That's OK! For every coal plant we shutdown China is building TWO ! This is NOT about CO2 emissions but rather the complete & deliberate crippling of the US industrial economy. Like Germany who is wayyy ahead of us don't you think it's about time we stopped waiting for SOMEBODY else to investigate and invest in RENEWABLES ?

For less than one-third the price of a shiny new gas-guzzling mid-size SUV every home in America can be OFF-GRID and totally power independant !

You probably haven't heard this story -- it's been overshadowed by the media's ubiquitous coverage of the Supreme Court health care case.
 
But while every back was turned, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) quietly released new regulations that could cripple, or possibly even kill, many U.S. coal companies.

On March 27, the EPA unveiled a stringent proposal to limit any new power plant to a maximum emission of 1,000 pounds of carbon dioxide (CO2) per megawatt of electricity produced. The average coal-fired plant currently operates well above that threshold, releasing 1,768 pounds of CO2 per megawatt.
 
As I've told...
