Monday, as part of President Obama’s climate change agenda, the EPA proposed a plan to slash carbon dioxide emissions from power plants.
EPA administrator Gina McCarthy introduced the plan . . . .
McCarthy said, by 2030 when states accomplish their goals, it will result in 30% less carbon pollution than in 2005.
Texas Governor Rick Perry responded that, “President Obama’s decision to impose drastic new restrictions on America’s energy industry is the most direct assault yet on the energy providers that employ thousands of Americans, and fuel both our homes and our nation’s economic growth.” The governor said, “Americans have seen the disastrous results of federal mandates with Obamacare, and these rules will only further stifle our economy’s sluggish recovery and increase energy costs for American families.”
