Corbett Calls Obama’s Climate Change Proposal A War On Coal And Jobs
Governor Tom Corbett reacted to President Obama’s climate change proposal today, calling the initiative a “war on coal” and a “war on jobs.”
“Here in Pennsylvania, nearly 63,000 men and women, including 8,100 miners, work in jobs supported by the coal industry.” Corbett said in a statement.“This proposal is not only a war on coal, as suggested by a White House climate adviser, but also a war on jobs.”
Pennsylvania is the fourth-largest coal producing state in the nation.

The Governor had to Man Up. The amount of tax revenue the Obama EPA debacle will cost PA is in the millions. The number of well paying jobs in the thousands. The Governor wasn't elected to Pander to Obama........that was Ed Rendell.

Rural Dems Complicate Obama's Climate Push
Some of the loudest opposition to Obama's speech on climate change yesterday at Georgetown University came not from Republicans, but from rural Democrats like Manchin. "It's clear now that the President has declared a war on coal," Manchin said in a press release. "The regulations the President wants to force on coal are not feasible. And if it's not feasible, it's not reasonable."
...And he's not alone. Rep. Bill Enyart, a freshman Democrat from down-state Illinois, said he would "work tirelessly" against the new mandates. The regulations would "decimate our Southern Illinois coal industry," Enyart said in a statement that's getting picked up by newspapers in his district. Rep. Nick Rahall, a big coal backer who represents southern West Virginia, called the new policy "misguided, misinformed and untenable."
Even Terry McAuliffe, the Democratic nominee for governor in Virginia, is softening his previous stand on coal, which plays a big role in southwestern Virginia's economy.

You mean to tell me that there are Congressmen who prioritize their own re-election efforts over the common good?

You mean to tell me that there are politicians who stretch the truth in order to pander to their constituents rather than do the courageous but risky thing and stand up for the long-term good?

My lands! Why, I've never heard of such a thing!

LMAO!

Obama is doing what is right.

His critics are on the wrong side of history.

This is a lie. Shale gas is the aggressor in the war against coal, not the President.
Every bit of drop in coal demand and coal production can be traced directly to market forces moving to cheap natural gas - every single bit of it.
Blaming the President is satisfying to the enraged wingnut partisans, but it's a story based in myth.
You're full of shitz. Obama's regulations have forced the coal power plants to upgrade scrubbers just to name one and have put many coal fired power plants in mothballs. This has affected coal strip mines, deep mines to drivers who delivered the coal and many more into bankruptcy. I know what I'm talking about because this has affected my area big time. Stop posting your lies, shitz for brains and if you think there not lies then get informed.

Marcellus gas is not the aggressor you dumb fuk it's your can't do no wrong black president. His green policies, all his regulations he put into effect is the problem. His goal always was and still is to drive up oil to make it so expensive that ethanol, wind power and solar power are able to compete. Did you forget his campaign speech where he said this? Of course you didn't forget it!

Do your homework idiot and get back to me with the total coal plants that closed up, are in the process of closing up or went into mothballs. When your idiot president is gone from office and his regulations have been reversed those plants in mothballs will reopen with affordable electric. My God, the more you post the more stupid you appear.

"shitz"? "azz"? Are you seriously so stupid that you can't correctly spell three and four letter words?

And you talk about the decline of coal like it's a BAD thing. LOL! Guess what dipshit - coal is killing our planet. You might not give a shit about the planet you leave our children and grandchildren, but the rest of us decent, patriotic Americans do.

So pull your head out of your azz because it's causing you to be a shitz for brainz.

The Market Is Behind Coal's Decline

The EPA's new carbon pollution standards can't be blamed for the demise of coal -- but they will make our air healthier for all Americans.
Republicans love to tout market forces as the solution to all problems -- until the market starts voting against their pet industries. It is the market, not the government, that is causing the decline of coal.
...
When it comes to developing power plants, it's become clear to most business people that coal is simply a bad investment. Not only is coal-fired power a dirty and antiquated fuel, but other sources of energy have become significantly less expensive.

Markets Favor Alternatives to Coal

A Closer Look at Key Drivers
Following are some of the key drivers influencing the direction of the U.S. power sector:

1. Natural gas prices are low. Monthly average prices for natural gas delivered to electric generators are approaching a 10-year low, which is largely attributable to the rapidly expanding supply of shale gas.

2. Coal prices have increased significantly.... rising U.S. coal prices have also been attributed to declining productivity at U.S. coal mines, which dropped by more than 20%, on average, between 2000 and 2010.

3. Growth in electricity demand has slowed. In the past couple of years, growth in U.S. electricity consumption has declined in part because of the economic recession, but also as a result of technology advancements, along with programs designed to promote energy efficiency and demand side management.

4. Renewables are becoming more affordable and their market share is on the rise.
...
With compliance deadlines still three or more years away – as is the case of the Mercury Air Toxics Standard (MATS)– and other market forces already contributing to declining U.S. coal use, available evidence does not support claims that new regulations are to blame for the retirement of America’s aging coal fleet.

U.S. Coal Decline Driven By Free Market, Despite Industry Opposition To Obama

Despite Murray's protestations, the decline of the coal industry is being driven by the free market. U.S. natural gas production rose 16 percent from November 2008 to November 2012, creating a cheap supply that has made gas-generated electricity more competitive than that from coal.

Toomey: Obama climate change plan full of 'bad ideas'
U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey joined the chorus of Republicans pouring cold water on President Barack Obama's climate change speech Tuesday.
Toomey, a Lehigh Valley Republican, said Obama's proposal was old, costly, and damaging to the nation's fragile economic recovery.
“The president’s remarks today were a rehash of the same old bad ideas we have heard for four and a half years,” Toomey said in a release.
“From making coal-fired electricity prohibitively expensive; to forcing taxpayers to subsidize inefficient energy; to burning more corn in gas tanks, the president continues to advocate policies that raise prices for consumers and destroy jobs throughout the economy,” he added.

I see you're back with the racist comments. Every time without fail when you're faced with facts that you cannot dispute or I rip you a new asshole you resort to calling me a racist. Now you're calling a horse racist. LOL Everyone is a racist in your eyes Danny Boy. Your kid can make all the racist comments she wants to and that's good in your eyes isn't it Danny Boy? LOL

Of course my President is black, at least in your eyes. Because that's all you want see, is his black skin and this makes you the racist POS that you are, dummy. And you should be ashamed to teach your daughter this garbage. You want your daughter to be proud of her black skin yet hide her white side. You and your kind keep racism alive!

What you fail to see is Obama is as much white as he is black but you don't dare mention his white side do you. There is no advantage do doing that is there dummy? The way you see Obama, the black man, is not the way I see him, so when I refer to your president from now on, hopefully you will understand. Do you comprehend, dummy?

I love it when I get under your skin and you wiggle around like a worm, and every time you lash out at me with your stupid immature racist comments I really do LMAO.
