Heading 'Em Off at the Pass: Texas

Good news.

Gov. Rick Perry and other top Texas officials on Tuesday announced a legal challenge to the federal government's finding that greenhouse gases are dangerous to people, claiming the ruling was based on flawed science.

..."The EPA's misguided plan paints a big target on the backs of Texas agriculture and energy producers and the hundreds of thousands of Texans they employ," Perry said. "This legal action is being taken to protect the Texas economy and the jobs that go with it, as well as defend Texas' freedom to continue our successful environmental strategies free from federal overreach."

Obama intends to issue executive orders which will effect "Cap-N-Tax" by other means, based on SCOTUS' ruling that EPA has the right to manage CO2 emissions. This suit may (underscore MAY) prevent that.

I've been thinking for some time now that our only hope will be in the long as these challenges can get to the courts before Obama packs them with radical leftists.
