Goodbye to Obama’s “Clean” Power Plan

   < < Go Back
from CFACT,

The Obama presidency was an era of bureaucratic overreach.

No bureaucratic agency was more arrogant, or heedless of its legal boundaries than EPA. No Obama regulation would have been more ruinous than the so-called “Clean” Power Plan. The “CPP” was so egregious that the Supreme Court put it on hold. Good thing.

This week Administrator Andrew Wheeler announced that EPA is scrapping the CPP.

This is big.

CFACT has been been exposing and fighting this destructive plan since its inception.

EPA devised its authority for the CPP by converting 80 words in the Clean Air Act into 2,690 pages of regulations and appendices. The unprecedented plan required that utilities return the nation’s overall CO2 emissions almost to 1975 levels, while our population grows by a projected 40 million.

The CPP would have cost a fortune to tax and ratepayers and would have chased still more American manufacturing jobs overseas.

While the federal government loosens the regulatory screws on our energy economy, state and local governments are moving in the wrong direction.

The New York legislature adopted a whopper. We posted details at
