Extremism at the EPA: A Discussion on Federal Overreach, Regulation Costs, and Climate Realities

On June 2, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed the next step in its climate change agenda with a draft rule that would cap carbon dioxide emissions and greenhouse gases from existing power plants. In doing so, the EPA used questionable science, ignored climate realities, and discounted major investments around the world to build power plants. This rule will significantly reduce the use of coal as an efficient and inexpensive source of reliable power in America, if the EPA is allowed to succeed in finalizing it in addition to other climate change regulations already in the books or on the way. The consequences will be lost jobs and higher energy costs for American families and businesses with no meaningful reduction in global emissions or temperatures.

During the final week of July, the EPA will be holding its public hearings on the proposed rule in three different states throughout the nation, as well as the District of Columbia. At the beginning of this crucial week, join us as we discuss climate realities and fallacies, the EPA’s war on coal, and efforts to stop the EPA’s unchecked climate change regulation. Leading the discussion will be a special address by Representative Mike Kelly of Pennsylvania’s 3rd District, whose successful fight against federal overreach in the private sector led him to Washington and motivates his ongoing effort to stop such regulatory extremism.
