Here's the San Francisco Chronicle video (not just audio) of Barack Obama discussing his cap and trade plan that would result in bankrupting new coal power plants. For the transcript of what's on the tape, see this. Note that there's a elision in there somewhere; if anyone has a full transcript of the whole interview that might be useful but I guess that's too much to ask.
Note especially this:
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... ...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...
What's on the audio at the link above but not on the video is this bit:
So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can... It's just that it will bankrupt them.
Please send the video or this page to everyone you can find in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and other coal states.
