There are reams of studies done that show the amount of natural gas (methane, which has 6X the heat-trapping effect of CO2) that leaks during fracking and drilling makes natural gas actually slightly worse, in terms of greenhouse gases, than low-sulpher coal burning. This gets conveniently overlooked.
There is no such thing as clean coal, total fiction! If coal is regulated and coal fired plants are forced into emission standards that make it clean it becomes too expensive! Game over! By the way wind and solar have zero emissions!:) By the way you can capture the methane gas from fracking if it is regulated!:)
A. Anyone who believes all US cold-fired plants will be shut down in 18 months is a fool.
B. Let's assume you're right, then plan on HUGE price increases and rationing of electricity. No more 24/7 internet access.
C. What is the primary energy source of US electricity that allowed you to send your moronic message? I can't stand hypocrites......
where is congress???? it is congresses responsibility to pass legislation and to make laws .... the king of the ussa will bypass congress with his worn out use of going thru the back door of congress and using his hacks at the epa and other agencies to pass his agenda which is an executive order without represention
