93 Power Plants in Danger from EPA’s Climate Rule–300,000 Jobs Lost

Clean Water ACT - EPA, Economy, Federal gov & land grabs

California Political Review

The cost of energy is about to go up. About 300,000 workers are going to lose their jobs. Revenues for government is going to go down—while subsidies to crony capitalists will go up.

“For perspective, 80,000 jobs is larger than the population of Napa, CA. But this is only the first part of the story. EPA never quantifies the secondary employment effects of these lost jobs. A 2009 PricewaterhouseCoopers study found that one energy job supports 3.7 additional jobs. Using a jobs multiplier of 3.7, applied to the 80,000 lost jobs that EPA concedes, yields about 296,000 lost jobs across the U.S.

To put the figure of 296,000 lost jobs in context, the average annual pay in the “fossil fuel electric power generation” industry is $103,645 and the average coal mining salary is $82,068. This means that by 2030, the economy could lose $27.7 billion in wages, larger than the GDP of Jamaica. However, nowhere in EPA’s Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) do they monetize the loss of these jobs or wages.”

Obama is doing all he can, and as quick as he can, to assure a generation of high prices, with low wage jobs and high taxes to pay for the very rich to stay in business. The EPA may be our number one job killer—thank you Barack.

93 Power Plants in Danger from EPA’s Climate Rule

By Catrina Rorke, Sam Batkins, American Action Forum, 4/16/15

According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) own estimates, its proposed power plant regulation could eliminate one-fifth of existing coal generation facilities and 80,000 energy jobs. The regulation, set for final publication this summer, would regulate emissions at existing coal and natural gas power plants, while also ensuring that consumers use less energy from coal facilities. Based on American Action Forum (AAF) research, this means that more than 90 coal-fired power plants could be retired across the country. Secondary employment impacts suggest that EPA’s power plant regulation could eliminate 296,000 jobs, about the population of Cincinnati, Ohio and more than the total number of jobs the economy created in February 2015.

Methodology

Buried in one of EPA’s technical support documents, among more than 1,600 other supporting documents for the proposed rule, the administration detailed the economic implications of complying with building blocks one (heat rate improvements at coal plants) and two (increased natural gas dispatch rates and decreased coal usage). EPA estimated one-fifth of existing coal could be retired, around 49 gigawatts (GW) of power, and the coal industry could lose upwards of 80,000 jobs.

Facilities Closure

AAF used the 49 GW figure and EPA’s eGRID data to find the least efficient affected power plants, as measured by heat rate and pounds of CO2 emitted per megawatt hour (CO2/MWh). Anticipating that the least efficient coal facilities are most at risk for closure, AAF identified the 93 least efficient power plants that produced about 50 GW of power.

Below is a map of facilities most susceptible to closure because of EPA’s proposed power plant regulation.

Employment Impacts

EPA predicts that if states adopt only options one and two of the administration’s plan for power plants, 80,000 energy industry jobs will be lost to EPA climate regulations.

For perspective, 80,000 jobs is larger than the population of Napa, CA. But this is only the first part of the story. EPA never quantifies the secondary employment effects of these lost jobs. A 2009 PricewaterhouseCoopers study found that one energy job supports 3.7 additional jobs. Using a jobs multiplier of 3.7, applied to the 80,000 lost jobs that EPA concedes, yields about 296,000 lost jobs across the U.S.

To put the figure of 296,000 lost jobs in context, the average annual pay in the “fossil fuel electric power generation” industry is $103,645 and the average coal mining salary is $82,068. This means that by 2030, the economy could lose $27.7 billion in wages, larger than the GDP of Jamaica. However, nowhere in EPA’s Regulatory Impact Analysis (RIA) do they monetize the loss of these jobs or wages.

Professors Jonathan Masur and Eric Posner of the University of Chicago have devised a central figure of the costs of a lost job: $100,000. Using this data point, the broader economic implications of 296,000 lost jobs become bleak. The employment costs could eclipse $29.6 billion. That figure alone would make it one of the costliest regulations of all time, but it is absent from EPA’s RIA because agencies typically refuse to incorporate employment projections with regulatory analysis.

Below is a snapshot of how EPA anticipates these jobs will be lost throughout the energy industry.

Employment Category

Year 2020

Year 2025

Year 2030

Retired Coal

-15,600

-14,100

-12,300

Retired Oil and Natural Gas

-700

-500

-400

Coal Extraction

-10,500

-12,400

-13,500

Total Loss by 2030: 80,000 Jobs

AAF determined how job losses are distributed across states. Jobs lost through coal and oil and natural gas retirements were allocated according to which states will see the most generation losses because of the proposed EPA climate regulations. EPA provided estimates of historic energy generation and how coal and oil and gas facilities will be redispatched or retired under the rule. Jobs lost in coal extraction were allocated among states according to coal employment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

State Impacts

The distribution of these 296,000 lost jobs is not evenly scattered throughout the United States.

The redispatch or retirement of coal facilities falls heavily on a small number of states that the EPA will hold to more strict compliance goals. For example, Georgia is expected to lose 13.7 terawatt hours of coal through redispatch or retirement. This represents about 3.6 percent of the total lost coal in the U.S. Thus, Georgia’s share is roughly 5,909 fewer jobs. Losses in oil and gas generation are significantly smaller, but fall disproportionately by generation losses. California will lose 10.4 terawatt hours of oil and gas steam generation, amounting to 956 lost jobs.

Jobs lost in coal extraction will also fall disproportionately on a small number of states. While coal extraction in the Appalachian Basin is far more labor-intensive than coal extraction in the western U.S., western states account for a greater percentage of coal generation. The result is job losses distributed across centers of production. For example, Virginia accounts for 6 percent of all coal extraction jobs and will see 7,452 jobs lost.

It is important to note that EPA anticipates that nearly half of all coal extraction jobs will be lost. Of the 76,000 jobs in coal extraction today, EPA climate regulation is anticipated to eliminate 36,400 by 2030.

The following map displays how many jobs each state could lose as result of redispatch, retirement, and lost coal extraction employment.

Conclusion

It’s no surprise that EPA’s greenhouse gas rule will eliminate tens of thousands of jobs in the energy sector; the agency admits the rule will cause steep jobs cuts, up to one-fifth of coal generation. But that’s not the entire story. The 80,000 in possible job losses could easily translate into more than 296,000 jobs throughout the economy and $29 billion in employment costs. EPA might tout the benefits of its proposal, but the significant job losses are just as noteworthy.

CA. Dist. 4 Congressman Tom McClintock speaks of California drought

Agriculture - California, Air, Climate & Weather, CA. Congressman Tom McClintock, California Rivers, California water

Save Our Water
House Chambers, Washington, D.C.
April 22, 2015

Mr. Speaker:

California is now in its fourth year of the worst drought on record. Hydrologists estimate it is the worst drought in 1,200 years. The Sierra Snowpack today is just six percent of normal. Many of our reservoirs are nearly empty. One of our largest, the New Melones Reservoir on the Stanislaus River, is at just 22 percent of its capacity – with the rainy season now officially over.

Water rationing is now in effect in many communities. Many Californians face $500 fines if they take too long in the shower or spill a gallon of water on their sidewalks.

And yet in the last several weeks, the Bureau of Reclamation has released about 10 BILLION gallons of what precious little water remains behind the New Melones Dam in order to nudge a handful of steelhead trout toward the ocean.

That’s enough water to meet the annual residential needs of a human population of 300,000. How many fish are affected?

Biologists estimate that it will affect the offspring of about 29 steelhead trout in the Stanislaus River – a few hundred smolts almost all of which will be eaten by predators long before they reach the ocean. And that assumes they won’t swim toward the ocean on their own – as they have been doing without our helpful assistance since time immemorial.

Put in financial terms, with water selling for $700 per acre foot, the cost of this ridiculous exercise is about $21million. But the real cost will be felt in the fall if the rains don’t return. At that point, these releases guarantee there will be no water left for human beings OR fish.

All this occurs AFTER a compromise without which Lake Tulloch, below New Melones, would have been drained below the water intake pipes that serve a population of nearly 10,000 human beings.

When are we going to wake up to the lunacy of these current environmental laws and the ideological zealots who are administering them?

Who in his right mind would dump enough water to meet the annual residential needs of a population of 300,000 human beings in order to nudge toward the ocean the offspring of maybe 29 steelhead trout – it could be as few as 6 – in the worst drought in 12 centuries? Yet that is precisely the policy of this administration.

President Obama has authority under the existing Endangered Species Act to convene a process to suspend these laws during the drought. Governor Brown also has the authority to request the president to act. Despite repeated calls to do so, neither has responded.

Ironically, before we built these dams, in a drought like this, there would be no water in the rivers and there would be no fish.

Nor is this waste limited to just one reservoir and one river. The Bureau of Reclamation is ordering pulse flows throughout the state, completely uncaring of the impact on the rapidly endangered species called Homo sapiens.

Mr. Speaker, three weeks ago, I introduced HR 1668, the Save Our Water Act. It simply provides that during an extreme drought, the requirements for massive environmental pulse flows are suspended. I want to urge speedy consideration and passage of this act, but I fear it will not come in time to prevent the exhaustion of our remaining water supply.

I warned of this practice last year, and I appealed to state and federal water managers to suspend these water releases during the drought. Sadly, I was unable to rally much public interest – I think in large part because few people actually believed that our water policy could possibly be so foolish.

They do now. We are now reaching a crisis that can no longer be ignored, and Californians are now starting to realize that our environmental laws long ago passed from the realm of reason to the realm of ideological extremism.

Droughts are nature’s fault. Water shortages are OUR fault. We once built dams to store water from wet years so that we would have it in dry ones. But the same radical environmental laws that are squandering our existing water supply have also obstructed the construction of any major new storage since 1979, while the population has nearly doubled.

Dr. Johnson once said that when a man is to be hanged in the morning, it concentrates his attention remarkably. If any good comes out of this drought, it may be that the American people finally have focused on the damage these laws have done, and are ready to change them and the zealots responsible for them.

Lawsuit Filed to Stop San Fran From Abusing Hetch Hetchy in Yosemite

Air, Climate & Weather, California water, Dams other than Klamath

PNP comment: Finally, sensibility has risen. — Editor Liz Bowen

California Political Review

For 100 years San Fran has been getting cheap water from Hetch Hetchy—so much so, they have enough water to sell to other water districts and it is a line item in the San Fran budget as a source of revenues. This money is from the former beautiful valley, taken over by San Fran, 200 miles away. For years there have been lawsuits filed to return the valley to its natural state as well as stopping the crony capitalism of San Fran.

“The petition is straightforward. We intend to show that the value of restoring Hetch Hetchy Valley is greater than the cost of making the water system improvements that would be necessary to move the point of diversion for Tuolumne River flows downstream of Yosemite National Park. As a result, continued operation of the reservoir is a violation of the prohibition against unreasonable methods of diversion in Article X, section 2 of the California Constitution.”

Why aren’t the radicals of San Fran demanding their city stop abusing Yosemite? Why are they using water that their city stole one hundred years ago in a sweetheart deal for them? We will closely watch the progress of this lawsuit.

Restore Hetch Hetchy files lawsuit

Posted by Adolph Rosekrans, Restore hetch hetchy, 4/21/15

Lawsuit asserts Yosemite’sHetch Hetchy Reservoir violates California law

“Not one drop of water need be lost in restoration”

On April 21, 2015, Restore Hetch Hetchy filed a petition in the Superior Court in Tuolumne County asserting that the Hetch Hetchy Reservoir in Yosemite National Park violates the water diversion mandates of the California Constitution.

Restore Hetch Hetchy has been preparing this legal challenge for some time. The occasion of John Muir’s 177th birthday and the eve of Earth Day seemed like an appropriate time to file the petition.

The petition is straightforward. We intend to show that the value of restoring Hetch Hetchy Valley is greater than the cost of making the water system improvements that would be necessary to move the point of diversion for Tuolumne River flows downstream of Yosemite National Park. As a result, continued operation of the reservoir is a violation of the prohibition against unreasonable methods of diversion in Article X, section 2 of the California Constitution.

As passionate as we are about restoring Hetch Hetchy Valley and Yosemite National Park, we are equally committed to ensuring a reliable water supply for San Francisco and other Bay Area communities. Therefore, our petition allows time for San Francisco to develop and implement a plan to assure that not one drop of water is lost and all hydropower is replaced with renewable sources.

While we anticipate opposition, we believe we have a strong case on the merits. We look forward to the opportunity to present our case in the courts.

We have posted both the petition and our press release on our website. Stay tuned – there will be much more to come over the next many months.

A century ago, San Francisco made history by becoming the only city ever to destroy a significant portion of one of our national parks. We intend to reverse that unfortunate chapter of American history and return Hetch Hetchy Valley to Yosemite National Park and all people.

With continued support from all who love Yosemite and America’s national parks, we can make restoration a reality. It is time to return Hetch Hetchy to all people.

Siskiyou board moves forward on code amendment amid fears

State gov

Siskiyou Daily News, Yreka, CA

By David Smith
dsmith@siskiyoudaily.com

The ordinance amendment that spawned angry protest and theories about government intrusion will be headed for a second reading and possible approval next month.

Posted Apr. 22, 2015 at 8:58 AM

The ordinance amendment that spawned angry protest and theories about government intrusion will be headed for a second reading and possible approval next month.

The proposed amendment relates to the county’s code enforcement procedures, introducing a new system whereby code violations – currently treated only as misdemeanors – could instead be handled through an administrative process as infractions.

While the county already has a code enforcement policy that allows personnel to address violations of county codes, numerous residents received a flyer last week alleging that, through the amendment, the county was trying to abolish due process, take land and advance the goals of the United Nations’ Agenda 21.

After hearing concerns prompted by the flyer from constituents, the county board of supervisors continued the first public hearing for the proposed amendment to Tuesday.

Community Development Director Greg Plucker was charged with responding to the public’s concerns, and he opened Tuesday’s meeting by identifying key areas that had induced fears in some residents.

The first, he said, was the contention that the amendment would allow the county to go on anyone’s property and inspect for violations.

Plucker said that the literal language of the ordinance requires the county to obtain permission to enter a property for an inspection. If permission is denied, a warrant can be sought from a judge if sufficient information exists for probable cause.

Another concern, Plucker said, was that the amendment would allow residents to complain about agricultural operations and damage farming or ranching. He explained that the county has a “right to farm” ordinance that would supercede any such complaints.

The amendment proposes an increased maximum fine of $1,000 per day for code violations that are not abated, up from the current standard of $500 per day.  Plucker said the increase was required in order to comply with state law.

Due process concerns were also common at the April 14 meeting, and Plucker said that he believes the administrative process added additional opportunities for review and determination of the appropriateness of alleged code violations.

Approximately 40 members of the public were in attendance at the meeting, and a number came forth to offer their concerns and comments following Plucker’s discussion.

The majority continued to express concerns about due process violations, the need for county codes at all and the alleged expansion of power to county personnel.

A small minority stood before the board to show their support for the amendment, stating that they believe it will help the county enforce longstanding violations.

Agenda 21 was once again a hot topic in comments, although many were vague as to what the connection would be.

The United Nations directive – to which the United States is a party – sets forth standards for sustainable development with respect to reduced pollution emissions and reduced environmental impact.

News from CA Senator Jim Nielsen on State Capitol Water Rally 4-27-15

Water, Resources & Quality

On Monday, April 27, Assemblyman James Gallagher and I will help host a gathering at 11 am in front of the State Capitol to show the Legislature that access to new water should be recognized as a more urgent need than a new NBA arena. We are demanding that legislation be passed to allow Sites Reservoir to be built in the same expedited matter as the Kings Arena.

Many of you attended this month’s meeting with the California Water Commission in Chico to show the strong support our community has for the construction of Sites Reservoir. With standing room only, you demonstrated to the Commission the will of our community. I cannot thank you enough.

Our work, however, is not done. We must continue our efforts.

James and I are asking you to join us in Sacramento this coming Monday. Our proposed legislation will go before the Assembly Committee on Natural Resources, and we need your help to apply pressure to the Committee.

With the state enduring its fourth year of drought conditions, water conservation for residents is mandated at as high as 36 percent. This is on top of the zero of water allocation for farmers and ranchers. Senior water rights holders are being curtailed. Groundwater is being regulated. These drastic measures are put in place because of the lack of planning.

California can do better. We can better plan for future droughts.

Water is essential to our everyday lives. Water helps the agricultural community generate thousands more jobs and is a bigger part of our state’s economy than the Sacramento Kings.

We need your attendance to show the Legislature that water deserves the same treatment.

Sincerely,

Jim Nielsen
Senator, Fourth District

No listing for Sierra sage grouse sends signal across West

Agriculture - California, Bureau of Land Management, Endangered Species Act, Federal gov & land grabs

PNP comment:Best way to endanger or threaten a species is to list it with the ESA for the bureaucrats to manage — destroy! Editor Liz Bowen

No Listing for Sierra Sage Grouse Sends Signal Across West

Interior Secretary Sally Jewell reversed the government’s proposed federal protection for a type of sage grouse specific to California and Nevada on Tuesday, and said it shows it’s still possible to head off a bigger, looming listing decision for the greater sage grouse across 11 western states.

Jewell joined Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval and others in announcing she’s withdrawing the government’s 2013 proposal to declare the bistate, Mono Basin sage grouse a threatened species along the California-Nevada line.

The bird found only along the Sierra’s eastern front no longer faces the threat of extinction thanks to voluntary conservation efforts and range improvements initiated by ranchers, local governments, private land owners and public land managers, she said.

“What this has shown is that despite the stresses we feel on the landscape here — particularly around drought and wildfire and other stresses that impact this part of the world — we can still create and find habitat that supports sage grouse,” Jewell said in a speech outside Nevada Department of Wildlife headquarters in Reno.

“There’s no reason you can’t have a healthy state with a healthy economy and a healthy ecosystem. By working together, you can have it all,” she said.

The bistate bird is a genetically distinct population of the greater sage grouse species, which is under consideration for protection in Nevada, California and nine other states stretching from Oregon to the Dakotas.

“This is welcome news for all Nevadans,” said Sandoval, a Republican. “Working together, I’m hopeful we can preclude the need to list the greater sage grouse just as we have done with the bistate.”

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is under a court order to make a listing decision on the greater sage grouse by Sept. 30 in a legal battle with conservationists that spans more than 15 years.

“I think it is very possible not to list that species,” Jewell told reporters after her bistate announcement.

Conservationists who petitioned to protect both populations accused Jewell of caving to pressure from Western conservatives who fear federal protection would mean dramatic restrictions on livestock grazing, energy exploration and other development of public lands.

Michael Connor, California director of the nonprofit Western Watersheds Project, said that as recently as last December federal officials had assigned the bistate grouse the “maximum priority for listing” based on the magnitude of threats facing the isolated population across more than 7,000 square miles Carson City to near Yosemite National Park.

“The service’s backpedalling in claiming that unfinished management plans and voluntary, cooperative agreements will protect the species is untrue and smacks of political expediency,” Connor said Tuesday.

Randi Spivak, public lands director for the Center for Biological Diversity, agreed. “Half measures may delay extinction but it won’t prevent it,” Spivak said.

Jewell said the decision not to list the bistate grouse should be “real encouraging” for other western states pursuing similar voluntary measures to ward off listing of the greater sage grouse.

“I think if it had been listed after all the hard work and effort after 15 years, it would make people discouraged — ‘Gosh, we’ve worked together so hard and maybe there isn’t a way to protect these ecosystems,’ ” Jewell told reporters.
