Sneaky Cat; That Obama

Essentially, as Marita reports, Obama with all of his latest environmental edicts, remains the sneaky cat he has always been.

Read On:

Greetings!

You know the Obama administration hides unpopular policy by introducing it at times when people are not paying attention—one such time is the Wednesday afternoon just before Thanksgiving. It is my job, our job, to get these important, though hidden, issues out there so people know about them and can respond.

You probably know that within the bundle of thousands of new regulation that the administration released on Thanksgiving eve was new ozone standards. But, like me, you may not know how onerous they are as there has been very little news coverage on the topic. When I did my research, I was shocked at the potential impact of this proposed rule—it hits virtually every energy source and manufacturing.

In Welcome to the O-zone—where economic development is a zero-sum game (attached and pasted-in-below) I explain the rule and lay out the impacts—connecting dots that I have not seen connected elsewhere. This new rule needs to be viewed as being laid on top of all of the other regulations and for its ability to thwart oil and gas development and economic growth through manufacturing.

Commentary by Marita Noon

Executive Director, Energy Makes America Great Inc.

Welcome to the O-zone—where economic development is a zero-sum game

Late in the day on Thanksgiving eve, when no one was paying attention, the Obama administration released its Unified Agenda—a regulatory roadmap of thousands of regulations being finalized in 2015. Within the bundle of more than 3000 regulations is a rule on ozone that President Obama himself, in 2011, “put on ice” in an effort to reduce “regulatory burdens and regulatory uncertainty, particularly as our economy continues to recover.” Regarding the 2011 decision that shocked environmental groups, the New York Times (NYT) recently stated: “At the time, Mr. Obama said the regulation would impose too severe a burden on industry and local governments at a time of economic distress.”

So, why has the rule that the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) calls: “the most expensive ever imposed on industry in America,” come back? First, Obama isn’t facing an election—which, while the White House denied it, most believe to be the reason for the 2011 about-face. More importantly, however, is the fact that following the 2011 decision that struck down the proposed ozone rule, environmental groups sued the Obama administration. The resulting court order required the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to release the proposed rule by December 1, with finalization by October 2015.

Once again, environmental groups—who, on September 21, came out of the closet and revealed that their true intention is system change (“capitalism is the disease, socialism is the cure”)—are in charge of America’s energy, and, therefore, economic policy. They have systematically chipped away America’s sources of economic strength: cost-effective energy. And we’ve let them.

What they are doing is reminiscent of the classic poem, attributed to pastor Martin Niemöller, which is quoted at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

First, they came after coal. It was at a time when natural gas was cheap and touted as the “bridge fuel” to the future. No one much spoke out. Some in the natural gas business even encouraged the war on coal, as it benefitted them. When I first heard that then-Chesapeake Energy CEO Aubrey McLendon gave the Sierra Club $25 million to fight coal (it is reported that the Sierra Club turned down an additional $30 million), I remember yelling at the TV. “You fool!” I shouted. “You will be next!”

Within months, the Sierra Club launched its “Beyond Natural Gas” campaign that claims: “Increasing reliance on natural gas displaces the market for clean energy and harms human health and the environment in places where production occurs.” A headline on the Beyond Natural Gas webpage states that natural gas is: “Dirty, dangerous, and run amok.” Shortly thereafter, McLendon “agreed to retire.”

The oil industry didn’t make much noise about the Sierra Club campaign—after all natural gas prices were low and oil, high. While environmental groups generally oppose all fossil fuels, the oil industry has been hurt the least. Jobs in the oil sector of the energy industry have continued as the lone bright spot in the economy and increased U.S. production has cut our reliance on Middle Eastern crude to the lowest levels in three decades. Even as recently as November 5, President Obama bragged about decreased dependence on imported oil.

While the Obama administration hasn’t been vocally anti-oil, it has not made development easy. The permitting process for a new well on federal lands takes twice as long as it did previously. Environmental groups, with whom Obama is philosophically aligned, have continued to push for tighter regulations on hydraulic fracturing—even an outright ban (which would virtually shut down America’s new energy abundance). The Democrat-controlled New York state has already acquiesced to environmentalists’ demands.

Now, they are coming for oil-and-gas development and manufacturing through the just-announced 626-page ozone regulation, which will require states to dramatically reduce ozone emissions from the current 75 parts per billion (ppb) to a range of 65 to 70ppb—though environmental groups want a 60ppb standard which may be the final rule. While a 5-15ppb reduction doesn’t sound like much, it is important to realize that many areas of the U.S. are already out of compliance—including most of California—with the 75ppb level. The new regulations will mean that, depending on the final rule, 76-96 percent of the country—including some national parks where the natural background levels are 65-67ppb—will be out of compliance.

According to Howard Feldman, the American Petroleum Institute’s director of regulatory and scientific affairs, “earlier EPA analyses acknowledge the technology needed to achieve more stringent standards doesn’t exist.” Likewise, a NAM report, titled “Potential Economic Impacts of a Stricter Ozone Standard,” states that a majority of new reductions would have to come from “unknown controls.”

Ozone is an odorless gas that is not directly emitted into the air but is created by chemical reactions between nitrogen oxides (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOC)—which occur naturally but are also produced from the burning of fossil fuels and are released in the process of drilling for oil and natural gas. For example, even before the new proposed levels were announced, Colorado’s Front Range region is out of compliance with the current rules, “driven largely by emissions from fossil fuel processing.” A report in the Colorado Independent states: “The increase in ozone violations is primarily due to emissions from oil and gas drilling.” Electric utilities and chemical solvents are also sources of NOx and VOC.

“To meet the new standards,” the National Journal says: “states will have to form plans that will limit emissions of ozone-forming pollutants from two major sources: stationary sources such as power plants and factories, and transportation”—which will reduce energy intensive economic activity. The NYT reports: “The ozone rules are expected to force the owners of power plants and factories to install expensive technology to clean pollutants from their smoke stacks”—which will raise costs to families and business. Under the current rule, ozone levels, according to the EPA, have fallen in the U.S. 33 percent since 1980 and 18 percent since 2000.

The American Legislative Exchange Council explains the impact of the new ozone proposal this way: “Virtually every state’s ability to develop industry would be seriously jeopardized because emissions from each new stationary source would have to be ‘offset’ with emissions reductions elsewhere in the nonattainment area. In practice, this means that industrial development becomes a zero-sum game, whereby every new business requires the closure of existing business.”

No wonder NAM’s response is antagonistic: “Manufacturing in the United States is making a comeback,” Jay Timmons, CEO and President, said in a press release. “We’re reducing emissions at the same time, but tightening the current ozone standard to near unachievable levels would serve as a self-inflicted wound to the U.S. economy at the worst possible time. This rule would undermine our work to expand manufacturing in the United States, making it almost impossible to increase operations, create new jobs or keep pace internationally.”

Despite the negative economic impact of the expensive rule—with figures ranging from $19 billion to $270 billion—environmental groups believe Obama will follow through this time because, as National Journal states: “the rule fits with the rest of Obama’s climate change agenda and they’d expect it to move forward even on the tighter end.” The Sierra Club’s Washington representative on smog pollution, Terry McGuire, believes: “The administration is emboldened to do that.”

While environmental groups and the Obama administration maybe feel “emboldened,” more regulation—especially that which “would impose too severe a burden on industry and local governments”—is not what the American people want or need.

“The president said his policies were on the ballot, and the American people spoke up against them,” said incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). “It’s time for more listening, and less job-destroying red tape. Easing the burden already created by EPA regulations will continue to be a priority for me in the new Congress.”

“Republicans,” according to National Journal, “have vowed to target the ozone standard as a part of their early energy agenda.”

Current Minority Leader of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Senator Vitter (R-LA) and incoming Chairman, Senator Inhofe (R-OK) called the rule: “one of the most devastating regulations in a series of over-reaching regulatory actions.” In response to the November 26 announcement, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy promised: “The House will conduct aggressive oversight and use the proper legislative approach to continue to promote cleaning the air we breathe while ensuring our communities are not burdened with unrealistic regulations.”

With the Obama administration willing to sacrifice jobs and economic development for some perceived environmental legacy, it is time for unions to abandon the historic allegiance to the Democrat Party and realize that it is the Republicans who advocate for policies that protect the jobs in construction, manufacturing, mining, and energy—all well-paying positions that are often filled by union members.

It is time for capitalist, free-marketers to speak out.

It is time for trade unionists to speak out.

It is time for families, workers, and businesses to speak out.

It is time for the all of the energy producers—coal, natural gas, and oil—to speak out with one voice.

Because, if we don’t, there will be no one left to speak for us.

This Did Not Happen .. Why Not?

Below, you will see a replication of a document sent to some parents from the school administration of the school their child or children attend.  The document bears the typed name of Tom  Sullivan, the Superintendent of the Moriarty-Edgewood School District (MESD).

The text of the document seems to be an attempt to set the stage for helpful and honest dialogue regarding possible solutions to the finanacial conundrum in which the MESD finds itself.

Sadly, we find from the document there are several promises made which remain unfulfilled. Those unfulfilled promises serve to harm the announced transparency of the MESD Superintendent, and the governance provided by the MESD Board of Education.

Why are the citizens of the MESD left wondering why the words of the document were not carried out?  Was it because of secret instructions to the superintendent by an unknown person or a group of persons?  Or were the promises contained in the words of the attachment purposely ignored due to some mysterious and sinister reason?  Or … was the failure due to an extended lapse of memory on the part of the document’s author?  So many questions — So few answers.

You decide:

Dear Moriarty-Edgewood parents and staff,

As you likely know by now, the District has been facing some serious budget and facility problems which, unfortunately, now require prompt attention. We have lost 2,000 students in the last 12 years- over 40% from our highest enrollment point.

During a series of both staff Advisory Committee and public meetings, we have identified a number of options to address the crisis- virtually all of them requiring school closure(s) and identifying other appropriate, alternative uses for existing District buildings.

Although almost everyone recognizes the need for drastic action, no one wants it be their own campus that is selected. While this may be understandable, it creates its own set of additional problems. I absolutely believe certain decisions have to be made NOW to at least stabilize the District’s finances, while more comprehensive, long term planning can then be undertaken. Problems that were 12 years in the making can’t be totally solved between now and August, 2014; especially those that would require major overhauls to curriculum, staffing patterns, facility design, transportation etc.

The MESD Board of Education has scheduled several more public meetings in the next month- the evenings of Dec. 10, 17 and January 21 (emphasis added) at the very least- at which they will continue to weigh options and listen to the school community.

Please try to understand that whatever the final outcome, it will be driven by the Board’s efforts to do what is necessary for the well being of the District as a whole.

Sincerely, Tom Sullivan

Well, we all now know the MESD Superintendent and the MESD Board of Education did not wait to make the decision to close two schools until or after January 21, 2014; but hurried to make the changes on December 17, 2013.

Given the failure of the superintendent and his and the board’s actions is it any wonder that parents, citizens and officials of the Edgewood community give little to no credence to anything they have done or will do in the future,

Edgewood Chamber: Insty Message, School Closure

     Edgewood Chamber of Commerce
insty message

 
Please make every attempt to attend the
School Board Meeting Tuesday December 17
at 6pm in the Moriarty High School Board Room.
The members of the School Board are considering
how they will fix a badly bleeding budget.
Closing a couple of schools and moving 6th graders to the Middle school are part of the solution.
Our problem is that they are thinking about closing
the ONLY Elementary School in the  Town of Edgewood.  We have been working very hard to attract new business to our area to create better paying jobs and help our general economy.
Do you know what it looks like when the ONE Elementary School in the actual Town of Edgewood is being closed down?
The school that is actually the star in the school district, with high evaluation grades?
If this is something you want to discuss further with the School Board and Superintendent Tom Sullivan,
I have attached their contact information at the bottom of this mini-blast.
Please, as members of our business community, contact board members, the superintendent, and
Senator Sue Wilson Beffort who has helped in the past.
