New EPA rules--exempts GE


#1

[LEFT]Last month, the Obama EPA began enforcing new rulesregulating the greenhouse gas emissions from any new or expanded power plants.[/LEFT]

This week, the EPA issued its first exemption, Environment & Energy News reports:

The Obama administration will spare a stalled power plant project in California from the newest federal limits on greenhouse gases and conventional air pollution, U.S. EPA says in a new court filing that marks a policy shift in the face of industry groups and Republicans accusing the agency of holding up construction of large industrial facilities.

[LEFT]According to a declaration by air chief Gina McCarthy, officials reviewed EPA policies and decided it was appropriate to “grandfather” projects such as the Avenal Power Center, a proposed 600-megawatt power plant in the San Joaquin Valley, so they are exempted from rules such as new air quality standards for smog-forming nitrogen dioxide (NO2).

This HAS to be another page of the Conservative agenda. GET RID of the EPA and abolish these regulations that have stymied jobs and created havoc in the American Workplace. The EPA has become a tool of the Progressive left and Socialist dominated politico landscape, sending a message to the world that America has become the ‘court jester’ to the world stage.

This must be another example of the EPA “protecting us” from the real danger.
