Al Armendariz, EPA Chief Ousted For "Crucifying" Energy Industry, Joins Sierra Club

When video surfaced earlier this year of EPA's regional administrator Al Armendariz comparing his strategy for regulating the oil and gas industry as the EPA's regional head to crucifixion, Republicans gladly accepted the former SMU professor's proffered head. Then, when they asked him to Washington to be pilloried in person, he had the audacity to stand them up in favor of the lefties at the Sierra Club.

We learned today that Armendariz might not have been giving Congress the finger so much as extending his hand to his future employer. The Sierra Club announced today that, come mid-July, Armendariz will join the environmental group as part of their Beyond Coal campaign.

Per the Sierra Club, "Dr. Armendariz will draw on his scientific expertise working on air, water, and climate science to help move Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas off coal-fired electricity and toward an economy powered by job-generating clean energy sources such as wind and the sun."

As expected, the press release makes no mention of crucifixion. That's a tool of government bureaucrats, and Armendariz is at the Sierra Club now. No, this is jihad.

Right, because 20 years of working a single jack in an underground mine translates directly to a new job in the wind turbine industry.

The US has about a 300 year supply of coal. Perhaps it would make more sense to fund research into methods to capture and sequester coal emissions rather than rely on unproven and uneconomical wind and solar projects.
