EPA and Radical Environmentalist Groups Collude in “Clean Power” rules
An August Senate Environment and Public Works Oversight Report exposes dirty little secrets leading up to the Obama administration’s latest massive EPA power play.
Titled “Obama’s Carbon Mandate: An Account of Collusion, Cutting Corners, and Costing Americans Billions” it chronicles collaborative sue-and-settle tactics between EPA and environmental activist groups ( the Natural Resources Defense Council in particular) which have cornered out public awareness and input in the rule making process. (See my Dec. 16, 2014 Newsmax article “Special Interests Influence Costly EPA Regs.”)
As reported, “EPA initially agreed to finalize rules for new, modified, and existing sources by May 2012, less than a year and a half after the settlement was reached and well within President Obama’s first and potentially only term.” The supposedly non-partisan agency held back from releasing their plans which they recognized could cause a political “train wreck” of public backlash for Obama’s reelection bid along with disastrous Democrat midterm election impacts.
Now, just in time to provide a nakedly sensational burlesque feature at December climate conference talks in Paris, the finally outed version of the Clean Power Plan mandates that states cut carbon emissions by 32 percent (from 2005 levels) by 2030, up from the 30 percent reduction proposed in EPA’s earlier June 2014 plan. Renewables will then make up 28 percent of U.S. electrical capacity, about 6 times more than the less than 5 percent today.
Incidentally, 2030 is also a timeline when many scientists project that Earth will enter a new “little ice age” caused by observed periodic changes in the Sun’s magnetic cycles. If they are correct, reliance upon breezy and cloudy intermittent energy “alternatives” won’t likely warm the hearts, souls and frigid homes of northern latitude residents.
They will only endanger electrical reliability, strain grids and potentially lead to power brownouts. (Think Europe, for example.)
And by the way, satellite records indicate that the allegedly terrifying global warming which all of this CO2 regulation is supposed to cap seems to have stopped without any EPA help nearly two decades ago. Not that this really matters, of course, when a top priority presidential planet-saving legacy is at stake.
Besides, none of this actually had much of anything to do with CO2 climate “pollution” anyway. Explaining the real purpose of the upcoming Paris talks, U.N. official Christiana Figures enthusiastically proclaimed:
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the [capitalist free market] economic development model that has been reigning for the, at least, 150 years since the Industrial Revolution.”
