WarOnCoal.com: Stop Obama's War on Coal

128,969 Letters and Emails Sent So Far

The American people rejected cap-and-trade (President Obama’s plan to make electricity prices “necessarily skyrocket” and “bankrupt coal”) in one of the biggest landslide elections in history in 2010.  The day after that election, Obama said: “Cap and trade was just one way of skinning the cat; it was not the only way.  It was a means, not an end.”

Since then, Obama has worked overtime to act as if the cap-and-trade bill passed and to twist decades-old laws in order to bankrupt coal and drive up the price of electricity.

Obama's staggering array of anti-coal regulations will effectively shut down all coal-fired power plants in America, a genuine economic catastrophe that will make prices “necessarily skyrocket” and undermine the reliability of our electric grid.

Take action now to urge the House AND Senate to stand up to Obama and to Stop the War on Coal!

Coal is safe, clean and cheap, why would we export it to other countries instead of using it ourselves?
I can't help if success stories like Solyndra are what motive Obama.
The war on coal is a complete and fast way to kill our entire economy and any hope of recovery.
This man needs to be stopped. There are so many families that depend on coal mining jobs to survive and take care of their families. We need to do everything we can to fight this.
I don't believe coal can be completely eliminated for energy.
We must also find other alternative
sources of clean & efficient energy too.
we need jobs in WV as well as cheaper ways to keep our lights on with
This is ridiculous! The loss of jobs and increase in electric bills should be a national concern! Why is everything that Obama does swept under the rug??
Coal is still a necessity while still finding other &/or better alternative
sources of clean, efficent energy

Coal is still a necessity as other alternative sources are not being produced to supply the current need. Common sense says that until there is a definite clean, reliable, & efficient,
energy source we cannot discontinue the use of coal.
I just wanted to say I feel for the ones who are losing their jobs. I am ashamed of this administration and how jobs can be destroyed so easily. We have always been "America Strong". I'm not sure how strong America will look when we're all on public assistance. Back to electric, my budget is $358/month. I can't afford anymore! (Btw we're talking about a 2bd house with only 3 occupants, 1 floor.) You can't cut coal without any other supply to replace it with. I thought that was common sense!
