The coal miner vote.  Think of all the kids leaving school today that are just devastated that they can't work in a coal mine.

Of course not. Do you have any idea how big Pennsylvania is?

Besides, the corners would keep catching on New Jersey, and he'd have to drop it. Bam! Counties everywhere!

Ringshadow: If your industry has the ability to do massive damage to yourself, your employees, and/or the surrounding environment/civilians, you should be regulated as hard as nuclear power is.


Exactly.  Taco Bell should have 10 permits they have to obtain every day just to open thier doors.

GOOD. I have asthma and I have a strong suspicion it's partially coal related, based on where I live.

Yes it costs more to tamp down on pollution, however keep in mind -- all you guys on my big health insurance plan are helping to pay for my inhalers and Singulair. Also I'm turning into a fatty partially because I can't exercise well due to asthma. You'll pay for the consequences down the road.

coal -> fatty -> profit?

Hollie Maea: I would gladly give up PA's electoral votes in exchange for an actual legitimate War on Coal.


Seconded.

Tommy Moo: We could just build some nuclear plants in PA to balance it out.


Also a good idea.  Handles base load nicely, reduces need for storage, goes in places that are suboptimal for wind.

My order: Solar > wind > geothermal > biomass >  hydro > fission > gas > oil > anything else > coal.  We're pretty much maxed out on hydro, but the top four are ramping up exponentially, especially in countries where the House of Representatives is not staffed by inbred mouth-breathers who think their electricity is breathed into their homes by Jesus.

cman: We need more solar and nuclear options.

Simple as that.

They are very clean. Solar is limitless energy and nuclear can power significant numbers.

Coal plants everywhere should be shut down


Solar is a stupid idea, what are we supposed to do at night? Libtards!

Coal-mining is a wonderful thing father, but it's something you'll never understand. Just look at you!

FTFA:  The administration has already issued standards for dangerous pollutants like mercury that also come from coal, like mercury.

They really like mercury.

I thought they had all that Natural Gas production via fracking going on? Or are you just blowing smoke up my ass?


That's against EPA regulations.
