Barack Obama is not about to be a “Lame Duck” President if he can help it. He promised to bring about the fundamental transformation of America and to force American energy costs to skyrocket. He has done a pretty good job of meeting his goals so far, but he is not done with us yet.
AZ Leader at Inform the Pundits has an excellent post up on how President Obama and his EPA stormtroopers plan to force electricity costs in America to skyrocket. In that post, he provides a link to the President’s “Climate Action Plan“ and a link to new EPA regulations proposed on Friday. Let’s take a look.
President Obama’s Climate Action Plan
The preamble is taken from President Obama’s 2013 Inaugural Address (Emphasis added):
“We, the people, still believe that our obligations as Americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity. We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms.
The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But America cannot resist this transition, we must lead it. We cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries, we must claim its promise. That’s how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure — our forests and waterways, our croplands and snow-capped peaks. That is how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care by God. That’s what will lend meaning to the creed our fathers once declared.”
— President Obama, Second Inaugural Address, January 2013
Please note the bits I put in bold. The “overwhelming judgement of science” is a scam. Check out this Inform the Pundit article. And, look at this quote from another Inform the Pundit article:
Claims of increased “extreme weather” events are being disproved by scientists. Not only are U.S. hurricanes in decline, but so are tornadoes, droughts, and floods.
That article is full true information backed up by good sources. But the truth never stopped Barack Obama before and it won’t stop him now. So, let’s see what he and his EPA stormtroopers have in store for us. Oh, and that “sustainable energy sources” sounds a lot like Agenda 21, doesn’t it?
New Proposed EPA Regulations
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today proposed Clean Air Act standards to cut carbon pollution from new power plants in order to combat climate change and improve public health. In addition, EPA has initiated broad-based outreach and direct engagement with state, tribal, and local governments, industry and labor leaders, non-profits, and others to establish carbon pollution standards for existing power plants and build on state efforts to move toward a cleaner power sector.
Today’s proposal achieves the first milestone outlined in President Obama’s June 25 Memorandum to EPA on “Power Sector Carbon Pollution Standards,” a major part of the President’s Climate Action Plan.
“Climate change is one of the most significant public health challenges of our time. By taking commonsense action to limit carbon pollution from new power plants, we can slow the effects of climate change and fulfill our obligation to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our children,” EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said. “These standards will also spark the innovation we need to build the next generation of power plants, helping grow a more sustainable clean energy economy.”
Under today’s proposal, new large natural gas-fired turbines would need to meet a limit of 1,000 pounds of CO2 per megawatt-hour, while new small natural gas-fired turbines would need to meet a limit of 1,100 pounds of CO2 per megawatt-hour. New coal-fired units would need to meet a limit of 1,100 pounds of CO2 per megawatt-hour, and would have the option to meet a somewhat tighter limit if they choose to average emissions over multiple years, giving those units additional operational flexibility.
There is that Agenda 21 one line again :”sustainable clean energy economy.” For a clear and simple explanation of what these new EPA regulations will mean to you, if they are not stopped, please read the first Inform the Pundits link at the top of the page. Among other things, you will learn there is no measurable benefit to the enormous cost that will be incurred. AZ sums it up very nicely in his conclusions:
Obama energy policy is a clear and present danger to middle class Americans.
Obama policies will leave Americans poorer. It hurts the general economy with higher energy costs while simultaneously causing an increase in CO2!!!
And this idiot was reelected because people thought he would be better for the middle class. They couldn’t have been more wrong!
In the opinion of your humble observer of the asylum we all have to live in, this broadside on America’s middle class has nothing to do with protecting the planet or the faux issue of climate change. Instead, it has everything to do with Obama’s original goal to fundamentally transform America, to use high cost of electricity to get Americans out of the suburbs and back into the enter-cities. In other words, this is how Obama intends to implement the United Nation’s diabolical plan called Agenda 21 (see here and here). If you think this is just an old man’s conspiracy theory, you are paying attention.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?

“Must” is a favorite term of Obama. He is a man who likes to impose his views on everybody else although he has never had an idea of his own in his life. Things are deteriorating quickly here at home. The GOP establishment is going to be decimated in the next elections. Maybe the party as a whole.
The Gutless Old Pissants are going to reap what they sowed.
Of course this has nothing to do with climate change, as such. Barack Obama is most interested in making changes to America that he deems necessary. In other words, he despises the use of our natural resources to power our country, so he is making it as hard as possible to access those natural resources. As with so many liberals, it is like a religion to him. He can try to keep it hidden, but sooner or later, the truth will come out. That’s what we are seeing in his second term.
When it all comes down around their ears, they will still try to blame somebody else. Bush?
You include a good point that is easily missed. This applies to Nat gas as well, He has one agenda. Transform America into a third world country so we can live like his fellow Muslims live. The only GOPer out there is Cruz and we see what is happening to him, regardless how one feels about his present efforts regarding Obamacare.
I guess Obama would prefer if the US was more like his homeland, Kenya.
The Democrats have always been about the rich. They represent the rich elite not the middle class. And Americans are stupid enough to buy the “party of the people” meme.
I’m guess most of the Republicans are playing the elitist game too, my friend.
What ‘sustainable’ energy has proven itself? Hmmmm…..? Any? Bueller….Bueller…?
Obama’s record for wasting….I mean investing our money in green erergy project has been a total failure. He has zero to show for all of our money he wasted….I mean invested.
Thanks for stopping by and joining conversation, Laura.
Your comment made me laugh, CoF.
Thank you for the warm welcome.
Almost looks like it’s azleader day at the Asylum
(some folks think I should be placed permanently in an asylum)
There is an amazing video about the cost of fighting climate change, which is what Obama is supposed trying to do bass-ackwards through EPA regulations.
The video conclusive proves that it is 50 times more costly to fight climate change the IPCC’s (and Obama’s) way than to adapt to it as it occurs.
It is done by Australian Topher Field and is highly entertaining, yet based on rock solid numbers accepted by the IPCC and mainstream science:
Whether you are an IPCC skeptic or an AGW warmist… everyone should see this video.
I’d seen this video before; but thanks for sharing with the rest of our readers. Truth will set us free…..if the truth ever sees the light of day.
You are so very, very right.
I’ve been boning up on the IRS targeting scandal and find that almost none of it is seeing the light of day. It is as if the liberal world got together and decided to bury the story no matter what. It is very disturbing.
There is no doubt this is not being done to help the middle class and in fact it will hurt the middle class but Obama does not care because this is an integral part of his globalist agenda. Agenda 21 and global redistribution of wealth is what this is all about and I hope the people who voted for Obama the second time around realize they signed their own death certificate.
As a friend said today, we will soon be faced with a choice between tyranny or anarchy. Not much of a choice, is it?
AND THANKS to Hussein. the terrorists are living amongst us now..Good Lord…
He is a big fan of CAIR, isn’t he?
