Accelerating War on Coal

January 22, 2013

It should have come as no surprise that President Barack Obama used his inauguration address to whip up more support for his campaign against the coal industry....

The NR's position-trying to cling to the 19th Century past- demonstrates the reason Wheeling has declined to alarming lows. It was largly the principals of the Paper who promoted the squandering of tens of millions(from Byrd) on Downtown Historical Theme Park concepts vs embracing new tech employment opportunities to benefit the City.Now the money and the buildings are both gone with nothing to show.Trying to cling to the past ve looking to the future does not work.(Recall McKinley's platform was steel jobs.)

I sweep the coal dust from my front porch every morning and sprinkle it over my cereal.

I grew up in coal town. My grandfather died of black lung. I certainly don't miss all of that nasty coal dust all over my porch, house and everything else like it used to be. Don't miss it.

Something else Chu, as a Nobel Prize winning Energy Secretary should know is that production of concrete produces enormous quantities of CO2. So conversion of all roads from blacktop to cement would produce large additional quantities of that greenhouse gas. Currently concrete production accounts for 8% of all man-made CO2. Can you imagine how much more CO2 would be produced if we resurfaced ALL the roads in concrete? Maybe Chu needs to rethink some of his brilliant “ideas.” Like his ridiculous wish for gasoline prices in America to increase to match prices in Europe.

Obama can sure pick some winners, eh Goosy? What a loon. LOL

Goosy, Energy Secretary Chu suggested cement-style pavement for roads instead of blacktop style pavement, and replacing all the roofs with white roofs, and converting to white limousines. You can hear him say it here.

w ww.youtube.c om/watch?v=pLlxjYACa5U

This is actually MORE ludicrous than using white paint, as it would cost far more than white paint and would be equally irrelevant as far as global temperature is concerned.

I found that video as the third item of the google search results of “steven chu paint roads white.” I’ll let daWraith decide how he wants to ridicule you for not being able to find this for yourself, since you were so rabid in your rant about him. Have fun, daWraith. LOL

duhhRAT, A LIAR, yesterday, today and tomorrow. I hate LIARS. Lowest scum on earth. SO TELL US NOSTRADUMAZZ the source of your post "Energy Secretary Nobel Prize winner Steven Cho suggested several years ago a solution to Global Warming would be to “paint the highways WHITE to reflect the sunlight(!!)” "Most suggested that he was an IDIOT, you couldn’t see them in snow and you would slide off in rain or snow."

REALLY? LIAR! Now, I know you won't provide a source because you can't. Cho never suggested painting the highways. As you do everyday, SCUM, you seem to be just a LIAR.

Your propagandizing efforts on behalf of coal interests may confuse the general public but holds no sway over the larger forces, for which we all must abide; mainly scientific laws. Midas was enriched temporarily by his greed, but soon felt the sting of his own poison. Likewise, the spectacle of commodification of the natural world will usher in mans ruin.

FreeWheeling, farther down in that four-year old NYT article: “Fortunately, 18 states have laws or regulations requiring mercury reductions at coal-fired power plants. And in four states — Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey and Delaware — a number of plants have already deployed new control technologies. The G.A.O., which studied 25 boilers at 14 plants with advanced technologies, found that, in some cases, mercury emissions had been reduced by as much as 90 percent....”

So, as I said, the power companies are cleaning up their act. 90% reduction brings your outdated figure down by a factor of almost 10. So why are you still babbling four-year-old numbers? Because they’re better propaganda? Yep.

And, as I said, mercury has NOTHING to do with acid rain. So why would you anti-coal types tell lies like “acid rain ... can contaminate fish with mercury”? Because mercury is scarier? Yep.

Ugly****:"being that we haven't had a real winter around here in quite some time some one is correct"

Uuuh hey dummy this is the coldest week since Feb. 2009.

WTF Global Warming? China has had the coldest winter in 28 years.

Even Phil Jones, the guru of global warming data fraud, admitted there has NOT BEEN any evidence of it in the past 15 years.

Just a Fraud to make money for the Al Gores of the world, and money come from dumb ****s like you.

Troll: From THE NY TIMES..."Mercury is a toxin that has been found in increasingly high concentrations in fish and poses human health risks, including neurological disorders in children. The nation’s coal-fired power plants produce 48 tons of it a year, a little more than 40 percent of the total mercury emitted in the United States." However, since you have turned your back on science, believe what you want. If your neighbor's septic system drained onto your property would you be concerned? LOL

Troll, I agree. Power companies are already spending billions of dollars on power plant upgrades to get rid of real pollutants like SOx, NOx, and Hg and they are doing a great job of it.

CO2 must NOT be lumped in with real "pollutants". The science is absolutely NOT settled. CO2 is necessary for life.

Climate is always changing. There is nothing we can or should do to try and stop it. We are just too ignorant. I would rather live in a period of warming rather than cooling.

Warm = good.

Cold = death.

More CO2 = More green and more food.

Look up Newsweek article from 1972. Scientists concerned about global cooling and a new ice age.

FreeWheeling, I did find it amusing you were quoting an Ogden source. Must have been quite difficult for you. LOL

I also noticed you missed the following sentence from that article: “[Adirondack Council spokesman John Sheehan] said pollution is decreasing because of federal regulations on coal plants...” So the coal industry is cleaning up their act, yet you loons continue in your efforts to “bankrupt them.”

Another interesting statement from the article: “Sheehan said although acid rain won't hurt people swimming, it can contaminate fish with mercury...” I’d be interested in the unique chemistry that creates mercury from acid. Apparently the “acid rain” argument wasn’t scary enough to make the point, so the REALLY scary although technically unrelated “mercury” argument was muddled in to raise the hype level. Dishonest and unprofessional at best.

Troll: Enough is getting through so that NYS must take actions to reduce acidity levels in the Adirondak Lakes. Since I read this in a Leader Herald editorial, also owned by Ogden Nwspapers, it must be true.

under the ice north Greenland was found the remains of plant life that grew before the Vikings lived there..Gee how did that growth happen? maybe the coal fired power plants caused some global warming thousands of yrs ago? oops..no coal burning then?

Global warming? Is this really anything new? What caused global warming after the last Ice Age? Couldn't have been mankinds co2. If so, how? Here's an idea about as crazy as Al gore's..Why not use the space program to launch giant shields into orbit. To block out the suns rays from coming to earth. try regulation of these rays by a computer in Washington DC. this way our Govt. can be in complete controlof everything. If one area of the country doesn't comply to the wishes of DC, they just pull the shield and let them burn up...the liberal agenda will be complete...I'm thinking someone being paid by our Govt taxes is already thinking up crap like this...costs of any liberal agenda doesn't matter..we can just print mo money
