Ask any environmentalist or believer in man-made global warming what the featured image is, and they will without hesitation insist it is “pollution.”
Never mind that it is actually a nuclear power plant, and those are the cooling towers. And what is emanating from them is mostly steam with a small amount of particulate. Trust me, they won’t believe you.
The man-made global warming scam has gotten to the point where it is destroying lives, jobs and livelihoods, while making a few creators and their propagators of the myth extremely wealthy.
But now much of the rot and destruction caused by the Obama administration is coming to an end under the Trump administration. In 2015 President Obama’s EPA under Gina McCarthy put into place the most outrageous and expensive regulations ever. The Clean Power Plan, which supposedly was designed to lower power plant emissions by at least 32% of 2005 emissions by 2030. A regulation which assuredly would have put the final nail in the coffin to the coal industry.
But the plan never went into effect, thanks to all the lawsuits claiming it was unconstitutional. According to Breitbart:
Over 150 interested parties sued the EPA, including 27 states, 24 trade associations, 37 rural electric co-ops, and three labor unions sued the former EPA administration in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, arguing that the CPP was unconstitutional. A bipartisan group of 34 Senators and 171 members of the House filed an amicus brief arguing that the CPP was illegal and skirted Congress’ authority to legislate on environmental issues.
Based on the premise the Obama EPA exceeded its authority, in March of this year President Trump ordered his EPA Chief Scott Pruitt, a former state attorney general and at the time one who filed a lawsuit, to review the plan and give feedback,.
Now many news cites including Breitbart and the New York Times claim they have a 43-page document from the EPA which states President Trump’s decision is to repeal the Clean Power Plan in toto via a “Notice of Proposed Rule Making.”
But it’s possible Trump may propose an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) which would be a less dramatic plan. There are those who do hope and logically claim an ANPRM would be less likely to trigger many lawsuits than a full repeal with nothing to replace it, however, this writer’s best guess is Trump will work to completely overturn the “Clean Power Plan” even while risking these lawsuits.
After his decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accords, this would seem to be his next logical step and another campaign promise kept.
