    Obama EPA kills power plant, 3,900 jobs in Texas

    Now I understand why Obama didn't mention jobs in his speech the other day.


    Obama EPA kills power plant, 3,900 jobs in Texas
    January 24, 2013 | 9:56 am

    Chase Power, the parent company behind the $3 billion Las Brisas coal power plant in Corpus Christi, Texas, announced yesterday that it was cancelling the project.

    “Chase Power … has opted to suspend efforts to further permit the facility and is seeking alternative investors as part of a plan of dissolution for the parent company,” Chase CEO Dave Freysinger told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.

    Freysinger made it very clear who was responsible for the projects death. “The (Las Brisas Energy Center) is a victim of EPA’s concerted effort to stifle solid-fuel energy facilities in the U.S., including EPA’s carbon-permitting requirements and EPA’s New Source Performance Standards for new power plants,” he said

    Holy misleading headline. A more accurate headline would be CEO blames own failure on Obama and EPA with no supporting evidence. Las Brisas project halted » Corpus Christi Caller-TimesHe had problems getting past state level standards. Good to see the Beltway Confidential continues it's fine record of lies and deception.

    That line of bull came from a former EPA official who heads the Sierra Club’s national “Beyond Coal” campaign. The truth is, Las Brisas applied for its air permit in May 2008 and received approval from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality in January 2011. The only issues that were holding them up were national ones based on new EPA standards.

    Actually they still had problems with Texas. From my already supplied link:

    The air quality issue culminated in July, when Travis County District Court Judge Stephen Yelenosky ordered the TCEQ to take a more in-depth look at the permit, particularly where it addressed the way the company planned to handle, store and transport petroleum coke onto the site, and the commission’s failure to review the plant according to the latest National Ambient Air Quality Standards.
    Your story is nothing but a CEO blaming others for his failures in true conservative fashion.

    Not to mention that coal power plants are geing completely destroyed by natural gas prices plummeting.

    Coal Loses Crown As King Of Power Generation

    Just a few years ago, Georgia Power generated nearly three-fourths of its electricity with coal. Last year, for the first time, natural gas edged out coal, and just this week the company announced plans to close 10 coal-fired power generators within the next few years.

    The dramatic and swift shift away from coal at Georgia Power is part of a nationwide trend: After decades in which coal was king of electricity generation, natural gas is making a bid for the title. And it's scoring big, unexpected wins in places like Georgia, where coal was especially dominant.

    Maybe you need a translation of the last few words from what you quoted:

    ...according to the latest National Ambient Air Quality Standards
    Aka... Latest EPA standards, not standards imposed by the state.

    Apparently you do not know what TCEQ is. Hint: the T stands for Texas. You are also having problems with the word "and". Or you deceptively snipped part of the quote.

    Taking a look at, and denying them a permit are 2 different things.

    So what we know is your source lied in it's headline(Beltway Confidential never tells the truth), they had more problems that the EPA and Obama, but you refuse to do anything but look at what one person said and accept it without question because it is what you want to hear. I find that interesting.

    You can spin this all you want but the bottom line is, Obama's new non-congressionally approved EPA standards are going to cost America 10's of 1000's more jobs and raise electricity rates on nearly everyone in the country.

    Now who do you think is going to suffer the most from this... The rich or the middle class and poor?
