The Sierra Club’s suit of Luminant’s Big Brown Steam Electric plant when the EPA elects not to sue may be a sign of the future. It also seems that Sierra Club is suing over the way they wish the rules to be instead of the way the rules are written. Continue reading
Foundations using money from business interests to campaign against those donor’s competition? Shocking. Imagine such deviousness.
Fred Singer finds another .
People in countries such as Pakistan, where poverty really does mean starving to death (one of the very positive things about the US is that no one, aside from the occasional “outlier” that can never be completely cleared, does so), are avidly looking at developing their coal resources.

It is hard for me to quantify the gratitude I have for Craign Rucker and the work of CFACT.
EPA’s proposed regulations on new power plants will make it nearly impossible to construct a new coal plant in the United States.
If promulgated, these regulations will raise the price of electricity and potentially cause brownouts, while having no meaningful impact on world temperatures.
At the same time the U.S. is strangling electricity from coal, China, India and even Germany are increasing their coal use. To truly understand the futility of these destructive regulations, consider this: China added the equivalent of all U.S. coal plants in just five years, 2005-2009. From 2010-2013 it added half that much again.
How’s that for a carbon offset?
CFACT senior policy analyst Bonner Cohen presented testimony today at an EPA hearing on its proposed new power plant regulations in Washington, D.C. You can read his full testimony at CFACT.org.
The Obama administration’s war on coal is a disaster in the making for the U.S. economy.
People need to learn the straight facts. CFACT is on the job.
For nature and people too,
Licorice smelling and tasting alcohol used as a foaming agent for processing coal and making it fit for transport, got into the water supply from a spill that went into the Elk River, running Northeast of Charleston, West Virginny. Coal Country for sure.
Much hand wringing–but no risk apparent.
Tim Ball is an environmental scientist of great repute and on the front lines of the battle with the green thugs.
He asserts that the Coal industry has to start fighting back. No doubt, they have been mugged and dragged for providing affordable clean electricity. Damn shame such a fine bunch of people would suffer from the eco politics arrayed against the coal production and electricity generation business.
