Where were you all when Obama appointed Monsanto VP Michael Taylor to head the FDA?
Big Coal powers 33% of the country. Making coal power more expensive to produce is not the way to push for renewables. The Clean Power Plan is a cap and trade plan, that simply makes producing energy more expensive.
Funny that you place so much faith in the EPA, and whomever is appointed to run it. The EPA has a pathetic record as a regulatory agency, and will likely continue that record. Look at what they accomplished in Colorado with the Gold King Spill (which they caused in the first place).
Government is the poorest innovator our civilization has ever known. If you want viable renewable energy, then the absolute best thing the government can do is get out of the way.
