    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.

    Did you know that Cap and Trade was invented by conservative republicans?
    And if Reagan hadn't scrapped Carters energy policies we would be energy independent right now.

    What you people fail to realize that if the EPA lets this company operate without following the EPA recommendations taxpayers will eventually have to pay for the clean up. It has already cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars to clean up messes created by businesses that were more worried about profits than people.

    If Reagan hadn't scrapped the syn-fuel idiocy, we would be riding horses, right now.

    This appears not to be about the permit, but about the Obama admin going after mountain top mining because they don't like it.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Thats a bunch of BS. It was just a small part of Carters policies. Conservation was the key to his programs. Oil companies profits were starting to suffer due to Carters conservation policies. Reagan came to their rescue and trashed all of Carters policies.

    So you support the mining company ignoring the EPA to increase profits and then letting taxpayers clean up the mess later?

    Carter's energy policies were so awesome in their awesomeness, that the market took the ball and ran with it. Oh, wait.

    Oil companies profits were starting to suffer due to Carters conservation policies.
    Now, explain to us how government intervention in the market, killing profits a good thing?

    I want the EPA shut down personally so I'm biased. However in this case the Obama Admin is going AFTER mountain top mining, thus the over zealous application of regulation.
