I don’t think Gina McCarthy had through this through. McCarthy to the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee: “And the great thing about this proposal is it really is an investment opportunity. This is not about pollution control. It’s about increased efficiency at our plants…It’s about investments in renewables and clean energy. It’s about investments in people’s ability to lower their electricity bills by getting good, clean, efficient appliances, homes, rental units,” “This is an investment strategy that will really not just reduce carbon pollution but will position the United States to continue to grow economically in every state, based on their own design,” McCarthy added. She is discussing something called the Clean Power Plan. Mark this day. She goes on to find the perpetual motion machine of economics: Sir, what I know about this rule is that I know it will leave the United States in 2030 with a more efficient and cleaner energy supply system — and more jobs in clean energy, which are the jobs of the future,” McCarthy responded. The EPA doesn’t just have a landline to God. They are God. They can use less energy to generate more wealth, more employment, and global peace. […]Rating: 8.6/10 (14 votes cast)
