Imagine! If one little regulatory disagreement with the EPA has led to a years-long effort to salvage maybe half of the electric power being generated at the San Juan Generating Station in Farmington, New Mexico, what will be the full impact of the EPA’s much hated Clean Power Plan? The answer — total chaos, a massive loss of generating power, and economic ruin for millions of Americans.
CFACT Advisor Marita Noon points to a primary election in New Mexico as the impetus for Colorado Democrats to back away from legislation to curtail hydraulic fracturing (fracking), a measure that would hurt Colorado’s economy and quite likely the chances for Democrats there to win elections this fall. Cynical? You betcha! If they should win in November, will these measures be back on the table?
