Americans Face Jump In Electricity Bills Due To Proposed EPA Regulations

Though I am Canadian, most of the readers here on this site come from the United States. This information I am about to share is extremely important and directly affects you.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, known as the EPA, has proposed sweeping regulations that would require all the states to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity sector. They say it has to be reduced by an average 30% nationally. This costly plan is another step in the administration's policies, designed to eliminate low cost and reliable energy, and replacing it with expensive and less reliable sources. 
The U.S. manufacturing market will become less competitive because of the higher electricity costs. Families will have less disposable income due to having to spend more on heating and lighting their homes. Seniors and people on fixed incomes will be forced to dig further into their incomes and monthly budgets on utilities. The EPA's plan is leading Americans into a very uncertain future, that's for sure.

My eyes are wide open. Generally, what happens in the U.S. ends up happening here in Canada too. Our costs are already outrageous for energy. I don't know how many more households in Canada could take a hit like that and pay more too. It is definitely food for thought.

I urge you to contact your local member of congress. This needs to be stopped.

  1. Yes, food for thought. We (in California) are making modifications in personal water usage due to the drought in our parts.

    1. I'm all for trying to decrease consumption, but to make people pay more than it's worth or than they have is an issue.

  2. And the hits keep coming. I don't know the answers, but when a country eliminates the middle class, who foots the bills? Thanks for sharing, Freda.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
