EPA's Jackson: 'Just Go Away, Coal-Country Folks'

There's no other way to phrase it.  Even EPA officials know it.

...We are struggling because we are trying to do our jobs. Lisa Jackson has put forth a very powerful message to the country. Just two days ago, the decision on greenhouse gas performance standard and saying basically gas plants are the performance standard which means if you want to build a coal plant you got a big problem. That was a huge decision. You can’t imagine how tough that was. Because you got to remember if you go to West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and all those places, you have coal communities who depend on coal. And to say that we just think those communities should just go away, we can’t do that. But she had to do what the law and policy suggested....--quoted at The Blaze


So, on a "suggestion" of 'law' and 'policy' (which really means policy--not "law"--Lisa Jackson is nuking coal communities.

How very nice.
