Chart Shows How Environmental Regulations Destroy the Economy

Oh, ah, wait. Maybe not.

Despite what Republicans and their corporate masters are screaming about with regard to Obama’s proposed cuts to power plant emissions, history shows that environmental regulations do not — repeat — do not slow and/or destroy economies.  They might force corporations to spend money to retrofit plants (the real reason for all the screaming) but implementing them doesn’t mark the end of life as we know it.  To those of us who’ve been around for a while, that meme is as old as dirt.

From Peter Gleick:

 

Enviro rules Don't destroy the economy

(Via Peter Gleick)

BTW, a huge majority of Americans support regulations like the ones proposed.
