    The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to act for the first time to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, The New York Times reported on Wednesday, citing senior Obama administration officials.

    EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has asked her staff to review the latest scientific evidence and prepare documentation for a finding that greenhouse gas pollution endangers public health and welfare, the newspaper said.

    There is wide expectation that Jackson will act by April 2, the second anniversary of a Supreme Court decision that found that EPA has the authority to regulate greenhouse pollution under the U.S. Clean Air Act.

    Here it comes, damned idiot conservatives defending the Saudi right to suck the US dry. Stupid asses, they would far rather send all our money overseas than get off their lazy butts and build the grid that would pick up the abundant and free power right here in the US.

    But to do that, we would have to spread the wealth arround a bit. Couldn't just have it all going to the present oligarchs. And that is a very bad thing, in a conservative eye. Them damned lazy wheat farmers might get a few tens of thousands of dollars in thier pockets, instead of in the pockets of the CEOs of the energy corperations.

    The Obama admin is going with real science. Good for them.

    So if I'm reading this right, Ms. Jackson has told her staff which result she wants BEFORE they have actually taken a look at "the latest data". Didn't we just get rid someone who did something very similar to that? Also, I'm glad they're "going after" carbon-dioxide, they've just proven how colossally ignorant they really are. Go EPA!!!! Teach that nasty carbon-dioxide a lesson!!!! :rofl:

    Huh!!?
    Average Coal Miner - $66,600
    Chief Engineer - $98,300
    Chief Geologist - $81,800
    Environ Coordinator - $78,900
    Mine Engineer - $71,000
    Mine Geologist - $68,000
    Environmental Technician - $41,400

    It appears that part of Obama’s agenda is to destroy jobs rather than create them. Where will these guys go to work…?

    In the areas where these mines are located, these are the best and about the only jobs to be had.
