At Least the EPA Doesn’t Regulate Hyperbole …Yet

Marketplace Morning Report does a brief story this morning on the National Association of Manufacturers’ ad campaign against EPA regulation of greenhouse gas emission. (See www.NoNewRegs.org) In the competing sound bites, Frank O’Donnell musters his usual attention to fact and detail.

Association lobbyist Alicia Meads.

Alicia Meads: Profit margins are extremely tight right now and we feel that these regulations are hurting that more and will cause job loss.

Frank O’Donnell heads the environmental group Clean Air Watch. He says the EPA regulations would save manufacturers money. They would have to be more energy efficient. That means lower power bills.

Frank O’Donnell: To hear these crazy horror stories from the business community just makes my head spin because it’s like a bizarro world.

Well, it’s not the NAM that claims higher energy prices saves manufacturers money and lowers power bills. Talk about Bizarro.
