This means Obama wants to provide even more grants to some solar cell manufacturing firm funded by Kleiner Perkins (Al Gore is a partner in Kleiner Perkins). Remember the 2.1 billion grant a couple of days back?

Horsepoop! Coal does NOT "cause" asthma. We really don't know the cause. It appears in high IQ kids in greater numbers, and in the poor population. Does intelligence cause it? Does welfare and food stamps cause it?

Asthma attacks can be "triggered" by pollutants, or fresh paint, or new carpets, or spring flowers. But they don't "cause" the asthma itself.

Another interesting thing is that asthma diagnoses have gone up in recent decades as smoking rates have decreased. You'd think the opposite would be true.

So, does he alienate anybody with this? Other than everybody involved in the coal industry. Electricity consumers.

Slugs?

Just think of all the asthmatic kids we are creating in China (sarc)

We are shipping our coal there as fast as it can be hauled

Take a look at this
http://www.hometownannapolis.com/news/col/2011/04/18-20/The-Watchdog-Whats-up-with-all-the-cargo-ships-near-the-Bay-Bridge.html

....”Is more than a dozen cargo ships waiting around near the Bay Bridge a particularly high amount? Not really, he said.

“It really ebbs and flows, depending on the supply and demand,” Scher said. “We might have a period where there’s a whole lot, and we might have a period where we don’t see any.”

A spokesman for CNX didn’t return a call seeking comment, but the demand for coal overseas is soaring. According to the U.S. Energy Administration, the United States exported 13 million tons of coal to Asia during the first nine months of 2010, compared with 3.85 million tons during the same time frame the year earlier.

There have been reports of increased coal train traffic in places like Montana, and industry watchers linked that to rising demand. In the Hampton Roads area of southern Virginia, residents are seeing more coal vessels, according to a February story in the Virginian-Pilot.

Dan Stambaugh, general manager of the Baltimore Maritime Exchange, said he hadn’t gotten many calls from residents about the ships and was surprised that someone else had.

“I would call this normal,” he said. “We have one coal pier, and we’re shipping out a lot of coal from the U.S. to foreign counties.”
