They ain’t tripping, their homes are heated with electricity

HOOKSETT, N.H. — Several climate activists protesting coal power attempted to block a train shipment Sunday.

A small group with the No Coal No Gas Campaign protested on the railroad tracks that extend over the Merrimack River off Riverside Street.


Of course the power plant that generates the electricity to run their HVAC systems is powered by coal, but those are just minor details.

    I somehow doubt they are pro nuclear either.

    Good time for the jail to open up that long forgotten holding cell that is two floors below ground level. Too bad if the HVAC system down there no longer works. Wonder how many rats live there these days?

      We have “bail reform” here in NH. Chances are they were bailed out before the ink dried on the paperwork.

      I have maintained for YEARS, that 90% of our social programs merely offset Darwins Laws and is ultimately detrimental to the species!
      Go ahead, prove me wrong!

      Simple, don’t stop the train. Sure, it would only hurt for a moment, then the shock of being tossed into frigid water would take over.

    Base load expansion plant.
    For winter, when NG is going to heat houses.
    As one of my FB friends posted.
    Go to their houses and pull the meter.

    Conversion to natural gas is killing rail coal business. Doesn’t have shit to do with those assholes though.

      Uhmm, if memory serves, Bathhouse Barry had a lot to do with the War on Coal. And, as you know by now, coal is black, and-well-that’s racist.

    There was a police officer who broke his ankle after he slipped and fell. Whether or not it haf something to do with removing a protester remains to be seen. This was also right out side the north end fire station in Hooksett. They should’ve just grabbed a fire hose and soaked them down.

    They also forget what charges their stupid electric vehicles and iPhones.

    I would only dispute one item in your comment. I believe that your quoted figure is approximately 9+ percent low.

    Taxing the stupid will hurt the stupid in their wallets!

    I really think that all the enviro-weenies should be herded into the woods and be provided with bronze age tools, enough food to last until the harvest and seed to grow food for next winter. By the following spring those survivors who haven’t starved and/or frozen to death should appreciate the importance of plentiful energy.
