Hum, Tate David, ... you do know that the fat-cat Coal Industry owners are selling that Coal, that you and your boys worked so hard to remove, to China? Right, you do know that, right?

We need to protect all our wild places & the environment before it's too late & we should not let greedy selfish & the rich destroy it for any reason! Mountains trees Etc. are a big huge part of our ecosystem & all serve a purpose so leave them alone in peace & let them do their job!

Tate David, The Gas industry is responsible for the War On Coal, and your jobs. Coal industry workers (and mind you that I didn't say the Coal Industry - because it's common knowledge that they are moving from Coal to Gas) need to spend a little more time reading the business and financial sections of the news papers and less time ranting about President Obama; Obama has little to nothing to do with the War On Coal. Tate David, do you even know about the generous MILLIONS that the Gas...

Tate David, The Gas industry is responsible for the War On Coal, and your jobs. Coal industry workers (and mind you that I didn't say the Coal Industry - because it's common knowledge that they are moving from Coal to Gas) need to spend a little more time reading the business and financial sections of the news papers and less time ranting about President Obama; Obama has little to nothing to do with the War On Coal. Tate David, do you even know about the generous MILLIONS that the Gas industry donated to the Sierra Club to fight the Coal industry for them? No, I'm sure you don't. Stupid people are politically swayed so easily; you'll believe anything that in your face (like those Obama kills Coal yard signs) but you'll never learn about what's actually going on; You're the kind of people who voted for Romney?
If you're so gun-ho about fossil fuels I'm sure you'll be able to find a job with the Gas industry; after all, they always have opening because of their huge turn over. They'll love the way you talk.

Ask the President to help the environment, including the human and nonhuman animals who live in Appalachia, by ending mountain top removal (explosive) mining (where Georgia gets most of its coal).

Yeap Songbird. But we keep signing them until the "we" is in such great numbers that the "they" can't ignore us any longer.

It's our own DUMB fault!
Hedonist AMERICA continues to WASTE over 70% of the energy we consume. The energy WASTE is EVERYWHERE. 100's of Millions of lights burn unnecessarily every day and night. We overHeat, overCool, and overDRIVE as if it does not matter.
Open YOUR eyes and speak out to STOP the/our/your energy WASTE!

I agree 100% Lowell. The conversation must start with ways in which we can all change our habits. To change habits there needs to be a national conversation about it; then, tax incentives toward Green Energy and conservation. Examples would be a tax incentive for new construction solar energy; thermostats that adjust room temperatures in each and every room, not merely throughout the entire house (like dropping down the entire house temps at night); discounts for those who conserve the...

I agree 100% Lowell. The conversation must start with ways in which we can all change our habits. To change habits there needs to be a national conversation about it; then, tax incentives toward Green Energy and conservation. Examples would be a tax incentive for new construction solar energy; thermostats that adjust room temperatures in each and every room, not merely throughout the entire house (like dropping down the entire house temps at night); discounts for those who conserve the most energy from month to month, year to year, etc.. But NO, that will never happen because then you won't be consuming more energy, the industry will loose money. This is ALL about the fossil fuel industry's bottom line, PROFITS.

The late, and in my opinion, great singer/song writer John Denver said it best, in one line, " more people, more scars upon the land..." Too many people, too many energy demands, too much raping and pillaging of poor old Mother Earth.

Carly, But Americans need to learn to conserve their energy usage. We are gluttons. We should not be fully heating rooms that we are not living in for the greater part of the day (example, bedrooms). We heat and cool huge homes with no one in them for the greater part of the day. America needs to change it's entire way of thinking first. Don't you agree?
