Obama Focused Like A Laser On Jobs

The “war on coal” has five new casualties.  A lawsuit brought by environmental groups has forced the shutdown of five Indiana coal-fired power plants by 2018, totalling 668 megawatts of power.  Duke Energy announced that it would retire five coal plants as part of a settlement reached with the Sierra Club and other environmental groups in a dispute over a clean air permit Duke was issued by the state of Indiana for its new coal-gasification plant in the southwestern part of the state. The five plants will be retired by 2018.

The Sierra Club then explained that massively reducing the supply of energy will lower prices.

“While today’s settlement is a step in the right direction, more must be done to ensure that Hoosier families are protected from rising energy bills and the enormous health threats posed by Indiana’s reliance on coal-fired power plants,” said Jodi Perras with the Sierra Club’s anti-coal campaign.

    They are shutting down coal using CO2 and trying to shut down oil using fracing. People better start pulling their collective heads out of their collective asses. If the environmentalists have their way, the price of gasoline at the pump would be magnitudes higher than what it is now, and the price of electricity would be ten-fold. All this based on lies. And like the communists taught the environmentalists, tell a lie enough times and it becomes the truth.

    So they force industry to places that have lower pollution standards and fewer controls. The industry moves to China or Brazil or India or even Mexico where the power plants are dirtier. By shutting down these plants, the Sierra Club is going to make the air dirtier than it otherwise would be. They should be arguing for the opposite. They should be demanding that more modern coal and nuclear plants be built so that energy would be more abundant and the price declines drawing business away from dirty sources of power to cleaner sources. Instead they are doing the opposite. How much is China paying those people?
