EPA May Regulate Carbon from Coal Plants

EPA may regulate carbon from coal palntsIn a major policy shift [ark] by the new Obama administration, the EPA has announced it will reexamine the possibility of regulating carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants. While not finalized, this is the first step towards meeting our recent alert's demand that carbon dioxide be regulated under the Clean Air Act [search].
The new President is to be congratulated for thinking about sufficient policy adequate to truly address the threat posed by abrupt and run-away climate change. Without regulations on coal plants, to ensure no more are built that emit into the atmosphere, there is little chance of salvaging an operable atmosphere. What an exciting and effective climate change movement [search] of which we and President Obama are part. Let's make sure we stay on top of this one and support the President to get it implemented. And remember, no matter what anyone may tell you, coal kills really bad.

    The essence of the Clinton trip to China and perhaps the EPA regulations to come seems to be “clean coal” requirements. Clean coal promises have been around for a long time and have not materialized. Just about another 5 or 10 years we are told, its on the drawing boards and/or undergoing testing.
    The demand should be no new coal plants until the “clean coal” plants are vetted by impartial climate advocates. Otherwise we are being fooled again by the Big Lie, similar to troops retreating from Iraq into Afghanistan.
