I, and many others that argued this point, were once demonized for pointing out that the Obama administration’s green agenda amounted to all but a war on fossil fuels and would sooner than later result in higher energy prices. Surprise, surprise, now that they have been getting away with murder and any and all abuses of power are ignored or explained away through insane donkey talking points by their shill in the LSM, these green warriors no longer feel any need to hide the fact that they meant to have a war on coal.
Daniel P. Schrag, a White House climate adviser and director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment, tells the New York Times “a war on coal is exactly what’s needed.” Later today, President Obama will give a major “climate change” address at Georgetown University.
“Everybody is waiting for action,” Schrag tells the paper. “The one thing the president really needs to do now is to begin the process of shutting down the conventional coal plants. Politically, the White House is hesitant to say they’re having a war on coal. On the other hand, a war on coal is exactly what’s needed.”
The war on coal has been going on since 2009. Don’t be fooled. They are just finally admitting it was going on. This is part & parcel of the Obama administrations campaign to throw some red meat to their constituency in the hopes of getting their help to deflect from the plethora of scandals the WH is now playing damage control with. At a time where the economy is taking another hit, these fucks are yet again targeting good jobs. Don’t worry: I am sure they will come up with some shovel ready stimulus jobs that will only cost tax payers a million dollars, or more, per unsustainable job created. Just like they did back when they convinced us to let them funnel a trillion dollars to their buddies, special interests, lobbyist friends, and own campaign coffers under the guise of stimulus.
At a time when more an more facts come out showing how ludicrous and stupid the whole man made climate change crisis nonsense is, they are doubling down on the stupid. Get used to European level of unemployment, anemic growth, if any growth happens at all, and even more intrusive control of all aspects of our lives. For our own good of course. Our elite masters know what’s best for us after all.
