A memo circulated among radical environmentalists and recently leaked to the public provides further evidence that the current administration’s executive orders and unilateral mandates to shut down the coal industry are not designed for the working man, or for Kentucky families.
The memo, which advises supporters on what language to use when pushing for these unprecedented policies, recommends discussing “modernizing and retooling power plants” but not to take credit for “net job increases.”
Hmmm….so it seems the obvious fact that using executive orders and draconian regulations to shut down entire industries – including Kentucky’s energy sector – won’t result in net job increases (what a surprise) is actually not lost on the current administration!
The memo goes on to advise greenies to avoid debating “the increase in electricity rates” and to “Instead pivot to health & clean air message.” Apparently, the same greenies also believe that the best way to dupe the general public into supporting Obama’s EPA is by using language such as “cutting carbon pollution from power plants” instead of “regulations to control greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.”
The fact that those pushing most strongly to shut down our energy sector realize – as shown through the leaked memo – that jobs will be lost and electricity rates will rise as a result should outrage Kentuckians.
