Obama Moves to Limit Power-Plant Carbon Pollution
ABC News ^ | Sept 20, 2013 | DINA CAPPIELLO, AP

Posted on 09/20/2013 4:03:39 PM PDT by Innovative

Linking global warming to public health, disease and extreme weather, the Obama administration pressed ahead Friday with tough requirements to limit carbon pollution from new power plants, despite protests from industry and Republicans that it would dim coal's future.

Under the law once the Environmental Protection Agency controls carbon at new plants, it will also control carbon at existing plants — a regulation the agency said Friday it would start work on immediately to meet a June 2014 deadline.

The revised standards, the company said in a statement, "essentially eliminate coal as a future generation option."

That would have been unimaginable in my youth; most unfortunately, in my old age, it's impossible to argue with a single word of it.

” welcome to the thirds world — it’s us!”

The third world is exempted from pollution treaties.

Obama wants to destroy this country.

This is just fascist, banana republic BS being pulled by the Kenyan dictator. Dang, I hope I can last three more years. This Kenyan boy’s BS is really tearing me up. I’m at the point where I’d prefer Putin over this idiot.

That’s funny right there-—I have a tree farm and I’ve said for years that if these ecogeniuses figger ways to actually cut down on CO2 I will start burning tires to feed my trees. CO2 is a necessary part of the life cycle-—without enough of it everything green dies.

CO2 levels need to at least double if the flora and fauna on this planet are expected to survive. Carbon cycle, nitrogen cycle, all of our energy comes from the sun, and the plants that collect and store that energy for us need those. There's not enough free carbon in the atmosphere left to keep the cycle going. Most of it is trapped in carbonate rocks, and unavailable for photosynthesis. You could dig up all of the carbon on the planet, and burn it, and it still wouldn’t be enough. We are living in a biological desert at this time, based on geological records.

OK!! Everybody pay attention!

Lesson for today:

1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.

2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls our climates.

3. The earth is a rock.

4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.

5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.

Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?

I’m sure you understand this, but for the few that may not:

It’s all about the control!

Yes, I understand it’s all about control.

Can you think of a similar hoax of this magnitude that has been foisted on our populace?

carbon pollution is trivial compared to the Obama pollution

Obama is American enemy Number 1

Ridding the Republic of him should be priority #1

He ran on it his first term - yet here we are. Sad that we had a chance to do the unprincipled thing and “choose lesser evils” but decided to go with the Stygian blackness we now fear will be our undoing.
