Obama in SF: My policies will bankrupt new coal plants

Senator Obama in SF, California in January 2008:
Quote:
Let me sort of describe my overall policy.
What I’ve said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else’s out there.
I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.
So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.
That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches.
The only thing I’ve said with respect to coal, I haven’t been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as a ideological matter as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it.
So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can.
It’s just that it will bankrupt them.




Greenism is the new paganism. Global Warming is it's prophecy of doom. Obama is willing to operationalize this theory at the expense of the Coal industry - which supplies 50% of the nation's electricity generation. In an Obama administration, the Coal Miner's Daughter might be proud but she'll be outta luck and her daddy could be out of work.

And the MSM just stopped up their ears and heard only what they wanted to hear. I think talk radio, FOX news and right wing blogging is about to explode in popularity. Limbaugh's ratings may double by summer '09 if Obama is elected. There will be plenty to talk about, that's for sure.
I have a feeling that Obama is going to be just as competent in his presidential duties as he has been during his campaign. Reasonable Americans, unlike you, have rejected the smear tactics and the character attacks that have come to define the republican party.

If Rush Limbaugh decides he is going to give Obama the Bill Clinton treatment then I think he will be doing so at his own peril. Just like this election will most likely end the republican party's use of veiled racism to divide this country, a successful Obama presidency has the very real possibility of providing the Rush Limbaughs of the world enough rope to hang themselves.

It is my hope that this election and Obama's ensuing presidency will act as the death knell for the politics of fear and hatred that has propelled the radical right wing of this country.

RIP Rush Limbaugh.
