Environmentalists Bragging About 'Taming' Obama

Grist Mag is reporting that some traditional environmentalists have forced Senator Barack Obama to back off of support for coal-to-liquids. Message to Senator Obama: If you do not agree with EVERTHING the mainstreamers take as dogma, they will be dissatisfied with you. They can take your 'clarification' as surrender because they desperately want to control you, but we know you run by logic and science. So be prepared to lose some extremist votes. Clean coal will be needed to feed the energy thirst of our super power. Why do you think they call it 'super?' The Center supports CTL based on national security and believes such production should be directed primarily to and for the military.

Senator Obama's coal-to-liquids legislation is reasonable, particularly from a national security point of view. This fuel should be developed, if for no other reason than, to serve as a secure reserve for our military. Germany fueled its insane war machine on coal liquefaction in its final days. AAEA supports your bill and we appreciate your 'clarification:' Senator Obama will not support the development of any coal-to-liquid fuels unless they emit at least 20 percent less life-cycle carbon than conventional fuels. AAEA also supplements Senator Obama's clarification: CTL producers should be required to finance nuclear plants, solar power and wind turbines as carbon dioxide offsets.

Finally, Senator Obama should ask the mainstream environmental movement why it insists on maintaining its status as the most segregated sector of American society. Since he was targeted for special attention, he should target this segregated sector to address its racism.
