Stop the EPA Power Grab!
Help stop the biggest threat to America's
freedom and prosperity
that Obama has attempted so far
I received this info from Myron Ebell at the Freedom Action
group today, and because I'm so firmly convinced that
human-caused global warming is a total lie, I want to pass
it on to you.
President Obama's Environmental Protection Agency has taken
the first steps to control our entire economy in the name of
saving the planet from global warming. The EPA has
declared carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are
pollutants that endanger public health and welfare and is
rushing through Clean Air Act regulations to tell us how
much and what kind of energy we can use.

The EPA has already decided that the American people are
going to have to use a lot less energy in the near future.
How much will we have to pay for that energy? A lot more.
Higher electric rates, higher gasoline prices, higher
heating bills, higher airline fares, higher food prices, and
higher prices for nearly every product we buy.
President Obama himself said that under his plan,
electricity prices will "necessarily skyrocket." A recent
study by Harvard University's Belfer Center predicts that to
achieve Obama's goals will require gasoline prices of $7 to
$9 a gallon.
Yet, there is hope from an unlikely source that Obama can be
stopped—the U. S. Senate. On June 10, the Senate will vote
on a Resolution offered by Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska)
to deny the EPA the authority to regulate our energy use.
The vote looks like it will be very close. You can make the
difference by e-mailing both your Senators today to tell
them to vote Yes on the Murkowski Resolution of Disapproval
of the EPA's Endangerment Finding. You can do this by using
Freedom Action's automated form.

Forty-one Senators, including three Democrats, are
sponsoring the Murkowski Resolution, which is officially
titled Senate Joint Resolution 26 (or S. J. Res. 26). We
must put pressure on the Senate to reach the 51 votes needed
to pass the resolution on June 10. It's critical that
Senators hear from their constituents immediately.

Why is President Obama and the EPA doing this? They say:
It's to stop global warming. What global warming!? The
scientist at the center of the ClimateGate scandal admitted
recently there has been no statistically significant global
warming since 1995. In fact, since 2002, global
temperatures have gone down slightly.
Do you see a pattern here? Make wild claims about global
warming and looming catastrophes. Manipulate the data,
ignore the facts, and shut up anyone who tries to speak the
truth. Then regulate the economy on the basis of phony
science and scare stories. It's all straight out of Al
The fact is that America and the world get over 80% of the
energy we use from the three fossil fuels—coal, oil, and
natural gas. Coal provides 50% of our electricity. Oil
provides over 90% of our vehicle fuels.
Affordable energy is the basis of the American standard of
living. What will happen if Obama's EPA forces us to reduce
drastically the use of fossil fuels? First, a regulatory
nightmare. Followed by an economic train wreck.
Here's what Mississippi's Republican Governor, Haley
Barbour, said in support of the Murkowski Resolution:
"Reducing greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act
will undoubtedly increase the cost of energy, increase the
cost of doing business, increase the cost of consumer
products, and jeopardize millions of jobs by putting U.S.
manufacturers at a disadvantage against foreign
That's why the Senate vote on June 10 on S. J. Res. 26 is so
critical to America's future.

If the global warming scare is based on phony science, why
is President Obama so determined to regulate greenhouse gas
emissions? It's all about big government control over our
lives and the economy.
Cap-and-trade (better known as cap-and-tax) legislation was
the first attempt to put government in charge of how much
energy we can use. The House passed the Waxman-Markey
cap-and-tax bill on June 26, 2009 by a 219-212 vote.
Many big corporations, such as Goldman Sachs, General
Electric, Duke Energy, General Motors, and Dow Chemical,
support cap-and-tax because they would be rewarded with
hundreds of billions of dollars of windfall profits from
special deals in the legislation.
But the American people figured out that cap-and-tax meant
much higher energy prices for them and said "No!" That's
why the Kerry-Lieberman cap-and-tax bill is dead in the
Senate. And that's why President Obama is resorting to
backdoor EPA regulations to raise energy prices through the
What is most outrageous is that they think they can mount
this sneak attack on American consumers without
Congressional approval. Senate passage of the Murkowski
Resolution to block the EPA regulations will send a strong
message to the White House to back off and put immediate
pressure on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) to
hold a vote on the Resolution in the House. Already, 170
House Members have co-sponsored an identical House version
of Senator Murkowski's Resolution. This list includes two
Democratic committee chairman and a number of other senior
It looks to be a very close vote on June 10. That's why I
urge you to e-mail your Senators today and tell them to vote
Yes on the Murkowski Resolution of Disapproval. It's the
most important action you can take right now to stop Obama's
big government takeover.

“I have been leading the fight against the global warming
in the Senate for a decade. Myron Ebell
and his team have always
been there fighting beside me.
Freedom Action is an invaluable ally.”
America did not become great because big government told us
what to do and will not remain great if we continue down the
path laid out by President Obama. We have a difficult
struggle to block President Obama on this and on many other
issues to come.
But a clear sign that the tide has turned in our direction
is the fact that the most important global warming vote in
the Senate this year is not on whether to pass the
Kerry-Lieberman cap-and-tax bill, but on whether to stop EPA
from regulating America into energy poverty.
We can stop Obama's EPA power grab by working together to
make Congress feel the heat. I invite you to join us at
Freedom Action in going on the offense for freedom.

Remember, the vote is on Thursday, June 10th.
Thanks for all you do to keep America strong!
Yours for freedom,
