House Democrat Leader Nancy Pelosi has restarted the War on Coal initiated by (now former) President Obama. According to Fox News, Pelosi is supporting the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal initiative to shut down more than a third of US coal fired power plants by 2020.
Hillary Clinton supported a similar initiative for her 2016 Presidential campaign and it was one of the determining factors that lead to her defeat in her quest for the White House. Pelosi made an appearance at an environmentalist function Thursday in California saying that the campaign to shut down coal industry is essential.
Below is a clip from a n interview she did that was taken three weeks ago. Notice how she laughs and insults coal power along with West Virginia during her remarks. With midterm elections around the corner no Democrat should be elected to office and she does not deserve to be House Speaker.
