded coal trucks are hell on the roads and bridges. So, from the looks of it, coal is going to have a hard time no matter who is elected in Nov. Sorry folks.

Well you said one truthful point you are sorry!!!! But that's about it! Who are you again? And why should all these companies listen to the opinions that you have? I never recall hearing any of the news Channels mention anything about a sorry piece of shit named Paul from Harlan topics representing solar power companies .....opinions are like ass holes every one has one and just bc you have one doesn't make it right! In my eyes and a lot of Harlan county's you and all these other low life tree huggers will never be happy you always will find something to bitch and cry over of its not over coal it's over air of its not over air it over trees or dirt or water or your can't breath or you can't find somewhere to grow your pot I mean what more do you want from these families you trash talk them like crazy but you say your not jealous you call them names your bash their lowly hood I mean really at least they work unlike a big percentage of ppl in this county. the reason eastern ky is labeled Like it is is because of our unemployment rates if these Ssi food stamp drawing medicare loving sorry asses would get off their ass then maybe eastern ky would have more things but who wants to invest money into special events and such in a county where the Ssi rates are higher then the working mans! You ppl blame it on the miners when really its the other way around and for the man you were speaking about whom you say says he can't breath anymore bc of working in the mines well a lot of that my friend comes from a little thing we call "SMOKING" I'm sure black lung plays a role in it to. Like I said before of you don't like coal them pack your shit and move out of here you said you were educated and made good money so I assume of you really are than you could find another job but you choose not to bc then you would have no reason to botch an complain!!! It's a growing trend that you tree huggers are trying to set and it's getting you no where except causing you to have a lot of enemies!

Enemies are fine with me, especially you coaltards in Harlan that are all full of hot air. I'm not a spokesman for any company. I have written dozens of letters and well over a hundred emails to Congressmen expressing our need for clean energy. The truth is, some of them actually respond. I've sent pictures of strip mines, deformed animals, and some of the nastiest water you've ever seen to them too. I'm working on getting some soil samples to UK, but they want to send their own people down here to eliminate the chance of contamination. That's fine with me. I'm certainly doing my part to fight for clean air and water. If some uneducated, pill snorting coal miner loses his job poisoning the planet, then so be it. If they are such hard workers they should have no problem finding another job. Fact is coal is being dethroned as we speak. You can say what you want to me, but tomorrow morning coal will still be in decline. And coal mines will still be idle or closing.
