China's ravenous appetite for coal is leading to booming exports and profits for coal miners in the US. Should we really be exporting coal to China at the same time we complain about the global warming caused by their coal fired power plants. China can ban coal exports, but so can the United States (or at least slap a gigantic carbon tax on them)

Evidently we are also exporting old closed-down coal plants. You must read this.

Environmental Leader told us how we ("green tech leaders") can open up a $104 Billion market in green technology products.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
