    EPA Set to reveal new Sulfer regulations

    http://www.nytimes.com/2014/03/03/us...rule.html?_r=0

    The Environmental Protection Agency plans to unveil a major new regulation on Monday that forces oil refiners to strip out sulfur, a smog-forming pollutant linked to respiratory disease, from American gasoline blends, according to people familiar with the agency’s plans.
    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.

    How much does respiratory disease cost? I need to know so that I can make an informed decision as a consumer as to whether I want cheaper gasoline or healthier lungs.

    Well if I recall correctly there is always some excuse for not improving our air quality due to cost. I understand some see only 'more gubmint redtape' but for most of us it is about air quality and smog. There is even a CON politician onboard, because he can literally see the smog caused by gasoline and diesel sulfur.

    While who are we to doubt a paid shill for big oil... -the cost in gas is still up in the air... to use a phrase.

    Seems like everyone is willing to accept the new standards to include the auto industry, tasked with meeting EPA emission standards, sort of tough to do without clean fuel. Seems also we are lagging behind other nations in cleaning up our fuel to clean up our air.

    I wonder if the Big Oil shill calculates the additional expense of trying to refine the tar sand sludge into the calculation. Seems the refineries are ok with additional steps when it suits them.

    The only way to improve air quality is to dismantle the current EPA, lock all current environmentalist in an insane asylum and bring in real scientist to figure out what is really happening.

    Yeah some 'real' scientists... I hear the fellas who's research said Smoking is safe are available now.

    Maybe Anthony Watts could head it, oh wait he didn't ever graduate college...

    Tell you what, answer a simple question for me, and I'll believe what you say. How can the EPA accurately measure the g/mi of emissions without knowing the fuel mileage of the vehicle?

    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?

    Great, now the greenies are going to attack oil the same way they've been attacking coal....Take a look around WV, and SE KY these days, and take it all in, that is the new norm progressives want.

    That is a CON game- I go to a doctor if I am sick because he is trained to understand medicine, disease and treatments. I damn sure don't go to a fraud who didn't even graduate college for medical advise.

    Next CON game- why can't there be more than one cause for these diseases? Cigarette smoke, no matter the hands, and sulfur emissions, throw in smoke smoke in areas where inversion layers occur, how about coal plants burning high sulfur coal- that isn't a car????

    So, just so I understand, you wouldn't see a doctor that didn't put in the requisite training, and schooling to become an MD, is that right?
