It is hard for me to quantify the gratitude I have for Craign Rucker and the work of CFACT.
EPA’s proposed regulations on new power plants will make it nearly impossible to construct a new coal plant in the United States.
If promulgated, these regulations will raise the price of electricity and potentially cause brownouts, while having no meaningful impact on world temperatures.
At the same time the U.S. is strangling electricity from coal, China, India and even Germany are increasing their coal use. To truly understand the futility of these destructive regulations, consider this: China added the equivalent of all U.S. coal plants in just five years, 2005-2009. From 2010-2013 it added half that much again.
How’s that for a carbon offset?
CFACT senior policy analyst Bonner Cohen presented testimony today at an EPA hearing on its proposed new power plant regulations in Washington, D.C. You can read his full testimony at CFACT.org.
The Obama administration’s war on coal is a disaster in the making for the U.S. economy.
People need to learn the straight facts. CFACT is on the job.
For nature and people too,
