EPA To Strangle the Upper Midwest? Bring It On!

Game on.

The Obama EPA is explicitly saying for the first time that a pending greenhouse gas (GHG) vehicle emissions rule, when finalized, will define carbon dioxide (CO2) and other GHGs as regulated under the Clean Air Act and will therefore trigger mandates for new power plants and other stationary sources to limit their GHGs. --Carbon Control News, quoted in GreenHell

From the top:

1) There is no measurable anthropogenic global warming.

2) CO2 has nothing to do with global warming, anthropogenic or not--it comprises 0.3% of the atmosphere.

3) EPA is threatening Congress in order to secure passage of Cap-N-Tax, which would limit EPA's authority over CO2. Far more important, EPA is threatening the Midwestern States' economic viability by threatening coal- and gas-fired electrical generation.

If EPA wants a war, fine. Bring it on! You, too, can meet the "bought and paid-for" unwashed, just outside your regional or local offices, or in DC. It may not be pleasant........

Someone commented that a more conservative Congress could override the EPA. Unfortunately, I can imagine the EPA going rogue, and telling Congress, the courts, and even the President to go pound sand.

congress gave the EPA the power to do pretty much whatever they want.

Frankenstein's Monster. And not in a good way.
