August 2, 2013

New Environmental Protection Agency head Gina McCarthy made it clear recently where she stands on the war on coal: She is in denial and wants other Americans to share her refusal to accept the trut....

Adkkev, you're hugging the wrong tree and you have it exactly backwards. It's the GOVT. that does not have our best interests in mind otherwise Keystone and the utilization our abundance of NG resources would be a 'go' benefiting all Americans. In case nobody has told you, business's including NG Company's are in business to make money so stop complaining about them and start asking why we keep sending billions of $ to middle eastern country's who hate us when we no longer have to and why our current liberal Govt. does not want to be energy independent after belly aching for years that we need to be, or do you guys only screech about it when there's a Republican in office only to have the environmental whacko wing of the democrat party deny their every attempt to do so???

TOT, if you let them, liberals will babble on at length about how man made global warming is causing the cold weather. You are required to suspend all disbelief and common sense to keep your head from exploding.

if you think that the folks who want to frack for natural gas are doing it for American consumers, you are all wrong. They can make more money by selling it overseas & that's why the major gas companies want to build large gas installations at ports along the eastern and southern seaboard. They do not have our interests in mind at all.

You know, its ironic that the same liberals who have been shouting for YEARS that we need to free America from dependence on foreign oil are the very same liberals who, now given a chance to do exactly that, are against everything from Natural Gas to Coal to Nuclear. Then again, these are the same liberals who, thirty years ago were screaming about global COOLING. Never take a liberal serious, they're not.

"scientists who have facts showing that the globe warming faster than at any time in history". Those have to some pretty old dudes to have data going back to the beginning of history dave. Remember folks liberal 'history' and 'facts' are whatever they make up to support their dialog at the time and we're supposed to blindly accept their foolishness. Winter, Summer, hot today, cool tonight; climate changes constantly dave, humans have NOTHING to do with it, but the SUN does. Since liberals cant control the sun, you and your phoney 'scientists' and bigfoot need to have a beer and beef jerky summit to figure out what to do next. The ONLY reason liberals push man-made global warming is because there's money to be made on other witless people who they can bully into believing something that does not exist. They got to you dave since you're spending time and money to regurgitate their fraud while using a keyboard made of the dreaded petroleum powered by energy you hate. Yup, usefu

Loyal, "So we should continue to use what little natural resources we have ...." In case you missed it , we have more resources that we could use in hundreds of years. The tree huggers would rather have us dependent of foreign supplies than utilize our own stuff because a gnat's habitat could be disturbed

OK Dave, here we go again. There are publications on BOTH sides of the argument. YOU chose to ignore some as do we. In the end it is all speculation. ALL ANYONE'S GUESS! You chose the wrong side again that's all!

MrBob, people like you and TOT read an opinion article written by one man and take it as gospel because it fall in line with what you believe, but you choose to ignore 98% of scientists who have facts showing that the globe warming faster than at any time in history. And you compare science to cartoons? Amazing.

Well dave, lets see, global warming/cooling has been going on since the planet was formed but all of a sudden WE are partly to blame??? Some fat slob on TV or in a movie tells you its our fault and you believe him. How naive of you. When I was a kid I watched Heckle and Jeckle on TV but I grew up and still don't think crows can talk. Seems to me that you do.

Good point. Natural gas is cheap and plentiful... progressives do not want us to get that either. Progressives do not want us to have any fuels at all!

Conservatives looking for a bailout?? Are you on this planet? Dems Favor Federal Bailout of Detroit, But Majority of Public Opposed. They spread money like a farmers honey wagon and if a single piece falls near a working man a liberal will point and yell. Nice!

The so-called "war on coal" began with the Clean Air Act signed way back under Nixon, and which gained strength under Bush. Also, the coal industry's main problem is natural gas...cheaper and cleaner. Just another poorly researched article from the LH editorial staff.

"why can't our government fund a scientific program to finally figure out how to make coal cleaner burning"??

Why do conservatives always look to the government to bail them out. How about if we let our capitalist system work. Corporations can do their own scientific research on how to make coal cleaner burning. Or how about if corporations do what we all do to lower our utility bills- energy efficiency.

Keep in mind WHY burning coal is bad- carbon emissions and it's effect on global warming. Now, if you don't believe global warming is at least in part caused by man's burning of fossil fuels, then there's no discussion here. But if you do, then alternatives to burning fossil fuel makes sense, including nuclear power.

Burn more coal? Are you kidding? Destroy more fishing spots, Do you nuts want the whole chain of lakes empty of recreation, and fishing. Just for the money, these billion dollar company corps can profit.

Actually there are quite a few people in Fulton County that know what an investment is. There are even a few that know the difference between a good one and a bad one. Some even know enough to stop throwing good money after bad.

Pards13, sometimes it takes money to start saving money. it's called an investment. I know, I know, it's Fulton County and not many people know what that means.

Loyal. I for one have no problem funding research in alternate energy. I do have a problem funding the manufacture and installation of such technology.

I agree, we should cut military spending by at least 50% if not more. We could also stop supporting the Muslim Brotherhood as well as all other foreign aid.

Sound like a plan. Let's turn out the lights, pay lots of $$ to Solyndra (spelling?). Hey let's check with Al and his buddies in the middle east. May be we can get a visa to go there, oh right they are closed due to a terrorism holiday. I'm all for alternative energy but I don't want to go broke getting there.

So we should continue to use what little natural resources we have because it's easier than developing green technology? How about we give NASA a bit more funding to continue research on alternative energy instead of spending that money on making more bombs and expanding an already bloated military?
