Arrogance: EPA says new coal plant rules have no costs — tell that to the reeling coal industry and consumers

Accordingly, the EPA also does not anticipate this rule will have any impacts on the price of electricity, employment or labor markets, or the US economy. Nonetheless, this rule may have several important beneficial effects described below.
