US coal deposits contain 12 X as much energy as all known oil in Saudi Arabia

The Adams Fork Energy project will convert regional coal into premium-grade gasoline, producing 18,000 barrels per day (756,000 gallons US, 2.86 million liters). When fully developed, the Adams Fork project will be the largest coal-to-gasoline project in the world, according to Adam Victor, President and CEO of TransGas Development Systems.

The project team has been issued a permit to construct by the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection and plans to begin work on the site during the second quarter of 2011.

Coal and natural gas, as well as gold that has been proven, is money in the ground...all we need to do is dig it out and process it...but the HNIC hates America and wants to destroy us!

However, big picture:

We are the last country on the planet to have these proven reserves...including oil!

So they want us to consume the world's resources first and then we become king of the world...but we already are king of the world...sigh

Tough to say if these plants will ever be built.

[link to trib.com]

Eight years after the plan was first announced, only some water wells, a concrete pad surrounded by a concrete fence, and a new gravel road from Medicine Bow mark the project’s status.

In 2008, company leaders said the Great Recession had sapped private funding sources. The company sought a $1.7 billion loan guarantee from the U.S. Department of Energy, which shelved the plan in October in the wake of allegations the Obama administration had improperly given similar help to now-defunct solar-panel-maker Solyndra.

Kelly said the company decided to renew its pursuit of private financing for the project in early 2011 because of “the length of time DOE has taken and the constraints they’ve got as far as the loan guarantee process.”

Energy is everywhere in the etheric fabric all around you and all that using coal etc is to provide fuel to tap it and its NOT necessary. for example as to coal fired power plants, the electricity is already there, the coal does NOT make it. wake up, wind and water power does not require coal et all to send electricity down the wires.

producer gas from coal would be easier, as all you need is the coal itself. no need to go to the expense of refining it. the downside, of course, is the ugly producer unit, and having to light it and such. notice they want to produce premium fuel though. corner that performance vehicle market when the oil runs dry

Once NWO is in place things will be less cloudy as now you can chase your tail like you just did.

This is correct in regards to the "big picture". However, no one wishes to destroy the United States - at least no one under control and with the capability to do so.

There is far less energy resources available worldwide than is commonly known. This is the reason for the current and upcoming destabilization of the Middle East. It would be foolish not to use those assets already in place to extract large amounts of energy until gone.

Currently, the world is accepting a paper and electronic system of payment. These payments have little to no intrinsic value and as long as they are accepted, it would be foolish not to give it to those weak areas of the globe.

A portion of the plan is quite obvious. Use the labor and resources of the rest of the planet in order to finish building a military system 3 generations ahead of the current model. Once this is complete, all of the resources of nations under control will be online. The exception is Russia. As I states, there are far less resources than is commonly known and it was required of Russia to activate sooner than necessary.

The US AIRFORCE is already building a coal gasification
plant in order to secure fuel for their fleet.
The hypocrisy of the leftist who are trying to shut
down coal is typical, at the very start of communism
it was thought that enviromentalism would be a tool
to destroy capitalism, but once the commies take over
they are way worse on the earth than the capitalists.
As soon as gas gets expensive enough to justify it,
coal gasification will happen
