The Obama EPA has made it their especial mission to bring about the demise of the coal industry post-haste, and last year, they announced that they were getting to work writing the first-ever regulations to limit greenhouse gas emissions from new power plants — even though the industry protested that such rules would “make it impossible to build any new coal-fueled power plants and could cause the premature closure of many more coal-fueled power plants operating today” (I mean, that’s pretty much the whole point here).

The EPA was all excited about pushing the new rules out by April, and radical environmentalist groups couldn’t have been more pleased with the endeavor — but most unusually, it sounds like the eco-zealots at the EPA may have gotten ahead of themselves yet again.
