EPA’s Killer MACT ^ | Jan 5, 2012 | Emerging Corruption

Posted on 01/05/2012 7:52:25 AM PST by csd

To understand how the Environmental Protection Agency operates, one must first understand that it lies all the time. Its “estimates” are bogus. Its claims of lives saved are bogus.

It thrives on scare-mongering to a public that is science-challenged, but the science remains and the EPA must be challenged to save the nation from the loss of the energy it needs to function. It must be challenged to unleash the huge economic benefits of energy resources—coal, oil, and natural gas—that can reverse our present economic decline.

The latest outrage is the MACT rule—an acronym for “maximum achievable control technology” intended to reduce mercury emissions and other trace gases. The rule is 1,117 pages long. Its purpose is to shut down coal-fired power plants that generate over fifty percent of all the electricity used daily in the United States of America.

The EPA operates within the context of laws already on the books. The problem is the laws. Take away the EPA’s free reign to operate like this and they won’t be allowed to make some of the ridiculous rulings they have.

***...intended to reduce mercury emissions and other trace gases.***

And just how many people can be proven to have been made sick by these trace gases? Or will they just pull numbers from their rectal area as “proof”.

Funny that they’re so worried about mercury, when at the same time, they’re forcing us to use light bulbs that are full of the stuff and require a hazmat team to clean up if they break.
