    Energy speech

    Just heard the President's energy speech. Two points regarding coal:
    1. EPA will put a carbon tax on new AND OLD utility plants.
    2. US will help developing countries convert to natural gas.

    • So what if a carbon tax is applied? There is no way that all the coal fired generators can be replaced quickly with natural gas fired plants..and the utilities will pass the tax along to consumers..what you are going to have in my opinion is a gradual shift out of coal in the USA but NRP is shifting out as well as is far as teaching developing counties to use natural gas, let's laugh...there's no infrastructure,no generating facilities,zip, think Obama can get the USA to give developing countries the $billions required????? Obama will be gone in 3 years..and no way will President Hillary continue this insanity..she needs the coal states to get elected and the united mine workers and other unions to keep her in the White House.

    • This is a pipe dream, who's going to fund it? Not congress, that's for sure....
