ABSTRACT
The author talks about labor leaders' call for U.S. President Barack Obama to give coal a fair treatment under his environmental policy. He cites that labor leaders claim that failure to make changes in the New Source Performance Standard for Greenhouse Gas Emissions would force new power plants to abandon coal. He adds that labor leaders note that efforts to control carbon emissions from plants may lead to job losses. He explains why labor and radical environmental activism cannot coexist.
