11/3    Hey, did you know that about 50% of electricity in the US comes from
        coal?
        \_ "Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would
           necessarily skyrocket."
           http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/6016
           \_ cap and trade is silly.  Just plain-old carbon tax on it would
              be a lot more effective
        \_ Currently, most vehicles in the US don't use electricity from
           external sources.

Take off and nuke the site from orbit.  It's the only way to be sure.
           \_ Most houses do though.
        \_ YES.  and do you know that the percentage was a lot higher a
           couple years ago?   And you guys blame China for using coal
           and produce green-house gas.

bankrupt anyone foolish enough to build coal-burning power plants, he also made an interesting admission about his entire energy plan. Obama told the editors that his policies would make energy prices "skyrocket" as the energy industry passed along the exorbitant costs of his cap-and-trade policy: The problem is not technical, uh, and the problem is not mastery of the legislative intricacies of Washington. The problem is, uh, can you get the American people to say, "This is really important," and force their representatives to do the right thing? You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know -- Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I'm capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it -- whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations.
