Skip to comments.EPA finalizes stricter air pollution rules for Wisconsin, other states
Posted on 07/07/2011 6:36:17 PM PDT by Jean S
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday finalized stronger regulations for Wisconsin and 26 other states aimed at curbing air pollution from long-distance sources.
The rules will help those states fight ozone and particle pollution caused by power plants in Illinois, Indiana and other states.
But Wisconsin utilities - whose pollution can contribute to air-quality problems elsewhere - will also need to find ways to reduce their own emissions.
The likely result: Higher electric bills in the coming years.
A group of power companies known as the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity called the action one of the most costly crackdowns on coal ever.
Nationwide, the EPA estimated utilities will spend $1.2 billion next year and $800 million in 2014 to comply with the rule.

It will take decades — DECADES — to fix what this lame ass, idiot-ridden administration fraks up in 4 years.... =.=
“Nationwide, the EPA estimated utilities will spend $1.2 billion next year and $800 million in 2014 to comply with the rule.”
Uhhh.....no, they won’t. Not one dime will “they” spend.
They really dont care what anyone has to say. All it would accomplish is get your name on a watch list as a possible threat. ........
I Read the comments at the link.
THOSE PEOPLE IN WISCONSIN ARE INSANE..........
Any candidate that would abolish the EPA gets my vote. The EPA is out of control and needs to be stopped.
Q How much polluton has the Obananas, the Clintons and Gore produced in the past year. We need jobs, viable businesses and factories in America,
not onerous regulations by the power hungry EPA.
Great post & thread. Thanks to all.
DEFUND/(DISMANTLE/DESTROY when necessary), socialist collectives, foreign and domestic.
Bwahahahaha.... either you are frighteningly naive, or clueless. Do you honestly mean to suggest to us that the Marxists honestly care about what people say? You mean those who would object wouldn't be summarily dismissed, or executed, for being climate deniers? Pffft...
People keep saying there is going to be a civil war. With guns and everything.
But ma and I don’t believe it one bit. Not one bit.
Those lazy Americans - livin in their big fancy cities. Why they ain’t gonna get up off their lazy butts and fight no war.
Ain’t seen a single shot fired either - but keep hearin about that war - keep hearin about it
Been hearin about it few years
Yet not a single shot fired - nun that I no of
Me thinks the war was lost a long time ago
They just picken up the scrap now
Both figures are BS. Coal plant scrubbers can cost hundreds of millions each plant. With something like 900 affected plants across the east, no way I believe the price tag is only a couple billion.
As for the hundreds of billions in health benefits, well...this smells like the millions of jobs that have been "saved" under BO's reign of terror: pure fiction.
Wisconsin should ignore the EPA and warn any attempt at force closing their plants will be the end of the EPA in this State. Time to get angry and warn Washington they are done. Why the States continue to put up with this rotten communists Washington group is beyond me.
Rural people place a higher value on independence and hard work.
Look at the American versus French revolutions.Which one resulted in less bloodshed and more freedom?
we’re going to vote this criminal out and trim the EPA and it’s ability to do this crap.....they are unelected and out of control.
maybe Madam President can lock the doors and send them home...
That’s not all. Some radical environmentalist states with very smoky, coal-fired plants in their major cities are immune to the consequences of their political efforts.
BTW, you’ll see in the map key, “States not covered by the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule.”
“All Bachmann would need to do is state that on her first day in office she would dismantle the EPA, and she would win by the biggest landslide in history.”
Add the NEA to that statement and I’d recommend she be made Queen of the United States.
The EPA should be defunded, along with the Dept of Ed, Energy, and others. (preaching to the choir, I know)
I guess it’s too much to hope for that our next president will slash and burn these agencies that are strangling our nation.
Every EPA Nazi should be dragged out from behind the desk and into the street and hanged.
I prefer lead poisoning with no hood.
