Supporting Coal

March 27, 2014

COAL IS no longer king in the Ohio Valley. It could be, but government restrictions have reduced the mining industry into a shell of its former might....

It is time that we hold our representatives accountable and responsible for the Obama Administration, it's policies towards coal and the EPA and it extreme and unreasonable approach to coal.

Senator Brown of Ohio , Where are you ???????

R and D residents of this area must lay aside political beliefs and flood Mr. Brown's offices with their displeasure. His recent trip to Cadiz, no one and I mean no one held him accountable or even challenged his positions on coal. Sad. that is why we let our representatives take advantage of us. Mr. Brown is NOT a friend of Eastern Ohio whether you are Democrat or Republican. Sadly, he was reelected to the Senate in 12 with much support from this area.

It's 2014. Coal's time has passed. The future is solar, wind and hydro power. The sooner we leave fossil fuels behind, the better off the world will be.

If there was no money in scraping that crap out of the ground the fools could not care less. Go learn how to do something besides digging holes.

Coal burning power plants in the USA produce 130 million tons of toxic coal ash every year. A person exposed to coal ash is 9 times more likely of getting cancer than cigarette smokers. The idiots will do or say anything for a dollar.

Here's my spin on this...I believe that destroying coal is another part of the conspiracy to destroy our Nation....Control the energy..Control the nation. Do away with coal and coal produced power. Ever wonder where all the money is coming from the make the oil and gas boom? I do..I also, through good sources know that oil and gas leases were being sold to China by Chesapeake. Or maybe Obama is meeting with Saudi Arabians today on our dime to give a progress report. Right now Russia has the Ukraine by the short hairs because they control the energy. Very soon we will be in the same boat...Wake up!!

No takers on my bet on energy. Have first hand knowledge of solar. Works well near where energy is needed and where the sun is put. Storage over time a big issue. wind will never play a major roll in generating electricity. It is a supplement source only. Hydro can provide some but on a limited basis. Please take time to research the issues and not rely on wind and solar companies who have their agenda.

There's good ol' Oluh again, degrading the men who risk their lives in the mines daily to provide for their families and yours. Real classy to say they should learn to do something else besides dig holes. What's next? Are you going to tell a soldier, Marine or sailor to learn to do something else besides defend our country? Real brave behind that keyboard, aren't ya?? I bet if my miner friends read that or heard you make such a disrespectful comment you wouldn't have the ability to type.

What a shame it is that so many of you forget how hard those men work and how very important what they do is to you. Complete disrespect, so ungrateful, absolutely disgusting....

Coal mining pays my bills and provides for my family. They don't "dig holes" you moron. And fossil fuel, wind power etc is all garbage. Many of the wind powered turbines use regular electricity (created by coal) to move them. They're mainly for show. And you obviously have power. You can thank my husband for that. Go hug a tree.

And the reality is, if our mines aren't used for our own power in the near future it will be sold and shipped to china. Good job 'merica

Ask Prime Minister Abe why Japan is planning to ramp up coal-fired plants. It's simple economics really. "We can import coal from politically stable countries, and its prices are very competitive," said Hiroya Harada, general manager of Tohoku Electric Power Co.'s Tokyo branch. He spoke at a news conference Thursday where Tohoku Electric said it would seek contracts for 1.2 gigawatts of fossil-fuel-fired power, half of which it expects to come from coal.

Thanks to all the miners, their families, and related industries who produce coal. Please remember the politicians who have supported the Obama Administration And EPA for its standards.

You may need to cross Party lines but go vote and be heard.............

Dear oluhjnb, Well, we all see you first calling coal miners "idiots" and "fools" -- shall we quote the date and time? It was today, prior to anyone else challenging you. Then, you want to cite (without using proper punctuation, I may add) another person as being stupid. I will bet you probably do not have any education higher than a high school diploma, and at that, I might be stretching the assumption. If you were well-educated and well-read, then you might be familiar with the following article, from Bloomberg, entitled Coal Burns Brighter as Utilities Switch from Natural Gas, which contains citations and support of research showing that natural gas costs five times as much to burn as coal and also emits high amounts toxins without remedy. The news article is dated February 14, 2014. Look it up. Does this make you look stupid? I sure as*****think so. Read it, and get back with us. Get your head out of the hole we dug. ;)

P.S. oluhjnb --

My knuckles hung a PhD on my wall. Shall I photograph it and send it to you? And my four-carat diamond ring, purchased for my from my coal miner husband, didn't get a scratch from all that knuckle dragging. My 4,500 square foot house is warm and my bank account is full. You have too much time to insult others online. Get a life and some sense.

A diamond has a hardness of 10 on a scale of 10 known as Mohs Hardness Scale. A diamond can scratch any other mineral and only a diamond can scratch a diamond. No wonder your ring, "...didn't get a scratch from all that knuckle dragging." Hahaha, you are a load of BS.

Hey Oluh, when you quoted me on March 28th, I wasn't threatening or bullying you. I was merely stating a fact. Then again, you don't know what facts are do you? You tend to fling and spew crap everywhere and hope that someone will actually agree with you...oh wait, BCF always does! #PerfectCouple
