Steve Milloy on the EPA

EPA Announces End of Coal: Carbon Pollution Standard for New Power Plants
EPA is proposing to take common-sense steps under the Clean Air Act to limit carbon pollution from new power plants. EPA’s proposed standard reflects the ongoing trend in the power sector to build cleaner plants that take advantage of American-made technologies. The agency’s proposal, which does not apply to plants currently operating or new permitted plants that begin construction over the next 12 months, is flexible and would help minimize carbon pollution through the deployment of the same types of modern technologies and steps that power companies are already taking to build the next generation of power plants. EPA’s proposal would ensure that this progress toward a cleaner, safer and more modern power sector continues.

Rahn: No more GOP whining about overregulation
“Wake up, congressional Republicans… You have the power to stop it and many other outrages.”

William Yeatman: Good Guys Win Big Battle in EPA’s War on Appalachian Coal Production
Last week, property-rights advocates were ecstatic with the Supreme Court’s ruling in Sackett v EPA that citizens subject to EPA Clean Water Act “compliance orders” can have their day in court.

EPA IG to investigate EPA air science advisers
Sen. Jim Inhofe made the request in August 2011. Steve Milloy’s March 2012 Washington Times op-ed made the IG act.

My Take – Please read the comments by Arthur A. Elkins, Jr., Inspector General. I think you find this interesting. One thing is for sure; time has shown that a great many people in positions of responsibility read Milloy’s Junkscience.com. If Milloy was an “erstwhile” scientist, as one blogger says, no one would be reading him.

Boston Herald: EPA gets comeuppance
“The Idaho case is not the only instance of EPA power-grabbing that needs correction, something Congress too rarely provides.”

Knight: Taming the EPA Monster
A worthy read even if the EPA administrator is named “Lisa” not “Janet” Jackson.

IBD: EPA’s Heavy Hand Seen In Gas Crisis
Fearing gas price spikes on the East Coast this summer, Washington pols are trying to talk refiners out of closing unprofitable plants. It’s the EPA they ought to hector.

EPA regulations eliminate more than 1,850 jobs
EPA’s Gina McCarthy once predicted that the MATS rule would generate 8,000 to 46,000 jobs. Rather than undertake expensive retrofits, more than two dozen plants simply closed.”

Boxer: Premature deaths from air pollution are ‘documented’
But Sen. Sessions cites the Junkman in questioning that assertion.

EPA’s Jackson to Boxer: Air pollution link with asthma hospitalizations, premature death ‘not speculative’
From today’s Senate EPW hearing on the EPA budget. JunkScience will soon blow these claims out of the water (again).

Greens see politics in EPA rule delays
No! Really? Politicians are more reluctant to stick voters with big costs when there can be electoral consequences… Go figure!
