COAL-POWER PLANTS
Sen. Manchin urges mining industry to speak out about coal but Democrat won't switch parties

The Democratic senator leading the fight against the White House's strategy to fight climate change is urging the mining industry to speak out about coal's role in providing affordable, reliable power to the country.

Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia spoke Tuesday at the National Western Mining Conference in Denver.

Although he agrees with Republicans that the Obama administration is waging a war on coal, Manchin said he won't consider switching parties to give the GOP control of the Senate this year.

Manchin opposes the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's proposed national limits on greenhouse gas emissions from future power plants.

The agency says coal plants will be able to reduce emissions by capturing and storing carbon. Manchin and other opponents say such technology is years away from being commercially viable.
