It is well established that coal releases mecury which is a toxix nerve agent, into the atmosphere. Sulphur Dioxide does exactly make life easy for farmers either. Gas is cheap and it makes the most sense right now. Time for WV to move on.

Coal is cheap too. I guess it's time for Germany to move on, eh? Hypocrite?

Coal was cheaper than gas until the recent advance in drilling and recovery technology. Unfortunately, utilities can't just switch to gas when their boilers are designed for coal. Gas is now $1 MM/BTUs less than PRB coal landed in the Midwest.

As of a year ago Germany was importing Appalachian coal from us. They know how to burn coal very cleanly and so do we. It is the eviro-commies who classify CO2 as a pollutant so are forcing us to shut down coal fired electric generation

When Mitt Romney gets in the first thing he must do is Operation Clean Sweep at the EPA. Broom out all the liberal slugs and half wit AA hires (all making $90,000/year minimum) who obstruct our economy
