Coal Executive Attacks Global Warming With His Miners Trapped Below

We have called Robert Murray of Murray Energy a jerk before here and here, but now we can add "insensitive and heartless fool" to our description. Six of his miners are trapped underground after an accident and he holds a press conference; and attacks global warming and restrictions on coal mining.

"Without coal to manufacture our electricity, our products will not compete in the global marketplace against foreign countries...and people on fixed incomes will not be able to pay their electric bills," Murray forcefully declared in the press conference, as broadcast by CNN. "And every one of these global warming bills that has been introduced in Congress to date eliminates the coal industry and will increase your electric rates four to five-fold."

We are certain that gave great comfort and solace to the families of the six. ::Raw Story, and ::Salt Lake City Tribune
