Barry Adding $1T In Regulations On Coal

Fearing Romney victory, EPA plans post election anti-coal regulation…

President Obama’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.

The rush is a major sign of panic by environmentalists inside the Obama administration. If Obama wins, the EPA would have another four full years to implement their anti-fossil fuel agenda. But if Romney wins, regulators will have a very narrow window to enact a select few costly regulations that would then be very hard for a President Romney to undo.

Today is our last chance to save the republic.

    I’m not sure if RD got into this the other day but I know I missed a chance to point this out..

    These plans have been in the works for at least a year, timed to come out only after Jan 1.

    Mark Levin has been at war with the EPA for decades now and was all over it. In fact, they filed suit to get the details when their expedited FOIA was summarily rejected by EPA.

    These new regs will shut down another 40% of the coal fired plants that haven’t been silenced yet. The bidding on future year energy has been skyrocketing in the last 4 months meaning the EPA plans were a VERY badly kept secret.

    If this shit isn’t aborted it will cripple the east coast, no question about it. How in the hell are families supposed to absorb 400% electricity bill increases without going broke??

    My bill averages 250-ish. Jack that to 1,000/mo and I’m running my generator for water and lights only, a couple hours a night.

    this makes my brain hurt. A lot of people here HEAT with coal in addition to our energy being produced by it. I’m sure a lot of WVA does also. Coal crackers are feeling the hurt of this already ~ and even more ominous is barry’s “oversight” of the natural gas industry. I’m sure that is going to be crippled too…
