Now that the silliness has begun at the EPA, it is time to take a serious look at how this will impact the lives of those living in the U.S.
We already know that gasoline-powered automobiles and coal-fired power plants have been targeted for extinction. But the EPA may be stomping through the CO2 thicket trying to flush out even more targets. So would you be surprised if natural gas is next?
Coal and natural gas are the most abundant sources of energy in the U.S. There are trillions of cubic feet of natural gas available. The problem is that once-clean natural gas is now the source of severe pollution. The EPA simply cannot apply one standard for coal-fired power plants and another for natural gas plants. They both produce CO2 as a by-product of combustion. This is the formula for the combustion of natural gas:
See... CO2 !!! But that's not all. H2O !!! Yes, another greenhouse gas !!! Could it get any worse ???
Take a look at this chart.
23.2% of the U.S. electricity is produced at power plants producing these dangerous pollutants from dirty, filthy natural gas. What's worse is that most of the natural gas comes from right here in the U.S. !!!
Sure, natural gas may produce less CO2 per equivalent energy from gasoline or coal, but CO2 is CO2. Walk the talk!
It is time the EPA pushed forward with the latest "Chinese solution" ... wind turbines manufactured by our largest creditor.
We can have non-polluting power subsidized by Chinese manufacturing at worker-friendly facilities using the latest clean-air methods [must see]... and get rid of hundreds of thousands of those pesky birds and bats that pollute our view of the sky. Of course, we will have to ignore those wind turbines, but we'll get used to them as "background noise."
What could be better than that?
We strongly urge the EPA to take action to save us from warmer temperatures and filthy energy.
No doubt our government will somehow have to come up with cash for all of us to convert our home heating and electricity for cooling to more natural methods.
