OBAMA'S WAR ON COAL JOBS ENERGY AND INDUSTRY

THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS WAGED A WAR ON COAL FROM THE BEGINNING

Campaigning In 2008, Obama And Biden Made Explicitly Clear Their Administration Would Not Support The Coal Industry
While Campaigning For President In 2008, Barack Obama Said That His Cap-And-Trade Program Would Bankrupt Coal-Powered Plants. OBAMA: "So, if somebody wants to build a coal plant, they can - it's just that it will bankrupt them, because they are going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted." (Sen. Barack Obama, Interview With The San Francisco Chronicle's Editorial Board, San Francisco Chronicle, 1/17/08)

  • Biden: "We're Not Supporting Clean Coal." (Joe Biden, Remarks At A Campaign Event, Maumee, OH, 9/16/08)
  • In 2007, Then-Presidential Candidate Joe Biden Said "I Don't Think There's Much Of A Role For Clean Coal In Energy Independence," And "Clean-Coal Is Not The Route To Go In The United States." BIDEN: "I don't think there's much of a role for clean coal in energy independence, but I do think there's a significant role for clean coal in the bigger picture of climate change. Clean-coal technology is not the route to go in the United States, because we have other, cleaner alternatives." (Amanda Little, "An Interview With Joe Biden About Energy And The Environment," Grist.org, 8/30/07)
  • In 2007, Biden Ranked Coal Ahead Of High-Fructose Corn Syrup And A Terrorist Attack As More Likely To Contribute To The Death Of An Average American. HBO'S BILL MAHER: "Senator Biden, forgetting about the upcoming Iowa caucus for just a moment, which would you honestly say is more likely to contribute to the death of your average American: a terrorist strike or high-fructose corn syrup and air that has too much coal in it?" BIDEN: "Air that has too much coal in it, corn syrup next, then a terrorist attack. But that is not in any way to diminish the fact that a terrorist attack is real. It is not an existential threat to bringing down the country, but it does have the capacity, still, to kill thousands of people. But hundreds of thousands of people die and their lives are shortened because of coal plants, coal-fired plants and because of corn syrup." (Sen. Joe Biden, Slate, Yahoo, The Huffington Post Presidential Forum, 9/13/07) Source
