35,000 Jobs Lost + Business Loss + 20% Rate Hike Across USA

I stand in agreement with Rep. Tom Graves, GA  who said; “To the promoters of more government, bigger government…we must stand together and say, ‘no.’ When there are those that say free markets don’t work or capitalism is false, we must stand together as entrepreneurs and push ahead.”

Who wants more Government, more regulations, and increased taxes?  I say Tom Fanning of Southern Company does when he voluntarily welcomes Cap n Trade into Mississippi.  Yes,  Kemper County IGCC experiment is the bridge for America to enter Cap n Trade.  Southern Company is cooperating to set the standards for all the other coal plants in America.  Any expression of reluctance at any meeting is only lip service.  You can’t be all for something and all against it at the same time.  Does he believe Mississippians are ignorant fools?

Tom Fanning, CEO of Southern Company is quoted saying the following: May 20, 2011

In the Southeast alone, Fanning said, the new regulation could eliminate up to 35,000 jobs. The cost to businesses, he said, was likely to be much higher than the  EPA’s estimate of a $10.9 billion a year.

“And when we consider adding new environmental control equipment or replacing it with other forms of generation, we’re looking at potential price increases across the United States of maybe 20 percent.”

About Mississippi Coal
Welcome! It is an honor to have a moment of your day. We are in favor of all forms of energy. We care about the future of this great Nation and seek to expose the corruption behind the Kemper County CO2 capturing experimental Lignite coal Demonstration unit. Our Chief complaint is that the rate payers pay for it in their electric bills. The CO2 capturing does not produce electricity so therefore serves no purpose for the ratepayers. It is a money scam for Mississippi power and Southern Company. Mississippi is first in following the (United Nation's Agenda 21) Kyoto Protocols for the regulation of carbon dioxide, a gas we breathe out of our lungs, by forcing the people to pay for it through energy bills and taxes. Through the process of investigating the Kemper County Coal Plant issue, we feel criminal acts have been committed and that soon FCC violations will be added to the offenses. People are being lied to, deceived, or misled and therefore are fully cooperating with this Lignite experiment. "This blog or any content may contain copyrighted material.
