Obama takes on coal with first-ever carbon limits

WASHINGTON (AP) - Linking global warming to public health, disease and extreme weather, the Obama administration pressed ahead today with tough requirements to limit carbon pollution from new power plants, despite protests from industry and from Republicans that it would mean a dim future for coal. The proposal, which sets the first national limits on heat-trapping pollution from future power plants, would help reshape where Americans get electricity, moving from a coal-dependent past into a future fired by cleaner sources of energy. It’s also a key step in President Barack Obama’s global warming plans, because it would help end what he called “the limitless dumping of carbon pollution” from power plants.

"Obama Continues Dream Of Destroying U.S. Economy By Castrating Electricity Suppliers" would be a more apt headline.

It looks like those in the cities who overwhelmingly voted for Obama are going to get the worst beating. Twelve hours per day blackouts may be the norm along with a doubling of electric rates.. Can you say four more years? Oops, this is his last term but the damage will live on.
