Calling it "clean coal," Obama has allowed the continuation of hydrofracking and mountaintop mining real threats to the ecosystem and health that add to the fossil fuel consumption that's pumping green-house gases into the atmosphere.
As crafted by the groups, the new American Clean Energy Agenda calls for a number of bold steps, including: phasing out nuclear power, natural gas, coal and industrial biomass in favor of efficient use of renewable, non-polluting resources; opposition to a "clean energy standard" that includes coal, nuclear, oil, gas and unsustainable biomass; retooling federal "loan guarantees" to make smarter investments in renewable energy; greater emphasis on renewable energy and energy efficiency programs; and avoiding a future in which Americans suffer the consequences of mountaintop mining for coal and fracking of shale gas that is then exported for use in other nations.
Appalachian counties where mountaintop mining is prevalent report that they suffer from poor health significantly more often than residents of other counties, according to a study in the May issue of APHA's American Journal of Public Health.
