Obama prometió llevar al cierre o la quiebra a las centrales térmicas de carbón en enero de este año

Tengo ganas de acabar con el caso Obama, pero esto es tremendo. Básicamente dijo que va a sangrar a las centrales térmicas de carbón a base de impuestos para financiar energías limpias (a ver si algún voluntario lo traduce):

Let me sort of describe my overall policy.

What I’ve said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else’s out there.

I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.

That will also generate billions of dollars that we can invest in solar, wind, biodiesel and other alternative energy approaches.

The only thing I’ve said with respect to coal, I haven’t been some coal booster. What I have said is that for us to take coal off the table as a (sic) ideological matter as opposed to saying if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it.

Con cuentas de la lechera como estas llegó a la Casa Blanca. Le llaman «triunfo de la democracia».
