The Democrat-tilted EPA is a gangster enterprise — knowingly violating the law in order to scare utilities and other investors away from the GOP-leaning coal industry in hopes of destroying it.
The WaPo reports:
The Environmental Protection Agency will move Friday to strictly limit the amount of carbon that future coal- and gas-fired power plants can pour into the atmosphere, the first such restrictions on greenhouse gases imposed by the agency.
The limits in the proposed rule will be difficult for any new coal plant to meet without incurring the substantial costs of additional technology to limit carbon dioxide output or developing new methods of cleansing emissions. The industry almost certainly will challenge it in court…
Joseph Stanko, head of government relations for the law firm Hunton & Williams, said the EPA’s reliance on “federally-funded demonstration projects” as the base for its new standard “is illegal, it doesn’t ‘adequately demonstrate’ technology for normal use.”
