Obama Administration Attempting to Kill Coal Industry

Posted by Steve Markowitz on June 5, 2012

President Obama and radical environmentalists are intent on using the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to pursue their radical Leftist agenda.  This includes inhibiting the use of any carbon-based energy sources such as coal and ultimately redistributing wealth from industrial nations to Third World countries.

While the President hides his true agenda behind rhetoric, the actual intent leaks out from time to time by Administration officials.  Such was the case in March when EPA official Curt Spalding was caught on a recently released video posted below speaking at Yale University when he said:

But know right now, we are, we are struggling.  We are struggling because we are trying to do our jobs. Lisa Jackson has put forth a very powerful message to the country.  Just two days ago, the decision on greenhouse gas performance standard and saying basically gas plants are the performance standard which means if you want to build a coal plant you got a big problem.  That was a huge decision.  You can’t imagine how tough that was.  Because you got to remember if you go to West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and all those places, you have coal communities who depend on coal.  And to say that we just think those communities should just go away, we can’t do that.  But she had to do what the law and policy suggested.  And it’s painful.  It’s painful every step of the way.

Even assuming that the alarmists are correct about the potential environmental dangers of man-made global warming, they also rarely discuss the efficacy of these proposed policies.  Add to this their unwillingness to also discuss the dangers to the environment, economy and/or food supplies of their proposed policies and you have the recipe for a true man-made disaster that goes well beyond the coal towns of West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
