Joe Biden’s “No Coal Plants Here in America” Proclamation Now Getting Wings
How many remember this video from 2008?
The RNC does, and they’ve got a great video out showing Biden’s “evolution” on coal.
But while Biden plays games with special interest groups, his desired agenda is actually getting wings.
The Environmental Protection Agency held 12 hours of stacked hearings in Washington, D.C. and Chicago on Thursday in favor of a regulation that analysts have concluded would kill the building of new conventional coal plants in the U.S.
Among the participants scheduled to testify in consecutive five minute blocks throughout the day were multiple representatives from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and environmental activists from the Sierra Club, the Environmental Defense Fund, the Natural Resources Defense Council and Greenpeace.
The proposed rule, reported by The Washington Post in March, limits the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by power plants to no more than 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per megawatt hour. While the EPA is keeping public comments on the regulation open until June 25, the dice have already been cast by the Obama administration against conventional coal plants, fulfilling a January 2008 campaign promise by the president.
“The average U.S. natural gas plant, which emits 800 to 850 pounds of CO2 per megawatt hour, meets that standard; coal plants emit an average of 1,768 pounds of carbon dioxide per megawatt hour,” the Post reported.
In other words, the EPA is about to set forth radical regulations that will destroy coal energy by making it impossible for coal plants to operate.
Remind me again… why should we not believe Obama and Biden when they tell us what they will do? They’re doing it right before our eyes.
