4 Dec 10 - (Excerpts) It seems almost beyond reason that a single U.S. agency
could so hate America that it was prepared to ignore the Constitution, distort a
Supreme Court decision, and impose its will on the nation in the name of totally
That, however, is what the Environmental Protection Agency is seeking to do
while Americans are distracted by the Christmas celebrations.
The agency’s objective is to regulate so-called greenhouse gases (GHG) on
January 2, 2011. More specifically, it would regulate emissions from power
plants and other large emitters, but in reality it would end the role of coal as
the provider of 50% of the electricity Americans require.
It is essential to understand that the primary GHG is carbon dioxide (CO2) and
it was this gas, naturally produced by the Earth and vital to all vegetation and
life on Earth, that was falsely identified as the “cause” of “global
warming.” Humans individually exhale some six pounds of CO2 every day.
First, there was no “global warming”; only the normal and natural warming that
had been in effect since around 1850 when a 500-year “little ice age” ended in
the northern hemisphere.
Second, the Earth is now in a normal and natural cooling cycle, though with the
added concern that it is also at the end of an 11,500 year interglacial cycle
between the last major ice age and the next.
Third, the data put forth by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
has been almost entirely discredited, based as it was on rigged research by
corrupted university centers and governmental agencies. Some people need to go
to jail, but it is unlikely because the fraud was so vast in its extent.
On November 22nd, The Wall Street Journal published a lengthy editorial, “The
EPA Permitorium” noting that “The scale of the EPA’s current assault is
unprecedented, yet it has received almost no public scrutiny. Since Mr. Obama
took office, the agency has proposed or finalized 29 major regulations and 172
major policy rules.”
The reason there is a nationwide infestation of bed bugs after a half century or
more in which this insect had been virtually eliminated is that the EPA has
restricted the use of almost every pesticide that might exterminate bed bugs.
Now multiply that against EPA restrictions on a host of chemicals vital to the
manufacture of thousands of products.
The effort of the EPA to regulate CO2 and other GHG gases has no basis in
science and none in law. The Clean Air Act does not authorize it.
Moreover, by its own admission, restricting GHGs would only reduce global
temperatures—if that were even possible—by 15 ten-thousandths of a degree
Celsius in the next century.
The EPA is seeking to exercise a totalitarian control over every aspect of the
provision and use of energy in America and it is all based on lies.
Congress can put an end to this nightmare by overturning the EPA’s “Endangerment
Rule” and with it the GHG regulations. A new Congress can and should defund as
much of the EPA as possible.
The use of fossil fuels---coal, oil, and natural gas---accounts for 85% of
America’s energy sources. The EPA proposes to limit or end their use. As such it
is an enemy of the people and Congress must act to stop this insane agency
before it destroys the nation.
