Let me get this straight. If a group now wants to build a new power plant to
support a growing urban area, the President's EPA standard or proposal
would make it impossible (illegal) to build since the technology does not yet
exist to meet the requirements set forth by the EPA. In other words, all future
power plant plans have to be put on hold until and if at some future time such
technology becomes feasibly available. I'm sorry, Mr.
President, but that's just plain ridiculous. How is the country supposed to
meet the growing demands for more energy if technology is requited that
doesn't yet exist? This new bill to that requires newer technology levels
of within the latest year is much more realistic and will keep improving and
moving forward as technology does. Sadly, most of our pollution
reductions are offset by the uncontrolled pollution coming from China, India and
other less developed countries who are bound by almost no restrictions. To make
a significant difference, all large pollution countries have to agree to the
same or similar restrictions. That's not even close to happening yet.
Tators : I believe that your assumption about these regulations are correct. I
just hope when the blackouts began that those in the EPA and others who have a
war on coal get their power cut off first
The federal government's energy policy: Fewer jobs, more food stamps, more
unemployment checks and more healthcare subsidies, right Mr. President?
