    Re: EPA Set to reveal new Sulfer regulations

    Sulfur burns in Oxygen to make Sulfur Dioxide and other Sulfur Oxides.
    When Sulfur Oxides are mixed with Water Vapor, we get Sulfurous Acid and Sulfuric Acid, acid rain and acid snow.
    Folks seem to forget that these acids lower the pH of lakes and kill fish, to say the least.

    Did I mention yet what it's like to live downwind of these plants.
    Any of you should notice the refinery on the East side of Cheyenne, Wyoming and their down-wind neighbors .

    Or the EPA could be full of **** and reaching for straws to increase their political power. Hmm, actual science or political power, wonder which a leftist is most likely to go for? Especially leftist who's so called science is always incomplete and questionable.

    More CON crap. First off the coal in VW was getting too expensive to tunnel mine, too deep, too dangerous as recent mine deaths have shown. Mines were collecting safety violations like drunk co-eds collect Mardi Gras beads. Eastern coal is dirty coal, out west it is hard coal and burns hotter, and with less impurities it is much cleaner.

    It isn't the EPA that is closing Eastern mines, it is the mines playing out, the coal being dirty, the acid rain showing us how bad the coal was, and western coal being a MUCH better energy source.

    Yeah that's it...

    A CON can't prove anything so it is the Gubmint power grabbing... not trying to reduce smog, health issues, and general pollution like other countries are doing....

    Fuel makers have said that the new regulations will cost you 10 cents more per gallon at the pump. at a time when people are already feeling cost increases from insurance, food, etc ... we now get hit at the pump due to more government regulations.

    ...and the price of everything that is delivered by truck goes up...

    If you want a CON to prove something, then perhaps you should ask one of them instead of me.

    And you still have not answered the question about how the EPA measures things. So, how can the EPA determine the g/mi (grams per mile) measurements they use if they do not know a vehicles actual fuel mileage?

    As if groceries weren't high enough already. And you left off all the fuel used to plow and harvest crops.

    As to other things, funny you should bring up smoking, since second hand smoke is blamed for the same diseases the EPA is blaming on sulfur emissions. So who is right, the EPA or the FDA?
    Um, the EPA knows the fuel mileage of a vehicle.

    And, are you under the impression that respiratory disease can't be caused by two things?

    Economy is poor.

    EPA: I think we can pass more regulations.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one that sees that as stupid.

    Here is an idea, shut up for a while.
    Yeah. When the economy is better I'll be able to afford treatment for my lung cancer. This works out great!
