Obama Takes on Coal With
First-Ever Carbon Limits

Associated Press, by Dina Cappielo

Original Article

Posted By:MDMuskrat, 9/20/2013 8:44:43 AM

The Obama administration is pressing ahead with tough requirements for new coal-fired power plants, moving to impose for the first time strict limits on the pollution blamed for global warming. The proposal would help reshape where Americans get electricity, away from a coal-dependent past into a future fired by cleaner sources of energy. It´s also a key step in President Barack Obama´s global warming plans, because it would help end what he called "the limitless dumping of carbon pollution" from power plants.

Comments:
Energy may be the most divisive issue in the world today. Forget politics, religion, economics, race, and all of the other subjects that set us at each other’s throats. Energy is more polarizing than all of these because it has all of these elements in it – and more. Energy = Power.

About 99.99% of carbon dioxide is produced in DC. If the politicians would just shut up global warming would be stopped in its tracks. (I originally wrote carbon monoxide instead of dioxide, but DC is pretty good about emitting that also. Just think of how much their regulations smother.)

This is why they have to keep pretending "global warming" is real: they want to punish people.

Our electricity charges just went up again. This time, 3%. I´m sure it has nothing to do with six SC coal-fired plants being shut down in the last year or so. /s

Regulations for existing plants involve too much expense to bring those plants up to the new standards; regulations for new plants make them too expensive to build.

This war against traditional sources of generating energy is tearing the world apart.

An article posted here yesterday (http://www.lucianne.com/thread/?artnum=752874) enumerated almost all of the reasons why it is a grave social and economic mistake to flee traditional sources of energy (nuclear, hydrocarbon) before "pie-in-the-sky" sources (wind, solar) are ready technologically. In fact, one section of that article defines why these sources may never be ready to carry the load:
"One of the first obstacles encountered involves the vagaries of electrical power generation that is dependent on sources as inconsistent and unpredictable as the wind and the sun."

This Obama/EPA rush to combat carbon and fight ´Global Warming´ may be because they are in a panic about the 23 September release of the UN´s IPCC report which (if honest...which it won´t be) will admit that GW, especially that caused by human activity (AGW) has been hyped to the point of being A GLOBAL HOAX! [AlGore, call your office.]

What´s amazing about this is it costs gov´t more to turn the lights on, heat and air condition all those gov´t buildings, offices, schools, libraries, police stations, fire stations, etc...

Yes, it also cost more just to do that basic function, which then means less for salaries, benefits and pensions for those people.

The Democrats war on energy, particularly COAL, is hurting everyone by costing more.

Joe Manchin of WV should immediately switch parties, as should all the other "conservative" Democrats. He´d have more influence in the GOP than he ever will in Democrat party which is controlled by liberals.

Stupid AP article references "cleaner alternatives." But It doesn´t list them. Why? Because most Americans do not have nuclear power available to them and most cannot afford to put solar cells on their roof.

Just another step towards our total destruction, sanctioned by the EPA and EO´d by preezy.

Remember when he told us what he would do while campaigning the first time? Energy costs will necessarily skyrocket, right after his smug comment to those who would dare to build a coal plant. Good luck, but you will go bankrupt.

Hardly even a benevolent diktator at this point.

If you want to reduce CO2 emissions, allow the coal power plants to add natural gas for a combined cycle power plant that sells steam to run chemical plants next door. Adding natural gas turbines over the course of a 5 year period would allow you to step down CO2 emissions, while stepping up power production.

The way the CAA is written, existing facilities should be grandfathered. It sounds like these regulations also seem to change that part of the law.

lived in the same place for 20+ years, last week paid my first $500 PG&E bill (500.21 - Electric and gas) yes, we have a pool (above ground with solar heaters) and in an micro climate that can exceed 110F and yes I work at home when not traveling and maintain a few servers (that are not on 24/7)

20 years ago we had a sustained 8 week period with 100+ temps and AC working 20 hours a day - and the bill was less than $180 a month...

The Rule of the Lawless

Deserts always feel like my natural habitat, and I am very fond of them. That being said, I have, for my sins, spent a fair amount of time in Clark County, Nev., and it is not the loveliest stretch of desert in these United States, or even in the top twelve. Protecting the pristine beauty of the sun-baked and dust-caked outskirts of Las Vegas and its charismatic fauna from grazing cattle — which the Bureau of Land Management seems to regard as an Old Testament plague — seems to me to be something less than a critical national priority.

Washington- Sen. Ted Cruz said Attorney General Eric Holder should be impeached if he doesn’t indict former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner, who is linked to the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. Speaking on Sean Hannity’s radio program Thursday, the Texas Republican labeled Holder the “most partisan attorney general the country has ever had,” and added that Holder should be impeached for “defying Congress and the rule of law.” Cruz cited the attorney general’s refusal to indict anyone in the months since the inspector general found that conservative and Tea Party groups were singled out for tax purposes.

Before conservative policy wonks can win any policy victories, they’ll need to overhaul the Republican Party. For an idea of what that might look like and the challenges any transformation will entail, they should look to one of the party’s wonkiest politicians, Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal. Last week, as President Obama touted the 7.1 million private plan sign-ups in Obamacare’s first open enrollment period, Jindal gave the world a glimpse at what the outlines of a Republican alternative might look like. Not only would the plan repeal Obamacare; it would, among other things, overhaul the tax code to remove

Iowa Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley is still taking flak for his recent put-down of Sen. Chuck Grassley. That´s all wrong.

Tom Harkin, found himself at a fundraiser full of Texas trial attorneys. He scornfully warned that a GOP Senate would put the Judiciary Committee in the hands of "a farmer from Iowa [Mr. Grassley] who never went to law school."

Ted Cruz is not on the March 4 primary ballot. But his likeness is all over TV and in campaign materials, as a slew of Republican candidates on the primary ballot are using his words and — in rare occasions — his endorsement to reach out to voters. This year, having Cruz weigh in any way possible “is political gold,” said Mark P. Jones, a political science professor at Rice University in Houston. His thumbs up for a candidate serves “as a signal to Cruz’s plethora of supporters within the GOP primary electorate who the ‘true’ movement conservative in the in the race is,” he said. And that has made a number of candidates try to link themselves

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
