Krauthammer Slams Coal Warrior Obama

Posted by on Jun 26, 2013 at 8:10 am

Charles Krauthammer isn’t a big fan of Obama’s decision to declare war on the coal industry.

Columnist Charles Krauthammer called President Obama’s climate change proposal “nuts” on Special Report Tuesday, saying it would destroy the American coal industry while it exploded in the rest of the world.

Citing a recent report by the IEA about the U.S. reduction in carbon dioxide emissions to a 20-year low and the struggling economy that has contributed to Obama’s languishing approval ratings, Krauthammer sharply criticized Obama’s agenda as one that would have “zero effect” on the climate, even if one believed in global warming.

“At a time like this and also with high unemployment, a very sluggish economy sort of hanging on the edge, the president wants to introduce legislation that everybody understands is intended to kill coal,” Krauthammer said. “The regulations on the books already have made it impossible for an American to open a new plant. What this is going to do is destroy the existing plants, and this is why it is nuts. China and India are opening a new coal plant every week. Even if you believe in global warming, this is going to have zero effect on the climate.”

But hey, when you’re mired in scandal with plummeting approval ratings, do anything to distract the rubes.

    The green agenda has nothing to do with the environment. It’s all a disguise for redistribution and gov control. Just like everything else this admin does.

    Right. Because, as per the usual motivation for liberals, it’ll make them feel good about themselves and further make them superior to others, which is always their goal. To be able to look down their noses with the confidence they lack in their personal lives.

    Cost of electricity skyrocketing for the poor? This doesn’t matter.

    These are people who feel powerless thus constantly talk about “empowerment”. So being able to wield any power, regardless of cost, makes them feel powerful. And they will wield whatever they get and they will not, ever, discuss the dangers of them having it. Because their fragile egos can’t handle it.
