    Anther example from the extreme left of their disdain for the poor and middle class as their policies drive up the cost of heat and electricity for them.

    m.g. scott--Go Nuclear?

    President Barry would set limits on that too! It's got to be solar.

    Are global temperatures going up or not? Make up your mind DMN. Yesterday you published an article indicating they haven't gone up in more than a decade.

    We'll see how these regulations work or not. Government double-speakers always say the new policy to shut them down is actually intended to "HELP" the industry they are trying to get rid of. Cutting the military budget is always intended to HELP the military, cutting Pensions is always couched as trying to HELP the employees, cutting Social Security is always intended to HELP retirees. etc.

    I don't want any Obama fans complaining when energy prices sky-rocket.

    If unemployment is up in 1/3 of the states, doesn't that mean....? Oh, never mind.

    Not only are these new regulations harsh and unnecessary but they are also for the most part entirely symbolic. They apply to only new coal based power plants and do not affect existing power plants. The fact is that coal use for power is on the decline and there are few if any new coal power plants in the works. Natural gas is plentiful, and cheaper and is what the majority of new power plants will be using.

    It's silly and almost humorous that the EPA administrator would actually try to make people think that these new coal emission restrains will actually be good for the industry. What a farce! How gullible does she really think people are? But then again, she did probably realize she was talking to many of those who voted for the president.

    Just yesterday there was an AP article that said scientists are now baffled in trying to explain why global warming hasn't worsened over the past number of years... essentially admitting that perhaps global warming isn't as real as they originally believed. And in response, we get this nonsensical reply from our president... trying so desperately to push his agenda regardless of what science says or admits. He's quickly becoming President Irrelevant.
