Gang Green Opens New Front in War on U.S. Economy

Dark Days Ahead

Dark Days Ahead if Eco-socialists have their way

MORE WAR ON THE POOR – by Donny Ferguson

The Sierra Club, Greenpeace and other eco-socialist organizations are now waging an all-out war to outlaw surface coal mining in Appalachia (before you gasp at the term “eco-socialist” refer to its page on Wikipedia).  Not only is it the safest and most efficient way to extract badly-needed coal, it’s the only thing keeping food on the table for countless families in some of this country’s poorest regions (see video here).

Their goal is simple.  Outlaw coal mining so energy prices will skyrocket, forcing Americans to engage in less capitalist activity. It’s called “demand destruction” and it’s the defining difference between reasonable conservationists like WTP members and true eco-socialists.

And if families literally starve, as many do in Appalachia when the mines don’t operate — too bad.  They’re simply chalked up as “collateral damage” in Gang Green’s war on the American economy.

This is a war radical environmentalists are taking deadly seriously.  They’re not willing to bet all their chips on “Cap and Tax” legislation they’ll try to ram through this spring.

They need to shut down coal mining to achieve their openly stated goal:

“We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects . . . We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of tens of millions of acres of presently settled land.” — David Foreman, Earth First!

And who can forget Barack Obama’s January 17, 2008, interview with the San Francisco Chronicle (excerpted in the same video), in which he openly stated that if elected his policies would seek to “bankrupt” the coal industry.

That means drastically higher utility bills for you, millions of jobs lost as employers struggle to pay higher production and energy costs, and cruel human suffering – as seen in the already economically-vulnerable Appalachian region.

Call your Senators today and tell them “I oppose Cap and Tax!”, and tell them to support american jobs by supporting

responsible development of American Energy!

See the list below list of those who are up in 2010 (below), and here’s a link to their contact information.

Join WTP an help save American jobs!
