Why is Obama’s EPA Forcing Power Plants to Close When Unemployment is So High?

National Center Senior Fellow and Free Enterprise Project Director Tom Borelli, Ph.D, explains how new EPA coal regulations inevitably will hurt job creation, shrink our electricity supply and raise energy prices on the August 14, 2011 edition of Fox’s “America’s News Headquarters” with host Eric Shawn.

Tom says, “the last thing our economy needs is more people on the unemployment line,” yet, thanks to the new EPA regulations on coal, some coal-fired plants already have closed.
