Who needs inexpensive energy in one of the worst economic climates in U.S. history? The Obama administration is becoming more and more bold in their war on affordable energy:
EPA Region 1 Administrator Curt Spalding told the Yale University gathering, “Lisa Jackson has put forth a very powerful message to the country,” that “if you want to build a coal plant you got a big problem.”
Spalding went on to explain that the decision was “painful” because “you got to remember if you go to West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and all those places, you have coal communities who depend on coal... we just think those communities should just go away... it’s painful. It’s painful every step of the way.”See the video here.
