EPA limits carbon pollution from new power plants

Washington (CNN) - The Environmental Protection Agency is proposing new rules aimed at limiting the amount of carbon pollution coming from new power plants.

The standards, which would set separate limits for natural gas and coal power plants, are being called the first uniform national limits for new plants.

    I do sohope that this winter is so cold that there's not enough electric power to heat Washington. when the epa tries to use anything that deal with electricity, it's not there.
    Coal is what keeps the power on, hope you can stay warm and food on your table and not afraid of the dark. Because with out coal, and no jobs its going to be a long 3 years left.

    just asking
    do the left wing whack jobs in here think the air sits still in one place? all of our clean air goes all over and gets polluted by chinese and indian polution. what next? you going to put a domne over the usa to keep the other air out and our clean air in?

    i don't mind doing sensible things to lower emissions and pollution but to go over board and start shutting down power plants and the coal industry is sheer insanity. democrat shave become environmental zealots and economic terrorists.
    Glad to hear you declare you want to destroy the Earth. Idiot!

    this is why you can't have a logical and reasonable discussion with the looney left. after I say i am for sensible measures to reduce emissions, the looney left screams i want to destroy the earth. did you not read what i wrote? to these radical environmental zealots, common sense cannot be allowed. it is their insane position or nothing. this is how whole industries like the coal industry get shut down by far left economic terrorists that think they know what is best for everybody and are hell bent on forcing you to do whatever it is they want to do.
