Annual Direct Cost of Obama’s “Climate” Power Grab


Via the Institute for 21st Century Energy, here’s an estimate of how hard Obama’s phony bid to command the very weather through bureaucratic regulation will hit us each year in increased electricity costs (click for full size):

I’m guessing Obama won’t be too broken up that the South gets hit particularly hard.

Of course, increasing energy costs drives up the price of literally all goods and services, in addition to destroying jobs, so this only scratches the surface. What we are witnessing is the deliberate lowering of the American standard of living out of ideologically motivated malice by executive fiat.

The highest price of all won’t come in terms of dollars, but will be paid in something more precious still: liberty. Obama and other extremists in the government tried to impose this regulation through legislative means but failed. So Congress was shoved aside; the rules are to be imposed by unelected and unaccountable EPA bureaucrats. The division of powers established by the Constitution is collapsing because Congress evidently does not have the character to defend its domain from usurpation by the executive branch.
