Dem. lawmaker 'proud' that EPA regs have 'scrapped' three coal power plants in Nevada
Write on Nevada ^ | April 15, 2012 | Victor Joecks

In case you needed any more evidence that President Obama's "all of the above" talking point on energy policy is a joke, Nevada Assemblyman "Tick" Segerblom, D.-Clark County, just wrote an op-ed bragging about how a recent ruling from Obama's EPA will kill coal power.

Media analysts from left and right are predicting that the most recent EPA rule-making decision spells the ultimate end of Big Coal as utilities turn to cleaner, cheaper sources for energy.

In the five years since the Supreme Court made its ruling, Nevada has moved faster than many other states to accommodate a new regulatory situation. Simply put, we’ve got a lot to be proud of and our moves have helped generate thousands of jobs and contributed to a healthier environment.

Since 2007: ...

• The state has set a goal of 25 percent of electricity to be generated through renewable energy by 2025 — a goal that electric utility NV Energy executives insist is the minimum, not the ceiling, for clean energy production. ...

Plans for three coal-fired generating plants have been scrapped in our state. (Emphasis added)

So not only is Assemblyman Tick Segerblom "proud" that "plans for three coal-fired generating plants have been scrapped," this move has "helped generate thousands of jobs"!

Well, we all know how the heavily inhabited state of Nevada is covered in smog, it’s horrible, worse than North Dakota!

When do the rolling brownouts occur?

“Odungo regs have ‘scrapped’ three coal power plants in Nevada”

But Romney would do far worse than that.

Be sure to stay home so we get Obama part II.

In a dream scenario, these people would be denied the use of electricity generated by fossil fuels and only be allowed to use electricity generated by “renewable” sources.

"Odungo regs"

The key phrase in the article is "In the five years since the Supreme Court made its ruling"

That was the 9-0 ruling on New Source Review.

OTOH, the other ruling that SCOTUS made on that same day back in 2007 was the ruling when they declared CO2 to be a pollutant in a narrow 5-4 decision

He may be happy for the time being but wait until they come to get him. But from Boulder? Currently a hot bed of liberalism. Kind of like mid-continent Berkley. Once they are gone the good guys can assemble there to make the trek to get Randall in Vegas.

Why is this a surprise to anyone? Joe Biden and Obama were videotaped during the 2008 campaign promising to bankrupt the coal industry out of existence.

before he takes his Victory Lap he should wait and see what Big Coal SuperPAC’s do to Democrats in the fall.

Think “Harry and Louise open their electric bill and it has tripled”.

[In the real world, however, solar and some forms of wind power are decidedly more expensive, 21.07 to 31.18 cents-per-kilowatt hour, than coal power, 9.48 to 13.62 cents-per-kilowatt hour. . .Nevada already has the highest commercial electricity rates in the Intermountain West. . .]

FROM 4-2-12 Deseret News:

[Once the mother lode of Riverside County's solar gold rush, the stalled, 1,000-megawatt Blythe solar plant east of the Coachella Valley suffered another setback Monday as project developer Solar Trust of America filed for bankruptcy.
The Oakland-based company filed for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy — seeking to restructure its debts — in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware, listing assets of up to $10 million and debts of up to $100 million.]
