For many years, the idea that reducing carbohydrates is the most effective way to reduce fat due to its effect on insulin has been rapidly gaining in popularity. This new study, however, casts serious doubt on the hypothesized mechanism by which consumption of carbohydrates, in particular, would lead to these problems. > Read more

EPA POWER PLANT RULE - MARLO LEWIS

 

Clean Energy Incentive Program: New Unlawful Element in EPA’s Power Plant Rule?
 

EPA’s recently finalized Clean Power Plan (CPP) contains a key policy initiative not discussed or even mentioned in the proposed rule: the Clean Energy Incentive Program (CEIP). EPA will award extra emission allowances and emission rate credits to states that “act early” to increase generation from wind and solar power and/or reduce electricity demand via energy-efficiency measures. You might suppose EPA would explain the legal authority for a substantive policy change affecting potentially hundreds of regulated entities. So what accounts for this curious omission?  > Read more
