    Much of electricity is generated by coal, the dirtiest of the fossil fuels. It just blows my mind that Obama has this dogma that liberals are intent in following even if it makes zero sense. Also have you thought about where the extra electric generation will come from if we suddenly had 100 million electric cars. Would this administration and the EPA allow for hundreds more polluting electric generatin plants. The administration to my knowledge has not allowed any nuclear plants to be built in their two plus years in office.

    Not likely...we have very few power plants using oil.
    Electric rates are very stable compared to what we pay for natural gas to heat our homes. Here is a good read....

    Nuclear is in the mix, and there are permits being issued. It takes a LONG time to build one, 2 years is not long enough...for sure.
    OTOH, there are a lot of new coal plants being builtl...

    Talk on his part....pandering to the liberals....we haven't had an engineer in the WH since Carter, the last president we had that remotely understands the energy issues.

    oh, no, an extremist green approach to energy and the environment is deep in the president's makeup, he'd push it as far as he could if he could

    his party actually passed cap and trade thru the lower house BEFORE obamacare, you'll recall, a huge political error

    it was killed, cap and trade, by the likes of bobby byrd and jay rockefeller

    downstairs, the ranking dem on ag this week co-sponsored a strip-epa measure, rockefeller has been demanding one for 2 years

    no, the only reason we haven't already gone further down the road obama pointed when he was talking to the chron is cuz he got his butt kicked politically on the issue by the reallists in his own party

    people like sherrod brown (who this week likened anti-unionists to hitler) and blanche lincoln who's no long there

    but joe manchin is

    stay up
