Presidential candidate Bloomberg has a TV ad saying he intends on helping to shut down polluting coal plants. Haven’t the coal powered operations nationwide been subject to tremendous restrictions on pollution? It seems to me they are required to have very expensive air filter systems, monitoring and pollution controls? Why aren’t the companies and people affected up in arms about this misleading hit on the coal industry?

My understanding is Obama closed a lot of the coal plants not in compliance (or too expensive to retrofit). Compliant plants use a diesel like DPF filter to catch the soot, etc. Maybe Trump rolled back some of it thus the rationale for Bloomberg's comments?

Oh NO! Not that guy!

Either that or from some people's perspectives, even clean coal is dirty.

Let's shut down all of the coal plants so all of the Tesla's won't be able to charge...

Ok, maybe there's a flaw in my plan...

Typical response from politicians - pandering to their base about issues they probably have very little real knowledge about. They care about getting into office and power - thats about it...
My attitude is, if we can use coal to produce power (clean burn) then we should. I would imagine the coal plants in the US are pretty clean.

Many coal fired plants have shut down and most of those remaining are already moving toward natural gas. His comments are basically a red herring to get attention.

Solution = Pumped Storage Hydropower

The grid requires spinning turbine generators. With the big generators going away at coal plants, we need to fill that in, or things WON'T work.

The first big one in the USA in decades may begin construction in 2020. If that happens, many follow.

Facts, reason, logical thinking...not on the table with these types.
Its narrative, feelings and religious like self-righteous fervor that matters.
Coal is evil, clean coal is still evil. Actual effect on the planet isn't relevant. Your devotion to the cause of coal being evil is.
Sort of like if you are not a democrat you are a racist. Inanimate objects like guns are evil and only owned by evil people. If you think immigration controls are a reasonable idea.... yeah goes on and on.

Simple solution, build nuke plants.

Bloomberg already bought Virginia with his gun ban scheme. Guy is like a locust. Why don’t guys like him ever die young? I’ll piss on his grave. Funny thing with the Dems talking about Global warming is they all think they can actually control the weather. What horse shit. Unless they come out and say they will nuke China they have no substance. I for one pray for global warming. I’m a farmer and would love longer growing seasons. China and India are the sources of carbon emissions. They also don’t understand Carbon Dioxide is not a poison. Plants love it and want more, more, more!

In most places they get priority parking to suck the free energy down. Us nasty gas guzzlers can park in the rear and get some good exercise walking.
