Yep River. Much better to get your info from Mother Jones, Harpers or the NY Times.
Using West Virginia as an example, every job lost in coal mining has been replaced by jobs in natural gas extraction. The trend will almost certainly continue with a net gain in new jobs.
The Heritage Foundation study projecting the loss of coal industry jobs from stricter environmental regulations did not take into account any offset from new jobs in natural gas extraction.
also look like there's more coal jobs now that there were three or four years ago.
Those publications are a joke.
You can choose to support your leaders and pretend illegal immigration/amnesty aren't going to be extremely expensive and that their legalization will be a economic windfall, that's your poor decision.
Most illegals won't do what's required to become citizens so this solution the government will force on you isn't worth a damn anyway. The overwhelming vast majority of illegals who stand to benefit have less than a HS education. If you believe that's not expensive over time then it's your problem. Disregard Heritage if you like but do so with the admission that you really don't know how expensive or what kind of long term problems will be created.
It's also odd to me illegal immigration proponents try to convince you foreign born unskilled labor has a magic that defies logic but they aren't trying to open up our system to millions of new Europeans as well. If 11 million uneducated workers build an economy imagine what another 20 million or so educated Europeans and Asians might give us?
It will probably keep 500k people from developing asthma too.
Obama shows his lack of intelligence or he would do an about face. The problem is if you shut down the largest group of energy providers and don't replace them with something else, we are looking at massive brown outs all over the country. Given that 30 nuclear plants have been authorized, only 5 are being built with 16 current plants about to be mothballed. Because of Greenpeace and what happened in Japan nuclear power won't be the answer, which leaves natural gas as the only player left. We have nothing to replace coal plants and solar is too costly for most homes to power themselves. Green energy is in its infancy - probably 30 to 40 years. I've already looked into getting off the grid because in 10 years this country won't be able to produce enough energy to keep up with growth.
So, I guess we can call him a liar about the "all of the above" approach he promised when talking about our energy needs during his last campaign fiction parade. :roll:
