In August, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released the final rule in what it calls its Clean Power Plan

"The Obama EPA's so-called 'Clean Power' Plan to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from existing power plants is colossally expensive, blatantly illegal, and totally pointless," according to Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and the Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) in Washington, D.C.  The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee substantially supports CEI.

The plan will fulfill President Obama's promise made when he was running for president in 2008 to 'necessarily skyrocket' people's electric rates," Ebell continues.  "Consumers, particularly in the heartland States that have affordable electricity from coal-fired plants, are going to see their rates skyrocket, just as the President promised.  Workers are going to lose their jobs as energy-intensive manufacturing is forced out of the country."
