TVA Shutters Coal Plants

The war on coal continues.

The war on coal continues. The latest attack comes courtesy of TVA who announced the closing of eight more coal-fired power plants – 6 in Alabama and 2 in Kentucky. “The decision was prompted by a combination of environmental requirements, the age of the plants, competition from natural gas and declining electricity consumption in the TVA’s service area,” according to The Washington Post. The real blame falls on the Obama administration who has effectively strangled the industry with burdensome regulations intended to close America’s remaining coal plants. Recall earlier this year when White House adviser Daniel Schrag said “a war on coal is exactly what’s needed.” The real war will be fought in states with a high proportion of coal workers as they try to figure out how to make do with much less – all thanks to the pseudo-religion of global climate change.
