Mission Creep

On Wednesday, before the Senate EPW Committee, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy discussed the EPA’s proposed carbon dioxide regulations (italics added):

“And the great thing about this proposal is it really is an investment opportunity. This is not about pollution control. It’s about increased efficiency at our plants…It’s about investments in renewables and clean energy. It’s about investments in people’s ability to lower their electricity bills by getting good, clean, efficient appliances, homes, rental units.”

This is what happens when an agency has too much power. They think they’re in charge of everything. Like TSA, for another example.
