We’re about to coin a new phrase that perfectly captures the deliberately destructive tool of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the hands of Barack Obama and the socialist Left. We’ll call it the “psychosis of socialism.”
The psychosis of socialism is on display as the final rule of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan (CPP) has been set into motion. It mandates by 2030 a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions — the same gas you exhale upon healthy respiration — 32% lower than levels of 2005. The CPP will cost the U.S. economy an estimated $2.5 trillion lost in economic growth, with 66 power plants closed and 125,000 jobs eliminated that generate America’s electricity. That’s on top of 200 plants already forced into retirement.
To achieve this Leftist government-sanctioned objective, Obama has employed the power and bureaucracy of a radicalized and weaponized EPA coupled with an almost unseen but very effective Sierra Club activist group, Beyond Coal, which is funded by former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg.
