Lobbying groups have told the Environmental Protection Agency its proposal to limit greenhouse gases from power plants through carbon capture is going beyond what is feasible, writes Bloomberg BusinessWeek. The groups are worried about what the EPA’s rules for power plants mean for other industries since the EPA has pledged to go after other major carbon gas emitters as well. Ross Eisenberg, vice president for the National Association of Manufacturers, said, “This rule would pose a bad precedent for other industries,” and is encouraging the EPA to “rethink and rework” its proposal. BusinessWeek notes that NAM is leading a drive of 140 organizations in a lobbying effort against the EPA’s new rules.
