Off to a fresh start, Mitch McConnell is distressed by the actions of Barack Obama. Big Whoop? No, Big Coal. Reducing greenhouse gasses is not in the best interest of the coal mining industry, because they are the biggest culprits. And no matter what the coal industry says, there is no such thing a clean coal. It’s dirty to mine, dirty to burn, and dirty to dispose of.
Mitch McConnell will say he is trying to protect decent hard-working coal miners, but forgive me if I blow chunks. Coal is big money to a select few, and a real liabiltiy to the rest of us.
