Terry McAuliffe needs a little more time to think about the EPAís new coal regs, if you donít mind

The Obama administration moved forward with much-anticipated emissions regulations on Friday, requiring any new coal plants to cut down on their emissions levels to a degree that will necessitate expensive carbon capture and storage technology — which just so happens to be so prohibitively costly that there are no commercial coal-fired plants actually using it right now. (This round of regulations is really just the warmup act, by the way, for the regulations the Obama administration hopes to introduce next year requiring new and existing coal plants to meet their selected standards — meaning current plants will either need to aggressively retrofit their operations or call it quits.)

McAuliffe is apparently making deals with Republicans in the Tidewater area and these turncoats are supporting him. So too are some business organizations.

Talk about selling rope to your hangman!

If ever someone comes off as a snake oil salesman, it is Terry McAuliffe.

McAufull needs time to think about how to set up a corrupt shell company to make himself tens of millions of dollars on crony government contracts, again.

The piece of garbage is on record saying he does not want another coal plant to open. WAKE UP, VIRGINIA! Unless you want to end up in the poorhouse trying to pay your electric bill!

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?
