It’s not enough to open the borders and give millions of illegal aliens work permits to compete for Southern jobs in a depressed economy … Obama also has to kill the coal industry in Alabama with his executive orders:
“BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Alabama Power announced Friday that federal environmental mandates are forcing them to close two of the state’s coal-fired units and transition two others from coal to natural gas, resulting in a reduction in workforce that the company hopes to avoid by transferring employees to other locations.
Because of rules tied to federal environmental regulations, Alabama Power will close two smaller coal units at Plant Gorgas in Walker County. Two more units at Plant Barry, in Mobile County, will cease using coal but will remain available on a limited basis using natural gas. A third coal unit at Barry will begin using gas, but its capability will not be impacted as significantly as the other two units, according to a release by Alabama Power. …”
Note: The South is experiencing record cold temperatures this summer. We’re also having an unusually mild hurricane season.
