EPA’s Proposed Carbon “Pollution” Standard for New Power PlantsAlan Carlin | June 11, 2012
On May 23 I made a presentation on EPA’s proposed carbon “pollution” standard for new power plants at the Heartland Institute’s Seventh International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC7) in Chicago.
My emphasis in the presentation was on my expectations as to what the Obama Administration would be likely to do concerning this and other proposed EPA regulations after the November, 2012 election. My point was that it appears likely that the Administration has been holding back on important aspects of the large range of expensive EPA regulations that it has proposed or is working on until after the election but can be expected to move rapidly afterwards to implement as many as possible, whether they win or lose the election.
