Obama’s war on America Killing coal to kill U.S. electrical power

The presumption that carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants are so dangerous that we have to shut them all down to save the planet is ludicrous, says Alan Caruba. Citing CFACT advisor Bonner Cohen's data, Caruba notes that jhuman activity accounts for just 4% of worldwide atmospheric CO2, and the U.S. contribution to that total is dwarfed by emissions from new power plants in China and India. Six unions have joined with CFACT to fight these rules, which threaten 37% of the current U.S. electricity market that relies on coal.

Dirty science in EPA’s war on coal!

When it comes to science policy, the EPA has one simple rule: Don't let the truth get in the way of our political intentions. Perhaps the primary example of this hostile attitude toward the American people is the new EPA proposal to demand that coal-fired power plants reduce harmless carbon dioxide emissions by at least 50% more than is currently technically feasible (and achieving that level is not necessarily commercially feasible). Moreover, the EPA and other federal agencies are also waging war on oil and gas drilling through a variety of mostly indirect methods.

Poland saying “Nie” to Green demands

You've heard us say the UN's decision to have a climate conference in Poland was a big mistake. Poland is not only a nation highly skeptical of climate alarmism, but also one that is supportive and heavily reliant on coal and fossil fuels. Poland was probably not going to offer them the reception they were looking for. Now it appears some Greens are coming to a similar conclusion.

CFACT provides expert testimony at EPA coal hearings from coast to coast

EPA has been holding public hearings on coal energy around the country. CFACT's Duggan Flanakin, Bonner Cohen, and Paul Driessen took the microphone in Dallas, Washington, D.C., and Chicago.to ensure some hard facts make into EPA's record. CFACT Collegians brought the fight to sessions in Atlanta and Seattle. EPA's new rules which, which effectively shut down every coal-fired power plant in the country at a cost of hundreds of thousands of jobs and forcing electricity rates to skyrocket -- are a very bad investment and should be thrown down the toilet.

J’accuse! EPA’s carbon dioxide regulations would endanger public health and welfare

At an October 23 hearing in Atlanta called by EPA to solicit public comments about "reducing carbon pollution" from existing stationary power plants, Dr. James Rust of the Heartland Institute joined several CFACT Collegians in providing testimony. Dr. Rust noted that these EPA rules would be both damaging to the economy and dangerous to public health and welfare -- and are wholly unneeded.

EPA admits no benefits from new coal plant rules

The EPA recently announced its first-ever rules on the amount of carbon dioxide that can be emitted from new power plants. But while many Green spokesmen and global warming believers hailed this as a major breakthrough, the EPA itself says the proposed rule will yield no actual emissions reductions or benefits whatsoever over the next 10 years.

DOE: Fossil fuels to dominate next 30 years

President Obama recently stated “We’ve got to look at the energy sources of the future.” And while he was specifically pointing to wind and solar power, it appears he’s overlooking what his own Department of Energy recently reported will dominate the next 30 years of energy production – namely fossil fuels.
