    Eliminate the EPA first, then start dismantling their programs. Just end EPA funding that should go a long way to ending this kind of tyranny.

    After coal, you know they are going to start on natural gas, that's why they are already having skirmishes against fracking.

    So I take it the EPA already has a viable replacement for Coal, or actions like this would be fucking insane... Unless they want to bankrupt American citizens that is.

    There's no replacement, there doesn't need to be a replacement. The goal isn't to have an energy policy that benefits people, but an energy policy that pleases Gaia.

    When the EPA had their war on fireplaces and BBQs everyone laughed. When the coal industry is shut down, the laws preventing people from getting heat from their own fireplaces have been in place for many years.

    Invest in a warm coat, until the government mandates coat sharing with the poor.

    Keep this stuff in mind, Americans living in Coal Country, when you go to the voting booth tomorrow! 4 more years of Obama means no more jobs for you!

    Fracked gas is the future for electric power plants. It's cheaper to use and we have a decade of over supply.

    You think the people currently running the EPA give a damn about the reason it was created? They are Marxist ideologues intent on destroying capitalism.
