Bush Energy Nominee Worked for Company with Record of Safety, Environmental Violations


www.cnbc.com

Stanley C. Suboleski would oversee development of clean-coal technology and other fossil-fuel projects.

Suboleski is a former executive for Massey Energy, one of the nation's largest coal producers, which faces an estimated $2.4 billion in threatened federal fines for more than 4,000 alleged environmental violations in the past six years at its West Virginia and Kentucky coal operations.

Suboleski was the company's chief operating officer from 2001 to 2003 and continues to work as an independent contractor for the company.

Now, does this make ANY sense whatsoever?

WHY would anybody in their right mind put somebody in control, nationally, of clean-coal technology and other fossil-fuel projects who OBVIOUSLY could care less about the environment?

This guy STILL works for a COAL COMPANY!

Do you think he is going to do anything in a top Energy Department post (assistant secretary for fossil energy) that would cause the coal mining industry any problems, slow down their production, or increase the cost of producing coal or anything at ALL that might affect "THEIR" profits?



"An ideal person is someone who can look at both sides of the issues and suggest way that we might move forward with fossil fuels and still decrease harm to the environment," said J. Davitt McAteer, former director of the Mine Safety and Health Administration. "I'm not sure that job criteria and Mr. Suboleski's background are a good match."



The company he used to work for and now consults for HAS more than 4,000 alleged environmental violations in the past six years!

I really don't think he's doing a very good consulting job there, so, HEY,let's just put him in charge of the whole countries clean-coal technologies to save our environment! (sarcasm of course)

It's ridiculous to think this guy actually is the "best man for the job".
