Obama Administration: ‘A War on Coal Is Exactly What’s Needed’

Via Daniel Halper, a complement to Governor Palin’s warning yesterday:

Daniel P. Schrag, a White House climate adviser and director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment, tells the New York Times “a war on coal is exactly what’s needed.” Later today, President Obama will give a major “climate change” address at Georgetown University.

“Everybody is waiting for action,” Schrag tells the paper. “The one thing the president really needs to do now is to begin the process of shutting down the conventional coal plants. Politically, the White House is hesitant to say they’re having a war on coal. On the other hand, a war on coal is exactly what’s needed.”

We can’t say we weren’t warned.  Not only by Governor Palin in her RNC speech, but by Obama himself:

Here in Ohio most of our electricity is produced by coal. And why not? It’s cheap, efficient, and abundant. But that’s irrelevant: Obama wants to appease the anthropogenic global warming enthusiasts in his kook base despite the fact no warming has occurred in 16 years. So not only can we Ohioans look forward to an 88% hike in health insurance premiums thanks to Obamacare, but Obama’s ‘necessarily skyrocketing’ electric rates as well. Hope and Change.

Exit Question: What impact will Obama’s war on coal have on the sale of those coal electric-powered cars with which he’s so enthralled?
