Your Views: Let common sense prevail in Obama’s carbon rules

President Obama’s latest mandate, along with EPA chief Gina McCarthy, states that there must be a 30 percent cut in carbon emissions by 2013.

Well, well. Does anyone realize what the increase in energy cost will be? It will be enormous.

But to save a lot of verbiage and time, I will quote an article from the June 3 issue of the Wall Street Journal. That quote says, “Based on the EPA’s own carbon accounting, shutting down every coal-fired power plant tomorrow and replacing them with zero-carbon sources would reduce the Earth’s temperature by about 1/20th of a degree Fahrenheit in a hundred years.”

So, does common sense prevail, or will extravagant costs to energy users?
