Energy costs to skyrocket, states Chamber of Commerce!

According to to a recent article by the Chamber of Commerce, energy costs are about to skyrocket! One estimate I heard on the media was for Americans to expect a $2400 increase in electric bills in 2015. That's two hundred dollars a month tacked on to whatever you're already paying! And the kicker, they say, is that the new EPA regulations affecting coal fired power plants will not move the world pollution needle even a tenth of a degree. That's due to the fact that other countries, notably China and India, are opening new plants on a average of one a week!

In addition to rising energy costs, the same study also cited enormous losses in jobs all across the United States! See the news release issued by House Energy and Commerce Committee, quoting Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-Ky.), June 2, 2014
