On Friday, The Washington Times published my Opinion Editorial, “A common-sense approach to coal.” As we prepare for the EPA’s pending 111(d) greenhouse gas regulations that will place emissions limits on existing coal-fired power plants, it is critical that we analyze the potential costs to consumers and potential job losses.

ACCCE recently released a detailed economic analysis that critiques the Natural Resource Defense Council’s (NRDC) carbon regulation proposal, first put forth by NRDC in December 2012 and updated in March of this year. Unfortunately, their proposal ignored a lot of costs to consumers.
