The Obama administration has declared war on coal, with the stated objective of saving the planet by closing down all coal fired electric generation plants. They care not that a very sizeable percentage of the American electrical grid is supplied by coal fired plants, and shutting them down will mean less electricity for the rest of us, with resulting brownouts and spiking unemployment. It doesn’t matter to the radical environmentalists in charge of energy policy under Obama, the planet comes first, even though the planet is in no danger from anyone, being big enough to take care of itself. I spoke to an ardent environmentalist named Verdi the other day, and he was quite sanguine about the prospect of no electricity. He said he didn’t like the way his neighbors despoiled the earth by consuming huge amounts of coal fired generated electricity.


I have my new electric car

And solar panels too

And geo thermal is by far

The best that you can do

My bike I’ve fixed to generate

Electric power when

The Gaia whom we venerate

Gets mad at us and then

She shuts down all the power plants

And leaves us in the dark

And so you see it takes one glance

To see that it’s a lark

To live again as we once did

With sunlight as our guide

We didn’t have a power grid

And no one ever died

Because the hospitals were closed

No operating rooms

Back then it never was supposed

There’d be electric looms

To weave the cloth to make the shirts

To wear to work the fields

The spinning wheels were run by skirts

With low production yields

And yet the folks were happier

Much closer to the soil

Although their lives were crappier

They loved the life of toil

So that is why I want to close

The coal plants and rely

On wind and solar and who knows

I’ll watch my neighbors die
