#1 I hope they're $1 bills because paper burns up faster'n coal. Even then it'll take a lot more.

#3 Seriously, that's the problem with capitalism. Guys like him get to keep their ill-gotten earnings and steal them by presuming to own shit, and donate some fraction of their billions to unemploying proletarians.

IF we redistributed all of his theft-by-way-of-ownership money to actual proletarians working for a living we could actually have industry in this country instead of borrowing money from China to get them to ship stuff here.

#4 He should try BUYING a coal mine and just shutting it down/firing everybody on his own if he actually thinks this is necessary and has that kind of money to throw away on crap. Of course, then he wouldn't get that money funneled back to him in all sorts of ways.

#5 Didn't we all die of climate change a few years ago, anyway?

Or was it a lack of "net neutrality"?

It's hard to keep track
