President Obamas Clean Power Plan is remarkable, and not just because it gives the United States some global credibility on climate change. The real brilliance is that the proposal which would cut carbon emissions by 32 percent from 2005 levels over the next 10 years backs the opposition into a corner with no credibility.

..

Not that coal interests and their apologists, including Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and attorneys general from coal mining and heavy coal-burning states, wont put up a loud fight. McConnell said Obama was taking aim at the lifeblood of the Kentucky economy. Patrick Morrisey, West Virginias attorney general, moaned that the rules were drawn up by radical bureaucrats pursuing a radical, unprecedented regime.

..

Arguments against the Clean Power Plan are sure to last well into the next administration and the issue likely will make its way to the Supreme Court. Regardless, there is much to be optimistic about. State by state, project by project, Americans are deciding there is nothing radical about a new regime of renewable energy, cleaner air, and a curb on greenhouse gases.

..

Six years ago, Obamas proposal for a national cap-and-trade program was trashed, even by a Democrat-led Senate. This time, the administration honed the rules into a clear bulls-eye on electricity thats generated by coal-fired power plants. Cutting carbon emissions by 32 percent effectively means no new coal-fired facilities will be built.

..

Also, Americans in 2015 better understand that coal is the worst of the common fossil fuels. Power plants that run on it dont just spew gases that speed climate change. They also create toxins like mercury that eventually show up in wildlife, as well as pollutants that give children asthma.
