One step forward, two steps back on EPA overreach

Do you want the good news or the bad news first? Let’s start with the bad news. It’s a couple days old, and you need only check the glee at enviro-blogs and Kos to see how unfortunate it is for those of us who like freedom, a thriving economy, and the prosperity they provide.

Reuters:

The Supreme Court refused on Tuesday to consider reducing the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to set air quality standards, leaving intact a tough new limit on sulfur dioxide emissions in a victory for the Obama administration…

“The EPA’s efforts to regulate greenhouse gases during Obama’s first term have been upheld in court, which is a favorable sign for proponents of climate change regulation,” said David Uhlmann, a University of Michigan law professor and former chief of the U.S. Department of Justice Environmental Crimes Section, in a telephone interview.

The decision certainly strengthens the hand of this rarely rebuked White House, which prefers to make sweeping changes in law without bothering with legislation, anyway. And, while the administration is remaking large parts of the economy via regulation, not legislation, it keeps the country in the dark by ignoring its legal requirement to put forth a unified regulatory agenda twice a year. When the federal government refuses (for the first time since the requirement became law by the way) to provide even basic transparency in its regulatory process, guess who suffers most? Hint: It’s not giant corporations and rich actors with well-funded lobbyists in positions to know what’s coming without the publishing of a unified agenda.

  1. What will we do when the arabs cut off the spigott? Block up the strait of Hormuz? How will we power back up after an EMP? Obama and his minions have turned us into the largest sitting duck in the world and the lefties who caused this will be the first and loudest to bitch sand moan if the balloon goes up.

      Obama and the other members of global organized crime are DELIBERATELY doing all they can possibly get away with to destroy America. They want to be the dictators in charge of the One World Satanic totalitarian military police-state dictatorship. FEMA concentration camps, complete with gas chambers, razor wire fencing, watch towers and railroad tracks are located throughout the USA, ready and waiting for all American who object to being slaves to the Satanic power-elite.

  2. Erik Osbun says:

    Congress MUST take back any powers it granted to the EPA, or terminate the EPA altogether.

  3. If you think 1929 was a ECONOMIC CRASH, WATCH THIS FALL! p.s. WOMEN ALONE(NONE PROBABLY HERE), WHO VOTED FOR THIS PROMISED MARXIST TAKEOVER(ONLY SIN NEVER TO BE FORGIVEN EITHER IN THIS WORLD OR THE NEXT), WE'RE ABOUT TO HAVE AN ECONOMIC CRASH THAT WILL DO TO U.S. AS ENGLAND'S MARXIST CRASH DID TO THEM IN 1943! P.S. Welcome to adam's world before the 1st murderer was even born because we do not have another "anglo-saxon brother" to rescue u.s…. Next comes the two-witnesses of Revelation, chapter 11 to severely punish u.s. for 3 1/2 years, leaving only 144,000 Israelites alive with the tribe of Joseph replacing the tribe of Dan as being protected, also as written in Revelation, chapter 7. Again, just saying what's really written…

  4. Sulfur Dioxide has been proven to be a cooling agent by providing more condensation nuclei for cloud droplets. CO2 has never been proven to significantly increase temperature, indeed NASA measurements indicate that the assumed net positive feedback of water vapor has not occurred.

  5. Close EPA down dont give them any more of are tax money they are crooks and are distroying are country we must stop them now the lie to us just like Ovmit does We dont need them they atre lineing there pockets on are money and takeing control of us

    Did anyone happen to see Fox News, Sean Hannity's show on the Washington DC "BoomTown"? Steve Bannon of Breitbart News and Peter Schweizer (author of "Throw Them All Out") from the Government Accountability Institute exposed the MASSIVE government corruption, extortion, grand theft, bribery and still they barely scratched the surface. If you want to get rich quick, dishonestly, just get yourself a government job where you can take bribes, kickbacks and generally use your power and authority to enrich yourself and rob taxpayers. The career politicians are becoming the aristocracy, the privileged, the super-rich. The EPA is a VERY EVIL brainchild creation of the secret servants of Satan designed to get power, control and wealth for the Satanic globalists' New World Order organized crime syndicate.

  7. Congress doesn't do its job or live up to the individual oaths of defending and protecting the Constitution; Obama gets a pass and does whatever he wants. Corrupt politician in the right place at the right time. It helps to have a compliant state owned media behind you.

  8. Bob Higginbotham says:

    I really do want to see how the EPA intends to regulate the primary constituent of greenhouse gas, water vapor.
