Facts vs. Rhetoric on EPA Rule-Making

  • The EPA rule-making process on electricity generating utilities will have an impact on businesses, consumers, and the environment, but the exact impact is difficult to quantify in advance.
  • Players in this energy debate, from interested businesses to Members of Congress may be quick to use dramatic rhetoric on the worst-case scenario, in an effort to influence the process.
  • Beyond the rhetoric, however, is a highly significant energy debate that requires a commitment to facts and a responsibility for oversight.
