Coal industry offers congrats to Obama ???

http://www.americaspower.org/Election/Election-Results

Congratulations, Barack Obama!
It’s been a long road to the White House, but now the real work begins — the task of rebuilding America’s economy.
As you made clear during your impressive campaign, you are committed to clean coal technology.
With the election finally behind us, we look forward to helping you keep that commitment.
America’s coal-based electricity providers stand ready to work with you to pioneer a new generation of advanced clean coal technologies that will capture and store carbon emissions.
As a reminder, here are some of the things you’ve said about coal during the campaign:
· “If we can figure out how to sequester carbon and burn clean coal, we're the Saudi Arabia of coal.”
· “I am a big proponent of clean-coal technology and I want us to move rapidly in developing those sequestration technologies that's required.”
· “What we need to do though is to put clean coal technology on the fast track and that means money. It means investment in research. That's something that we should have already been doing.”
· “We're the Saudi Arabia of coal, and the sooner we can figure out how to burn it cleanly, not only are we going to benefit but we can license that technology to countries like China and India that are putting up new coal facilities every week.”
· “An Obama administration will provide incentives to accelerate private sector investment in commercial scale zero-carbon coal plants.”
· “Carbon capture and storage technologies hold enormous potential to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions as power our economy with domestically produced energy.”
We know your new administration will address one of the most pressing issues of our time —meeting America’s growing energy needs while addressing the climate change issue. So just remember: we’re here to help.
Sincerely,
The American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity



I guess they missed the memo that he is going to bankrupt them ????

Sucking his dick in hopes he doesn't beat them to death with the legislation bat.

To be fair to Obama, that tape of him saying "It will bankrupt the coal industry" is taken out of context. He was talking about carbon-cap legislation and how if the government doesn't hand out money to the coal companies for clean coal technology they would go bankrupt by using old technology. So of course they love him, he's promised them billions in free technology and we get to pay for it

Not defending him, but....

this was copied from an email sent out by my State Legislative Director.



In fact, Barack Obama is an advocate of clean-coal technology, which actually would increase demand for U.S. mined coal, increase employment in the coal industry, and increase railroad employment as more coal is mined and shipped.



Here is what Sen. Obama says about coal:



"Clean-coal technology holds enormous potential to create jobs for skilled union trades all over America."



Among Sen. Obama’s platform positions is to "instruct the Department of Energy to enter into public-private partnerships to develop five 'first-of-a-kind' commercial-scale, coal-fired plants with carbon capture and sequestration."

But in the same breath, when you talk about making the carbon credits cost so much that you would bankrupt the coal industry, it really caused us to have pause

He's probably been reading DFWStangs.

If there's one thing I dislike about some of the folks on the political forum of this website it's that half of you take shit way out of context to make Obama look scary. I really don't like the guy but at least be honest in your debates. He's been saying his entire campaign that he's for clean coal technology. Some of you trying to blow this claim out of the water by taking one comment out of context is absurd. It's almost as bad as Sean Hannity making a huge deal about what Obama said hypothetically about Iran. That was taken extremely out of context as well.

I'm confused. Didn't Obama recently remark about bankrupting the coal industry with enormous tax burdens?
