What happens when you shut down the coal fired generators that the EPA wants to do? I don’t think the greenies thought about that or they plain don’t care if we turn into a 3rd world country.

You can’t make up the difference with wind or solar. They are not going to build anymore nuke plants, we are probably tapped out on hydroelectric plants. Only one left is natural gas, but can that feel in the gap from coal? Only time will tell. I expect to see brownouts and rolling blackouts in the future.

Answer (stating the obvious here): energy gets really expensive. That means heating your home (for some) and lighting your house, cooking meals, cooling your house in the summer, will become really expensive. Since everything we consume is touched but energy and specifically electricity, everything will be a lot more expensive to produce — food, etc. So the cost of everything goes up.

Apparently the EPA are so driven by their agenda that they don't think about the consequences. And the people who vote for the people who support the EPA are just as ignorant.
