YearlyKos: Obama and coal
So, lots to talk about, but for now: I’m in a candidate forum with Barack Obama and he was just asked directly about coal. He dodged and weaved, said there would have to be a "transition," and that there would need to be "investments," etc. etc.
He did, however, very strongly back the 80 percent by 2050 target, and backed a 20% national RPS. So there’s that.
