I suppose you need to send out the cops to my place, since I disagree with you (ie: I'm protesting against what you propose).
Would be nice to line all of you up and run over you with a bulldozer. That would be enrichment of the earth.

I know of at least one protester that should be "allowed to exist". He's a veteran of Nam, he's paid his dues. What say you?

Send of those pieces of protester garbage to China or Somalia. The police should have caved their heads in.

Your arse is correct. Most individuals aren't in the habit of handing out copies of their DD-214.

Coal fired power plants CAN be more environmentally friendly. The installation of scrubbers significantly reduces pollution.
Why won't they install these devices? Because it cuts into their bottom line. It's paramount that the EPA force these companies to install said devices.
You are certainly right. Scrubbers are the answer. That will clean things up. The people of eastern KY and West Virginia (damn Americans) are wackos. They whine about their homes being destroyed, water quality being damaged, still birth rate increasing, cancer rates increasing... don't they know that their radical and unpatriotic ranting will hammer our economy into dust? Take one for the team! Quit being so freaking selfish! We just need to be concerned about the air quality only.

Wackos they're not. I'm well aware of the devastating effects of MTR coal mining. Eliminating our reliance on fossil fuel should be a priority. Unfortunately, it's not.

Look what Duke gets for helping write the new climate change legislation:

"The exemption would save Duke Energy -- along with other firms now building new coal power plants -- from having to spend millions of dollars outfitting its Cliffside, N.C., power plant currently under construction with "clean coal" technology. "
