EPA Receives 1.6MM Comments on Clean Power Plan

Posted December 2, 2014 at 9:19am

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that “it would take 71 Environmental Protection Agency employees spending all their workdays from now until June to read all the comments submitted to the agency’s Clean Power Plan thus far, assuming a modest 5-minute limit per comment.”  

“For some, five seconds will do: “Don’t [expletive deleted] this up, [expletive deleted],” was the concise directive of one commenter.”  

“Other comments may require a kick-back of the old recliner. The 89-page “risk analysis” from the Electric Power Research Institute, which explains why EPA’s calculations of the benefits of its rule are incorrect and exaggerated, isn’t exactly a quick read.”
