      Oh, God not those guys.

      Everyone's work schedule gets to be put on hold so wannabe Lance Armstrongs can have their recreation.

      I wonder what goes through their minds when they notice a queue of angry drivers stacked up for half a mile behind them...

        Many is the day that I would love to know that the front bumper of my Jeep Rubicon would be the last thing that went through their minds...

          I wonder what goes through their pea brains when they do things like ride on a hilly two lane highway with minimal shoulders that is posted 65 mph and think that vehicles will always have time to stop behind them when they take up the whole lane riding several abreast at 10 mph.

                Bicyclists cry about the law all the time, but they tend to pick and choose which laws they obey themselves. I'm not talking about the local DWI bikers, I'm talking the serious, $1500 bike, fruity biker shorts crowd. Especially stop signs and red lights.

                Well that argument needs to be a two way street. If you can't make the minimum speed limit, you shouldn't be on the road.

                You want the same rights as a motor vehicle? Then register and insure your bike and get a license. I know that will hurt the kids, but oh well, the bikers have rights!

                      (Snark alert) Sorry to interrupt this circle jerk but are we are SURE that the plummeting world coal price didn't have anything to do with this coal mine shutting down. You would be surprised how often Economics trumps Politics out in the real world...

                      It looks like the mine has been on the wind down for a long time, I have got a 2010 Rio Tinto report that states that it was always due for closure when the Power station contracts run out in 2017. No Nazi's of any sort to see here.

                      "Colowyo Coal Company (Rio Tinto: 100 per cent)

                      Colowyo Coal Company produces thermal coal in northwest Colorado. The company intends to fulfil a long term contract with its sole remaining customer, a power generator located in northwest Colorado. This contract expires at the end of 2017. In the absence of divestment or the development of additional customers, the expiration of the contract will be followed by closure and completion of reclamation of the mine site.
                      "

                      I'd love to do a Due Diligence on this operation, but I would not be surprised if the 'Huge Reserves' that Fox News refer to are real, measured, and economically feasible at $45 per tonne

                        Economics always trump politics... eventually. However...
                        The Colowyo mine, which provides hundreds of jobs and millions of dollars to the economy of the town of Craig, has been open since 1977. But the expansion permit it sought and received from the Office of Surface Mining, Reclamation and Enforcement (OSM) in 2007 did not take climate change into account, according to a lawsuit brought by WildEarth Guardians. That, the environmental group said, violated the 2006 National Environmental Policy Act. A federal judge agreed and, on May 4, gave the agency 120 days to redo the review.

                        This is exactly how Enviromarxist terrorists shut down Shell's first drilling season in the Chukchi Sea. They got a judge to void their permits because carbon emissions from one icebreaker weren't included.

                          Technically, it's a truck, of course.

                          But that doesn't matter, because a Jeep is a Jeep.

                              Thank you. Might have helped had TAG been a little clearer in his response, especially since he rarely if ever agrees with me on anything, but thanks to your brilliant and insightful analysis, all has been cleared up.

                              Do you have an actual comment to make on the subject itself, by any chance? No? Didn't think so.

                                If the coal mine were in the process of closing, why would an environmental group file a motion against them? Eight years after they were granted a permit which did not require an impact statement at the time?

                                As for coal prices, oil is way down, too, but the demand is still there. Currently, China is in the market for all of the fossil fuels it can get its hands on.
