Georgia needs the power and it needs the jobs. Fear of obama's new regulations puts both power and jobs in jeopardy. America has enough coal to last 250 years and its the cheapest way to produce electricity. Ban obama, don't ban coal!

Georgia has every kind of powerplant you can name. Nuclear, coal, natural gas, hydroelectric, and even biomass that burns wood chips from Georgia's timber industry. We don't need to put all of our eggs in one basket. Another coal plant and another nuclear plant would be just fine.

Just capture Atlanta's illegal immigrants, build some enclosed giant gerbil wheels and make them run/work for their food (rice). The number of illegal immigrants in Atlanta alone will keep the South powered!
