Enviro-Kommie from Harvard decides we need to crush the coal business and raise electric costs?????
Daniel P. Schrag, a White House climate adviser and director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment, tells the New York Times "a war on coal is exactly what's needed." Later today, President Obama will give a major "climate change" address at Georgetown University.
“Everybody is waiting for action,” Schrag tells the paper. “The one thing the president really needs to do now is to begin the process of shutting down the conventional coal plants. Politically, the White House is hesitant to say they’re having a war on coal. On the other hand, a war on coal is exactly what’s needed.”
Obama's speech today is expected to offer "a sweeping plan to address climate change on Tuesday, setting ambitious goals and timetables for a series of executive actions to reduce greenhouse gas pollution and prepare the nation for the ravages of a warming planet," according to the Times.
Here's the full context of Schrag's quotation:
Daniel P. Schrag, a geochemist who is the head of Harvard University’s Center for the Environment and a member of a presidential science panel that has helped advise the White House on climate change, said he hoped the presidential speech would mark a turning point in the national debate on climate change.
I wonder if these brain dead liberals are going to vacation in the coal mining states and show the people how to build solar power generaters. Theres going to be a whole lot of hanging going on!
Much better than the Repukes war on women, how are the repukes going to gain the women vote should be the topic of discussion, not coal, the dirtiest fuel on the planet, except if you used wingnuts for fuel.
