The Obama administration will formally adopt an ambitious regulation for cutting greenhouse-gas pollution on Monday, requiring every state to reduce emissions from coal-burning power plants and putting the country on a course that could change the way millions of Americans get their electricity.
A retooled version of the administration’s Clean Power Plan, first proposed a year ago, will seek to accelerate the shift to renewable energy while setting tougher goals for slashing carbon emissions blamed for global warming, according to administration officials briefed on the details.
The new plan sets a goal of cutting carbon pollution from power plants by 32 percent by the year 2030, compared with 2005 levels — a 9 percent jump from the previous target of 30 percent — while rewarding states and utility companies that move quickly to expand their investment in solar and wind power.
Obama To Unveil New Environmental Regulations Monday That Will Shut Down Hundreds Of Coal Plants
Obama's Plan to FORCE You to Pay More for Electricity... and it's WORKING!
In 2007 when Obama was running for the White House he told the San Francisco Chronicle that his energy policy would "necessarily" cause the price for the power for your home to "skyrocket." Now, three years into his term, we are seeing that he MEANT what he said!
Companies that make dishwashers are warning that the Obama administration’s latest efficiency standards for their industry would backfire.
The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers is accusing the Department of Energy (DOE) of a politically motivated drive to increase dishwasher efficiency standards, which are so bad that they would cause consumers to re-wash dishes, erasing any efficiency gains
....McAver brought DOE officials to his office recently to show them the results and released photos of it publicly this week

"I predict that all of this will fail and it's stupid, coz I is a Conservative and want to be angry!!!!!"
How dare the current government do anything to move things forward, do they think they have a responsibility to do what's right for the country or something?!
The response is basically "do nothing", as if that's in any way reasonable or rational.
