Obama EPA kills power plant, 3,900 jobs in Texas

Chase Power, the parent company behind the $3 billion Las Brisas coal power plant in Corpus Christi, Texas, announced yesterday that it was cancelling the project.

“Chase Power … has opted to suspend efforts to further permit the facility and is seeking alternative investors as part of a plan of dissolution for the parent company,” Chase CEO Dave Freysinger told the Corpus Christi Caller-Times.

Freysinger made it very clear who was responsible for the projects death. “The (Las Brisas Energy Center) is a victim of EPA’s concerted effort to stifle solid-fuel energy facilities in the U.S., including EPA’s carbon-permitting requirements and EPA’s New Source Performance Standards for new power plants,” he said.

  1. While it might be the decision of We The People one day to kill all coal power, I am sickened by the arrogance of the "few" who believe they are our keepers and have decided for us that that day is today. They "don't need no stinkin' Legislative Branch" to decide the laws of the land. They have an Executive Branch giving them all the top cover they need. One day We the People, who became We the Sheeple the day we voted to elect this mess, will awaken to what we have sown. Oh happy days!

    This is not surprise to anyone who has studies obama and his pledge prior to the 2008 election that he
    would break the power producers and drive them out of business by any means necessary. His goa
    as he stated was to close down Coal, Oil and Nuclear power plants. He stated he would use the EPA
    as that tool. With his first term we saw the beginning as he attacked the COAL industry with everything
    the EPA and his tools Lisa had to offer.

    The managed to close over 200 plus Coal fired electric power producers. Now that he has a second term the attack will be stepped up and continue. In his address at his crowning for a second term he pledged to further attack America and our ability to produce clean cheap power for our nation. Instead he say he will go a different direction for "clean energy sources", that to produce the power we need at affordable prices. This will cause the cost of electricity to go up and with the loss of capably we can expect many outages in the coming years as we lose more and more plants. Wind, Solar and other questionable methods will not be able to keep up with the demand.
    By the way I also understand that 3 months afte the storm there is still a large portion of the NY area that
    does not have power, electrictiy or water for the residents. So much for the FEMA red tape beign cut.

  4. ENOUGH with these crazy loony people ! This is pure madness what these radical Marxist are doing to our country !! Anyone employed in manufacturing should be extremely worried about keeping their jobs , as the cost of power goes up , combined with more crazy regulations , manufacturing a heavy user of power , will have a hard time competing in the world. Damn all the fools who voted this demon dog into office for four more years and shame on those who didn't even bother to vote !!! Short of a Revolution, there may be no saving America. PEOPLE must educate themselves on COMMON CORE CURRICULUM being implemented in 46 states . This is a globalization indoctrination program for our kids of all ages , in every school in the states !

      So right, Julie. The Common Core Curriculum has already been shown to dumb down our kids so that they are at MiNIMUM 2 grade levels of knowledge behind the already declining stats. Parents need to scream like bloody murder to their school boards and state legislators. Google Michele Malkin's series of articles entitled "Rotten to the Core." They will make your blood curdle!
