Well, his EPA is making that a reality in Ohio, and it's surely only the beginning:
Duke Energy says they will be closing the W.C.Beckjord Station in New Richmond by January 1 of 2015. Duke Says that the 60-year-old plant has served many but the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is expected to implement new environmental regulations that would require hundreds of millions of dollars to bring the plant into compliance.
Officials say they will continue operating all six coal-fired units at Beckjord until the anticipated 2015 closing date.
An estimated 120 employees work at the Beckjord Station. Duke Energy says that will work with the impacted workers and unions to determine other positions for employment.
Obama: Killing jobs for hardworking Ohioans and causing our energy costs to be even more impossible than what they are now.
Thanks, that's some awesome hope and change.
