EPA planning major (post-election) anti-coal regulation

04 Nov

President Kenya’s Environmental Protection Agency has devoted an unprecedented number of bureaucrats to finalizing new anti-coal regulations that are set to be released at the end of November, according to a source inside the EPA.

More than 50 EPA staff are now crashing to finish greenhouse gas emission standards that would essentially ban all construction of new coal-fired power plants. Never before have so many EPA resources been devoted to a single regulation. The independent and non-partisan Manhattan Institute estimates that the EPA’s greenhouse gas coal regulation will cost the U.S. economy $700 billion.

We have coal burning plants in Texas and these tyrants have already tried to shut them down.  The Kenyan terrorist would ruin this country if given another four years.  Hell!  The balance of his term might be long enough.  Somebody needs to disband the EPA, by whatever means necessary.  They won’t just go away on their own.

    In my home state, Arkansas, natural gas is big industry due to the Fayetteville Shale Play. This has brought tens of thousands of jobs to locals across the northern half of the state, myself included. I work with people living in north Arkansas that are driving 50-70 miles one way each day to work here because there are no jobs in their area. It has brought a certain level of prosperity to otherwise devastated local economies. Those of us working in the industry are making well over twice the minimum wage, an unprecedented salary in these rural areas.

    According to the Arkansas Electric Cooperatives Inc., at the present time a little over 50% of our electricity generating plants are fired by natural gas, a majority of the balance are fired by coal with a couple of nuclear plants thrown in the mix. The coal fired plants in Arkansas have long ago complied with the tyrannical EPA regulations mandating clean air standards, by the way, substantially driving up the cost of electricity. Oops!

    If those remaining coal fired plants are required (and they will be if the game doesn’t change tomorrow) to switch over to natural gas it will be VERY costly to these Co-ops in Arkansas and of course that is passed on to the consumers. We are talking about MAJOR changes, not little modifications, that will assist Comrade Kenyan in his goal to destroy the economy across the state and country. I’ve not seen figures projecting the cost to consumers…I shudder to think what it might be…probably double?! Possibly more!

    We have discussed this before in another thread but I’ll say it again, these shit-slick snakes in the EPA should be imprisoned for life and the organization disbanded immediately. Their goal is the destruction of our way of life by making the operating cost of business’ prohibitive. This is illegal from the standpoint that their actions are subversive and in direct conflict with the U.S. Constitution.

      For the “Natural” state (ROF!), whose largest industry has to do with steel bars, it’s amazing that so many of the locals would even consider the Kenyan traitor. You are suppose to be opening a new coal burner (I have been invited to that). The Democrats would have every American bare-footed and dirt poor. That is not a joke. They really will. They are voting for revenge. Against who? Themselves! Really smart people…

        I’m assuming you may be talking about the Flint Creek plant at Gentry Arkansas? They are working on retrofitting it with some new equipment to make it more “pollution” free plus at the present time the plant is burning low sulfur coal from Wyoming. EPA of course wants it shut down. It’s one of those test bed things and the Sierra Club of Arkansas and the EPA is watching it closely. They’re like shit-eating vultures…just waiting for some excuse to close it down. It seems there may be a battle over this, some Arkansas politicians have expressed an interest in keeping it running. (Probably because they have some investments in it!)

        But the so-called dangers according to the Arkansas Chapter of the Sierra Club is deaths, cancer, two headed toads, purple armadillos, lesbian hens and a list of other bad effects of the coal dust spewing forth into the atmosphere like Hells Fire itself. They are so full of shit, no one is raising hell about the additives put in the food supply and the people that die or are affected in some adverse manner from medications that the FDA approves!

        “Opiate pain relievers such as Oxycontin accounted for 73 percent of prescription-related deaths. Additionally, in 2009 there were 1.2 million emergency-room visits related to prescription-drug overdose, compared to 1 million related to illegal drugs such as heroin and cocaine.”

        The government (if I may call it that) doesn’t have to take away our rights and guns to control us, hell they’re killing us with their regulation of food and drugs! I feel like this is a much more serious problem than coal fired plants.

    Oh…by the way….”Those of us working in the industry are making well over twice the minimum wage, an unprecedented salary in these rural areas”.

      Yep. Is there really anyone alive who can recite what each three lettered agency acronym stands for?

    I doubt many federal employees could do that, at least not without an HGA… Handbook of Government Acronyms!

    I can imagine an agency whose sole purpose is the creation of acronyms for government use. Staffed by hundreds of people that begin each morning ingesting massive doses of amphetamines and ecstasy.

    Come to think of it…this may be what people in the WH are doing, it makes them feel good about screwing us all day!

      Damn! I hadn’t thought of that Danny. You’ve got to be right. You’re definitely onto something here. Good thing for them that several states are voting to legalize drugs tomorrow. Ain’t Amerika great?

          Excellent! Keep me posted. I’ll be watching but they won’t give us much on Ark. SIL is going back to Ft. Smith this week after the election. I need to get up there. You might see a new ad up in Atkins before too long. 🙂

    A lot of organizations, including the Governor, have come out against it. Of course including the Chiefs of Police, all the Sheriffs etc, it looks like it’s going to be dropped like a dead skunk.
    I haven’t been through Atkins in several weeks, work has slowed down going out west but I always keep an eye out for your ads there. I believe the last one I saw was the Pilot ad.
