In December [2011] Barack Obama trumpeted a new [regulation] for mercury emissions from power plants.  The rule, he boasted, would prevent thousands of premature deaths, heart attacks and asthma cases.  The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reckoned these benefits were worth up to $90 billion a year, far above their $10 billion-a-year cost. Mr Obama took a swipe at past administrations for not implementing this ‘common-sense, cost-effective standard.’  A casual listener would have assumed that all these benefits came from reduced mercury.  In fact, reduced mercury explained none of the purported future reduction in deaths, heart attacks and asthma, and less than 0.01% of the monetary benefits.  Instead, almost all the benefits came from concomitant reductions in a pollutant that was not the principal target of the rule: namely, fine particles.

… consumers and firms purchase products based on a number of factors—only one of which is energy efficiency.  Government agencies exhibit a parochial bias by ignoring all product attributes other than energy efficiency.
