I’m thinking the power companies should band together and have a National Day Without Coal- shut down all coal powered generation and let the public see just how dependent they are on this cheap, reliable, clean energy source.

  1. The bad thing for the Unions is the Obamanation said what he was going to try to do. As that great Amurican Forrest Gump said “Stupid is as stupid does.” I feel utterly nothing for the unions.

    OTOH, I do feel for the rest of the US as many of us did not vote for the idiot in the WH. I wish we could have a day without coal, but unless you kept the turbines spinning and simply took the generators off line, you would have about 3 days without coal before it’s over.

    It takes about 3 days from light off to placing the generators online. According to the operators of the steam plant I visited back in ’74, they have to spin the turbines 24-36 hours to allow everything to stabilize before the generator can be places online to supply power. You’d have a very angry country, and a bunch of spoiled food, on your hands when that was over.

  2. Coal company unions are the very definition of “useful idiots”. With nurses’ unions coming in a close second.

    Obammunism will crush both of those industries in the name of his bright, bold Socialist future, where all we need is provided by our most generous of benefactors, the Federal Government.
