Depends how one defines "polluting."
Modern coal fired plants remove particulates, sulfur oxides, and nitrogen oxides.
One could easily argue that solar power plants cause far more permanent damage to the environment because of the vast amounts of land involved and their frequent location in desert areas that have very fragile ecosystems that cannot recover once disturbed.
Wind turbines also have significant environmental effects, including killing large numbers of protected bird species.
And the negative effects of hydropower projects such as the Three Gorges Dam in China are obvious.

Except the Russians don't play with squirrels, as they teach the Chinese how to play the violin because Russians do better in musical instruments and ballet.
Once again, since Chairman Mao admired Russia's Stalin to seek as master for radicalism revolution in those days, these days the Chinese might seek the Russians to teach them to drone back and defeat US drones of violating rules of laws, if US dares to use spy like Fogle again to hunt for information of Snowden.
Since Russians don't play with rabbits, squirrels or sand marbles, but the surveying using their fast jets of possible drone activation that China might be interested to be trained by Russians to implement the International law, while playing the role of climate change agenda.
You still don't get it. It doesn't matter what Russia and China think of President Obama's climate change plan, climate change is devastating their countries and to act as if everything is 'normal' dooms them to catastrophic consequences. Nations do understan what's in their self-interest and climate suicide isn't it.

Yes, that's why Bob Corker wants big government to create 20,000 new jobs in building an extension to the 'Freedom Wall' fence along our border with Mexico to keep illegals out before he votes fro the Immigration Bill(I hope that the Mexico President will echo Reagan's 'call' and tell 'Mr. President Obama 'tear down that wall'!) Those 20,000 new jobs can be given to the coal miners looking for new jobs after we end all financing of coal ---they can have healthier, safer jobs at building the soft energy national infrastructure , a new renewable energy grid , for a 21st modern America.

Here's an idea.

Obama should persuade his Communist buddies to live with the same environmental restrictions as American power producers.

Seems fair.

If you are correct about climate change, which you are not, then changes by America will do absolutely no good if China and Russia and India and Korea and Vietnam and others do not do the same.

To think that their emissions of greenhouse gases would affect only their countries is naive.

Had Glass-Steagall been in place, Citigroup could not have formed CitiFinancial and Bear Stearns would not have needed a bailout. Many in the financial community believe the repeal of Glass-Steagall did contribute to the financial mess we are in.

The reason why Hillary Clinton has remained silent over her husband's repeal of Glass-Steagall may be because it is more embarrassing than Monica Lewinsky.

The climate has apparently been in a "warming plateau" for the past 15 years.

Scientific data shows the temperatures have not varied that significantly.

Most of the warming over the last century occurred before 1940 - preceding the vast majority of human-caused carbon dioxide emissions worldwide. Global warming alarmists have been unable to explain this mismatch between warming theory and scientific data.

James Hansen, director of NASA's Goddard Institute of Space Studies who started the clamor for action to prevent global warming, wrote in the 1998 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that "the forcings that drive long-term climate change are not known with accuracy sufficient to define future climate change."

So much for being sure.

DUMB ASS VOTERS

n a statement, President Obama called today's Supreme Court decision on the Voting Rights Act a "setback."

"I am deeply disappointed with the Supreme Court’s decision today. For nearly 50 years, the Voting Rights Act – enacted and repeatedly renewed by wide bipartisan majorities in Congress – has helped secure the right to vote for millions of Americans. Today’s decision invalidating one of its core provisions upsets decades of well-established practices that help make sure voting is fair, especially in places where voting discrimination has been historically prevalent," reads Obama's statement.

"As a nation, we’ve made a great deal of progress towards guaranteeing every American the right to vote. But, as the Supreme Court recognized, voting discrimination still exists. And while today’s decision is a setback, it doesn’t represent the end of our efforts to end voting discrimination. I am calling on Congress to pass legislation to ensure every American has equal access to the polls. My Administration will continue to do everything in its power to ensure a fair and equal voting process."

WERE IN THE HELL IS THERE DISCRIMINATION?
ONE LADY VOTED 5 TIMES LAST ELECTION!
IT SHOULD BE A FEDERAL LAW THAT EVERONE HAVE A VOTER ID!

lol! Again with your idiotic claims of CRA.

The truth will never get through... you pile on too much political insulation to cocoon yourself.

Banks were never forced to make those loans. In fact, there were banks that never qualified as having to be required to follow CRA guidelines in the first place.

You're just filled with too much hate. It's a shame you ruined so many kids.

There is not too much they can do about climate change, i.e., as they go upon the agenda, it won't affect much of the earth temperature since it has been that way in terms of what mother nature does since history of time.

There is no question it can affect to a certain degree when there are bigger population on the planet as the temperature would be affected, yet the temperature could also be cycled back by God if it gets too hot.

It won't affect much the occurrence of tornados, hurricanes, rainfalls, etc., as how often these happen is the determination of your mother nature.

It is not sure whaT Russia and China are up to in the agenda, as all indicates that it is better to engage to get into the dialogue, or maybe they don't want US to dictate too much about a lot of things of how they should be like.

<quoted text> There is where I have a problem. I think everyone should pay for themselves and no one else. Do you think they are going to take the tax off my property bill that funds the state and county hospital? how about it? or is that where the illegal criminals and the rest of the indigents are going to go.
And then this: I don't want to pay for fat people.
A recent decision by the AMA may have a dangerous ripple effect.
Last week, the House of Delegates of the American Medical Association (AMA) voted to classify obesity as a disease. While the AMA has no legal authority, as one of largest organizations for conventional medicine, it has tremendous sway over public policy makers, insurance companies, and the public.
One of the main reasons doctors have been reluctant to prescribe obesity drugs is that obesity drugs are currently not covered by Medicare, and most insurance companies take their coverage cues from Medicare. Since the AMA has such sway with the government, its classification of obesity as a disease may well end up influencing what Medicare will cover (which also benefits the AMA, since they establish the billing codes in line with what Medicare will cover). Labeling obesity as a disease gives doctors a much larger market base for their lucrative obesity treatments: one-third of Americans are obese, meaning there is a potential market of 104 million people.
The problem, of course, is that obesity is a lifestyle condition, not a disease in and of itself. Studies show that most medical schools fail to supply even a meager 25 hours of instruction in diet and nutrition, so doctors will inevitably turn to the treatments they know best: drugs and surgery.
Good thing the doctors are going to push up the cost of so called 'health care for the masses ay?
You illustrate the point well, Medicare does drive costs. That's the main contributor to the high cost of care in this country. This half-in/half-out approach screws those in the middle, the ones not qualifying for Medicare/Medicaid and the indigent. Health care reform started with a single-payer option but Obama insisted Obamacare be "bi-partisan" (it didn't end up being that so what did he gain?) so single-payer was dropped when that was actually the most efficient alternative on the table. Privatizing health care was never on the table from either side, they both need the old folks vote so don't hold your breath on that one. Ironically, a market based solution to the obesity problem you brought up would likely be much more effective than any government attempt to regulate or educate the problem away. Having your obesity come out of your checking account every month would go further towards changing behavior than any PSA.

Anyway, good post.
