N. Dak Congressman rips Obama climate plan

The Minot Daily News reports:

The harshest language against the president’s plan, announced Tuesday, came from Congressman Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.

“President Obama is making good on his 2008 promise to bankrupt anyone who wants to build a new coal plant, but now he wants to bankrupt everyone who ever built one. This announcement compounds the vast regulatory nightmare already confronting domestic energy development and removes any doubt the president is determined to dismantle an industry providing jobs and energy for our nation,” Cramer said in a prepared statement.

“All seven power plants generating electricity from coal in North Dakota are in peril under this measure,” he added. “I will not stand by while President Obama further destroys the American economy to appease his Hollywood environmentalist supporters, and will use every avenue available in Congress to stop these disastrous regulations from being implemented.”

    Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., said in a prepared statement that she supports the president’s efforts to mitigate long-term impacts of climate change. However, she added, several of the initiatives amplify the administration’s continuing war on coal and coal-fired power.
    “While the president claims to believe in an all-of-the-above energy policy, he consistently fails to step forward and truly commit to such a policy. Instead the administration continues developing regulations that do nothing more than choke off good-paying American jobs and threaten millions of Americans with the loss of a reliable and affordable energy source,” she said.
    She encouraged continued investments in technologies to further reduce emissions through clean coal technology projects, including commercial-scale carbon capture and sequestration.
