EPA held hearings today on proposed rules that would place tremendous burdens on existing power plants that would force many to shut down.
President Obama's EPA seeks to mandate a 30% reduction in U.S. CO2 emissions (over 1995 levels) by 2030.
This is radical. This is damaging. This is a mistake.
Congress considered regulating CO2 emissions through a cap and trade plan, but deliberately elected not to.
EPA, rather than faithfully administering the law, is stretching 1970's Clean Air Act far beyond the recognition of the legislators who voted on it.
We have extensive coverage on EPA overreach at CFACT.org.
CFACT senior policy analyst Bonner Cohen testified at the EPA hearing session in Washington, D.C.
Marita Noon, who in the spring completed a college speaking tour sponsored by CFACT Collegians, presented CFACT's testimony to the EPA hearing in Atlanta, Georgia (Pictured testifying right). You can read it at CFACT.org.
EPA's hearing follows close on the heels of the revelation that the average price of American electricity prices just hit an all time high of 14.3 cents per kilowatt hour.
EPA's proposed rule would push electricity rates drastically higher and take a terrible toll on jobs, manufacturing and family's cost of living.
CFACT intends to continue our efforts to educate government officials and citizens about the serious damage this and other EPA rules will do to the U.S. economy.
The facts belong on the record.
We'll make sure they are.
