    Here's another story for you to deny Redress:

    Obama EPA Regulations Kill 15 Power Plants, 480 jobs in Georgia
    9 January 2013

    Georgia Power asked state regulators for permission to shut down 15 power plants yesterday, claiming new regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) make the plants too expensive to run.

    The 15 coal-, oil- and natural gas-fired power plants currently produce 2,061 megawatts (MW) for Georgia energy consumers. Georgia Power plans to close 11 of the plants on the exact day the EPA’s new mercury regulations are set to take effect, April 16, 2015. Georgia Power will seek waivers from the EPA to keep four of the other plants open for a single year, and then shut those down too on April 16, 2016. It is unclear how the Georgia energy sector will make the 2 gigawatts up.

    So let me get this straight... You are denying that those regulations exist?

    Really?

    I am stating, quite clearly, that you have not shown the regulations exist.

    Texas became the number one state for wind power thanks to the Bush admin. So that quip doesn't fly. It's still not enough to meet their power requirements.

    You have Grim at a disadvantage, he's reading right-wing "news." Which is more than liklely funded by the billionaire Koch brothers who are heavily into coal.

    What are these regulations and how do they finactually impact energy production?

    Like I said Texans don't want a polluted state. Nor will we put up with it! BTW the wind farms out in W Texas are an amazing sight to see. Windmills as far as the eye can see!

    Nor do I plan to...

    There are plenty of sources, including a report from the United States Senate, which confirms the existence of those regulations. Even Democratic Senator Thomas Carper, the chairman of the Subcommittee on Clean Air and Nuclear Safety, confirmed their existence when he was asked for his comments on Senator Inhofe's report by Marcia Yerman at the Huffington Post and said:


    "After decades of delay, last December (2011), the Environmental Protection Agency finally acted to require dirty coal and oil-fired power plants to clean up their mercury and deadly air toxic emissions. By targeting our nation's largest sources of mercury, this regulation requires polluters to reduce mercury emissions by 90 percent -- which will reduce the mercury that contaminates our streams and fish and end up in our children..."


    Let me guess... Even the Democratic senator is lying too, right? Since I know this is just about giving me a hard time and you really aren't that ill informed and out of touch, why don't you just end this nonsense? If you just can't bring yourself to quit this BS and decide you want to continue being an ass by pursuing this, then I'll tell you what I'll do... I will dig up the laws for you, provided you find someone from either the EPA or the Obama administration who denies the existence of the regulations that Senator Inhofe listed in his report?

    Your call...
