With the Senate cap-and-trade bill on hold, President Obama is not taking no for an answer.
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Obama promised to pursue an energy policy that would “address all facets of our overreliance on fossil fuels.”
“We may end up having to do it in chunks, as opposed to some sort of comprehensive omnibus legislation,” he added. “But we’re going to stay on this because it is good for our economy, it’s good for our national security, and, ultimately, it’s good for our environment.”
Meanwhile, Obama’s EPA has a full court press against fossil fuels.
A report by the Senate Environment and Public Works’ minority staff, “EPA’s Anti-Industrial Policy: Threatening Jobs and America’s Manufacturing Base,” – found a proposed rule, known as “Boiler MACT,” could cost nearly 800,000 jobs.
