Due to normal chemical reactions in the mine, they fill with carbon monoxide, and methane. Both of which then have to be pumped out and fresh air pumped in. Doing this has two main problems. Carbon Monoxide is heavier than air and settles into low spots making it hard to get out. The second is easy for even liberals who have lit their farts know, methane is explosively flammable.

Quite simply, as posed by API, the EPA exceeded their authority and ignored logic to foist a phantom “alternate fuel” onto the American people in quantities far too vast to be considered realistic. Their target production for 2012 was almost 500 times beyond the capability of the fuel “producers.”

Think about that. The US uses about 100 quadrillion British Thermal Units of energy per year. A BTU is the heat of one kitchen match; a quadrillion is...
