When staffers for Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn's Natural Resources Committee accused an environmental activist of trafficking in child porn, it revealed just how far this pro-coal supporter will go to make his point.

Coal, gas and wind are all blowing hot air. This action is reprehensible!

Perhaps Lamborn and his staff should be forced to drink unfiltered water shipped in from Appalachia. Then, they can experience first-hand what their precious coal is doing to the people of this endangered region.

Maybe Congressman Lamborn should come to Appalachia and see for himself just how bad the coal industry has treated this region and it's people. My guess is he won't as he is to busy accepting money from these environmental criminals. Thanks Cal for posting the article. Read and noted.

Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn of Colorado saw a picture of a five-year old girl sitting in a bathtub filled with brown water and the only thing that concerned him was that the picture might be considered "pornographic"? This man is either a nut job from the religious right or, more likely, a loyal supporter of his corporate masters who saw that a child was getting sympathy from people who saw the photo and wanted to make sure that the photo would be removed from the presentation.

What a guy!!!

I'd like to see some "clean coal" - and I'd like to see the commercials on tv show the regions where coal has been mined. And then I'd like to see the Repugs all forced to live there for a few years.
