Obama’s Big Carbon Crackdown Readies for Launch
This could be what finally collapses our country.
Check it out:
The EPA is about to impose a new regulation that will reduce carbon emissions from existing power plants starting June 2 and will become permanent in 2015. The new regulation, according to Politico, is the “most dramatic anti-pollution regulation in a generation.” Because the new regulation will further cripple the coal industry, as coal-burning plants will be severely affected, American power will become more dependent on natural gas, solar and wind.
In a case of strange bedfellows, environmentalists and the GOP may both be quite happy with the Obama Administration’s continued “War on Coal.” One environmentalist, Kyle Aarons at the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions, was pleased, saying, “This rule is the most significant climate action this administration will take.” Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) an environmentalist supporter, encouraged the EPA to “go ahead boldly” with the proposed rule.
But the GOP is looking forward to the EPA’s action, feeling that it will backfire in the 2014 elections in states that are strong energy-producing states West Virginia, Kentucky and Louisiana. The coal industry has been reeling from the power plants that have been closed; and even some Democrats are attacking the EPA’s proposed changes.
