The draft rule mandated the use of so-called carbon capture and storage, a technology that would inject carbon dioxide underground but which has so far proved to be little more than a white elephant experiment. To mandate this technology, the law required the EPA to prove it was “adequately demonstrated” and “commercially available.”
EPA tried to fake the science, claiming that they'd met both of the above legal requirements. Now it's clear that they did not. That's right up there with their efforts to fine refineries for not using celluslosic biofools in their fuel mixes - even though that "fuel" has never been available. This is the second time in the last few years that they've been tripped up, and it's become obvious that the out-of-control agency is pursuing an ideological/religious agenda.
President Nixon had good intentions when he created the EPA, but it has morphed into something far beyond his vision. It's time to dismantle the agency.
