Air quality has improved dramatically in America since 1980.


According to the EPA nitrogen dioxide emissions are down 40%, sulfur dioxide dropped by 56%, and lead emissions by a whopping 96%. And, these improvements happened while the population grew by 22% and energy consumption jumped 19%.


This would seem ample reason for the government to leave well enough alone, but that's not the case for the current Administration. The Obama EPA is preparing to implement two major new air quality regulations that will cost consumers hundreds of billions of dollars more in their energy bills and destroy great numbers of American jobs.

  • Readers might notice that not one single square inch of American soil made the lists. And yet, the big O insists on screwing American businesses and households. Just like he promised.

    How's that Hope and Change (TM) working for you now?

    PS: Isn't it interesting that it is the communist/socialist type governments that screw the sh.t out of their environment while free-market, capitalist economies make a habit of preserving and conserving their resources?

  • What pisses me off the most is liberals claim the high moral ground in support of the little guy and yet their ideas and laws are killing the "little guy".

    $25 light bulbs full of mercury, 200% increase in food prices, oil at an all time high and headed higher, sky rocketing energy cost due to outrageous EPA rules that do nothing, and the list goes on.

  • The EPA is a blessing in the long term. The problems caused by destorying the environment and laws, leads to more problems for citizens of America and the World. Sorry, when it comes ot jobs and EPA, I'll stick to the EPA each time. HAve you guys taken a look at CHina and India? They are going to have massive issues with regard to pollution and health, and if we focus on such tech we will be in a great position to milk and reap the awards.

      Agreed. I heard of all the Obama green jobs and green sector but I don;t think enough is being done. We need to drill in America safely (meaning help and aid in the exploration, not choking it to death) but more importantly we need to focus on a future energy source that will make us the next Saudi Arabia. If we can convert the American public to drive in small cars with electric, solar, hybrid, hyrogen, etc. if can change the world's independence on Mid East Cartel and change geo More..

  • The ultimate goal is to cripple U.S. energy businesses and then control them through a viscous regulatory structure that makes them dependent on democrat politicians. It has nothing to do with "clean" energy or phoney "global warming." It is about political control.
    Communism sucks.
