Truly a bunch of ignorant people. To not have any consideration for the working class people, from truck drivers to the janitors that could not work that day due to the security shutdown. These hard working people feeding their families will now have a smaller paycheck this week thanks to these halfwit's. These bunch of yahoo's should be thrown in jail for this disruption. They have every right to change the laws, be advocates for what they believe,protest outside the gate, but they have no right effecting the lives of others while performing this stunt. Let me show up at their place of employment and hang from the front door and not let them work for the day.

Hey, wackaloon, the plant was not shut down and nobody's going to get a smaller paycheck. Nice propaganda, though, for a wackaloon who obviously never learned good English in school. How far did you get before flunking out, 9th grade?

Are you getting enough arsenic, mercury, and chromium salts in your tea?

Thanks for the post, though. And congratulations. Your post qualifies you as one of today's candidates for the GALACTICIDIOT AWARD!

These people have an agenda and aren't particularly concerned over who it hurts in the short run.Lock them up where there is no heat or lights or electricity...that is, after all, what they want.

No death wish here my little monkey but there must be in that Green pee group. A domestic terrorist is a domestic terrorist whether they dress in black robes and chant Allahu Akbar before blowing up infrastructure or wear a green peace symbol while perpetrating eco-terrorism.

I say when it comes to terrorists of any flavor we `shoot first and ask questions later'. No need in having our economy and infrastructure destroyed by some insane zealots when they are in clear sight. Nip it in the bud is what I say!

You're ancient, bnog dvae myanard, gap-toothed, cowardly, and ugly. And besides that, you couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with that little pea-shooter of yours. Walk down the street and irritate your neighbors who run indoors at the sight of you.

These people want freedom to choke on the air they breath. They want freedom to get lung cancer, emphysema, freedom is the ultimate value even if it means freedom to die young. I concur, they should be free to die young and the sooner the better for those of us who appreciate clean air, water and uncontaminated soil.

"Particulate matter from coal-fired power plants have been shown in studies to increase the rate of respiratory and cardiac mortality. The particulates can increase instances of asthma, chronic bronchitis, and other respiratory ailments because they irritate the airways in the lungs. Government regulations currently do not cover ultrafine particles, yet they pose many dangers.

Coal-fired power plants are extremely detrimental to the environment as well as human health, and current government regulations simply do not protect against the hazards presented by them. Citizenís Coal Council is currently working with environmental groups across the country to address the problem of coal-fired power plants, bringing national attention to the problems presented by them, and assisting communities in bringing about much needed change so we can all live greener, breathe cleaner air, and provide a better future for generations to come.">

Are you sincere in your query or just up to the usual antics? There are many alternatives and most of them renewable. You seem to think there is an infinite supply of coal or other fossil fuels for us to dig out of the earth? Well there isn't. Today coal may be plentiful but ask those who suffer from the rape of the land as huge drag line buckets rip the tops of mountains. "Mr Peabody's train done haul it away."

Yes, wind power is part of the solution, as is solar as are a number of other options. http://www.altenergy.org/ Yes even hydro electric. Developments in turbines have made a lot less flow viable for producing power even from the movement of the tides. As for solar, electricity from roof tops is alive and well all over this country. Power plants in other places have facilitated the install of home photovoltaics. If installations are on line they can add to the general energy production during peak hours which is to say a good installation will produce more poswer than is needed by the home.

Boils down to this, you can sit on your duff and do nothing until fossil fuels become so scarce they become unaffordable or worse or you can get moving on projects to provide clean renewable energy NOW.

In 1968 that stack that the greennuts climbed was in operation and did not even have a fence around it. Some TCR high school boys were out enjoying a beer or two when they got the idea to climb that same smoke stack. One boy went hone and stole an old full sized white sheet and they painted DUKE POWER on it. Three startd climbing with others on the ground watching. One boy chickened out quickly and came down. The other two climbed to the top and hung the DUKE banner. LOL
