EPA DISMANTLES CLEAN POWER PLAN TO SAVE $33 BILLION

Pray for Americans in depressed areas of the country, for jobs and renewed hope. Pray also for the Trump Administration and Congress to make wise decisions about tax dollars.

Let the wise hear and increase in learning, and the one who understands obtain guidance . . . (Pr 1:5)

 

 

Following through on one of President Trump’s campaign vows to coal country, the Environmental Protection Agency [last] Tuesday moved to formally kill the Clean Power Plan, beginning a lengthy process to dismantle the key Obama-era climate regulation.

The long-awaited announcement by EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt will kick-start repeal proceedings on the rule, which limits carbon emissions from power plants and was explicitly designed to reduce the amount of coal burned across the country. Mr. Pruitt’s central argument — that the plan is an abuse of federal power and has no basis in law — will be challenged in court, with environmental groups and Democrats quickly vowing to fight any move to repeal the CPP.

But the EPA chief says he’s on solid legal footing, and that repeal will save as much as $33 billion over the next 13 years….

“The rule has been especially devastating to coal country,” House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said in a statement. “Congress will continue to work with the Trump administration to promote an energy strategy that gets government out of the business of picking winners and losers and instead encourages all types of energy sources.”

In explaining the rationale behind repeal, the EPA said the CPP is inconsistent with the federal Clean Air Act. Mr. Pruitt argues that the proposal forced the federal government to go far beyond simply requiring emissions controls at individual sources of pollution — like power plants — and instead sought to transform the entire U.S. electricity generation system through regulation, a concept referred to as acting “outside the fence line” of the actual sources of pollution….

Specialists say the overhaul of cost-benefit calculations is especially noteworthy moving forward. The new formula allows the administration to consider the harm of climate change domestically but throws out supposed worldwide benefits of addressing pollution at home.

“The government’s new method of accounting for climate harm is very important because in several cases this year — cases concerning gas pipelines and coal mines — federal courts have asked the Trump administration to calculate the harms from climate change. The Clean Power Plan shows how the Trump administration may calculate these harms going forward,” said James Coleman, a law professor at Southern Methodist University….

“Today’s proposal to revoke the Clean Power Plan is inconsistent with EPA’s core mission of protecting public health and the environment … The health impacts of climate change demand immediate action,” reads a statement from the American Lung Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, and more than a dozen other health and medical groups. “Failing to address this public health crisis will have lasting consequences. The longer our nation’s leaders postpone action to clean up carbon pollution and other greenhouse gases, the more severe the health costs will be.” (Excerpted from The Washington Times  , reporting by Ben Wolfgang.)

  1. Lord you know I lack understanding of how things are done and why people choose to do them. Thank you Father that you know all things and are greater and more powerful than men and women in elected offices. Father you have richly blessed us with clean air, water and good land so we can be healthy. Help us all to be good stewards of all you’ve given us. Lord you have breathed into us life and without you we are but dust. I pray for wisdom, guidance and obedience to your truths that praise and glory be given to you. I ask Lord that all elected and appointed officials seek you in all things especially concerning life. Free them from all the trappings of power, greed, lust and grant them hearts that seek and follow you in doing what is right for all peoples. Thank you Father for your love, presence, peace and the Light of your son Jesus. Thank you for your Holy Spirit who helps us in this life in Jesus name, amen. The peace of Christ be with all people! Lord in your Mercy hear and respond to my prayer.

  2. Can we have people praying about the smart meters and the smart grid and the 5G Towers and the harm that it’s doing to People’s Health and the bees and the other things that you might like to check out concerning those issues really quickly so that you can pray and pray and take action?? Just wondering hopefully no ostrich effect

  3. Thank my Lord for everything you have created is beautiful, I am not an expert in these things, but I ask you for wisdom and understanding to reveal to those people who are doing all these and that their heart is not on the profit that will come from this, but that it will be for the benefit of the people and not for their own. That they will not receive any bribes or anything that will be their motives. In Jesus Name

  4. Bless our President who is tireless in trying to rid us of Government tyranny. Lord i pray that this bill will be upheld in every court. I pray that the pro life bill will be passed in the Senate. Lord i pray that all that is bad in DC will be exposed and nullified. We continue to ask your protection on our President and his cabinet. Make all the crooked roads straight before them, and bless the works of their hands. In Jesus name, Amen

  5. Lord, i agree with Kelley. I pray that changes that have happened in industry that is bad for us would be exposed and that healthier ways to do it would be found. I know that the new tower down the street from us was responsible for me becoming more ill. We ask that GMO growth would stop for none of us do well with ingesting “Roundup”, and it is definitely killing our bees. Lord please bring your sanity to your people,and to the government that leads us . In Jesus name, Amen
