The question wouldn't be "old cobbled up schools" and "70 year old hospitals" OR "new ones"-it's closing down the "older" coal fired power plants and NOT opening any new ones. The NEW natural gas plants etc won't be online before the coal plants close.<quoted text>Sorry Efficient!! I know how coal companies circumvent rules and regulations...smoke and mirrors and other means.I've see it since I was old enough to carry a coal bucket and I PERSONALLY KNOW OSHA AND MINE INSPECTORS! Some go by the book and some go by something else! Catch my drift?
And yes there is a plant within 5 miles of my home!
Of which I personally know over half the employees. It has nothing to do with my politics sorry to disappoint you on that assumption.
Would you want an 70 year old hospital trying to renovate or would a new one better to ease your worry about heath-care?
Old cobbled-up schools or new ones?
BTW me being a Democrat has nothing to do with my pride in wanting a state-of-the-art facility in any company to serve America in a top notch capability!
Also I'm for using our natural resources but do it in a responsible manner for as long as we can sustain that ability!
And even the "new" coal plants we've built in the past dozen years or so are going to have to raise their prices as their costs per unit of coal raised 700%-800% thanks to Obama's EPA over reach.
As for your talk on OSHA and mine inspectors-what good is more regulations going to do, if we don't enforce the ones we currently have on the books anyway? or do we need someone to regulate the regulators, and so on and so forth?
If you know about all of these rule violations, regulation breaking of the coal companies, why not turn them over to the authorities? Or are we back to - the authorities wouldn't do anything? If so, see the above.
