MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Gov. Mark Dayton challenged energy policy and business leaders Thursday to find a way for Minnesota to eliminate coal from the state's energy production.
Dayton, who has spoken of his aim to eliminate coal before, said it's time to start talking details so that Minnesota can lead the nation.

Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Candidate Barack Obama, Same interview as above
Were going to have to cap the emission of greenhouse gasses. That means that power plants are going to have to adjust how they generate power but a lot of us who can afford it are going to have to pay more per unit of electricity, and that means were going to have to change our light bulbs, were going to have to shut the lights off in our houses. Candidate Barack Obama, Iowa PBS interview, November 9, 2007
So much for President Obamas claims to be for an all-of-the-above approach...
Right .not like Minnesota gets cold or anything likethat ...
These people are sick.
--freeze in the dark, you stupid jerk---
Hmmm. Let’s see how Minnesotans would like it if this were to occur with the caveat that Minnesota would not derive any benefits from products or services produced from coal or it’s by-products. I’m sure most Minnesotans aren’t in favor of the asshat gov daytons idea. At least the ones outside the major metro areas.
Go for it Mark. I don’t live in Minnesota so if you build a bunch of over-priced solar and wind and other BS “clean” energy plants and force MN to use them, it means coal will be cheaper for me. You live with the consequences of what you vote for.
here is what it’s all about: “Degrowth is an essential economic strategy to pursue in overdeveloped countries like the United Statesfor the well-being of the planet, of underdeveloped populations, and, yes, even of the sick, stressed, and overweight consumer populations of overdeveloped countries. It is also considered a movement that offers a path toward moving back to living within the limits-to-growth dilemma”.
Somewhere in Dayton’s portfolio, I will bet you will find some Green Energy Investments. It is always “follow the money”.
“these people are sick”— LOL
Guv Dayton - is certified CRAZY-
Will not reveal the Psychiatrist’s that are treating him-
Takes multiple Drugs to control-—— put in the disorder.
And he is a poor little RICH boy- most of investments
ARE IN SOUTH DAKOTA!!!- no fooling -because Minneeesota’s
Estate taxes are TOO high!
Hey I know, lets NOT vote for Dayton— and elect franken!
‘swhy we took our Yankee money and went south...
Minnesota DemonicRat Grand Poobah Dayton should lead by example and voluntarily stop personally releasing carbon dioxide and other noxious global-warming gases into the atmosphere.
I believe they should eliminate coal use also. Let them freeze to death. We are now entering into the age of stupidity. The only chance of survival is to let those advocating for and pushing it to kill themselves off as soon as possible. Then the survivors will be able to rebuild.
Whether its blasting Stewart Mills for being wealthy or blaming the Koch Brothers for exercising their rights to political speech, the Democrats have zero credibility.
Here’s one difference, however. The Koch Brothers and Stewart Mills earned their wealth. The other guy is a trust fund baby who has never created a job in his life. And the same goes for his ex-wife, who is the queen of buying elections here in Minnesota.
Hey, Dayton. Your campaign called. They need money for another email. Time to sell another piece of art.
Leftists are regressives, trying to take the world into a new Dark Age
If we built nuke plants as often as stadiums, we’d be fine.
Loony poop from loons.
The guy probably couldn’t change his own tire, but he knows all there is to know about producing energy.
They would have to let most of us starve to death to get to their “perfect” hell-on-earth utopia
Dems, the perfect Luddites.
Willing to bet the WH gave him financial incentives to promote the idea too.
Yes, they are. They have allowed their hatred for us blind them. Their hatred for us blinds them to the fact, that since for the most part, they are parasites and we are the host[s], that we can survive without us when the opposite is true. make no mistake, they spend their every wake moment wishing we were dead and thinking up ways to kill us.
When is the last time he actually saw his own utility bill or wrote a check to pay for it?
We’ve got a couple of really good candidates in the work. Minnesota has voted in Republican governors before, we can do it again.... (I really hope).
I met Jeff Johnson. He’s really savvy, and a good conservative. He’s also looks young, which I think will appeal to younger voters, and he’s been in the lion’s den of Northern Minneapolis reaching out to a lot of people. So, he’s brave and fearless.
It could happen.
You can see the same thing happening in other countries where the parasites take control of government and proceed to try and stamp anything productive. You can see it in Venezuela and Argentina and it has already been done in Cuba and North Korea and even Zimbabwe.
It must be pathological or something. They see some people producing things people need and want and they desire to stop it just like Zimbabwe sees white farmers growing crops and has to stamp it out.
Unfortunately they all too often succeed.
“what’s up with the water”
Very liberal state- Very liberal churches
ELCA-Homo marriage- lesbian/homo pastors-
Archbishop Harry Flynn of Minneapolis-St. Paul and Cardinal Roger Mahoney of Los Angeles had informed movement members that they would be welcomed at Masses. George, meanwhile, sent a directive to priests in the archdiocese ordering them to stop sash wearers from receiving Communion.
Yep the last bishop - was at the Mass at the Cathedral-
Watching these people KISS each other in front of
Now wonder why we vote for Looosers- satan could win an
Then what should I use in my laser printer? Pixie dust?
How many research grants are available for a study of how to use the energy in coal in a non-polluting manner? (crickets)
Degrowth sounds like UN Agenda 21, which would reduce the Earth’s human population by about 85%. I suggest that its supporters set the example- you go first!
Maybe the utilities need to “try” one coal-free day per week.
On those days — “Dayton-days” (?) — no electricity would be generated from burning coal.
The result — an electricity shortage in Minnesota — would be brouoght into balance by allowing higher per-unit prices to allocate whatever elecricity IS generated from other fuels to those folks who can afford to pay the most.
The folks who can’t pay can bask in their “blackouts” and “brown-outs”, of course.
Just because clubdegrowth wants my stuff doesn’t mean they have a right to it.
Redistribute YOUR OWN wealth!
Why do all the anti-liberal, anti-RINO folks around the country criticize Mn. for electing Ventura? He was the alternative to Skip Humphrey(uber lib), and Norm Coleman (Rino). As a result of that election, Skip left politics, and huge success in my book!
Jesse ran on lowering taxes and vehicle fees, and did both. He also sent a check from the overly stuffed state coffers back to the taxpayers.
What would you have had us do?
lead the nation.
into an abyss from whence it may never climb out of.
Left there 40 years ago, still have a lot of family there.
after coal is banned, what next, wood burning?
Dayton could live off his family fortune for years,, but no..
Nanny knows best.
FL will only accept cold, conservative MN citizens who want to relocate.
Your papers will be checked at the border.
