Why are libs opposed to making America energy independent with clean coal?

Coal is the pathway to prosperity. It's what built this country and what made this country great. The EPA and its regulations are destroying the coal industry, destroying American jobs and making America less safe.

    Coal is not clean. Mining for coal is one of human's most destructive activities, including war. Mountain top removal permanently destroys some of the most biologically diverse and rich areas of the world (appalachia has more tree species diversity in 1 acre than all of europe; more salamander and mussel species are found here than anywhere else)

    Therefore why mine for coal, kill the forests and the stream headwaters.

    We can simply be more efficient and save some 25-40 % of our needs, if we were serious. Coupled with alternatives and natural gas from fracking, we have all we need without killing the very land that made us great, gives us hunting and fishing and fresh water

    HAHAHAHA you believe coal can be clean! Listen, clean coal is just normal, dirty, coal, with the word clean in front of it. Do you really want coal polluting the air? And also, we are already moving past the days of coal and oil. Why are cons opposed of moving us into the future where coal and oil aren't needed?

    There is no clean coal.

    You got punked badly. Seriously look it up. There are no clean coal plants in the USA and never have been. There are no "clean coal" plants running anywhere in the world.

    The cleanest coal power plant in the entire world emits more particulate pollution, carcinogens, and CO2 of than the dirtiest oil or natural gas or nuclear plant.

    Because there is no such thing as clean coal.

    Why are American conservatives the only group of people on the planet who deny the facts about global warming?

    99% of scientists agree man-made global warming is real

    99% of countries around the world agree man-made global warming is real

    The ONLY people who deny it are American conservatives who personally stand to profit from coal and oil!

    Figure it out, you poor brainwashed fool.
