The current administration has nothing to do with coal plants closing.
The trend of less power demand has been going on for decades. The
EPA crap is just one factor for which plants close. The monster power
plants in the midwest are still going strong and will be for a long time.
And yes, acid rain was debunked years ago, but the truth didn't make as
good a story as the lie.

Read this article. It says that Obama is all rhetoric and that he is actually pushing for more coal mining: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/glenn-hur ... 40083.html

I am glad you cleared that one up!. I was starting to think that the President was going to outlaw the coal shovel in his bid to stop coal production.

My guess is that the President has no working knowledge of coal or it's production.
