Wyoming’s governor declares that the Obama administration is fighting a war against coal that includes all of the states which are coal producers. Well, that is a good thing isn’t it? Coal is not a renewable resource. Even when it is burned as clean as it can be, it is not in unlimited supply. Like all fossil fuels, it is reaching an end. The end is for two reasons: the supply is out and no replenishable, and consuming it has spoiled the air and water and local environments and ecosystems. What is hard to understand about that? If you are a state that still has fossil fuels remaining, you might want to drill and mine the hell out of planet earth to maximize capitalists’ profit, but is that what is best for humanity? No, the answer is a resounding no. So, stop it and find another way to fuel the economy of Wyoming such as looking at the stars at night while listening to the buffalo roam.

America wins when coal states transform their economies to something that is sustainable.

“Largest coal producing state slams administration over EPA rules

By Kelly David Burke

Published May 01, 2014


The American coal industry is accusing the Obama administration of using the Environmental Protection Agency to end the use of coal despite the president's claim of having an "all of the above" energy policy.

Earlier this year, the EPA issued its Mercury Air Toxics Standards (MATS), which the agency said will eliminate 90 percent of mercury and acid gas released into the air by coal-fired power plants.

"I would say this administration is certainly unfriendly towards coal," Wyo. Governor Matt Mead said. "And in my view it is a war on coal."”

Damned straight this is war, and Americans are fighting for sustainable living.
