I caught last night's CNN interview with media mogul Ted Turner, Jr. on the topic of energy. He praised the climate bill introduced yesterday by Sens. Kerry and Lieberman and said transitioning to a clean energy economy is a "political no-brainer" that will create green jobs for America. He touted renewable energy and trashed offshore oil drilling, noting that the Gulf Coast disaster should have everyone second-guessing the risks to our precious coasts. And he also blasted coal mining, saying:
"I don't like knocking the mountains down in West Virginia to make coal. I like the mountains."
Check out the video. His criticism of mountaintop removal coal mining comes at the 1:53 minute mark.
