President Obama on Saturday tried to bolster public support for new rules his administration will announce next week on coal-firing power plants, arguing their carbon emissions are a nation health crisis beyond hurting the economy and causing global warming.
We dont have to choose between the health of our economy and the health of our children, Obama said in his weekly address. As president and as a parent, I refuse to condemn our children to a planet thats beyond fixing.(continued)

And yet coal country helped put him in office twice.
Why doesn’t he simply shut all the coal plants down, then we would all have perfect health immediately. Pray for guidance.
This inept pea-brain thinks he’s God!
No it won’t Soetero, it will raise the costs to the point of causing stress related illnesses paying for your stupid scam.
Geesh, I can’t stand this jackass.
Eventually, he’s in for a huge shock.
And he won’t find 72 virgins waiting for him either.
Not men, not women...lol.
Sure. When you can't afford power or health care your health crisis will be very short-term.
Paging Joe Mancin, paging Joe Mancin, your state just got pooped on. But you could care being a lap dog and all that.
Well, everyone east of the Mississippi should get more sleep. They won’t be watching TV or using the internet late at night because electricity will be too expensive. It may be rationed, as it is in many countries ruled by inept dictators.
Hundreds are going to freeze to death next winter. Bank on it.
“Why doesnt he simply shut all the coal plants down”
Well 292 coal fired power plants is a good start. If you are not looking at an alternative electrical system you will shortly be spending quality time with your family and pets in the dark.
If we had a congress with any cajones, they would stop all funding of the EPA if king obama end runs them with this nonsense. Same with the IRS and DOJ for failing to comply with request for information on ongoing scandals. Enough is enough.
We need a “law of the land” that allows the people to throw this @$$ out and send him home to Kenya.
If Obama was smart, he would issue a concurrent EO outlawing the coming winter.
That should take care of that...
Ceil Heat didn't really take off till the 1950's in homes and mainly in more warmer climates south of the Mason-Dixon. Natural Gas caught on for the most part in the 1970's. I wonder if "Oh Great One" can enlighten us on this one? :>}
The 0bamas should be required to be on 100 percent wind power or nothing at all. Let them go on theoir million dollar teips on wind power. Let them survive next winter on wind power. I say wind power or nothing for the stupid that voted for zero as well.
The Clown Prince nobama once again proves that he hates you...and your family. At least if you aren’t going to a VA for care, he probably won’t kill you...yet.
No it didn’t.
We dont have to choose between the health of our economy and the health of our children, Obama said in his weekly address.
Oh shut up.. So sick and tired of this nonsense. “Its for the children”. Dude you and your party kill more children every year then coal ever could in a thousand years..........
Zer0 has a history of picking and choosing what laws he will enforce or not.
So what if states decided not to close their plants. To follow his lead and example. What would happen?
Ummm, West Virginia voted against a winning Democrat for the first time in maybe 100 years by voting against Obama... and they went 62-38 for Romney.

Why of course it will! If you are deceased because of freezing to death in the winter or die of heat stroke if you are elderly or have an compromised immune system then you can’t possibly have long term health problems.
The man is simply a Genius I tell you! A genius./s
The air around Gary IN back in the day was almost viscous. Heck, Bugs Bunny cartoons constantly made fun of the smog covering Los Angeles in the 1960s. Improving air quality in the US today should be #188 on our priority list. There is no need for major and radical change now. This is simply a power play.
Now I’m gonna have to cut down a boat load of trees to heat my home next winter.
“Hundreds are going to freeze to death next winter. Bank on it.”
Here’s some free information on alternatives to freezing to death.

Have you no unicorn dung?
And when folks die from freezing to death in the winter or from heat stroke due to lack of electricity to power their air conditioning? I guess those “health problems” won’t count, because they aren’t health problems, they are deaths.
Harry and Rory will need to look at taking over a lot more than the Bundy ranch.
Communist bastard destroying America.
Yeh LOL! The plebes are not supposed to act independently from the mother ship.
Why are we letting him destroy us?!
*So what if states decided not to close their plants. To follow his lead and example. What would happen?*
Then Zero would throw a temper tantrum, Holder would immediately sue, and the states would then take the latest stance of illegals - that they won’t come to court because it might be an uncomfortable environment for them. Holder and Zero start melting down as we chant ‘lame duck’ and have a good laugh.
Obama’s knowledge on any matter does not extend one centimeter beyond the political agendas he has made a career of being the water carrier for.
Any person with one centimeter of honest intellectual curiosity would know - from having reviewed the entire scientific discussion of the issue from all sides - that the climate ramifications of the human generation of CO2 is not settled science, not a consensus and not verified by current climate conditions.
That knowledge is not available to someone like Obama whose political agendas requires that he not be given it and if and when given it that he ignore it.
What a bleepin motherbleeper. This man is sickening.
At least people freezing to death in cold weahter, or baking to death in hot weather, or eating crap food because they can’t afford their skyrocketing electricity rates will feel better that Obama has declared they won’t die from some imaginary calamity from Gorebal warming.
Nuclear power plants, anyone?
Without subsidies, have at it. There's nothing stopping investors from trying again. The triple meltdowns in Fukushima were obviously caused by Japan's low average IQ and lack of world class government schools, workforce diversity, affirmative action, anti-discrimination laws, unions, equal pay laws, and American ingenuity following the rules.</s>
Historically 80% of nuclear power plants are built in Republican voting areas while 80% of the power is sent to Democrat voting areas. We would ask that future nuclear terrorist magnets be built mostly in Democrat areas and that they not discriminate against Muslims in their hiring.
Has Obama saved us from ourselves yet? I’m not feeeeeling it.
