Stunning admission: Former Obama Energy Chief slams EPA climate regs

mcconnellWashington DC — Former Obama Department of Energy Assistant Secretary Charles McConnell eviscerated the President’s proposed EPA Clean Power Plan regulation to fight global warming in testimony before Congress.

McConnell’s full testimony here:

Former Assistant Secretary: “The Clean Power Plan (CPP) has been falsely sold as impactful environmental regulation when it is really an attempt by our primary federal environmental regulator to take over state and federal regulation of energy.”

“What is also clear, scientifically and technically, is that EPA’s plan will not significantly impact global emissions.”

“Consider that all of the U.S. annual emissions in 2025 will be offset by three weeks of Chinese emissions. Three weeks. So it is dramatically uneventful. Is this impactful climate regulation? I think not.”

    Better late than never . At least when McConnell ‘s great grandchildren read history
    they can be proud of the fact that their Great
    Grandpa wasn’t cowered into silence by witch hunter AG’s and scary global warming promoters .

    He may have mentioned a bit more warming would be overall beneficial but let’s not stand on the facts .

    The USA needs to chose energy policy
    options that is protective of the environment and not eco-evangelistic
    to the detriment of the countries standard of living . Poor people have far bigger priorities than possibly changing the world’s temperature by a fraction of a degree …. maybe . Warming is good anyways … less fossil fuel demand and better forests and plants . Would the Ecovanglists prefer a cooling world . After all climate changes as any 3rd grade student has figured out .
