    Its not just what regulations are on the books but how they are interpretted and enforced by the head of the EPA. They have some leeway in regulatory changes. It depends on how they will use it.
    Even if money and jobs are lost by shutting down coal plants, the energy they produced must then be replaced. And that could mean natural gas plants with far higher efficiency and low cost fuel. These will mean jobs gained and money made. On balance, it all works out.

    Thanks for parachuting into an issue you do not fully comprehend (and I don't claim to either) and offering one side of the story while feigning outrage. There must be some issue out there you fully understand that would be a better use of your rage.

    On your part NOT "NUFF SAID" or "Too much said", take your pick.

    Funny how you first deny they exist, then when you finally come to the conclusion they do, make posts like this one so you can avoid dealing with the fact they cost jobs and will raise electricity prices.

    That is how programming works, it starts with denial.

    In the future, please don't lecture people on what is, and what is not, a "factual" source, since it's now clear that the ones you subscribe to are anything but.

    3,900 jobs lost that never existed. Lumps in the local air that will be missed forever. Gads, the irony. I feel so sorry for the po' millionaires progeny that will forever have been denied the lump legacy.

    Evidence that B.o is fundamentally opposed to fossil fuels and has made statements that any coal fired plants would be put out of bussiness by his massive Govt penalties has some how eluded the "objective" WIKI sources.

    Just more bling allegiance by the liberal left as he drives this Countries economy into the ditch with his stupidity.

    So where are those regulations Grim? I know the answer, why don't you? Are you going to keep trying to evade forever, denying facts and pushing opinions as facts?

    Your "lumps" are as ficticious as the Obama recovery. But your demagogy was completely expected

    3900 jobs who were going to be supplied by a gaggle of individuals who are completely dependent on Govt assistance.

    Wait, thats not right.......welfare recipients don't create jobs, they hinder them.

    irony is the sector Obama works so hard to vilify is the sole creator of any new employment or positive economic movement in his 4 years of economic destruction.

    You come off as a lib so I'll go ahead and spell out the sectors identification.

    Energy Sector.

    Imagine if Obama hadn't thrown billions into a massive fire pit called Green Energy Companies where we would be......

    Oh wait, we would be right here....

    Watching as Fracking catapuls us into National energy independence as the stupidity of solar and wind rot away under the massive pressure of their own impracticallity.

    But Libs, poor things who usually don't possess the base IQ to understand the actual technical aspects of converting photovoltaic DC to usable polyphase AC are only parroting their parties talking points.

    New heat requirements on Boiler plants combined with the 2nd item for what they call MACT regulations on boilers.
    New Clean Air Act requirements on particulates or MATS.
    Tightening Ozone requirements--specifically non attainment meaning that once a community hits particulate caps, they cant open any other businesses with pollution.

    And FFS Redress that last story was Rueters another was USNews and the otehr Forbes. Yet Politifact and CBS are supposed to be reliable? Cmon. Address the topic and stop playing kill the messenger.
