The Hunger Games was not just a movie. It’s what the elite plans for the rest of us:
An Obama administration official has said that the new clean coal rules could increase electricity prices by as much as 80 percent.
As are most things that the current administration has done, the EPA mandate is blatantly illegal.
The Environmental Policy Act of 2005 prevents the EPA from using government-backed CCS projects to demonstrate that the technology is commercially proven. But the agency still went ahead with mandating CCS, citing three government-backed CCS projects as justification for their requirement.
Reality conflicts with your worldview? Just alter reality!!!
“In typical EPA fashion, they’re putting the cart before the horse to advance their environmental policy agenda,” said Louisiana Republican Sen. David Vitter. “They’re moving forward with a controversial rule to regulate carbon based on technology that isn’t commercially available. Not only is this wrongheaded, it’s beyond the scope of their legal authority.”
The likely result of this policy?
But the coal industry says that mandating CCS will simply push the coal industry out of the U.S., costing jobs and economic growth.
“By requiring CCS, EPA is placing a de facto ban on the construction of new coal-fueled power plants, handing over leadership of the development of CCS, and an estimated $1 trillion in economic benefits, to countries like China,” said Laura Sheehan, spokeswoman for the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity.
Just like they did with incandescent light bulbs and 6-gallon toilets, this mandate by FedGov will shut down coal-fired electric plants. The result will be higher prices for energy, higher unemployment, and a lowered standard of living for most of us. Of course, those in the Capitol won’t suffer the effects of the very policies then enact.
Bring on the Tributes and let the Games begin!!!
