Modern Energy Coalition Condemns Trump Pimping for Coal, Nuclear Electric Power

❝ A diverse group of energy industry associations including energy efficiency and storage, natural gas, oil, solar and wind issued (a) statement condemning the Administration’s draft plan to bail out coal and nuclear plants across the country.

Lisa Jacobson, Business Council for Sustainable Energy President (BCSE):

❝ “Resilience and reliability issues are paramount to the electric sector. The portfolio of currently available clean energy technologies and services in the energy efficiency, natural gas and renewable energy sectors – working with other technologies and services – is meeting the needs of the grid affordably and reliably today and can meet the needs of an evolving electric grid into the future. The actions under consideration would impose unnecessary costs on consumers and businesses through increased electricity bills.”

John Hughes, Electricity Consumers Resources Council President and CEO:

❝ “Any action taken by the Department of Energy today to use 202(c) and DPA to prop up uneconomic coal and nuclear plants is unnecessary, anticompetitive and would increase the price of electricity to businesses and consumers, resulting in a substantial loss of U.S. manufacturing capacity jobs.”

Shit-for-brains Trump demonstrates no more dedicated policy than working for corrupt and out-of-date industries that promise to pay him the most money, promise the most votes. Not that he’s anymore adept at figuring out who is lying to him – than his peers on the Right are at separating out Trump’s own lies from fact.

Take the time to read through all the groups condemning this butt-kissing stupidity.
