    This is the p[romise that Obama made to the Nuclear Electric Companies to destroy their compitition (Cheaper Coal Plants) by using the EPA to place highly unreasonalbe restrictions and licensing fees on the Coal Powered Electricity producing plants. He also said that this act would drive them out of the Industry and allowing for much higher Elecrtricity Charges to their customers. So BLAME OBAMA ! Blame Obama for giving Afghanistan back to the Taliban, Benghazi, Pakistan, the Unr4est in Egypt,Syria,Palestine with Hamas, The Muslim Brotherhood Members in his Administration, the unconstitutional release of Enemy AlQaeda from Gitmo, Higher fuel and Electricity charges, using the IRS & EPA against citizens the perilous situation in Isrial, the rise of Communism in the USA and the emasuculation of Our Military. I am sure that I have missed many more things to Blame Obama for.

    Did anyone ever come out and tell us what the carbon load from last year’s Yosemite fire was? Haven’t heard a word have we. Maybe since 300 sq. miles burned up in the dirtiest manner possible the 30% or 50% or more reduction from all the power plants might look small. Kinda like mercury from volcanos compared to what comes out of the plants burning coal. Billions of dollars spent for little or no real actual measurable improvement. Just claims from interpolations of scant facts and opinions that support the spin.

    Floyd, you are a political stooge. You should learn something about economics and politics before you spew your BS! You commentary is almost enough BS that I have to fight myself to keep on subscribing to WSD.

    This whole scenario does not have to happen if we develope
    Thorium Bleeder Reactors, like the Chinese are doing.
    Thorium is much more plentiful than Uranium, can’t produce much in the way of Nuclear waapons, requires no change out of rods and no meltdowns. Should have chosen Thorium way back in 1948 instead of Uranium. Well, they wanted to make bombs from the by-product of plutonium. Thorium is much safer, easier, and cost effective when
    compared to Uranium. What the h&^%$ are we waiting for?

    Our world as we know it is ending, and most of us ignore the obvious. We MUST STOP DESTROYING OUR HOME! We are not going to colonize Mars or the moon, and we are not going to find another planet to move to. We are NOT slowing down pollution–We are only slowing down the ACCELERATION of pollution. Wake up, people! We can’t wait til it’s convenient to change things, and we can’t wait til tomorrow to start. This is our only home, and WE are the ones with the responsibility to fix and repair it.
    First, we must admit that as a species, we are greedy, lazy, selfish, and self-centered. The rest of the Earth does NOT deserve the fate we are imposing on it. There are so many things we must, but refuse to do, like being responsible for our own existence. The necessary skills for survival are lost to most of us, and most of us have no way to survive without dollars in our pockets. SO SAD! Imagine if an alien ship was watching and deciding if we were worth saving. What would they actually see as they studied us? If you were them, what would you do?

    Everything seems to increase in price on a daily basis.
    With the discovery of oil in N.D and the statement it will make the U.S more self sufficient. I ask why is the price of energy rising instead of falling?

    Obama promised us more expensive energy even before he was President! He also new at the time that no one was happy with that idea! But he is determined to make this a socialist country, and this is one of the ways to do it.
    I’m worried about all the people that will be suffering.

    Obama promised in his campaign speeches that the price of energy would go sky high. And, of course, that goes along with his Socialist plan.

    Knowing full well that this is an economic newsletter that focuses on money, but making coal cleaner – or in some cases eliminating old burners altogether – is for health reasons: coal firing emission are toxic. If you don’t believe me, try living (and breathing) near a coal fired plant of any sort.
    It’s time to begin reframing discussions regarding economics, health (physical & mental), responsibility, sensibility and morality regarding energy. To think of energy ONLY in financial reflection is myopic. My late father, an M.D., always reminded me, “If you don’t have your health, you have nothing.” Let’s rebalance the discussion of coal to take on more angles than just the cost of electrical power.

    Obama has and continues to ruin this once great nation. He will not be happy until we are all working for China in their coal mines as slaves. We need to start organizing a march on Washington demanding his impeachment.

    Obama is just the head of the organization that is dedicated to tearing down America. It is companies like Progressive Insurance, owned by a friend of George Soros, and all the companies owned by other Democrats that support the Democrat party that make up this organization. It includes the unions and “moderate” Republicans like McCain, McConnell and Boehner. Supporting any of them is like sticking a knife in the back of Liberty.

    From the 19 APR, 1974 issue of “Science” – – – “To feed the entire world with a U.S. type food system, almost 80 percent of the world’s annual energy expenditure would be required just for the food system.” To my knowledge this has not changed significantly to the present time. Our use of energy is sloppy, hazardous to our health and economy, and a livable environment.

    Past Obama’s lying flapper, he’s doing it as payback for his radical crony enviro campaign contributors like the Sierra Club. He doesn’t care about the economic impacts from what he campaigned on the flawed issued of ‘climate change’. The political, industrial, bureaucratic complex needs the green grease to keep on spewing, the lying rhetoric that is.

    For all the hype, the new EPA regs will are expected to only reduce the dangerous, toxic CO2 by 1.8% by 2030 at an economic cost of $51 billion per year but I suspect the impacts will be more severe.

    B.O. should be impeached, not only for constitutional violations, but for lying his arse off to the public at large. All his crony friends should be banned to a Greenland prison, after all, they keep on claiming that Greenland is getting greener with all the melting going on. And put the prison colony next to the seas so they can fret over the slow rising of the seas. “Oh God, it’s come up another 4 millimeters, we’re all going to drown!”

    This is a clear message that the antiquated energy grid is going to get more expensive. Be prepared and learn alternative ways to provide energy to your home and family. . Be self sustaining with solar and wind energy. Think about how much power it takes to get power to your home through this antiquated energy system. If one wants to stay with outdated old ways of the last century, they will pay. Wake up people.

    Obama has the future generations in mind when he is enacting new regulations to curb green house gases. Unless we soften the blow of climate change, the sea side dwellers are going to find themselves in water.

    Focus fusion is the way to go. 6 plants, the size of a 1 car garage, can produce enough power for U.S., Canada, Alaska, forget Mexico. 2 cents a kilowatt. It burns boron and hydrogen emissions. Helium, which is contained in a tank, safe and clean, no fossil fuel. Three 8 hour shifts, no pollution. Its all a big hoax with coal, oil, and atomic, which is the most dangerous. Focus fusion of Princeton, NJ.
