November 24, 2013

Not a peep from this newspaper about the fatality at the Century Mine yesterday. Shame on you.

“hundreds of stormwater discharge permits similar to”

…similar to a request to taint the Captina (Ohio’s highest-scored watershed as to biotic integrity) and its tributaries?…REALLY? …need your proof

I say just ‘cause the chief of the division of surface water for Ohio EPA for over 30 years was pressured to resign by Kasich because he would NOT, in his words

“accommodate the industry’s needs by issuing permits that may have a negative impact on Ohio’s streams and wetlands and violate state and federal laws”

…doesn’t mean that robber coal barons are now feeling above-the-law-impatient toward an EPA preliminary opinion that finds intent to operate outside of requirements of the nation’s Clean Water Act.

How dare a government agent reserve the right to specify guidelines by Jan 5th!!!

This rag's coverage of coal issues, when they cover them at all, does seem a little Murray-centric. Maybe it's just that he's a local figure of note who's somehow managed to get them to focus their limited attention span. Good for him, but it's kind of a shame for the coal biz in general. WVU, for instance, has in more recent years accomplished some amazing things relative to Coal; but, not a peep about any of it here. WVU has helped China establish a broad industry that converts Coal into Gasoline and Diesel. And, in "US Patent Application 20120228150 - CO2 Decomposition", WVU disclosed a way in which Carbon Dioxide, captured from whatever source, and Water can be broken down into Carbon Monoxide, Hydrogen and Oxygen, with the CO and H2 then being available for the synthesis of hydrocarbon fuels via the Fischer-Tropsch process that Germany operated on a large scale in WWII to make gasoline and diesel out of Coal.

(CNSNews****) - The price of electricity hit a record for the month of October, according to data released Wednesday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That made October the eleventh straight month when the average price of electricity hit or matched the record level for that month.

The average price of electricity in October was 13.2 cents per kilowatt hour (KWH), up from 12.8 cents per KWH in October 2012—and up from 9.3 cents per KWH in October 2003.

Americans now pay 42 percent more for electricity than they did a decade ago."

Thanks Barry :(!

I notice the article admits it has no facts just "possibilities". So this is right wing journalism. No facts, just assuming. Just like all the other right wing journalists.

So RockE, is an opinion from a disgruntled former employee, a smear with an unrelated operation at a far-away location, and some babble about “robber coal barons” all you have? Yep.

And is shutting down a private business with no explanation other than “maybe we’ll grace you with an explanation in a few months” business as usual for the Obama Regime? Yep.

"a smear with an unrelated operation at a far-away location"????

as per, cluelessness equates to comprehensibility somewhere below 0 on the scale of..

"and some babble...all you have? Yep."

...self-efficacy test complete

...shutting down a private business with no explanation other than “maybe ..."???

...thus... the resident drama queen has graced us in all her magniloquent grace on a Sunday.

Murray not only runs his mouth he finances anti administration candidates. He is a target. He will be an even bigger one with his new acquisitions. He is an obstacle the pro-climate movement now in favor.

Look for a massive national Democratic backing for Gainer.

wraith :the cheapest/cleanest electric is nuke. The nuke accidents have actually advanced engineering a great deal; just as plane crashed have done with planes. If you want low price, nuke is the way.

The politics of it all is much much blacker than coal itself.

Obama needs just 3 more years to "finish the job".

Yes, Obama has his job but millions have lost their job under his administration and counterproductive idiotic policies.

EPA is troubling but even more troubling is the most double-minded unstable character living in the White House.

Just when you thought it can't get more ridiculous:

Only weeks after the Environmental Protection Agency effectively banned 80 percent of the wood-burning stoves money-saving Americans use to heat their homes, the attorneys general of seven states are suing to force the agency to crack down on wood-burning water heaters.

The suit argues that the oldest heating method known to man – and a mainstay of poor, rural homes – is a health hazard,according to CNS News. .

The lawsuit, filed last month by the attorneys general of Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island and Vermont – Democrats all, obviously – demands that the EPA start regulating the heaters. The plaintiffs claim the devices “increase particle pollution to levels that cause significant health concerns,” according to CNS News.

Suing the EPA to get stricter about regulation is like suing Joe Biden to say something stupid,
