The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed its new rule for regulating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for newly constructed power plants. If Congress is serious about job creation and economic growth, it should drive back the regulation of GHGs. The massive regulatory costs will either be passed on to American families and businesses or offset by cuts in operations and investment—or both. Whatever the result, it will be economically injurious with futile results in impacting climate change. Congress can contain the damage by limiting either the EPA’s authority or its budget to implement the regulations.
