<quoted text>Now that was incredibly stupid and unfounded BS.
You should get off the Faux before you speak again.
That was a US News article not Fox. The Kyoto Protocol is open records, 3rd world counties do not fall under the carbon emissions restrictions. Don't know how Communist China got included as a 3rd world country but India and China can and will burn all the coal they can get their hands on.
We were counting on selling them some but the environmentalist liberal agenda is already fighting that. World consumption of coal will double by 2022 as we shut down our coal fired power plants. China brings a coal fired plant on line at a rate of about one a day. India is begging for coal, that is all over the internet and available for anyone that wants to look it up.

Obama and the EPA are killing our cheapest energy source and our economy for no good reason. Google Chinese coal production Figures and Coal consumption in India, you can research future trends and every report out there points to not only continued us of coal by China and India but they are increasing their reliance on coal.

Obama is destroying the Eastern Ky. Economy and the economy of the U.S. for no good reason. He will not reduce carbon emissions by one ton into the atmosphere, he might reduce it here in the U.S. and drive our energy prices higher in an already bad economy but China and India and the other 3rd world countries are allowed to burn coal by the Kyoto Protocol that he signed off on. Why would the U.S. cripple itself by not using our most abundant energy source while other nations are allowed to use it and in fact will double their consumption of coal.
This is not a sound environmentalist policy and it is the worst energy policy a sane government could ever think of. I can't believe our government would be so stupid as to purposely destroy the chance for is to become energy independent and purposely set about to destroy our economy.

China, India and third world countries are burning coal and will continue to do so, that is not in dispute, easy to confirm.

It is a scientific fact that the carbon and other elements China, India and the 3rd world countries pump into the atmosphere does not stay in their countries.

The Kyoto Protocol and our stupid EPA regs might have made more since it the burning of coal was banned world wide and every country had to stop burning it. As it stands the largest polluters will be able to burn as much coal as they want and will continue to increase the amount of coal they use.

What good does it do for the President and the EPA to stop our coal production and shut down our coal fired power plants when others are still pumping carbon into the atmosphere? Why are we the ones destroying our economy by driving electrical prices beyond what we will be able to afford with no viable alternative energy in sight? Why are we destroying our local economy and the countries economy for something that is not making one iota's worth of difference?

I know the big plan it to make coal so expensive that the renewables will be able to get a foothold in the energy market and for the government to rake in billions from the carbon tax. Thing is the renewable energy sources are not doable at this time and we are shutting down coal fired plants with no power generation from alternative sources to replace the Power We Lose. Yes they can shut down Louisa and AEP can buy power off the grid at a higher rate but how many coal fired plants can you shut down with nothing on line to replace the power you lose.
It is like a firing squad formed in a circle! The most absolute stupidest concept ever developed by a left wing Democrat. You keep taking power off line provided by coal and hoping power will become so expensive that the alternative sources will come on line. That is a dangerous GD gamble if no other renewable sources are made ready to step in as we lose coal fired powered power plants.
It takes years just to get a nuclear plant approved then 10 years or more to build one. It takes years to get a hydroelectric dam approved and years to build one. You can't have solar when the sun don't shine and you can't put the grid on batteries at night when it don't. Just a stupid concept that no one understands how it got this far with anyone with any common sense not stopping this nonsense before he destroys the country.

He is not making a nickels worth of difference on carbon emissions into the atmosphere because he can't make India and China quit burning it.

He will not reap billions in carbon tax because it is just cheaper for a utility to just shut down the coal fired plant and say to hell with it. He will not see any of the renewables make a big amount of difference because it will take billions of dollars to develop them at a time when he is taking billions out of the economy by raising the power rates beyond any level that will support economic growth.
That's the thing with the liberal tree huggers, they are real good at campaigning, controlling the media and the message, getting their left wing environmentalist elected but never gave any thought as to how they are going to make this carbon tax work or how they can shut down all the coal plants and still have electrical power before the renewables come on line.

If you think ObamaCare was a major screw up and a mess just watch the next 10 years when the carbon tax scheme and the war on coal blows up in their face.

stop being so obnoxious and idiotic you stupid obama suking doof.
hazard ky offers twice the businesses as pikeville and unlike pikeville whose leaders only focus on their own selfish needs, such as golf courses and airports, hazard actually ulitized a reclaimed mine site to build a huge shopping center and many restaurants and businesses.
imagine that area losing all that income from the loss of those miners shopping, eating, paying mortgages, etc.
you really need to grow up, you have lived inside of a shell protected by your cotton lining that you dont have a clue what is going on in the world.
thus, the reason you never contribute anything but childish ramblings to the discussion.

Hell dope dealers are living better than people who have spent most of their lives working in the mines. I don't care what you say Obama played a big part in the war on coal. I don't see all these people against coal not using it when their asa gets cold. Why are they using it as they have been for years if their so against it?Coals been good enough for years to provide people with the luxury of lights heat air with many giving their lives for is to have these luxuries. But now that Obamas in office suddenly its not longer safe to use. I get the issues of safety and agree the mines should keep up to code but when one makes that nearly impossible.I cant believe people voted him in a second term but thank the good Lord above he cant be elected again. Its going to take years to clean up his messes. That is if China doesn't own the US before that.

Well coal won't collapse overnight, it will go over a 10 year period of time. We are going through a rash of shut mine layoffs right now and this will continue every year over the next 10 years. If you have a coal job now get out of debt and try to save some money. Be thinking about what you will do when the coal job is gone. Don't just wait until you lose your job to start preparing.

The president has little or nothing to do with the economy, the economy is controlled by the Federal Reserve Bank that is printed right there on your money you have in your pocket. The PRIVATE bank is no more federal than federal express (fedex) and has the power to print money out of thin air which inflates the dollar and makes it loose value. Also, these private bankers can control the interest rates which can cause bubbles like with this housing market bubble and then after these bubbles pop these bankers can buy up corporations at pennies on the dollar.
Now that you know it's not the President (although he did re-appoint Bernake as chairman of the fed)
Coal is not the only thing doing bad, it's everything. You do not see people at gas companies that are being laid off by the dozens out going "Obama is going to end natural gas" You do not see people who own small business out in the streets going "Obama is going to end small business"
Coal is a boom bust business and it always has been, it was booming last year and is busting this year. It will boom again sometime soon and then bust again, thats just how the natural resource business works, remember when gas was $4 a gallon? Oil was boom then, it's bust now.
Common sense people.
