Sign the petition: Demand affordable energy for America!

President Obama’s EPA has made history by bypassing Congress and proposing the first-ever carbon restriction on coal-fired power plants.

This new environmental regulation would truly be a game changer.

It would effectively prohibit construction of new coal power plants, drastically increase energy prices for all Americans, and – worst of all – is based entirely on over-hyped global warming “junk science.” We can’t let it stand!

Please click here right away and sign CFACT’s National Petition for Affordable Energy, and help us fight back against the EPA’s dangerous and unaffordable global warming agenda!

Back in 2008 during his first presidential campaign, candidate Obama threatened to “bankrupt” anyone who tries to build a coal power plant in the United States.

And now, five years later, he is making good on that promise.

America has an abundant supply of coal, yet President Obama would prevent us from benefiting from one of our most precious resources while China, India, and other nations are increasing their use of coal every day.

Coal-firNew York City Lightsed power plants currently provide about 40 percent of America’s electricity, but with one sweeping set of bureaucratic regulations, the President and his bureaucratic allies are trying to single-handedly bring America’s energy production to a screeching halt.

The EPA wants you to believe that by cutting off coal-powered electricity, it can stop “man-made global warming.”

Never mind the fact that, even according to the UN’s own Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, there has been NO global warming whatsoever for the past 17 years!

We can’t let these ideologically charged, scientifically bogus, and unaffordable regulations go through.

We must take a stand against them right now!

Please help us do that by signing CFACT’s National Petition for Affordable Energy right away.

This has to be where we make our stand, my friend. We MUST not let the United States become the next coal-restricted country.

In Germany, Spain, and Britain, for example, draconian environmental restrictions have made “energy poverty” an everyday reality for millions of people.

Some working-class Germans can only afford to use 5-watt light bulbs in their kitchens and can barely heat their homes in the winter. Some have become so desperate they’ve gone back to cutting down forests for firewood, all because their own government has intentionally made electricity too expensive!

And in Britain, electricity prices have shot up more than 50% since 2005!

Once energy becomes unaffordable, the prices of food, manufacturing, and transportation follow suit.

Did you know Spain’s unemployment rate has now reached a staggering 26%?! Experts credit much of this disastrous condition to the country’s failed Green energy policies.

If we don’t stop the EPA’s new restrictions on coal, Germany’s, Britain’s, and Spain’s present will become our future. Barack Obama and the EPA are determined to follow in Europe’s footsteps in the name of stopping “man-made global warming.”

And we have to stop them. Please, stand with us today.

Right now, the Environmental Protection Agency is allowing a “public comment period” on its proposed coal regulations.

It’s the perfect opportunity to flood them with petitions demanding that they keep American energy affordable and refuse to give into the “junk science” of the radical global warming lobby!

A strong show of support might also embolden some on Capitol Hill to reign in the out-of-control EPA.

But our strength lies in numbers, which is why CFACT has set an ambitious but attainable initial goal of 50,000 petition signatures in the next 30 days.

We urgently need your help to meet that goal.

It’s the only way to make our voices heard by the bureaucrats in the EPA, the media, and other policymakers in Washington.

So please, my friend, don’t wait another minute. Help us stand up for sound science. Help us protect American energy and the American economy.

Please sign CFACT’s National Petition for Affordable Energy right away.

    Below Is a Snapshot of the U.S. Economy Under President Obama, As of September 2012

    • 23,136,000 Americans are unemployed, underemployed, or have stopped looking for work.

    • 12,544,000 Americans are unemployed.

    • 8,031,000 Americans are underemployed, working part-time but seeking full-time work.

    • 5,033,000 workers have been unemployed for 27 weeks or longer.

    • 1,043,000 construction jobs have been lost since President Obama took office.

    • 582,000 manufacturing jobs have been lost since President Obama took office.

    • The unemployment rate when President Obama took office was7.8%. Under Obama, the country experienced 43 consecutive months of unemployment above 8% (though the administration predicted that the January 2009 passage of the stimulus bill would keep unemployment from ever reaching 8%, and would reduce it to 5.4% by 2012).

    • The nation’s labor-force participation rate is 63.5%, the lowest level since 1981.

    • Had the labor-force participation rate remained steady since President Obama took office, the official unemployment rate would now be 11.2%.

    • The government’s official unemployment rate does not include those unemployed individuals who have entirely given up looking for work (and thus have dropped out of the job market); nor does it include the underemployed—i.e., those with part-time jobs who rare seeking full-time employment. The most significant unemployment-related statistic, known as the U-6 figure, does factor these two important categories of individuals into the equation. When these workers are included, the U-6 un/underemployment rate stood at 14.7% as of September 2012.

    • Between January 2009 and September 2012, median gasoline pricesnationwide more than doubled, from $1.84 per gallon to $3.85 per gallon. (Note: In 2008, Obama’s energy secretary, Steven Chu, advocated steep rises in gasoline prices as a means of coaxing Americans into being more fuel-efficient and purchasing green energy cars: “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe”—i.e., approximately $10 per gallon. In March 2011, Chu reiterated his support for high gasoline prices.)

    • Throughout the 2012 presidential campaign, President Obama hasclaimed credit for “creating 4.5 million new jobs.” But “jobs created” is only half of the equation; the other half is “jobs lost.” When both figures are considered, the Obama presidency has overseen a net jobs gain of just 325,000. As Washington Post Fact Checker Glenn Kesslerputs it, “Obama is on track to have the worst jobs record of any president since World War II.”

    The situation is worse than what is written by this request to sign the petition. A rule put out by EPA in September prohibits construction of new coal-fired power plants. This petition is protesting that ruling. The EPA is having hearings across the country at 11 locations for rules applied to existing power plants. A hearing was in Atlanta, GA at 2 p.m. October 23. I testified EPA is killing the country with its bogus rules.

    I think rules EPA will put out for existing power plants will be the same as for new power plants; only give utilities maybe six years to comply. Rules on new power plants, or required modifications for existing power plants, require carbon capture and storage for coal-fired power plants. This is storage of all carbon dioxide that comes out of smoke stacks at power plants. The result is storing huge quantities of carbon dioxide underground at high pressure. Carbon dioxide is denser than air and if carbon dioxide leaks from storage, a huge plume of carbon dioxide gas will creep along the ground and suffocate people. This event happened at Lake Nyos in the Cameroon in 1986 which killed 1700 and thousands of head of cattle by suffocation. Thus EPA is taking a non-problem and creating a solution that could kill thousands. Don’t you like friends like that!

    Good luck,

    How do you imagine that those two: Barry Hussein Obama and EPA’s Administrator Gina McCarthy with their minions are going to change their inbred stupid/idiotic attitude?
