Recent Anti-Coal Rally in Washington Being Called the Largest Anti-Coal Action Ever in the U.S.

I’m all about activism and rallying in support of renewable energy, but we MUST NOT forget the importance of conservation. Afterall, WE are the ones creating the need for coal-fired power plants.

  • Hello and let me say this about the EPA announcing Tuesday its plans to start a registry that would require businesses to report their greenhouse gas emissions, paving the way for possible federal cap-and-trade system. Why just businesses,our automobiles produce a large amount of greenhouse, CO2 gas so why not go all out and register each and every car in America. I'm sure China will follow suit being there the third largest economy and they burn 300 times the coal America does for there use, but we don't breath Chinese air now do we ? Remember the alamo !
