Bloomberg calls for closing all coal-fired
power plants to combat climate change

Original Article

Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg is calling for a 50 percent reduction in carbon emissions over the next 10 years to battle climate change. To achieve that goal, the former New York City mayor and multi-billionaire business and media mogul on Friday unveiled a plan that would shutter all 251 remaining coal plants across the country by 2030 and replace them all with clean energy. He would also phase out gas-fired power plants. At a speech in Alexandria, Va., Bloomberg warned that "we have to start working as hard as we can building a 100 percent clean energy economy because

Comments:

What world is he living in? Our area gets 50% of energy from coal. Maybe we'll have to get by without electricity 2 weeks in every month.

If the Democrats get into power it is going to be rough. No power, no meat, no cars, no jobs, no savings--and we will get the bill for other people's education, healthcare, food and housing. The Democrat plan for our future is extreme austerity, and we will not be allowed to complain about it either, as the final say will be with the socialist elite.

The climate change scam needs to be ignored. Choices of fuels for our normal power plants needs to be based on what is most cost effective. Currently, many power plants find that natural gas is available cheaper than coal. But coal is NOT harmful, if burned in a properly designed power plant with scrubbers and systems to capture the ash. Bloomberg is a blooming idiot.

Glad that the "moderate" Bloomberg entered the race. No sodas. No electricity. No trans fats. See if he can sell that idea to China and India. The US is not the problem.

To support #7, in today’s news I read that the Elm Creek natural gas liquids pipeline that runs from the Bakken fracking fields in Montana and North Dakota to a processing center in Bushton, Kansas is now complete and will reduce wasteful flaring of natural gas from wells and can carry 240,000 gallons a day of “Y-Grade natural gas liquids” which carries ethane and propane gases. Eventually that figure can be 400,000 gallons of liquids a day.

The same people that want to eliminate coal power plants have also been trying to eliminate hydro-electric power plants by eliminating dams. Hydro-electric is clean and available 24/7, so why the push to eliminate dams. The reason given is to "restore rivers to historic conditions." It costs a lot of money to remove a dam. and it costs a lot of money to replace a hydro-electric power plant with something else. If that something else is wind or solar, it is not available 24/7. If you want clean and available, it makes sense to build hydro-electric power plant -- not remove them! As for lowering CO2 emissions, that is what plants need to grow. The environmentalist will send us backwards and bankrupt us at the same time.

Coal accounts for over 20% of US power generation. Cut that in half and watch energy prices skyrocket effecting EVERYONE that pays utilities. Watch the economy plunge as people lose their jobs, and close their pocket books because energy prices have increased. Who said Bloomberg is a moderate? He's not. He's much like Obama. As a matter of fact, Obama seemed to model his energy policies after Bloomberg. Obama and Bloomberg have been saying the exact same thing regarding coal. Want to create more energy plants? By all means go ahead. When coal is used for say, less than 5%, of America's energy, we can look into getting off it. Mainly, make sure to have jobs for all the displaced workers associated with the coal industry. Btw, really doubt there is such a thing as clean energy. Until then, GO AWAY.
