reason for coal's price decline, fracking, is sponsored by big oil, gop buddies
The president could have avoided sequestration, but did not want to give-in on his pet projects...Coal is the cheapest, most transportable source of energy...EPA regulations have crippled coal in va....I'm fine with freezing budgets, but all states should share in the giving

Congress could not decide on a budget and were at an impasse. Without a budget approval, gv't would have shut down. Obama suggested sequestration (and old idea) as a short term solution. Congress took it and ran with it.

The EPA regulations affecting coal predate Obama.

"The shale gas revolution has lowered, tremendously, the price of natural gas in the US. As it will do any and every where else that people are allowed to drill for it. In the process this will close coal plants as they find that they cannot compete with the pricing of that natural gas. That will lead to a halving, around and about, of emissions from that portion of the electricity system that is still fossil fuel fed.

There is more to it than this as well. Clean gas is an awful lot easier to achieve than clean coal. It’s much, much, easier to strip the C out of CH4 before combustion than it is to collect, cool and compress CO2 from coal after combustion. So a move to gas would be at least a step towards that desired low to no carbon emission electricity generation system. There are energy losses in both cases but gas seems to have lower such as well."

The EPA is a back-door department to deliver the president's directives...he could easily de-crawl them...

You're naive and will eventually take a virginia-first stance when educated..stay in school

Depends upon what/ which national forest...clear cutting on private land is very sustainable...plant it, thin in 7 years, thin at 14 years, clear at 21 ( pine)....it's been done forever... Cutting back on printing or mailing only hurts va..

For generational hardwoods or large red woods, obvious that protection should be considered

I would rather all Virginians had jobs and the world ended a day early.

Please don't be fed bs about clear cutting

Bobby Scott gets church money from the poor blacks in Tidewater. He hasn't done a days work in his life. He looks like a librarian. Also, he uses the blacks because he has them down for the struggle.
