If I were God of the world, I would force ALL coal fired electric plants in the USA to close immediately. Then I would sit back and watch all these EPA/greenie/environmental assholes complain about the brownouts and rising cost of electricity. After a couple of months I would force all nuclear plants to shut down and enjoy my popcorn. A couple of months later ditto with the gas powered plants. And when the bitching got real bad I would say, live with your stupid wind turbine farms and solar panels. You got what you wanted. END OF DISCUSSION.

What you described here is what is actually happening right now.

I’m sick and tired of these government agencies being allowed to issue new rules as they see fit. How about a constitutional amendment forbidding any government agency from passing and enforcing new rules unless those rules have been voted on and passed by both houses of congress?

Agreed, these agencies are being used by politicians to push agendas they can’t get passed through the normal lawmaking process.

All this for a hoax called global warming

government doesn't work and must be abolished except for military and border control.

there is record ice growth in the Arctic during this summer. I think the ice sheet grew by 60% over last year. and for 30 years the government has been funding fake studies to create the global warming hoax. the media has been screeching global warming for 30 years. it's all to destroy capitalism, destroy our freedom and our economy

The states with tons of power plants need to cut the lines leading out of state and keep that energy to themselves.

If the people of California want to live in the dark let them.

We are definitely building new power plants, just not ones that produce cheap energy.

First it was the oil refineries . . .

And since it wasn't my gas or electricity that would necessarily skyrocket.....oh, wait...

Except that those states are making a killing selling their excess power.

I can't quite remember what the dogs did. The pigs, of course, were in charge. The horses did anything the pigs told them (except for Mollie, who wisely left). Benjamin saw what was going on, but didn't rebel. What did the dogs do?

Well Texas has the only electrical grid independent from the rest of the nation. When we are producing all our power from Fracking produced natural gas we will have a huge competitive advantage vs the other states.

When we first moved there, I couldn't understand Texas not wanting to sell her excess power. Or to be able to import power in the event of an emergency.

Now - it seems very wise.

Bette yet, figure out how much power is generated by “green” methods the environmentalists support and use that figure to determine how many hours the power is on. Also refuse to refuel their eeeeevil polluting diesel generators.

This was known before the 2008 election yet the coal miners still voted for hussein

You are 100% correct. The day before hussein's first election win here in western PA, the commercials pretty much said you vote for this guy, kiss your job goodbye. And what did the idiot union members do?
too bad, so sad assholes. We tried to warn you. I hear this winter is supposed to be one cold son of a bitch. Enjoy paying through the nose to keep your place warm..ahahah...

This is what happens when Congress creates agencies and abdicates it’s power to them, i.e. the president is the defacto king and can make up any rule that he wants.

Exactly. If the EPA is going to make new laws and assume a governing position then We The People should be allowed to elect and/or the leadership of the EPA.

De-fund the EPA now!

the EPA at the very least should be stripped of its regulatory powers.

Absolutely! All they need is a receptionist and a cleaning lady. Better yet, a receptionist/cleaning lady.

*What did the dogs do?*

The dogs were raised to be vicious and carried out the plans of the pigs (Socialist leaders).
