Heritage Panel Addresses EPA’s Unprecedented Climate Change Regulations

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/globalwarmingorg/~3/mlQeZzZrpkk/

Yesterday I participated on a Heritage Foundation panel on ‘Extremism at the EPA: A Discussion on Federal Overreach, Regulation Costs, and Climate Realities.’ Fellow panelists were Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Penn.) and Heritage’s David Kreutzer. The event was hosted by Heritage Fellow Nicolas Loris. I’ve reposted the video below.
Rep. Kelly started things off with a rousing speech in defense of affordable energy. Kreutzer then debunked the so-called “social cost of carbon,” the dubious statistic on which EPA relies in order to justify its climate regulations. Finally, I discussed the illegitimacy of EPA’s recently proposed Clean Air Act regulations for greenhouse gases from existing power plants, known as the Clean Power Plan. Kreutzer starts at the 44th minute; I start at the 58th minute. Over at the Daily Signal, Natalie Johnson wrote a story on the panel.
