Posted on 06/25/2013 5:58:50 AM PDT by GlockThe Vote
WASHINGTON (AP) Taking climate change efforts into his own hands, President Barack Obama is proposing sweeping steps to limit heat-trapping pollution from coal-fired power plants and to boost renewable energy production on federal property.
Obama, in a speech Tuesday at Georgetown University, was to announce he's issuing a presidential memorandum to launch the first-ever federal regulations on carbon dioxide emitted by existing power plants, moving to curb the gases blamed for global warming despite adamant opposition from Republicans and some energy producers.

Obamas climate change plan tackles power plants not refineries
Is there no one in national elected office that will stand against this jackwagon?
This is another pointless “Major Speech” that will be forgotten in a few weeks.
And, as a result, normal, productive citizens will get an increased electrical bill
we’ll have to pay for chosen groups’ electrical bills through our taxes subsidizing their bills.
Ain’t racist social “justice” great?
That’s racist ... < /sarc>
Who has done more damage to us, the government or terrorists?
Hello? Are there any sane political leaders left?
Why yes, I guess it is. HAHAHAHAHAHA!
Want to cut back on energy use? Don’t create some 50 million (12 million illegals and their immediate family members) new Americans through amnesty.
When historians will be looking back for the one single moment when everything changed, the moment when all these years of planning was finally implemented in instituting his master plan, this will be the moment when Obama took control of the power plants that they will single out was the ploy that started it all. The same sort of moments when the Communist mental case started a fire in the Reichstag that had Hitler utilize it to gain full dictatorial power, and it’s like in Terminator 3, the moment when Skynet goes on line. Different scenarios, same history.
what happened to the days when CONGRESS wrote regulations?
Yup. No dinner, no flowers, no kiss and no lube. They plan to use “ridicule” against “deniers”. Bring it on ridiculers. I can hardly wait. Taking a lesson from the ROTUS, “get in their face”.
Amen to that Brother.
Amazed he can find time between vacations to make this announcement.
Your assessment is 80 years too late.
Federal regulations are illegal, period.
Until FDR staged a coup.
The Congress is as useless as the Supreme Court.
Obama be da man.
We is in charge now.
Look left, look right, pause, wait for teleprompter page scroll, repeat.
The lunatics have taken over the asylum. For the moment, the walls are still standing, but the interior is pretty much chaos, with probably a couple of dozen small blazes already ignited, and the stores of flammable materials being scattered about with gay abandon.
First, destroy all the fire extinguishers, then cut off the water flow. Panic the inhabitants, and blame the staff.
What could possibly go wrong with this plan. Of course, the objectives have to be redefined, sometimes from moment to moment, but we are making “progress”.
All the world leaders laugh at Obama, but for some reason, the Republicans still fear him.
But the Emperor runs the show.
Sad, but true.... Not a BALL among them. Not even one.
Not before it gives the Obama boot-licking lamestream media its next set of talking points to knock the IRS/Snowden/Libya/ yadda, yadda yadda scandals off the front page and out of the low information voters minds...
I remember a time, many years ago, when the Constitution laid out the powers of the Three Branches, and established an order on the way things could be accomplished.
Those days are long gone.
Republicans? Don’t hold your breath
Follow the money....who stands to gain from this?
Hussein’s motto: “Anything to hurt America.”
This is Solyndra II—start-ups by Obama donors and cronies will burn through billions before going belly up, leaving taxpayers holding the bag.
Obama is trying to change the subject from his declining approval rating and all of the scandals he is involved in, while at the same time continue to ruining the economy. The dictator-in-chief is at it again!
For instance, in this case, is it so far beyond imagination for someone to ask: "Hmm...This is likely to really hurt our economy. I wonder how much CO2 is being produced by these American power plants as a percentage of CO2 in the Earth's atmosphere?"
Hint: the answer contains many leading "0"s.
But no one is asking.
Congress writes laws. Many of them bad. Bad laws delegate regulation making authority to Executive branch entities, like the EPA. If I worked in the EPA, right now I would be scared witless that I was going to be leaned on like an IRS agent to make political calculations, rather than technical and legal judgments.
I wish we could send his “historic” ass back to Kenya.
Coal will still be mined, but instead of providing energy for this country it will be EXPORTED and burned overseas
“Is there no one in national elected office that will stand against this jackwagon?”
The executive controls all the guns - military and federal agencies. Congress has no power (comes from the muzzle of a gun, remember) except to defund things, and the executive can simply pay with new debt and fiat currency.
This was never about climate control or the environment: “The issue is never the real issue, the real issue is the Revolution. The cause is never the real cause, the real cause is the acquisition of power.”
The Communist coup is almost complete. The final declaration of martial law and the bloody counterrevolution merely awaits some planned event when we are a bit more weakened, and they are a bit stronger.
Democrat Party Job Killing / Economy Killing machine bump for later.......
I detest obama
Or as a caller to a talk show yesterday said, if these people (illegals) are so vital to the economy of America, return them to their homelands and have them strengthen the economy of their various countries.
Obama is just the skin on that rotten apple...
All coal fired plants should shutdown immediately from a at least a week for a review to study their degree compliance and to see who blinks first. Nothing reveals a bad law (regulation) like it’s full enforcement.
Get these damn socialists out of our White House!!!
Will anyone EVER stand up to this goon and just tell him ENOUGH already!
I hope that states can override this insanity!
Hint: the answer contains many leading "0"s.
The answer will be "because it's the right thing to do, right as rain, like snipping the necks of fetuses."
