EPA to Strike Again (!!!)

If you think that the MACT rules are serious problems--and they are--you might want to take a few calm-pills.

...EPA has sent its proposed regulation establishing greenhouse gas (GHG) New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for new and modified power plants to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review.
The stringency of the regulation is unknown to outsiders at this time. Environmental lobbyists hope EPA will set the bar so high that only natural gas power plants, or coal-fired plants equipped with carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology, can comply. Industry representatives want EPA to propose separate standards for coal- and gas-fired electric generating units reflecting the different carbon intensities of coal and natural gas. quoting Greenwire

Since there are no CCS systems in place without massive Gummint funding, that will be a problem.

Can Obama blow off the coal-producing States and still win?  He doesn't have to worry about ND, SD, NE, and TX--which he will blow off with the Keystone/XL game.  He wouldn't have them anyway.

But West Virginia, VA., PA, OH.?
