Sol-No-Coal

A Mural from New Mexico.  At the center, the sun, no one owns the sun, or the light from it.  Next the people are installing solar panels to harvest clean renewable low cost energy.  At the edges of the inhabitable world is the coal burning utilities, monopolies spewing smoke that kills, sickens, and reduces brain development.
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.  But the fact is, financing coal plants is going out of style, everyone knows it is filth, investors know it's risky now, the payoff just isn't there.

King Bush III hits Pope for coal money.

In June King Bush the 3rd met with Coal companies, environmentalist booed, and his spokesman said he met with them because they are job creators.  Coal mines and supporting industry have been losing a lot of jobs the last few years, while mine production has fallen only a couple of percent.

Automation, bigger faster machines, more explosives, mountain top removal rather than shaft work are the primary cause of loss of jobs.

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.”
