The most anti-industry president we’ve ever seen continues his rampage against success with his inexplicable anti-scientific and draconian cuts to CO2 emissions. Why anyone liberal or otherwise doesn’t have the common sense to see the error of this policy is beyond my understanding. We are violently attacking the very thing which makes us successful — energy. The costs of these policies are so underestimated they are simply lies, the consequences will be negative to the environment and the negative consequences to industry are intended to be dramatic. From here:
By clamping down on power plant emissions, Obama is also working to increase his leverage and credibility with other nations whose commitments he’s seeking for a global climate treaty to be finalized later this year in Paris. As its contribution to that treaty, the U.S. has pledged to cut overall emissions 26 percent to 28 percent by 2025, compared to 2005.
The people who support this policy are comprised of complete idiots, power hungry politicians and anti-industry left-wing radicals who pretend to have knowledge. Some of you read here so if you support this idiocy, you can find your own grouping. Of course all of the pro-government nonsense is funded by theft of our money through unsustainably high government taxes.
The actual price is unknown until states decide how they’ll reach their targets, but the administration has projected the rule would raise electricity prices about 4.9 percent by 2020 and prompt coal-fired power plants to close.
Does 4.9% even begin to pass the smell test for costs created by stopping power generation from combustion – without the introduction of safe clean nuclear power? NO it doesn’t, for those who can’t figure it out. You need to be an idiot to believe that it might but plenty will ‘feel’ exactly that. Rocks and feelings do not make good decision engines.
I’m not alone in this, America just does not have enough thinkers anymore to see clearly and overwhelm the political nonsense.
