If the White House and the EPA is permitted to implement the MATS regulation the economy will dramatically decline. Life in America will resemble that of third world nations. It is entirely based on lies

No? How about Tea Party candidates?
Obama Promises Skyrocketing Energy Costs (31 second video with skyrocket quote)
Obama is an enemy of the people.
What really matters to elitists is the DIFFERENCE between their lifestyle and that of the “commoner”.
Once an elitist reaches a certain level of wealth and/or power, gaining more wealth and power is a matter of diminishing returns.
At that point, the easier way to achieve more DIFFERENCE in lifestyles is to destroy the lifestyle of the commoner.
Transforming America into a Third world nation has been the Globalists' goal for the past thirty plus years. Unfortunately, they've done a pretty good job so far.
If dear leader is doing anything remotely good for America, I’m Hitler’s illegitimate child.
Short answer: Shut down the EPA. It has been a political activist branch of the liberals ever since it was created, holding on to its fiefdom regardless of which political party is nominally in charge of the governance of that territory once known as “the United States of America”.
Operating largely outside the overview of Congress, and with close connivance of non-government entities, EPA is out of control and does not answer to the citizenry, much like Health and Human services, and the Internal Revenue Service, all of which are instruments of the police power of the nation-state.
The “North American Reich”, or maybe the “North American Caliphate”, is the apparent successor state to the former “United States of America”. And I am not yet ready to accept that.
This is one of the very few things Obama said he would do and is actually doing.
When running for election Obama said he would Kill the coal industry, shut down coal fired electric power generation and raise the cost of electricity to the consumer.
But people in the coal states still voted for him.
And millions upon millions who will be hit with much higher elecricity costs voted for him.
The idiot in the White House has a lot of company out in his 57 states.
And he supported (at our expense) several failed high tech companies that were supposed to build solar systems.
Our immune system e.g. congress has been completely compromised.
They are as guilty as the bam, perhaps more so.
The EPAs current regulations have resulted in the shut down over more than 150 coal-fired plants over the course of Obamas first term and his second represents a threat to everyone living in America. We are living through one of the harshest winters in recent years and the 17-year-old cooling cycle which the entire Earth is experiencing promises to last decades.
Commenting on the proposed carbon pollution standards for new power plants, Bonner R.Cohen, PhD, a CFACT Senior Policy Analyst laid out the reasons why MATS has no basis whatever in science.
Any regulation seeking to limit the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the Earths atmosphere deliberately and deceptively ignores facts that anyone can understand. Bonner spelled out the basic scientific facts, but it is essential to keep in mind that CO2 is essential to all life on Earth, providing the food that all vegetation depends.
Current concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere are 400 parts per million (ppm). Human activities in all their forms account for 4% of that total.
It’s the next obvious target after healthcare.
Bailout here, bailout there. No problem.
That was pretty much it. None of the Congress critters seemed to think that might be a problem.
Lotta idiots there too. I have posted this on other threads, but I listen to WV public radio where they harp endlessly against coal. It was interesting during the chemical spill (MCHM) and all the hoopla after someone shot a hole in the bottom of the tank and the coal-industry-related chemical went into the stream and drinking water supply for 300k people. Because the chemical has a strong odor people were able to smell it diluted or imagine they smelled it. There was widespread panic and people going to the hospital.
But in actual fact the chemical injured nobody. It is classified 2 out of 4 like the 3% hydrogen peroxide you buy at the store. If ingested in undiluted quantities it causes temporary harm like "stumbling" and "weight gain" in rats, but no other ill effects. Obviously nearly any straight dose chemical would do that. In diluted quantities it does absolutely nothing except exhibit a slight odor much like hydrogen sulfide which is detectable in quantities far less than hardmful quantities.
The bottom line is the dolts in WV including all of the politicians fed the public a line of BS that is designed to further sour them on coal. Not once in all the coverage did they mention that the chemical is essentially harmless in the quantities that entered the water supply.
The pre-industrial concentration was 280, the rise to 400 is due to human activities. That is shown by the ocean now absorbing the gas that it used to release.
Obama and company do not want to destroy America. They want to maim it, permanently handicap it, take it down a few notches, humiliate it.
And all the previous rises and falls were also due to human activity, going back millions of years? Or just this one?
Burning fossil fuel to release carbon means that carbon was previously in the atmosphere before the ancient plants, algae, etc captured it.
Ironic that the EPA is shutting down coal fired generating plants in part because of concerns about mercury emissions, yet Congress has declared we must fill our homes with mercury hazard CFL light bulbs. How much mercury will be added to the environment by the breaking of millions of these bulbs and improperly disposing them into landfills?
“Shut down the EPA. It has been a political activist branch of the liberals ever since it was created, “
Have you ever dealt with the EPA? I have, since it’s inception. You think they’re ALL tree-hugging lefties?
You are exactly right in your assessment!
CO2 records go back far farther than just the ice core samples. Amber and the like show far greater CO2 concentrations from far longer ago.
Throughout the Phanerozoic (the last 570 million years), atmospheric CO2 varied within wide range depending mainly on volcanic activity. During individual periods, atmospheric CO2 was 10 to 15 times above the value that was typical for the pre-industrial epoch (approximately before 1850). At the present time, due to the burning of fossil fuel (gas, oil, coal, and other kinds of carbon fuel) a part of carbon dioxide, methane and other gases buried in the Earths crust in the course of geological history are returned back into the atmosphere.

The living nature effects of carbon dioxide concentration variations occurred along with the influence of oxygen. Variations in CO2 content in the Phanerozoic primarily changed photosynthetic productivity. In the history of Phanerozoic atmosphere, an event of great importance was the movement of life (as land vegetation) to land in the Devonian time.
This event led to an 800-fold increase in the Earths biomass. This change had to exert a pronounced effect on the course of geochemical processes in the Earths biosphere and cause certain modifications in atmosphere composition. With an average CO2 concentration for the entire Phanerozoic of 0.10 to 0.15%, there are at least six maxima in CO2 concentration exceeding this average value. In this case, during the Phanerozoic an average CO2 concentration turned out to be very close to its optimum to start photosynthesis.
Carbon dioxide maxima are recorded in the Early Ordovician, and in the Devonian and Early Carboniferous. In the Carboniferous, atmospheric CO2 concentration reached its maximum for the entire Phanerozoic. The third maximum occurred in the Early Permian, the fourth in the Middle Triassic, the fifth in the Late Jurassic, and the sixth in the Late Cretaceous. The fifth and sixth maxima represent a portion of a prolonged period with high CO2 concentration embracing the greater part of the Jurassic and almost the entire Cretaceous.
That is all good stuff and there is general agreement that CO2 values in the 200’s or less represents CO2-starvation with loss of plants that require higher concentrations to withstand other stresses (e.g. drought) and the rise of more efficient grasses which can dominate in CO2-starved environments. I don’t have any doubt that more CO2 in the atmosphere is a net benefit to both man and nature. I do take issue with the implication that sudden mysterious volcanic activity bounced the atmosphere to 400, a value not seen in millions of years. That is contrary to all the scientific evidence.
Whenever I get into an argument with loons who think CFLs are cool, I point them to the EPA website. Shuts them up.
This green agenda BS being pushed by Bam and the progs will have you in the dark at least part of the time. Those smart meters are for a reason. My guess is eventually you will be allotted so many KWs per month. When they are used up your power is turned off til the first of the month rolls around.
Be thinking about an alternative energy system.
And a friend of GE who wants more nuclear power plants.
Anyone else notice that the price of gas is up 10 cents over the last week?
Obamas War on America: Killing Coal to Kill U.S. Electrical Power .
(The ClowardPiven strategy involves draining and overloading the system, in order to get the political change they want.)
Why doesn’t the GOP capitalize on this and turn “coal country” into votes?
Before Obama it half the price the fool is dangerous.
That would mean they might actually win.
That would mean they might actually have to lead.
That would mean they would have to get thier faces out of the pig troughs and stop stuffing their own pockets.
If they won’t why not you and me?
You have been identified and counted.
You are Thought Criminal #185-90-407
Write down your number and report to the local FEMA Navigator at the nearest railroad station.
You are instructed to bring warm clothes and a shovel.
I’ll go, but why do I need a shovel?
