Climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer: EPA Admits to Senate that CO2 Regs Not About Pollution Control but an ‘investment opportunity’


EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy had this priceless quote regarding the EPA’s proposed carbon dioxide regulations (italics added):

“And the great thing about this proposal is it really is an investment opportunity. This is not about pollution control. It’s about increased efficiency at our plants…It’s about investments in renewables and clean energy. It’s about investments in people’s ability to lower their electricity bills by getting good, clean, efficient appliances, homes, rental units.”

Spencer: ‘Mmm hmmm. Kind of like investment in Solyndra? Or Tesla?’
