Instead of blocking regulation of coal plants in the name of jobs, why don’t politicians support growing jobs through new renewable industries?

    A 2010 report by Synapse Energy Economics established that the U.S. federal government provides, to this day, billions of dollars of subsidies for the coal industry, in the form of tax breaks and otherwise. So it sounds like the Federal government has a special relationship with coal companies that has not changed for a number of years, even with todays concerns about clean energy. In the U.S., industrialization was build on coal power and its of the easier and cheaper sources of energy we have. The government has obligations beyond what appears to be in the interest of the environment and green development in general. But really, it should not be surprising that the Federal Government has special interests and relationships that it maintains despite the public good. This is called political corruption. Welcome to modern politics!
