A war on idiocy is exactly what's needed.

Besides, the Union Pacific and the Burlington Northern Railroads will derail Obama's idiocy.

Coal is an abundant resource that we should continue to exploit until a marketable, cheap replacement becomes available. Reasonable regulations on what can be emitted into the environment makes sense. As for Mark's comment on mileage, he makes a good point. A 2010 Honda Civic has a combined fuel economy of 29 MPG while the 1992 Honda Civic had a combined 38. Market has driven this. "Make it just a little bigger" "This car would be great with just a bit more HP". We need a cheap, reliable car that will get 40+ on the highway again. Other car's have been regulated out of existence. A 1984 Volkswagen Rabbit diesel would get 40 MPG on the highway all day for many years. If I had to guess, emissions regulations would make it impossible to produce this car today.

"Coal remains by far the most economical way of generating power."

Natural gas is much cheaper. That should sum up the article's validity for discerning readers.

"or still manufacturing incandescent light bulbs.etc...but old lobbies die hard"

A lobby is what brought about this prohibition. Or are some lobbies good and others not, as I suspect?

Oblamer's war on coal is the first step. Next will be a war on fracking for natural gas. I find it simply amazing how the "progressives" are now promoting natural gas which is recovered by fracking which will be the next war. The "progressives" are already on record as against "fracking". As for the moron who made the comment about "sunlight being free", ya shure ya betcha sunshine, let's see you get warmed up by it when it's 20 below.
