Two state utilities said this week new federal pollution rules will lead to higher electricity costs come January.
Those utilities would be WPL (Madison HQ) and WPS (Green Bay HQ).
WEenergies customers are already paying the price. The new Oak Creek burners are compliant for at least the next few months. EPA will find some way to screw that up, too.
And here's the line of BS from EPA:
...the EPA estimates the nation will see $120 billion to $280 billion in annual health and welfare benefits beginning in 2014.
EPA tends to make up numbers, folks. They are generally "un-falsifiable", and they are designed to be scary. It's the same-old/same-old: grannies will die sooner. So will you, and so will your children.
There are a couple of solutions which come to mind here.
1) Cease all industrial production in the US, including the production of energy and food. That ends those sources of plague, disfigurement, debilitation, and death!!
2) Shut down the EPA.
This shouldn't be a difficult choice for normal people.
