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?

What is the alternative? Unless you've got magic beans, the technology simply does not exist to replace the use of fossil fuels. I'm sure someday it will but until then, what is your alternative?

Statistics that support burning coal:

The Informative Link Below said:
+PACs and individuals employed by the 48 mining, manufacturing, rail and utility companies that are a part of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE) contributed $15.6 million to federal candidates in the 2008 election cycle.

+87 percent of all members of Congress collected money from ACCCE members

Feasible alternatives... pedaling bikes is an 'alternative' too... just as unfeasible

Yet we notice you did not mention a viable alternative named Nuke.... Hmmm... I smell an environazi

Fair taxes and a budget balanced by law.

Remember: If the Horse and Buggy Lobby of 1895 was as powerful as the fossil fuel lobby of 1995, things would smell differently today, although not necessarily better.

Fair and simple taxes that subject ALL industries to the same tax rate allows the market to decide instead of the lobbyists.

Coal is just carbon atoms. Why do people hate carbon atoms? If we were silicon or sulphur based life forms, I could understand the animosity.

I like nuclear. I run my AC all summer and I don't feel guilty at all - I live 10 miles from a nuclear power plant.
