Read my lips: NO NEW COAL!

September 23rd, 2008

So Obama/Biden and McCain/Palin are in a pissing contest trying to see who can do the most spectacular flip-flop and double talk about coal.

An ABC headline says:

Biden says no to coal plants in America

It’s on msnbc too:

The clean coal kerfuffle

… and the article has him praising coal gasification:

Ohio remarks were evidence that the Democratic pair opposes clean coal as “another ham-handed lying attack from the McCain campaign.”

“This is yet another false attack from a dishonorable campaign,” said Biden spokesman David Wade. “Sen. McCain knows that Sen. Obama and Sen. Biden support clean coal technology. Sen. Biden’s point is that China is building coal plants with outdated technology every day, and the United States needs to lead by developing clean coal technologies.”

“If Senator McCain is so committed to clean coal,” Wade wondered, “then why hasn’t he joined Senators Obama and Biden in announcing their support for the bipartisan energy proposal before the Senate today that would invest billions in clean coal projects?  He should explain why his support for tax breaks for big oil outweighs his support for clean coal.”

Earth to Biden, your state of Delaware knows enough to reject, REJECT, coal gasification, in favor of the first offshore wind project in the US, paired with gas for dispatchability.  You can read the PSC Order and the PSC staff report explaining why right here:

Delaware – first offshore wind in US?

So I guess it’s time to send another email to the Obama campaign — Jeff Blodgett, are you listening to this coal crap?
