"Oh take me back to Muhlenberg County,

Down by the Green River where Paradise lay,

I can't take you back my darling young daughter,

Mr. Peabody's coal trains have hauled it away."

“Awesome....Next up take Al Gore to court and sue him for every penny of his il gotten Climate Fraud gains....”

I agree. I have been waiting for class action law suits filed by investors and other effected parties. In regards to the EPA, I think that state governments and other industries should sue this out of control agency. I tidal wave of lawsuits would overwhelm the EPA.

This is starting to get good!

They should sue AlGore, too, while they’re at it.

I think the Donald is correct. Gore should go back under whatever rock he crawled out from under.

This may end - with a reversal of earlier supreme court ruling on CO2 . I think the bad data was important in their decision.

This company may be doing this for it’s survival so they'll be well motivated to see it through to the end.

WOW, Tainan. Thanks for the links on the lawsuits. Looks like these and the PEC suit will damper BO’s global warming agenda just a bit, and get the EPA under control (fingers crossed). I appreciate your reply.

If the company goes under, thousands of Americans lose their jobs.

Not just the Americans who work directly for PEC ... also the Americans who use the electrical energy generated by burning Mr. Peabody's coal.

That's almost all of us ...

You are very welcome.
Those links show that a lot of things are going to getting a very high amount of scrutiny in the US legal system.
I think this will shine a lot of light into what have been some very dark areas.

Of your list only the Squiggley bulbs were mandated on the basis of the fraudulent “science”.

Catalytic converters get rid of unburnt hydrocarbons in car exhaust, which really are pollution, and thus cut down on smog in urbanized areas. Freon replacement was mandated on the basis of actual science: sampling of the ozone layer and a provable causal mechanism for the growth of the ozone hole (there are chemical reactions between O_3 and chloroflurohydrocarbons that can be readily verified), which, despite Rush Limbaugh’s conflation with AGW, has nothing to do with global warming when it happens whatever its cause.

And last I checked, not all automakers are introducing “hybrids” or electric cars (the only one of the Japanese “big 3” not plagued by recalls lately, Nissan, doesn’t have any in its lineup, and I’m fairly sure Chrysler, Kia, Hyundai, Suzuki, and Mazda have none on offer, and I’ve not heard of plans to introduce them) so the Prius, while it might help Toyota fulfill a CAFE mandate, is hardly the result of a government mandate, but rather a way for Toyota to profit from the nitwitted enthusiasms of the sort of people who think that low-flow toilets “save the earth”. But that’s the free market at work.

(Though it does make one wonder, whether too much of Toyota and Honda’s engineering expertise got diverted into work on electric power systems to the neglect of basic things like brakes.)

Some of our drilling companies should get a liece of the lawsuit pie. The regs are killing our oil and natural gas exploration, every year it takes longer and longer to get permits for each individual site. IMO, most companies involved in the energy field havn’t rocked the boat out of fear of the governmnet grinding them underfoot with the IRS, EPA and OSHA.

Even worse than all their employees losing their jobs, if Peabody, AMAX and other coal companies go under, we all freeze in the dark!

My mistake. They haven't four-walled the advertising on it the way Toyota did with the Prius.

Actually, if you want a great laugh, read Jeremy Clarkson's review of the Honda Insight from the Times.

(Oh, I've so despaired of American media that when I'm not reading FR, I read British, Russian and Australian news outlets. The Times, without adjectives means what most of us Yanks call The Times of London.)

“This company may be doing this for it’s survival...”

What they are doing is important to our own survival. Pray for Peabody success in this endeavor.

Yesterday Rush said he didn’t fear for his safety from the average leftist, he’s had and has that covered for years - it’s the Gorelionies who stand to loose trillions that has him worried. Former Goldman Sachs partner David Bloods, Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers, Silver Spring Networks and the rest of Sen. Moonbeam’s cabal. This is really BIG money.

There big and powerful that’s for sure. My guess is they are all in a panic. Do you know if the lamestream media is even reporting on the whole global warming fiasco? I don’t watch them, but, I’ve talked to a couple of people who haven’t a clue of what is going on and they are both greenies, without much knowledge, just following like a bunch of lemmings.

Eventually BO’s/BS’s regime will be slapped with more legal motinos than they can handle between lawsuits over the EPA usurping it’s Constitutional authority, BO’s/BS’s ineligibility and the grand jury presentments etc...

The Left has employed many unethical but effective tactics through the years and we have wondered how to fight them without becoming them. This may be the way.

One of their favorites is called the Cloward-Piven strategy which basically is designed to overwhelm the system and bring the government to its knees. This will be a perfect way to use that against them and now is the perfect time. They are overplaying their hand but if we don't stop them now it will be too late.

Those secret "legal motinos" might be just the answer.

:-)
