Murkowski's Right: Bring EPA to Heel

This is major. Reported by Politico:

Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) plans to introduce an amendment Thursday morning banning the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating carbon dioxide.


The proposal is fiercely opposed by the administration, which sees EPA action as a way to pressure the Senate into passing cap and trade legislation curbing greenhouse gas emissionsRead more.

Of course, Murkowski's proposal is raaaaaaaaacist. With that as a given, let's get around to the facts.

The EPA is expected to release a ruling this fall declaring that greenhouse gases are a danger to human health and welfare. The ruling would allow the agency to begin regulating emissions from power plants, factories, and a broad range of other sources.

IOW, "Cap-n-Tax" by other means. We'll repeat: Cap-n-Tax will be the death of the industrial Midwest (although Doyle's done his damndest to kill Wisconsin without it) and the death of coal-production in this country.
