I can just imagine how impressed President Obama will be when he receives Attorney General Morrison's letter. How fortunate we are to have a well-respected, black-hearted, right-wing extremist able to persuade our President to grant his coal company contributors emancipation. Charlie Ballouz has more influence with President Obama than our xenophobic, carpet-baggng, Attorney Corporal.

So, in Patrick Morrisey's world "ethics" are defined by what's best for corporations, not people.

I gues I see it like this

EPA do your job without political persuasion. Just report the facts, and base your agenda on the real impact of industrial processes in your district.

ie. The Follansbee Coke plant, on a warm summers day with the wind in the right direction when I leave my home in the morning north of Wierton I can smell the benzene bombarding my bodies cells. Yet you are able to function with ill intentions to the people in this community. You have spent zero $ to remedy this.

Coal fired power plants in this area have spent $millions on emmission equip. and are being slated to be shut down.

What gives?

President Obama has no more regard for WV than the carpet under his feet and anyone who thinks differently is goofy. This President only deals with certain segments of the population and certain areas, the rest of us are just dirt to him. Coal can have a role in the energy answer and certainly gas is the best answer that can really help us bridge the gap from fossil to alternative energy. But Obama is not really doing anything about much of anything, he just barks and runs back and forth for interest groups or voting blocks, domestic and foreign. Isn't it odd that in his zeal for clean energy, the cleanest fossil fuel, gas, is also his target, and he never mentions hydro which is the most reliable and proven non fossil fuel. The UMWA supports Obama. How funny is that? I am a moderate Dem but can admit that there is nothing more pathetic than a Dem trying to convince people (or themselves) that Obama is somehow good for WV. So sad its kinda funny.

PAnow, the coal fired plants in which the respective power companies have invested millions are NOT slated for shut down. It's the older out-moded plants that are being closed, and many for reasons other than the EPA. This whole war on coal thing is just a farce created by right wing losers who are furious that there is still a black man in the White House.

Until you understand Agenda21, you should not make comments about the EPA...They work for Obama, (SHADOW GOVERNMENT.)and the UN .. They redistribute US wealth to other countries.. There is nothing wrong about cleaning up the state, but this a front for the United nations... Edu yourself and read about Agenda 21..There is a lot of info on the internet...God Bless
