The Administration is taking a kind of unusual approach to the Climate Change issue and CO2 emissions, and I happen to think it is a good one. It is what I have been saying all along, that CO2 does NOT seem to be the driver of Climate Change, but cutting it is not a BAD thing. Over the last 20 years, we have done exactly that, and we don't intend to change horses mid stream now. But the question is, what economically produced power can we rely on for the next 100 years? That is what the EPA is trying to deduce now.
"Renewables" are the darling of the left with the enormous subsidies that take money from real people and push it to the elites, Like King Angus and his cronies. Real reliable and inexpensive power comes from clean coal, gas, hydro and nuclear plants that can be built for a fraction of the price of wind and solar and provide base load power that the grid is capable of handling. Renewables are short sighted, expensive, feckless, environmentally unfriendly, and a waste of time we could be spending on real research and development. Some benefit from solar panels on individual houses might be good for the individuals that have them, but as far as being hooked into the grid they are a problem. For those that can afford them, let em' at it. Just don't make it a government subsidized project. Wind in general is worthless. Again, if someone is in need of one, let him do it, on his own, no subsidies.
I think the position taken by the new administration is the right one and I really don't see a problem.
