Pennsylvania will feel the effects of voting for Obama, the coal industry is as good as dead. The next 4 years should be great, elections have consequences.

Here's what you get by electing Obama, higher electric costs that will do nothing for global warming. For every ton of coal we decrease our consumption, China increases their's by two tons. Just cripple our economy.

Economics? The plants work FINE right now. Without spending 1 penny. But tear out the coal burners and replace with gas turbines and they will produce the same amount of electricity. And gas burners produce exhaust gases. Just like coal burning.

What's the matter readers, don't like facts interfering with your global warming crusade? The fact is that China is the largest user of coal in the world and is steadily increasing because new coal plants are opened weekly in China. India fired government officials because they failed to INCREASE coal production. So Obama can't even bring other countries to the table on CO2, but he is willing to throw our economy off the cliff.
