More jobs lost, higher electric bills, less food on the table and the EPA is just getting started. I expect to see the economy worsen in 2012 between healthcare and the EPA.

The EPA needs to be erased from our government.

Unfunded - shutdown.

The next republican president could effectively do it with the stroke of a pen by simply firing all of the employees and not paying their utility bills. That’s how easy it is. If they say otherwise, they don’t really mean it when they speak against the EPA.

My electricity already costs me more than 3 times what it did 10 years ago.

If whoever becomes the next president does not deal with the EPA, then they are not worth much. We need to reduce them to a crew of about 5 people.

In other words,

NO mercury (not the slightest bit) allowed to produce electricity but...

....bulbs filled with mercury to burn in each home.

When people start throwing away the “new” mercury contaminated squiggly light bulbs. I wonder if the mercury released by millions of bulbs will equal the coal plants.

They’re aiming for a 90% reduction in mercury at coal burning plants? What about the new light bulbs??? I believe that’s the next move by the EPA: once all the incandescent lights are used up, they will strictly limit the use of the new bulbs because of their mercury content. They want us sitting in the dark, folks! They want us using 15th century wind technology and no electric lights or electricity! Except for them - because they are an integral part of society. Let’s take back our country before it’s too late.

What is the EPA going to do about all of the volcanoes that put out more mercury than mankind can even begin to think about making?

The rule is aimed at coal-fired power plants, mandating among other things a 90 percent reduction in mercury emissions...astounding - at the same time they push this rule, they're requiring the country to abandon incandescent lighting in favor of systems like CLF bulbs, which contain high levels of mercury and practically demand a visit from your local hazmat unit for cleanup if one accidentally breaks - these people truly are psychotic......
