Douglas Stewart over at Ameristroika brings us this good news. By now most know the end of coal production is coming soon if Obama and the EPA have their way. U.S.Coal Industry-EPA Rule a setback for coal Now we learn, that it is not the only industry. From Doug Stewart:
I guess a small congrats is in order to the Obama administration. The first regulatory shakedown on marine equipment was a success. Fairbanks Morse Engines has been slapped with a $280,000 fine and has willingly “agreed” to spend upwards of half a million dollars “on an environmental project to resolve alleged violations of the Clean Air Act (CAA) and EPA’s marine diesel engine air rules”, according to the EPA’s report.:
No environmental harm resulted from the propulsion engines. The engines met EPA’s Tier 1 emission standards because they comply with international standards that pre-dated EPA’s Tier 1 emission standards.
