    Right wingnuts breathe the same air and drink the same weater as liberals.
    How do you know this is causing irrepairable damage to the environment? Because the EPA says so?

    No, environmentalist care about the air we breathe and the water we drink. Shutting down this mine will not lead to one more drop of oil imported. Other coal mining companies will gladly increase their profits and make up the difference by hiring more people and mining more coal. You do know this isn't the only coal mine in the country, don't you?

    Yes, because of the studies and the research they have done. I just thank God that all republicans aren't like you or we would be as polutted as China where there isn't an EPA.

    Let's see that research. I hope it wasn't done by some of the same people that say global warming is real.

    It was Nixon that started the EPA because of scenes like this:

    Firefighters battle a fire on Ohio's Cuyahoga River in 1952. The polluted river caught fire on several occasions between 1936 and 1969, when debris and oil had concentrated on the water's surface and ignited. A blaze in 1969 came at a time of increasing environmental awareness and symbolized years of environmental neglect. The Cuyahoga River fires helped spur grassroots activism that resulted in a wave of federal legislation devoted to taking serious action against air and water pollution.

    Your mentality would lower living standards even more through more health problems and shorter lives. A clean environment is one of the most important aspects of quality of life and standard of living.

    Oh never mind.

    You're right and we'd probably have a field day if it ever happened. It might be worth it though to see someone flip-flop to that extent.

    So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; itís just that it will bankrupt them because theyíre going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas thatís being emitted.
    That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches.

    What they think might happen through studies, research and past experience. It really is better to be safe than sorry in this case. The jobs will just be shifted to other coal mines.

    That's their goal, to make it incredibly tough to make a profit, and when that happens... who the hell will continue with the business.

    The eco-freaks have gone way to far... and of course this helps us with energy independence. Drill in hard to get areas... close down drilling in those areas, shut down the coal industry.

    Idiocy. Pure unadulterated idiocy.
