Obama EPA kills power plant, 3,900 jobs in Texas

by Conn Carroll, Washington Examiner

Chase Power, the parent company behind the $3 billion Las Brisas coal power plant in Corpus Christi, Texas, announced yesterday that it was cancelling the project.

“Chase Power … has opted to suspend efforts to further permit the facility and is seeking alternative investors as part of a plan of dissolution for the parent company,” Chase CEO Dave Freysinger told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.

Freysinger made it very clear who was responsible for the projects death.“The (Las Brisas Energy Center) is a victim of EPA’s concerted effort to stifle solid-fuel energy facilities in the U.S., including EPA’s carbon-permitting requirements and EPA’s New Source Performance Standards for new power plants,” he said.

The Las Brisas power plant had been part of a larger Las Brisas Energy Center project planned for Corpus Christi’s Inner Harbor. Economists had projected that in the first 5 years of construction and operation the project would create as 1,300 direct and 2,600 indirect jobs. Now none of those jobs will exist.

“These costly rules exceeded the bounds of EPA authority, incur tremendous costs, and produce no real benefits related to climate change,” Freysinger commented.

SOB! And it kills the housing market in that area and all the small businesses those employees support. No hope for the Keystone Pipeline or lower energy costs under this administration.

Obama does not want a stronger Texas, there is the risk it may go independent.

If Texas did, it would be one of the leading economies, and would be even stronger after evicting the illegals and welfare recipients.

Barack Obama: "Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket." (January 2008)



What part of what obama said he was going to do is hard to understand.......
He might not get "cap and trade" through the house but here is how he is implementing it....

http://lmgtfy.com/...

Get Ready.....and here is why...

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/energy/64911...

http://www.carbonoffsetsdaily.com/news-channe...

etc. etc.....

Money and power pure and simple.......

The unintended, or depending on how you look at it the intended result will be the destruction of the economy of the United States.

Here is an interesting fact about al gore......

"Al Gore’s commitment to promoting green energy has brought him widespread acclaim, a Nobel Prize and even an Oscar. It’s also brought him more than a pretty penny.

The author of An Inconvenient Truth has swelled his net worth to about $100 million, largely due to his investments in green energy, after being worth less than $2 million during his time as Vice President, The Washington Post reports."

The implementation of cap and trade and making carbon credits a commodity WILL make al gore a billionaire.

The current issue of Time magazine has a piece (“From Chads to Riches”) on Al Gore and his forthcoming book, which contains this interesting nugget:

"Gore has built his net worth from roughly $2 million in 2000, when he reluctantly entered the private sector, to some $300 million, according to the scorekeepers at Forbes. By their measure, he is now richer than the renowned supercapitalist Mitt Romney."

And now for a more interesting read you might want to know about al gore, The Chicago Climate Exchange and the ties to obama...

http://pjmedia.com/blog/if-al-gores-chicago-c...

The Chicago Climate Exchange was established for the sole purpose of marketing carbon offset credits...

Although the trading in carbon emissions credits was voluntary, the CCX was intended to be the hub of the mandatory carbon trading established by a cap-and-trade law, like the Waxman-Markey scheme passed by the House in June 2009.
At its founding in November 2000, it was estimated that the size of CCX’s carbon trading market could reach $500 billion. That estimate ballooned over the years to $10 trillion.

"The CCX seemed to have a lock on success. Not only was a young Barack Obama a board member of the Joyce Foundation that funded the fledgling CCX, but over the years it attracted such big name climate investors as Goldman Sachs and Al Gore’s Generation Investment Management."
..........

hmmmmmmm and more...

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news...

Legislation to let polluters buy and sell carbon-dioxide emissions like pork bellies is the outgrowth of Richard L. Sandor, founder of the Chicago-based network of people trading pollution permits from Beijing to Brussels known as Climate Exchange. It doesn’t hurt that the six-year-old market got $1.1 million of seed money from the city’s Joyce Foundation, whose board included a little-known state senator named Barack Obama. Now the 44th president is determined to enact America’s first limits on greenhouse gases.

Get Ready......

Let's apply your "logic" from all the other threads to your observation of Gore's wealth.

Gore, a liberal, has made more money in a shorter period of time than Romney, a non-liberal. Therefore, liberals are better capitalist than non-liberals.

Gee. It is kind of fun to "think" the way you people do.

You have a distinct inability to follow any logic.
