OUCH: Barack Obama says he'll bankrupt coal powered electricity generators

Barack Obama and coal

The odds-on favourite to win the US Presidency Barack Obama has declared his intention of bankrupting companies that use coal to generate electricity.

If fulfilled in reality, Senator Obama’s rhetoric could have severe implications for Australia.

Democrats say that Obama’s rhetoric attacking coal-fired electricity generation might have been a bit overblown for the San Francisco journalists he was trying to impress. They say that Obama has pledged a big government commitment to clean coal technology and that his opponent Senator McCain is also pledged to a “cap and trade” system on carbon emissions of the same kind being considered by the Australian government.

    Another glaring example that HIS agenda is more important than the hundreds of thousands of workers who will lose their jobs if he “bankrupts” the coal industry.

    He is filled with self-importance and entirely self-serving.
