A top Obama EPA official discussed the Obama Administration’s plan to destroy the coal industry at a recent Yale University gathering of environmentalists.

EPA Region 1 Administrator Curt Spalding told the Yale University gathering, “Lisa Jackson has put forth a very powerful message to the country,” that “if you want to build a coal plant you got a big problem.” Spalding went on to explain that the decision was “painful” because “you got to remember if you go to West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and all those places, you have coal communities who depend on coal. And to say that we just think those communities should just go away, we can’t do that. But she had to do what the law and policy suggested. And it’s painful. It’s painful every step of the way.

This is the second video in a series revealing the truth about the Obama-EPA’s extreme agenda to kill fossil fuels.

  1. We need to import energy from George Soroes investments around the world.
    Domestic oil bad, Brazil oil good.
    Domestic oil bad, Brazil oil good.
    Domestic oil bad, Brazil oil good.

  2. It’s wonderful that a representative from Texas and representatives from California can dictate what is best for Virginians. It is also wonderful that Virginians elected Hope and Change over food and shelter.

    And in 2010 there was high talk from Republicans of ending funding for the EPA.Instead, the EPA is still shutting down production,increasing energy costs,and handing out billions to “green” energy scams.

  3. No Surprise OBAMA and his cronies want to shut down the Saudi Arabia of Coal production. . .

    Viginians & West Virginians, need to trow OBAMA out along with any DemocRAT Senator. . .

    As they say: Live Free or Die!

  4. That is going to make one great ad for the Romney campaign to use in Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Ohio, and West Virginia :) :)!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Play it over and over again!!!

  5. How can any one continue to support this crazy narsasitic sob? I live in acoal producing state and this effort would devastate our economy. On top of that without coal power plants this country would go dark in a matter of days. Without electricity this country would come to a complete stand still. And we would all die.
    Barry has to go!!
    Fortunatly he only has 5 months to complete his plan to destroy the country. But his czars will have from Nov-Jan to run the country into the ditch with their crazzyness

  6. Sorry West Virginia and Pennsylvania.
    Just go away because Lisa Jackson has said so.
    Try Idaho…maybe you can farm potatoes or something.

    These are not left-wing campaign supporters.
    These are the Obama administration’s own people.
    He has to answer for theses people.
    CNN.
    MSNBC.
    ABC.
    CBS.
    NBC.
    Do your damn jobs.

  7. There is no question that this administration is destroying this country to rebuild it in the wacky POTUS’ image of perfect.
    I can’t see how any American can stand behind this.

    ABSOLUTELY. Play it 24/7.

    Since coal provides over 50% of our electricity, I wonder if this EPA bureaucrat understands what will happen when we can’t produce enough electricity to meet our demands.

  9. The people who live in coal producing states but not in the areas where coal is mined will also feel the effects of the shutdowns. There will be less revenue(taxes) collected so the state budget will have a shortfall. Who’s going to pay for the non-producers if the producers no longer work and pay taxes? hmmmm.

  10. Ignorance is not bliss. Anyone not in a coma should have known this was an objective before the last presidential election. You people who only vote for someone because of the initial following their name need to wake up. If a candidate is running on a platform which is not in your best interest, than don’t vote for him/her.

    Other than waiting until November to get rid of this scourge, what are we going to do about this situation now? What can we do? Let us not forget that even after the election when Romney is the winner, The Evil One still has plenty of time to wreak even more havoc before he is dragged from the WH kicking and screaming.

    And anyone who still supports this putz is a traitor to our great Republic.

  11. Anyone who doesn’t think they (obama and EPA) were serious about their attack on coal burning plants need only look at Sandy Creek Generating Station in Central Texas.
    There sets a brand spanking new coal burning power plant that was constructed with the very latest environmental technology, is rated at 900 megawatts of generating capacity (that’s a big’un) yet it is just sitting there off-line and waiting for those clowns to get voted out.
    There was rumours of some damage to the boiler tubes during test runs over a year ago but repairs of that sort do not take over a year to complete. No, I figure the reason is the threat of huge fines issued by the EPA.
    Vote ‘em out people before they completely destroy the country.

  12. Inhofe: Senate Will Vote in Next Two Weeks on Effort to Stop Obama War on Coal

    […….}

    Workers in Kentucky are also weighing in. As Politico Pro reported, President Obama lost to an “uncommitted” vote in 38 counties representing the Kentucky Coal Coalition and won just 44 percent of over 49,000 votes; he only carried 14 of the 38 coal counties; and overall carried the state as a whole with just 58 percent of the vote. In Arkansas, President Obama won the primary with less than 60 percent of the vote. In Ohio it’s the same story. When Vice President Biden visited that state recently he was faced with over 100 workers who will lose their jobs because of this administration’s aggressive regulatory regime. Their message to the Obama administration: “stop the war on coal.”

    These states have good reason to be concerned. Let’s take a look at how Utility MACT will impact some of the most coal dependent states.

    ARKANSAS – 40% of electricity; $70 million in annual payroll

    LOUISIANA – 9th cheapest electricity; $100 million in payroll

    MICHIGAN – 60% of electricity; 10th in coal use

    MISSOURI -80% of electricity; 6th in coal use

    MONTANA -60% of its electricity; 5th in coal production

    NORTH DAKOTA – 85% of electricity; 9th in coal production

    OHIO -85% of its electricity; more than 19,000 jobs

    PENNSYLVANIA – 52% of electricity; 5th in coal use

    TENNESSEE – 62% of electricity; $220 million in annual payroll

    VIRGINIA – more than 31,000 jobs; 13th in coal production

    WEST VIRGINIA – 2nd in coal production; more than 80,000 jobs

    These are real jobs that will be lost state by state.

  13. Their message to the Obama administration: “stop the war on coal.”

    Can you even imagine real people with real jobs, the only job some have ever known. Their livelihood is in the balance because of OBAMA. PERIOD.

    Already a half-dozen coal-fired plants in Ohio have either shut down or announced plans to do so shortly because they cannot comply with the new regs.

    Additionally, the EPA has announced plans to dynamite 3 of the big hydroeclectric dams on the rivers in Washington State to protect some minor species or other. Note that these dams provide a huge chunk of the electricity for the West Coast, which already suffers from rolling power outages in the summer.

    The day that Obama took office he deep-sixed already approved construction of a second coal fired power plant for the Navaho reservation – an area bigger than all of New England, waterless, currently served by a single coal fired power plant. The significant number of residents who do not live directly in town have no water & no electricity.

    He intends to turn us into a Third World hell-hole, where those that have have in huge abundance and the rest of us are slave laborers.

  15. In order to gain power, the regime has to, at some point, start stepping on the toes that brought them to power in the first place. The time has come.
    PA and WV mine workers- thanks for the votes, now go eat sh*t
    Black voters- we gave you lip service and thanks for being duped. Now go eat sh*t.
    Catholics- we appreciate you turning out. But you’re going to have to fund all of our birth
    control measures and eugenics anyway. Go eat sh*t.
    Jews- see Black voters.

    Hey libtards, you starting to feel used yet? The BOHICA regime could care less about any of you when the rubber hits the road.
