‘Wave’ Of Opposition To EPA Power Grab Grows

‘Publication Of The EPA's Carbon Rule … Has Prompted A Flurry Of Legal And Legislative Action’

SEN. MITCH McCONNELL (R-KY): “The publication of these regulations does not represent an end, but a beginning. It’s the beginning of a new front to defend hardworking Middle Class Americans from massive regulations that target them. That front is opening here in Congress, and it’s opening across the country as states file lawsuits and Governors stand up for their own Middle Class constituents.” (Sen. McConnell, Floor Remarks, 10/27/15)

‘Wave Of Litigation Hits Obama Climate Rule,’ ‘Both Chambers Of Congress This Week Are Set To Join The Avalanche Of Attacks’

“The publication of the EPA's carbon rule for power plants has prompted a flurry of legal and legislative action, ushering in a lengthy battle… More than two dozen states and a slew of interest groups and companies sued … on Friday after it was published in the Federal Register.” The Hill, 10/24/15)

“Both chambers of Congress this week are set to join the avalanche of attacks on the Obama administration’s rules limiting emissions from the power sector.” (“Republicans Attack Climate Rules To Send Message To UN,” National Journal, 10/26/15)
  • “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced plans this week to introduce a CRA resolution with Democrat Joe Manchin to block the administration’s rules limiting carbon emissions from new power plants. Sens. Shelley Moore Capito and Heidi Heitkamp will introduce an accompanying resolution to stop the rules for existing power plants, and leaders say they’ll move quickly to get them to the floor.” (“Republicans Attack Climate Rules To Send Message To UN,” National Journal, 10/26/15)
“…sows seeds of doubt about the climate plan as the Obama administration works … with the international community ahead of United Nations climate talks in Paris at the end of the year.” (“Republicans Attack Climate Rules To Send Message To UN,” National Journal, 10/26/15)

OBAMA’S CLIMATE CRUSADE: 224,000 Jobs ‘Eliminated,’ ‘Electricity Bills Up,’ ‘$50 Billion In Annual Costs’

“The heart of the U.S. commitment consists of proposed EPA power plant regulations that industry groups and congressional Republicans are already trying to undercut, both by pursuing court challenges and by urging states not to comply.” <(“Obama Pledges Greenhouse Gas Emissions Cuts,” Politico, 3/31/15)
(“Chamber: Costs Of EPA Climate Rule Could Top $50 Billion A Year,” The Hill, 5/28/14) DANIEL P. SCHRAG, White House Climate Adviser: ‘A war on coal is exactly what’s needed’ “The one thing the president really needs to do now is to begin the process of shutting down the conventional coal plants. …a war on coal is exactly what’s needed.” (The New York Times, 6/25/13)
  • Obama EPA Official: ‘Make examples out of people’ “The Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go into a little Turkish (sic) town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they would crucify them. And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years. And so you make examples out of people...” Forbes, 4/26/12)
AT THE U.N.: Trillions More In Anti-Energy ‘Reparations’ Demanded

JOHN STERMAN: “The pledges countries have made ‘are a big step forward, but not sufficient — not even close,’ said John D. Sterman, a professor of management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.” (“Limited Progress Seen Even As More Nations Step Up On Climate,” The New York Times, 9/28/15)

“Bruising fights are still expected at the Paris conference, especially over money. Poor countries … are demanding billions from rich countries to help them manage.” (“Limited Progress Seen Even As More Nations Step Up On Climate,” New York Times, 9/28/15)
PRAKASH JAVADEKAR, Indian Environment Minister: “‘Others are responsible. We are not. We are the sufferers,’ he said. We are the vulnerable countries, and they [developed nations] are paying part of it. I can call it reparations.’” (“India and Brazil Will Not Follow China's Pledge To Donate To Poorer Nations' Climate Efforts,” E&E, 9/28/15)
  • “In a just world the United States would pay back the $4 trillion dollars it owes, according to new research, for trashing the climate. … Now, if you calculate the debt using the US’s own social cost of carbon—the dollar value damage each ton of CO2 pollution does, currently pegged at $40 a ton—then the climate debtors’ total is damage is massive. There are 250 billion tons of carbon debt accumulated since 1990, Matthews figures, so that amounts to $10 trillion. Yes, trillion—$10 trillion that polluting industrial nations owe climate creditor nations like India, China, and Nigeria who have stayed under their carbon budgets.” (“The US Owes The World $4 Trillion…” Motherboard, 9/9/15)
