Got off topic responding to an earlier comment. The restrictions will raise energy costs and cost jobs at least in this state. Like everything else they try to do, it won't work and will somehow raise taxes. However, it is every human's responsibility to be a good steward of the earth. If they can come up with green energy solutions that are formidable, I'm all for it.

The stock market is owned by the government and like 10 billionaires. Everyone lost all their equity in the market years ago. When they quit propping up the market, it will crash again, at least this time it won't have the same kind of effect this time, because everyone already lost all their investments. It will lead to high interest rates and hyper inflation. Add in the heat care act, higher fuel prices, higher food prices and lower incomes and voila, you have one transformed America. Hopefully not though.

Did theses intellectual leaders ever take a simple geography class?? We live in the northern hemisphere. Which way does the winds blow in the northern hemisphere? Right...west to east. We are forced to clean the air at our expense, then the winds blow our clean air east into Europe where it again begins to become dirty. Then the winds in Europe blow the dirty air into Asia where it becomes filthy. Then the winds blow the filthy air from Asia back to us in the USA!! YES, we are forced to clean it again to repeat the cycle over and over. Proof of this is when the radiation from the Japan nuclear plant was found in the western USA. Also, all their garbage washed ashore on our Pacific coast. Make to WORLD clean up their air too...not Just us!! Does anyone in Washington understand elementary Geography?? Or do $$$ prevail??? When our our representatives going to represent what WE want not their OWN views?? IF not we are doomed, not by climate change, but by their stupidity and*****for $$.

How conceited of president moonbeam to think that man can control the climate?

Man can control dirty air, dirty waters, dirty brown fields, but the idea that man can control "the climate" what ever that term means, is absu

Cont.

Impossible regulations that would allow for building any new, cleaner, more efficient plants.

Did we mention that China and India are bringing a new coal fired electrical generated plant each and every week?

Could that be a reason for them eating America's lunch?

In the 1970's it was "global cooling" and a "new ice age" that the environmentalists were threatening us with.

Then, in a few short short years, it has been "global warming" that we are threatened with .

Then to cover their butts, the progressives re-badged the whole weather cycle package as "climate change", they admittedly fudged the data, and if anyone questions them, we are told "there is no time for debate with the flat earth society".

And now president moonbeam again thinks that he can personally "heal" the planet (at our expense) by shutting down America's coal fired electrical plants while China and India bring a new coal fired electrical plant on line each and every week!

Even though our record of reduction in emissions has been admirable over the past 20 years, the Feds stand in the way of further modernization of coal fired electrical plants by the impossible regulations heaped on our existing plants and im

Obonehead and WP share that special kind of stupid. This is just another act to take attention away from all of his scandals as he set off on his $100 million family sequester tour.

Carbon dioxide is produced by combustion of coal or hydrocarbons, the fermentation of sugars in beer and winemaking and by respiration of all living organisms. It is exhaled in the breath of humans and land animals. It is emitted from volcanoes, hot springs, geysers and other places where the earth's crust is thin and is freed from carbonate rocks by dissolution. CO2 is also found in lakes, at depth under the sea and commingled with oil and gas deposits.

Should we regulate these other emitters? Regulate volcanoes, human breathing, ban alcohol fermentation processes!

The Stocks are adjusting on the threat of pulling the stimulus.

Wrong! It's the quantitative easing printing! That's above and beyond the trillion! Obama is failing this country!

Once again Daniel, America is its people, when Obama said he wants to fundamentally transform America, he means you!

How do you want him to fundamentally transform you and liberal?

Think about the term fundamentalism and what it's linked with!

I was wondering what color the sky is where you people are from?

The Stocks are adjusting on the threat of pulling the stimulus. All of you were against the stimulus and said it did not work. Now that they are going to stop it and the markets are adjusting proves that it worked. So now your for it? Which is it?

Just proves that you all are just right-wing, indoctrinated Faux kool-aid drinkers that are not interested in reality.

make no mistake, obammy has angered every major economy and developed country on the planet. he has completely destroyed, through history breaking spending and debt, not only our currency, but almost every currency on the planet that has dollars in reserve to back their individual currencies. under obammy, when he finally drives the last nail into our currency, the other currencies are going down with it. very few currencies will make it.

obama is big mega corporation CEOs, wall street banks, and the central banks little puppet. they have used him to sell you right out of your future.

ok. the japanese bond market is getting whacked andnow china and theirbanks are teetering. benchmark interest rates have shot up in China like a bottle rocket. thats coming here.

if you remeber 2008......same exact thinbg is happening now. we are going to relive that allover again. this time however its not going to stop. obammy has crushed us completely with debt. he solved nothing while spending insane amounts of money to create the illusion he has. he's ruined this country financially. it is now playing out....it must.

your congresss is not the power in this failing country anymore. they sold us out long ago. while doing so, they have allowed the FED to become the biggest buyers of our debt so obammy could keep spending.

soon, we are going to have to pay up to the central bank who controls our money. very shortly, the FED is going to demand USA pension funds to acquire USA debt. your congress will have no choice.

At the core of Obama's plan are new controls on new and existing power plants that emit carbon dioxide

Plants need carbon dioxide for photosynthesis! Humans emit carbon dioxide! Shall he start regulating how much people emit!
