    EPA proposes stricter standards for soot pollution | US National Headlines | Comcast

    Risking an election-year backlash from Republicans, the Obama administration is proposing new air quality standards to lower the amount of soot that can be released into the air.

    The move, to be announced Friday, is likely to win support from environmental groups and public health advocates but exposes the president to potential criticism from congressional Republicans and industry officials that the rules are overly strict and could hurt economic growth and cause job losses in political swing states such as Ohio and Pennsylvania.

    Perhaps wary of the rule's political risk, the administration had sought to delay the new soot standards until after the November elections. But a federal judge ordered officials to act after 11 states filed a lawsuit seeking a decision this year by the Environmental Protection Agency

    What an idiot, all this crap , yet he cannot keep his ass out of air force one for more than a day at a time ,spewing jet fuel all the country.....:cuckoo:

    I wonder, if we export all our production to Mexico, will all these wonderful, productive young criminals move back there? Although, I doubt Mexico has the same ridiculous production-killing regulations. And soot, etc, does not respect national borders any more than the human detritus that wanders over our borders.

    no worries here........incumbents under 50% never win in the general...........no policy making via fiat after November 6th. None that wont get crushed after January of next year anyway..........


    Liberals.......burying the American dream one regulation at a time......but after November, the shit is going to be mothballed for two generations.

    Maybe if Obama'd shut his piehole once in a while, maybe there wouldn't be so much soot in the air.

    He pollutes the air when he talks more then any coal plant in America.

    Gotta love these 'Conservatives'. Always the first to rise in defense of pollution.
