    New EPA rules will cost more than 800,000 jobs

    Hotair.com, found a prime example of how the Obama administration is doing more to kill jobs, than to help the private sector create jobs. This is proof positive that the government can only kill jobs, not create jobs.

    Actually, it’s not just the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee’s minority contingent that fears the loss of nearly a million jobs from new EPA rules on greenhouse gases and other emissions issues. It’s also groups like the United Steel Workers, Unions for Jobs and the Environment, and experts like King’s College Professor Ragnar Lofstedt. Hot Air got an exclusive look at a report that the EPW minority staff will release later this morning detailing the economic damage that an activist EPA will do to the American economy, and which will come at perhaps the worst possible time, both economically and politically.

    The executive summary spells out the stakes involved in the effort to rein in the EPA:

    •New standards for commercial and industrial boilers: up to 798,250 jobs at risk;
    •The revised National Ambient Air Quality Standard for ozone: severe restrictions on job creation and business expansion in hundreds of counties nationwide.
    •New standards for Portland Cement plants: up to 18 cement plants at risk of shutting down, threatening nearly 1,800 direct jobs and 9,000 indirect jobs;
    •The Endangerment Finding/Tailoring Rules for Greenhouse Gas Emissions: higher energy costs; jobs moving overseas; severe economic impacts on the poor, the elderly, minorities, and those on fixed incomes; 6.1 million sources subject to EPA control and regulation

    Climate change skeptics get to play the "biased source" card at will, so it's my turn:

    The committee is headed by Senator Inhofe. It's biased.

    .: U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works :: Minority Page :.

    They can't even manage to be impartial on their official website.

    Bam. Handwave achieved. Man, this is a way easier method of debate!

    Your title should probably read "may/might cost" not "will cost", since the report quite clearly says that these are feared job losses, not actual.

    Well, it's an easy step to take a fear to the sky is falling. the politics of fear is based on that exact premise. And it works.

    Sadly.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Yea, get rid of the EPA and all those rules!... It will make so many jobs! Screw that you cant breath the air or drink the water, and the soil your kids are playing in is giving them cancer.. we got jobs! well a few any ways. Guess the coffin business would be a good thing to go in.. after the materials are free... can just cut down random trees and dump the corpses wherever they want. Reuse coffins! or is that too environmentalist?

    Something akin to "jobs created or saved"?
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
