ALL THAT REMAINS OF THE LEFT....:
It's Hard to Argue with the EPA (Max Ehrenfreund, 9/21/13, Washington Monthly)
The Environmental Protection Agency proposed revised rules yesterday for new power plants, setting limits on the amount of carbon dioxide new facilities fired by coal and natural gas can legally emit. The rules will not be final until a year from now, at which point they will likely be challenged in court. And natural gas plants already produce less than the proposed limit, and the industry was not going to build any new coal-fired plants anyway, because natural gas is more economical. So the new rules essentially have no practical consequences.Still, they're important...
...is the faith that acts without consequences are important.Posted by Orrin Judd at September 22, 2013 8:40 AM
