Be sure you correct anyone who says Obama is waging a war on coal. It is not a war on coal, it is a war on smoke and it's pollutants and greenhouse gases. If the company wants to continue to burn coal a scrubber is all that's needed.

King Bush III met with King Coal for money, and for that money he promised to attack Pope Francis when he says we are hosing up our world. "Leave it to scientist" Santorum said yesterday. Guess what, the Pope is also a scientist.
“Pope Francis is not the only moral or religious leader speaking out on this issue,” says Rabbi Rieber from Kansas. “The Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, Katherine Jefferts Shori, have both recently made strong statements calling for action on climate change and calling denial of the problem ‘a sin.’ And over 300 rabbis have signed a ‘Rabbinic Letter on the Climate Crisis.’ So this is truly an multi-faith effort.”
