Canada Free Press: “A nation without adequate energy production is a nation in decline and that has been the President’s agenda since the day he took office in 2009. He even announced his war on coal during the 2008 campaign even though, at the time, it was providing fifty percent of the electricity being utilized.
It’s useful to know that the U.S. has huge coal reserves, enough to provide energy for hundreds of years and reduce our debt through its export to nations such as Japan. It increased coal-fired power generation by ten percent in 2013 while Germany’s coal use reached the highest level since 1990. Both China and India are increasing the use of coal. So why is coal unwelcome in the U.S.? Because Obama says so.”

Forget the 20,000 or more jobs and the billions in economic growth the pipeline would create. The president has made his antipathy toward domestic energy production from coal, oil, natural gas, and nuclear power abundantly clear since 2008:
“Go ahead and build a coal-powered plant — but it will bankrupt you.”
