There has been a lot of support for the burning of coal of late, and the insistence that it is economically and environmentally sound. As a matter of fact there is no clean method of burning coal and the GOP is crying "foul" for tighter restrictions on coal burning plants. I am wondering something; How much would a littering ticket set you back in your county, and is throwing a bubble gum wrapper out the window of a moving vehicle as detrimental to our ecology as the burning of coal? I hear a lot from the GOP side that coal burning is "no problem," but where are the stats. that enforce this belief and is mountain top removal and burning this earthen material a sound investment into our future?
