And notice NO evidence that stealing our tax money and killing thousand of jobs will make any difference at all. Just lies about it was dying anyway and they dont want your tax money and similar BS. Hell they are ALREADY taxing us for their radical environmental policies against coal. People are ALREADY losing their jobs. Coal is being regulated out of existence based on debunked speculation and the deception that your tax money or the lack of coal plants will somehow change future weather. No more hurricanes and drought is you just pay triple your power bill and sacrifice thousands of jobs. The doomsdayers secret man made global warming climate changing machine powered by your tax money. Feed it enough no more mother nature. LOL

They could of been paid for by revenue that would have come from closing tax loopholes for the wealthy who are already paying historically low taxes, but Republicans couldn't have that.

Instead, we are allowing America's infrastructure to crumble.

<quoted text>Irrelevant and once again you are just trying to misdirect the conversation. My motives make no difference in FACTS of this issue. The most important fact being there is absolutely NO evidence that the US shutting down its coal plants, causing serious and very real economic hardship(not computer model predictions of catastrophe that have been shown to be WRONG), will have ANY impact on the changing climate.
Declining to state whether you have any income from the energy or related industries is raising suspicion that you do.
Climate change is a global problem. That's why we have international conferences and treaties. Everyone needs to change, like it or not, and those who don't will be left behind. Nobody said only the US needs to change. That is leading the discussion down a blind alley.
If I did have evidence, you would declare it unacceptable. The computer models of continued global warming have only been shown to be wrong on the screen in your head. If you can't understand that a short term leveling of a long term rise is not necessarily the end of the long term rise, then you have no understanding of statistical analysis, or of the science involved, and your opinion is disconnected from reality, therefore invalid and unacceptable to rational minds.
I am not aware of any proposals for instantly shutting down all coal power plants, which would be impractical even if we could. The idea is to phase them out over a few decades as other power sources come online.
What is stopping fossil energy companies from investing in renewables also? Do they not understand that they could make money both ways.
Let's look at the example of Germany.
http://breakingenergy.com/2013/12/06/germanys...
"In contrast, Germany, the world’s fourth-largest economy, launched a purposeful, careful, and successful energy transition in 1991, and agreed in 2000 to shut down nuclear power over a couple of decades. The pace quickened in 2011, when all political parties agreed to shut down the oldest 41% of Germany’s nuclear capacity immediately, the rest by 2022. But unlike Japan, Germany offset its entire 2011 nuclear loss in the same year—three-fifths by added renewable power—remaining a net exporter of competitive electricity.

In 2011, Germany’s economy grew 3% and stayed Europe’s strongest, boosted by 382,000 renewable energy jobs, many for exporters. Power reliability remained the best in Europe—about ten times better than America’s. Efficiency gains (plus a mild winter) cut Germany’s 2011 energy use 5.3%, electricity consumption 1.4%, carbon emissions 2.8%, and wholesale electricity prices 10–15%."

And you don't have to give up coal entirely if you can actually use it cleanly. But mining has to clean up its act. Destroying water, air, health, communities, and mountains has to stop.

What proof do you have that environmentalists and green energy advocates are in this big conspiracy to get your tax money? And no more unattributed excerpts from anonymous articles. For all we know, you're making those up too. You're trying to derail the conversation onto red herring talking points that have little to do with the real issues.

WARSAW, Poland (AP)— The top U.N. climate diplomat on Monday told the coal industry it should leave most of the world's remaining coal reserves in the ground and start investing in renewable energy sources.
Speaking at a coal summit on the sidelines of a U.N. climate conference in Warsaw, Christiana Figueres said the coal industry needs to change radically to help reduce the carbon emissions that scientists say are warming the planet.
"The world is rising to meet the climate challenge as risks of inaction mount, and it is in your best interest to make coal part of the solution," Figueres said.
Coal industry officials at the event didn't directly address her remarks but said the world cannot do without coal because in many countries it's the only available energy source.
"A major aim of the summit has been to encourage open and constructive dialogue on the climate challenge — we're not going to meet our climate objectives if we are not all part of the solution," the World Coal Association, which organized the event, said in a statement.
Polish Economy Minister Janusz Piechocinski, whose country generates about 90 percent of its electricity from coal, said: "You cannot have a low-emissions energy transformation without talking about coal."
Coal accounts for less than 30 percent of the world's energy supply but more than 40 percent of energy emissions, according to the International Energy Agency.
Figueres, who was criticized by some climate activists for attending the conference, noted coal's role in economic development since the industrial revolution but said it's come at "an unacceptably high cost to human and environmental health."
She said aging, high-polluting coal plants must be closed and new plants should implement technologies that allow for emissions to be trapped before they are released into the atmosphere. Such technologies are expensive and currently not widely used.
To bring down CO2 emissions to levels that would avoid dangerous levels of warming, most of the existing coal reserves must be left in the ground, Figueres said.

"Some major oil, gas and energy technology companies are already investing in renewables, and I urge those of you who have not yet started to join them," Figueres said.
Back at the U.N. conference later Monday, she told reporters she didn't expect any major shift in the industry's deployment of capital anytime soon.
"They really need to do a major, major rethink," Figueres said. "So I don't expect them to stand up immediately and go,'We are ready for the challenge right now,' but I do expect them to take the message very seriously."
That message was echoed by U.S. climate envoy Todd Stern.
"The world runs significantly on fossil fuels right now and that's not going to change overnight," he said. "But at the same time if we're going to get a grip on climate change ... the balance of energy in countries all over the world is going to have to tilt much more toward non-fossil sources."
Coal emissions have declined in the U.S. as some power plants have switched to lower-priced natural gas. But they are growing fast in China and India to meet the energy needs of their fast-growing economies.
Coal industry officials say significant emissions reductions can be achieved by improving the efficiency of coal-fired plants. But in the long term analysts say expensive carbon-capture technologies need to be implemented to make the deep cuts required to slow climate change

I'm posting the whole article about Germany because I know how much trouble it is for some of you conservatives to click on a link.

Germany’s Revolution in Efficiency and Renewable Energy
The March 2011 Fukushima accident destroyed four and shuttered most (currently all) of Japan’s 54 nuclear plants. Japan replaced nuclear energy with discomfort, sacrifice, and costly fossil fuels, because utility oligopolies suppressed renewable competitors and national energy efficiency languished. Two and a half years later, power reserves, though easing, remain tight, fuel bills exorbitant, and carbon emissions elevated.
In contrast, Germany, the world’s fourth-largest economy, launched a purposeful, careful, and successful energy transition in 1991, and agreed in 2000 to shut down nuclear power over a couple of decades. The pace quickened in 2011, when all political parties agreed to shut down the oldest 41% of Germany’s nuclear capacity immediately, the rest by 2022. But unlike Japan, Germany offset its entire 2011 nuclear loss in the same year—three-fifths by added renewable power—remaining a net exporter of competitive electricity.

Power reliability remained the best in Europe—about ten times better than America’s.
