Competitive Enterprise Institute On Lawsuit Against EPA

The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) posted an article on the latest lawsuit against the EPA, which was argued before a panel of three federal judges earlier this week.

CEI writer Christine Hall writes:

EPA’s economically ruinous plans for regulating greenhouse gas emissions are being challenged in federal court this week by a broad array of states and private parties, including the Competitive Enterprise Institute, the Science and Environmental Policy Project, and FreedomWorks.  A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals is scheduled to hear oral arguments on Tuesday and Wednesday in a set of cases challenging EPA’s decision to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases as pollutants under the Clean Air Act.  The court will also review a series of major EPA regulations based on that decision.

The petitioners argue that EPA acted arbitrarily and illegally in a number of respects:  it ignored the severe shortcomings of climate models; it illegally adopted the reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; and it refused to reopen its proceedings in the wake of Climategate.  The agency also ignored the fact that its incredibly costly regulations will have no detectable impact on global temperature.  Despite their extraordinary economic impacts, their much-ballyhooed benefits will in fact amount to zero.

“The fact that the court is devoting two days to hearing these cases demonstrates the importance of these legal questions.  But from a political standpoint, there’s even more at stake,” said CEI Senior Fellow Marlo Lewis.   “In 2010, after two decades of global warming advocacy, Congress declined to give EPA explicit authority to regulate greenhouse gases when Senate leaders pulled the plug on cap-and-trade legislation.  EPA’s insistence on going forward with its command-and-control agenda despite this defies both history and logic.”

    There are 50 to 60 volcano eruptions per month. Some of these volcanoes are in constant activity. The most abundant gas is water vapor followed by carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide. Mercury is a part of the eruptions. By all this activity this is more than we put off in a twenty period are better. The shifting of the tectonic plates is what controls our weather around the world. By this shift of the plates it changes the ocean currents which changes our weather. That is the way earth works and you have no control over that fact. So all these people like Al Gore, Obama and his cooked EPA Lise Jackson and their followers are liars and thieves. They are loading their pockets with our money under the name of global warming. There is no truth to what they say other than to lead the people sheep that follow them down the road of ignorance.
