Which is worse, Obama’s plan to shut down coal plants, or McConnell’s ‘plan’ to fight it?
President Obama is about to release a plan to fight imaginary global warming by shutting down many coal fired power plants. Coal fired power plants produce a lot of carbon dioxide, which is a key element in the imaginary theory that CO2 causes global warming. I say imaginary because (1) there hasn’t been any global warming in 18 years, (2) man-made CO2 accounts for only about 3% of global CO2, which is mostly natural, and (3) CO2 is a tiny percentage of the upper atmosphere, and is not present in enough volume to be substantially trapping heat.
But Obama’s plan to shut power plants is very real. To use one of his favorite words, he’s on an “Environmental Crusade,” only his target this time isn’t Christianity, but the electricity that powers our homes and businesses. Obama wants to replace coal with wind and solar, which is exponentially more expensive and unreliable in times of darkness (which seems to happen every day!) and times of little wind.
