Obama unveils climate change plan that goes around Congress

LINK

****NOTE! (Just for you Vegas): From the link I have provided above, you can read the entire article from which I have quoted portions that caught my attention.****


quote:

President Obama is launching fresh battles over climate change with plans to curb emissions using executive powers that sidestep Congress — including controversial rules to cut carbon pollution from existing power plants.


quote:

programs to help harden communities against climate-fueled extreme weather.


What the...

quote:

Obama’s plan will “effectively crush the economy in West Virginia, Kentucky, Alaska, Arkansas, and Louisiana — not to mention plenty of other states like Michigan.”


quote:

“Whether or not Mark Begich, Mark Pryor, Mary Landrieu, Kay Hagan, Gary Peters or any candidates in these states support the initiative is irrelevant — the fact is that their embrace of the Obama agenda is hurting folks back in their home states,”


quote:

curb U.S. support for overseas coal plant construction,


quote:

The plan is designed to get around Congress


quote:

Obama’s executive approach “reflects reality.”


quote:

far-reaching rules to curb carbon from existing power plants, which account for around a third of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, largely due to coal-plant emissions.


quote:

Tackling existing plants is a step the EPA has previously said it would take, but now, for the first time, the agency has open White House backing.


quote:

“While President Obama is preparing to roll out a new ream of red tape that will make American energy more expensive and destroy jobs, the House is moving forward with its all-of-the-above energy agenda this week,”


quote:

Environmentalists say they will work to create traction and help fend off attacks on Obama’s plans.

Solar panel pricing just dropped pretty big time. Clean energy is the future lets go ahead and start making the transition now.

The only course of action to stop it would be for congress to defund the EPA, while they are at it, might as well defund the IRS and dept of education.

That would take political courage, which is completely absent from the congressional GOP.

over the last 5 years the price has cut in half for solar panels. The price will continue to drop over time.

Interesting you refer to Solar Panels as "Clean Energy"

LINK

I know this is an old article, but I don't think the technology is ready for a big transition yet. Between Obama's new plan and the soon to hit 15% Ethanol gas, I guess it will just be forced upon us.

Anyone else feel like this is the beginning to Star Wars? You know, when the Moffs are all debating at the table about how to get the Senate to cooperate with their nefarious plans, and Tarkin tells them that the Senate has been dissolved, problem solved?

we're getting closer. It's definitely time to start considering it and planning for it. I'm all for using anything that is limitless or close to limitless for power production. Supply and demand laws mean that it should make it really really cheap if our government will stay out of it with the red tape and bull shite taxes to drive the price up.

Why is it you chose to edit these two quotes?

quote:

quote: Obama’s plan will “effectively crush the economy in West Virginia, Kentucky, Alaska, Arkansas, and Louisiana — not to mention plenty of other states like Michigan.”

quote: “Whether or not Mark Begich, Mark Pryor, Mary Landrieu, Kay Hagan, Gary Peters or any candidates in these states support the initiative is irrelevant — the fact is that their embrace of the Obama agenda is hurting folks back in their home states,”


Let's see what you intentionally left out:

An NRSC spokesman alleged over the weekend that Obama’s plan will “effectively crush the economy in West Virginia, Kentucky, Alaska, Arkansas, and Louisiana — not to mention plenty of other states like Michigan.” 

“Whether or not Mark Begich, Mark Pryor, Mary Landrieu, Kay Hagan, Gary Peters or any candidates in these states support the initiative is irrelevant — the fact is that their embrace of the Obama agenda is hurting folks back in their home states,” said Brad Dayspring, the GOP group’s communications director. 

wow! You are one dishonest sob!

In the meantime....what about the economies of those states listed?

Liberalism is a disease.

what? Are you really that naive? The gov is already looking to replace revenue lost from electric cars. Do you think the gov is going to EVER willingly give up tax revenue?

I've yet to find anything to government won't frick up. The free market in america is a fricking joke anymore, there is no free market there's a rigged game we're all forced to play or risk being chastised by count chocula at a gas station.

Yea i've seen that, it's disgusting to me that they'd do that.

quote:

Probably not. I wish they would but probably not.


I'd also like to work this in here so i'm not misunderstood. I hate the work arounds obama has found in the system to force through whatever agenda he wants. It bothers me that those work arounds are there and it bother me if either side were to use them like he does.


I just think we should definitely focus on renewable sustainable energy and promote it heavily for a couple of reasons.

1. it'll be a very profitable industry around the world once day and it would be a great industry to have all the big advancements under our belt helping our economy.

2. At the end of the day I think solar panels are the answer to not needing to rely on our power grids we currently have setup. I think it would be cool to have the option to solar panel your house and then let the grid serve as your backup power supply.

So the OP was a little selective in his quoting. What about the content of the article?

Everyone should be concerned by the administration's use of the executive privilege.
