This video is all over the net today and most people are talking about BHO saying he’s going to shut down the coal industry. While that is indeed ignorance and arrogance at it’s best, (or worst) to me the more important message is why he will shut it down. Greenhouse Gases! What industry could be next? Agriculture. That’s right, he wants to shut down the food industry. Barack Obama’s ideas will kill the USA. RedState has that story.
Moonbattery has another video from BHO. You have to hear this one too. He is saying “electricity prices will skyrocket, propane, you name it”. (his words)
LLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLet me sort of describe my overall policy.
What I’ve said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else’s out there.
I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.
So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.
That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches.
The only thing I’ve said with respect to coal, I haven’t been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as a ideological matter as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it.
So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can.
It’s just that it will bankrupt them.”
0bama/Biden are the biggest threat to America that has come around in a long time.
Don’t forget his other Plan to Destroy America
