2012 May Environment & Climate News: EPA Aims to Kill Coal
Hi All,
If memory serves me correctly nearly 50% of America's electricity is generated from coal, so the below rather grabbed my attention..

" The May issue of Environment & Climate News reports on an Environmental Protection Agency proposal that would effectively ban the construction of coal-fired power plants. "

All issues of Environment & Climate News are archived here:

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety)
by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

H. L. Mencken.  

The hobgoblins have to be imaginary so that
"they" can offer their solutions, not THE solutions.
Quote:In 2007, US EPA chief, Michael T. Eckhart was exposed as authoring an email threatening to “destroy” the career of a climate sceptic. In April this year, a senior Obama-appointee to the EPA boasted that the agency’s “philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of US energy producers – the people without whom all modern society would grind to a halt, by the way.

It might be better to let the EPA carry through with this madness to finally wake up the lazy minded voters who have been falling down as a rational voter for a long time.

It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor must preside at our assemblies.

–William O. Douglas, U.S. Supreme Court Justice, 1952
