Dumbama is not satisfied with screwing America, now its the world! Can't say it is unexpected.

By the time he is finished, the 6 million killed by Hitler will look like small potatoes.

"Since he took office, President Barack Obama has been leading a war against mining and use of coal. Now, he is taking it global. His campaign has become a world war."

ANOTHER sophomoric-attempt at "editorial"-writing????

U.S. Coal Exports Set Monthly Record

June 19, 2013 - "Coal exports from the United States in March 2013 totaled 13.6 million short tons, nearly 0.9 million short tons ABOVE the previous monthly export peak in June 2012. EIA is projecting a THIRD STRAIGHT YEAR of more than 100 million short tons of coal exports in 2013, following annual exports in 2011 of 107.3 million short tons and RECORD ANNUAL EXPORTS in 2012 of 125.7 million short tons."

"If the World Bank pursues the new strategy espoused by its president, American Jim Yong Kim, tens of millions of people in poor countries will suffer. It is not stretching the point to predict grinding poverty, of the type low-priced electricity can alleviate, will kill some of them unnecessarily."

So...a health-expert should be encouraging people to die, more SLOWLY....like they are, in China (from coal-fired pollution)??

I'd say Mr. Kim knows a "little"-more about health-issues...than some White-Wing/hack-"editorialist".

"See: U.S. Coal Exports Set Monthly Record..........."

Sham you are beyond ignorant! The editorial speaks to the fact that Dumbama wants use the World Bank to curb the use of coal around the world. So you can cut and paste away and it won't help the miners.

I have come to the conclusion that liberals really are the "stupidist" (Dumbama's word) and most uncaring people on earth. As long as you are able to belly up to the welfare trough to get your share, the he11 with the rest of the world.

I wouldn't know. Since you seem to be the only one who listens to his show, you'll have to tell us what he says.

You seem to hang on his every word...

"I'd say Mr. Kim knows a "little"-more about health-issues...than some White-Wing/hack-"editorialist"."

First of all, he wasn't nominated because he is an MD, but because he obeys the Messiah. Otherwise, why would an MD be nominated to run a world wide financial organization? Oh yes, I forgot......he also has a PhD in anthropology.

Dumbama was the one who nominated global warming supporter Kim to head up the World Bank in the first place!

Dumbama recently made the statement, "However, the tide at the World Bank may be turning."

In his "climate action" speech last month, President Obama called for an end to public financing of dirty coal plants abroad. On the heels of that announcement, the World Bank released a draft energy strategy that would ban funding for new coal generation, with some RARE exceptions.

You can read more in the "Guardian."

I'm sure you can find someone to come down to t

...And, you refuse to ACCEPT the concept that coal is "dead-tech"...much like buggy-whips...primarily, out of laziness.

Sorry...I'm still a Kennedy-devotee...

"...We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and to do to OTHER things NOT because they are easy, but because they are HARD, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the BEST of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to ACCEPT, one we are UNwilling to POSTPONE, and one which we intend to WIN, and the OTHERS, too."

The sooner we have a one WOLD BANK the better.

The Bible tells us that the arrival of a ONE WORLD BANK, one "police force", one world government ... signals the coming of our GOD to collect his people and the world to fend for it's self in it's sinful ways.

I'd imagine THAT "Bon Voyage" party will be SIGNIFICANTLY larger than the one thrown, when the Puritans "escaped" from England.
