Why not a special-ed class or a child’s funeral?
EPA administrator Lisa Jackson will unveil the agency’s new utility MACT rule at the National Children’s Hospital in Washington, DC today at 2pm. The rule will reduce mercury and other emissions from coal-fired power plants.
Jackson will supposedly be flanked by physicians when she makes the announcement.
Despite the maudlin setting, however, there still is not a shred of tangible or scientific evidence that mercury emissions from power plants have ever harmed anyone.
The link between mercury emissions and children’s health is an utter fabrication.
In contrast, the rule will kill many jobs, many of which support children — and therein lies the actual child impacts of the rule.
