How do you spell “stupid”â¢ EPA.
How do you spell “idiotic”â¢ EPA.
How do you spell “monomaniacal”â¢ EPA.
It’s official. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will now require that pollution permits be based on its onerous BACT standards or “Best Available Control Technology.” It’s an attempt to reduce “greenhouse gases” by 20 percent by 2020.
But as the Manufacturers Alliance figures it, this highly dubious EPA diktat — considered to be the most expensive ever promulgated at a staggering $90 billion — will cost Pennsylvania 351,000 jobs over the next 10 years. Nationwide, the job losses could exceed 7.3 million.
Ardent common sense-seeker James Inhofe, the Republican U.S. senator of Oklahoma, says the new rules would allow the EPA to effectively control the fates of not just manufacturing facilities but 260,000 office buildings, 150,000 warehouses, 92,000 health-care facilities, 71,000 hotels and motels, 51,000 food service facilities, 37,000 churches and 17,000 farms. Can the home hearth be far behind?
And all for virtually no effect on global temperatures that the eco-imbeciles say must be reduced lest we watch Planet Earth cook, shrivel and die.
The EPA is nuts. But the American people are nuttier if they don’t put a stop to this idiocy now.
