Posted on 07/27/2014 3:10:20 PM PDT by House Atreides
On Wednesday, before the Senate EPW Committee, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy had this priceless quote regarding the EPAs proposed carbon dioxide regulations (italics added):
And the great thing about this proposal is it really is an investment opportunity. This is not about pollution control. Its about increased efficiency at our plants
Its about investments in renewables and clean energy. Its about investments in peoples ability to lower their electricity bills by getting good, clean, efficient appliances, homes, rental units.

Well isn’t that great the government can command and control the economy so well.
The jerk progressives blow a gasket when Sandra Fluck has to pay $10 a month for her birth control as if it is some Christian banning birth control (you’ve all heard the wailing.)
BUT, The EPA forces coal out of business for “efficiency” costing thousands of dollars extra a year in higher energy cost FOR EVERYONE and it’s just fine.
Progressives are dangerous idiots.
What kind of idiot would declare the most important compound in the cycle of life to be a pollutant?
Is Gina McCarthy a lesbo? She looks like it.
Not exactly — it’s an admission that they’re all about buzzwords and have no cognitive ability at all, unless it involves getting a boot on all our necks. Thanks House Atreides.
It all about "Feelings "
It has NOTHING TO DO WITH SCIENCE !!
So IOW it’s about Social Engineering rather than the original purpose of the EPA.
Apparently the EPA has been Democrated in purpose as have so many other aspects of our gov.
Its about investments in peoples ability to lower their electricity bills by getting good, clean, efficient appliances, homes, rental units.
So it’s about redistribution, what a surprise.
Aaah collectivism at its finest. :-)
A knowledgeable FReeper provided the following link to information on how to comment to EPA on this matter.
If you live near:
you’re close to where Public Hearings will be held on the proposed rule THIS WEEK. More information on the comment process and the public hearings are at the linked site.
“about increased efficiency at our plants”
And more CO2 means “increased efficiency at our plant” life. Greater yields, faster-growing, etc., etc..
About half our government would, and did. Disgraceful, isn’t it?
What better reason than to abolish this agency?
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Am I going to get an annual $2,500 savings in my energy bills to go along with my $2,500 in Health Care savings?
My corn,soybeans and wheat are sucking up tons of CO2,and loving it.Send more.
You mean, Earth isn’t in the balance? That was just a convenient lie?
It’s not about pollution, it’s about control.
“My corn,soybeans and wheat are sucking up tons of CO2,and loving it.Send more.”
Keep talking like that and they will start taxing the receiving end of CO2 as well.
I find it hard to believe the EPA is really concerned about my electric bill.
NO MONEY for the a####les in 2015. Or we’ll find actual conservative Republicans who will turn off the money spigot in 2017.
unintended consequences of government regulations
Have you even wondered why a ac unit evaporator coil won’t last 20 years like they used to. When the gouv. required 13 seer efficiency on AC units the manufacturers had to make the copper thinner. Now they don’t last 6 years and spew thousands of tons of refrigerants to the air costing consumers thousands for a replacement that still won’t last 6 years.
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 the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
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?
“Am I going to get an annual $2,500 savings in my energy bills to go along with my $2,500 in Health Care savings?”
Making electricity even more expensive will force people to buy more energy efficient devices. It is not the governments job to force people to buy things they would not need if the government did not make prices rise artificially.
>> “ This is not about pollution control.”
A statement of deemphasis — not an admission about some concealed awareness CO2 isn’t a pollutant.
These tyrants believe their BS. Simply being conniving a-holes would be an improvement.
