Having lived in Cincinnati all my life up to 4 years ago, I always thought the University of Cincinnati was a conservative college. Apparently not anymore. And with the Queen of Darkness, Ms. LISA JACKSON, the EPA head has constructed a new strategy to use college campuses and moron students there to hail her power-corrupt policies. Ah, just what we need in this country is more useful idiots.
Now, I recall a time when all the coal plants in Ohio were required to place scrubbers on them. We tax payers paid dearly for that endeavor for years with higher energy prices. Once again Ohio is going to be hit hard along with many other states for the new EPA clean air standards rules.
If I were one of these students’ parents who are protesting I would make sure I gave them this choice: You either go to college or we afford our new energy bill. Or if we have no energy, you can live out in the back yard in a tent without any heat whatsoever since we can’t afford to heat your bedrooms any longer. We are shutting off your heating vents you dummies!
Why send these kids to college? What do they learn other than communism or socialism. They come out of these universities dumber than dirt. They can’t even name the Vice President of the US for one thing. They may know who the president is, but no one else and they never know anything about the constitution unless sent to a private school.
At least 32 plants are on the chopping block now and another 36 may have to shut down because of new EPA air pollution rules. These plants supply energy for 22 million households.
According to the AP:
The fallout will be most acute for the towns where power plant smokestacks long have cast a shadow. Tax revenues and jobs will be lost, and investments in new power plants and pollution controls probably will raise electric bills.
The survey, based on interviews with 55 power plant operators and on the Environmental Protection Agency’s own prediction of power plant retirements, rebuts claims by critics of the regulations and some electric power producers.
They have predicted the EPA rules will kill coal as a power source and force blackouts, basing their argument on estimates from energy analysts, congressional offices, government regulators, unions and interest groups. Many of those studies inflate the number of plants retiring by counting those shutting down for reasons other than the two EPA rules.
At the above site you can read the list of coal plants to be shut down in 2012.
This might seem like a really dumb question, but has anyone in the EPA had a “thought” about how the people in these areas will get their electricity since there are no alternatives in place? Just asking.
The economy is bad enough without this added burden on folks who are barely able to make their mortgage payments and buy groceries.
Once again the Dictator in Chief “helps” out the middle class. And if you still fall for that one, I’ve got a stick to poke you in the eye with that will improve your eyesight.Hee hee, this feels better than looking at Lisa Jackson.
