CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen makes a strong case for reining in the Environmental Protection Agency to protect the future of American prosperity. For example, the EPA's new Clean Power Plan may triple or even quadruple electricity rates in states now heavily dependent on coal for electricity generation. Sue and settle, junk science, and even deceptive or fraudulent practices by EPA employees must be curtailed.
Coal state Democrats are in open rebellion with their party over energy. Watch one candidate turn off Obama's lights in this shocking ad.
If its Clean Power Plan rule is allowed to go into effect, EPA will subject the country to a wrenching transformation of its energy sector that cannot be justified by the available scientific evidence or the damage it will inflict on ordinary citizens and the environment.
Electricity for Africa may become a reality, unless global warming campaigners get their way.
CFACT testified today at EPA's hearing on proposed emissions regulations for new power plants. These regulations will make it nearly impossible to create a new coal-fired electricity plant in the United States at a time when China, India and even Germany are expanding their use of coal.
President Obama pledged that under his administration electricity prices would necessarily skyrocket -- presumably so that wind and solar could become more acceptable financially as alternatives. The problem, notes Professor Larry Bell, is that renewable energy does not work that well with the existing power grid system in the U.S. To accommodate increasing wind and solar, Germany will have to spend up to $96 billion in transmission and distribution system upgrades in the next decade. Imagine what the cost would be for the U.S., with is massively larger population and acreage.
