At the direction of the President I assume.
What the hell are they going to plug all those electric cars into?
The marxist takeover is almost complete...but there will be a civil war prior to the announcement of the victor. It’ll be short, but I’m old anyway. Sad.
Every EPA Nazi should be dragged out from behind the desk and into the street and hanged.
The EPA doesn’t mind killing our country, businesses and families. Time to return the favor.
Under my plan, electricity costs will necessarily skyrocket.
Disband the EPA. Next adminstration..put Inhofe in charge
I’m curious how many FReepers filed a formal comment against this rule during the comment period.
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.
I have a suggestion for an agency they can reduce spending to $0.00.
I was told by a family member that the EPA is already in coal fired plants issuing fines for anything and everything. Heard one plant got fined 250k for not having permits for work that was done to a boiler in the early 80’s.
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.
I Read the comments at the link.
THOSE PEOPLE IN WISCONSIN ARE INSANE..........
Great post & thread. Thanks to all.
DEFUND/(DISMANTLE/DESTROY when necessary), socialist collectives, foreign and domestic.
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.
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.”
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.
