It is clear that the EPA is full of zealots who are waging Green Jihad against flyover country.
...A report published by the Institute for 21st
Century Energy at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce outlines the stark
economic impacts of the proposed Clean Power Plan. Between 2014 and
2030, the U.S. GDP will see an average annual economic loss of $51
billion, an average decline of 224,000 job losses per year, and an
average annual loss of real disposable income topping $200. It is also
likely that those families with low and fixed incomes with bear the
greatest financial burdens associated with these proposed regulations.
Further, EPA Jihadists, like their (current) President and Attorney General, are at war with the 9th Amendment to the Constitution:
...The proposed Clean Power Plan also represents a significant change in
the relationship between the EPA and the states in the environmental
regulatory making process. ...Since the time of the New Deal, the regulation of retail electricity
sales and local distribution has been a sovereign state function and the
1935 Federal Power Act limits the authority of federal regulators to
“only those matters which are not subject to the regulation by the
States.” The proposed Clean Power Plan radically alters this
And their swarms of regulators will make our quarters virtually uninhabitable:
...The EPA itself concedes that 50 gigawatts
of installed baseload capacity will be forced into retirement by 2020
due directly to the proposed Plan. This would come in addition to the 70
gigawatts of installed capacity that have already been retired or will
retire in compliance with other EPA regulations. This 120 gigawatts of
installed capacity is no small number – it is roughly equivalent to the
amount of generation needed to power 60 million homes....
As destructive as that plan is, it is only one of the battles that EPA is conducting against the US citizenry. Other jihads are running against the automobile, factories, wood-burning stoves, and anyone living near a ditch which might carry water.
It's long past time for someone--ANYone--to begin a counter-offensive against EPA.
Maybe RoJo will take it up, if McConnell lets him.
