What does the EPA’s recent ruling essentially killing the coal industry have to do with the Communist Party USA? Three words..
The Sierra Club.
According to an article on The Washington Free Beacon, The Sierra Club has been secretly working with the EPA to craft the latest regulations for the coal industry:
Emails between the Sierra Club and the EPA produced through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit show the green group and senior officials at the nation’s top environmental enforcer met and corresponded frequently about the agency’s work on new coal regulations.
The EPA published its long-awaited New Source Performance Standards for new coal-fired plants on Wednesday, four months after the agency announced their creation.
The EPA has repeatedly said the regulations on coal-fired power plants will not be a death blow to the industry. However, the agency was working closely behind the scenes with the Sierra Club, an environmental organization that was pushing the agency to adopt standards that would be impossible for power plants to meet.
Many of the emails are between John Coequyt, head of the Sierra Club’s “beyond coal campaign,” and the EPA’s Michael Goo and Alex Barron, both in the agency’s office of policy at the time.
As disturbing as that is, what should really keep you up at night is the fact that in 2003, Carl Pope, executive director of The Sierra Club, helped to form the Communist affiliated, George Soros funded, Apollo Alliance. (Communist and Obama Green Jobs Czar, Van Jones, was a member of the board).
The Obama Administration (And the Bush Administration..he banned the light bulbs) has been utilizing the Apollo Alliance’s plan to fundamentally transform the United States into a more “Sustainable” one via a 10 year plan titled: The New Apollo Project. Large parts of the New Apollo Project were included in the 2009 Stimulus (Smart Grid, Electric Cars, etc).
After the Apollo Alliance was outed for the bastion of Communists and Socialists that it is, Apollo Alliance members, Carl Pope (Sierra Club Again) and Leo Gerard, The President of the United Steel Workers, formed The Blue Green Alliance. Eventually the Apollo Alliance, and other former Apollo Alliance allies such as the AFL-CIO (who gave money directly to the Communist Party USA) officially merged with the Blue Green Alliance. The Blue Green Alliance still pushes the Apollo Alliance plan, The New Apollo Project, but it has been re-tagged as Jobs21.
This latest collaboration between the EPA and The Sierra Club is not the only time the Obama Administration and The Blue Green / Apollo Alliance have met together. In 2011 members of The Blue Green / Apollo Alliance had visited The White House 170 times. Just recently President Obama even appointed the Co-Founder of the Apollo Alliance and Co-Author of The New Apollo Project, Jay Inslee, to his New Climate Task Force. (Are you beginning to see a trend here?).
As you can see, the Communist affiliated Sierra Club has had a lot of influence on The White House. So the news that they helped craft the coal industry killing EPA regulations did not come as a surprise to me.
What does surprise me, and what this article is intended to prevent in the future, is that this kind of news was a surprise to you.
