One Obama promise he is keeping:

He promised to make coal and oil fired power plants too expensive to operate and he is doing exactly that.

I can’t help it, I keep thinking that sooner or later Obama and his thugs are going to stick the wrong group in the eye!

This is going on all over the country. If you think there won’t be power outages and power shortages you live in a dreamworld. We are planning for an alternative energy system in the very near future.

500 families lost their jobs. This doesn’t count the coal that won’t be mined, the trains that won’t carry it, etc. Those lives wrecked by the Kenyan communist bastard.

Today in the Ruhr B-17s and B-24s of the 8th Air force successfully destroyed 15 German power plants. The plan is that it would cause shortages, and further cripple German industry.

What would have been a very successful 8th Air Force air raid in WWII against the enemy, is now just a day’s work for Obama. He is a domestic enemy.

Actually, you can blame THE BARACK in Georgia located in Fulton County, Dekalb County, in the cities of Atlanta, Smyrna (full of illegal Mexicans), Macon, Columbus, etc. pretty much anywhere there is a THE BARACK mayor.

Regardless of that unfortunate fact, Georgia did on whole go against and outnumber THE BARACK.....

It’s going to cost a lot more than 480 jobs when the ripple effects are considered.

Why don’t they just convert all the plants to natgas? That way they can sidestep the mercury AND AGW regs, and quite possibly continue to produce affordable electricity.

That’s what I would try to do if I were running their show.

It seems that the “..alternative energy system in the very near future” for the folks in our state of Georgia will be lots of flashlight batteries. Progress via the EPA back to the 19th century, wood stoves, candles, steam engines & crank telephones.

Costs upwards of 100 million to convert a plant to gas, and fuel costs go up too. Of course, there is an extensive licensing process.
Very expensive whe there is no economic of physical reason that it must be done in the first place.

It’s all part of the Obama plan. He said this would happen when he ran for President. This will only please the relatively small group of environmental fanatics. And the closings will get no news coverage, unless we spread the news around.

About 2 years ago, Obama had been sued in Georgia to produce his legitimate papers (long form birth certificate, etc.). The court approved this trial going forward, everyone got really excited, Obama’s attorney didn’t show up, then, at the last minute, the judge threw out the case & strongly chastised the attorney bringing the charges. The problem is I can’t remember the name of this judge. Then, several months later, the EPA gave approval for a nuclear power plant in Georgia, it’s first if I remember correctly. They usually aren’t as devious as this, but I can’t help but wonder if all this is connected.

not as easy as it sounds. costs to scrap the coal plant and retrofit to gas convert may not be affordable
and it needs to have a pipline terminus to bring the gas in.

With an estimated 280 billion tons the U.S. has the world’s largest known coal reserve. At the current burn rate this would last for 250 years. A prudent government would focus research on clean coal technology. Instead we fund exotic pipe dreams.
