EPA Chief: Yes, We're Fighting a 'War on Coal'

Gina McCarthy, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, was on Bill Maher’s show and clarified the department’s position on coal:
Bill Maher: “Some people called it a war on coal. I hope it is a war on coal. Is it?”
Gina McCarthy: “That’s exactly what this is.”
For some perspective, a Heritage Foundation analysis of anti-coal policies found that they will destroy more than 500,000 jobs, slash the income of a typical family of four more than $1,400 a year, and increase electricity prices at least 20 percent. Price spikes could be much higher in states that depend heavily on coal-fired power plants, especially in the Midwest. Coal still produces 37% of the nation’s electricity.
One wonders if the consequences of winning this ‘war on coal’ are actually understood. We don’t have a replacement for coal that is anywhere near as cost-effective or as efficient, so this will end up being an extremely expensive fight.

Karma, Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

I know some of the players left over from WWII who are behind all this mess.

This is definitely a repeat.

Gene, look for a friend request.

RE:"

GOD HATES THEIR BEHAVIOR PROBABLY MORE THAN ANY OTHER SIN.

OBAMA IS A QUEER."

I love your comment.  Short, succinct and CORRECT.

PS-"OBAMA IS A QUEER," and that's just his good side--he's also a despot, a murderer, and a devout psychotic.

PPS-I really don't think that there is anything vile and repulsive he hasn't done.  Yet, we allow him to keep his job, keep his pretend citizenship and steal and kill all he wants.  Why is that?

Germany had PLENTY of queers in the government with Hitler.

In fact, There is a part of their army called "The Pink Panthers".

I've read the Bible cover to cover about 70 times

Queers brought down MANY nations.

GOD HATES THEIR BEHAVIOR PROBABLY MORE THAN ANY OTHER SIN.

OBAMA IS A QUEER.

obama's War on Coal is intended to cause electricity rates skyrocket and bankrupt the middle class. We are quite capable of building highly efficient coal burning power plants that are less polluting than cars are. The place for a War on Coal is in china where the air is often the color of sulphur

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
