  • Morning Bell: Make Them Regulate

    Commenting on the Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to classify carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gasses as a danger to the public’s health and welfare, Frank O’Donnell, president of the eco-leftist Clean Air Watch, told the Los Angeles Times, “The Obama administration now has the legal equivalent of a .44 magnum … The bullets aren’t loaded yet, but they could be.” If our economy ever hopes to recover, it is imperative that the American people reject the Obama administration’s audacious blackmail threat.

    The EPA’s endangerment finding for greenhouse gas emissions on Friday will not be finalized until a mandated 60-day comment period is completed. But once it becomes final, the ruling will trigger massive economy-wide EPA regulations. New York Law School professor David Schoenbrod tells the Washington Post: “This would be a regulatory maze far exceeding anything we’ve seen before.” According to the US Chamber of Commerce, regulating carbon through the Clean Air Act would affect at least one million mid-sized commercial buildings, including: 1/5 of all food service businesses, 1/3 of all health care businesses, 1/2 of the entire lodging industry, and even 10% of all buildings used for worship. The Heritage Foundation’s Center for Data Analysis has estimated that EPA carbon regulations will cause annual job losses exceeding 800,000 for several years and a cumulative GDP loss of $7 trillion by 2029.

    The alternative favored by the Obama administration and their leftist allies in Congress is no better. Legislation is still being formed in the House and Senate, but all proposals so far are stricter than the Lieberman-Warner cap and trade bill the Senate rejected last year. Even the more lenient Lieberman-Warner bill was an economy killer. Center for Data Analysis shows Lieberman-Warner cap and trade plan would have cost the U.S. economy $4.8 trillion by 2030.

    Throughout this debate, the left is going to try and portray the EPA as an objective arbiter of scientific fact. Nothing could be further from the truth. In her statement accompanying the finding, EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson said, “This pollution problem has a solution — one that will create millions of green jobs and end our country’s dependence on foreign oil.” This is wishful thinking. Just ask the Chinese who have made it clear they will never sacrifice their economic growth to reduce carbon emissions or the Indians who have called the trade off between economic growth and carbon caps “morally wrong.”

    American consumers are already beginning to feel the economic pain from existing alternative fuel mandates. Both Obama’s carbon regulations and Obama’s cap and trade plan would harm consumers far worse. Instead of strangling our economic recovery with high energy prices, Congress should be moving to unleash free enterprise, protect America’s energy interests, and advance free global energy markets. But first they must say no to blackmail from Obama’s EPA.

      First show me the so called scientific fact! There is none and if the Government uses these words then on that basis alone, there needs to be one heck of a fight!

      There's only one immediate LEGAL solution

      to this EPA FRAUD, and that would be to

      find enough people to get an IMPEACHMENT

      ORDER(S) against any and ALL individuals

      who have acted in direct contravention to

      the Constitution. Other than that, we

      would have to wait until the 2010 election

      cycle to exercise the "term limit option".

      By then, unfortunately, it might well be

      TOO LATE to turn around the severe damage

      that's being done even as I write this!!

      We still have SOME God-given rights intact

      despite this administration's best efforts

      to the contrary, but, if we do not in fact

      USE them, then we have nobody but our-

      selves to blame for our inaction! Like

      the tea party deal, we'd better get busy

      NOW or suffer the consequences…

      You people really are nuts. THIS "recommendation" of yours is exactly what Congress did with the banking and wall street industry. ANYONE can see where that led the economy.

      Unleashing free enterprise is not an answer. It is a farce and you know it. There has to be some regulation and you have to be a part of helping find the right balance. Unleashing is not it.

      Get real and then citizens will listen

    7. Ben C, Ann Arbor, MI says:

      The whole notion of CO2 as a major pollutant is bogus. The following are quotes from people way smarter than me:

      The attachment appears to validate that the growth of CO2 in the atmosphere is not urgent as predicted by Gore and the IPCC. Perhaps, Nature's controls (biological feedback, etc), in fact are strong. It very strongly supports the thesis that human CO2 has no measurable effect on the earth's climate.

      We need to have open, honest discussions of the facts relating to the two issues my prior e-mail defines. We need to have these discussions before we continue to expend vast wealth on the solution to what most probably are non-problems, supported only by intuition.

      • Freeman Dyson, professor of physics at the Institute for Advanced Study, in Princeton, has become outspoken and critical of the computer models that are driving climate alarmism. Dyson says, "I have studied the climate models and I know what they can do. The models solve the equations of fluid dynamics, and they do a very good job of describing the fluid motions of the atmosphere and the oceans. They do a very poor job of describing the clouds, the dust, the chemistry and the biology of fields and farms and forests. They do not begin to describe the real world that we live in." Dyson tackles these bogus climate models along with stratospheric cooling in two short YouTube videos.

      • Antonio Zichichi, president of the World Federation of Scientists, is now saying that "models used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are incoherent and invalid from a scientific point of view."

      • Richard Lindzen, Sloan Professor of Meteorology at MIT, takes a harder look at negative climate feedbacks. "Future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early 21st century’s developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree, and, on the basis of gross exaggerations of highly uncertain computer projections combined into implausible chains of inference, proceeded to contemplate a roll-back of the industrial age."

      • Australia’s foremost Earth scientist, Ian Plimer, publishes Heaven And Earth: Global-Warming – The Missing Science. The inconvenient professor Plimer states that "The hypothesis that human activity can create global warming is extraordinary because it is contrary to validated knowledge from solar physics, astronomy, history, archaeology and geology."

      • A U.S. Navy physicist warns of possibly "several decades of crushing cold temperatures and global famine." Concern about cooling becomes commonplace. Mother Nature might even be credited with saving capitalism if this climate realism can end the suffocating alarmism. Russia airs cooling concerns freely. The Russians say our twelve-thousand-year-long warm period is ending and we are entering another ice age.

      • Scientific graphs (within the PDF report) show global temperature has been falling for seven years. The graphs also show "CO2 concentration had been rising at about half the UN's central estimate, requiring its warming projections to be halved and rendering them harmless; and that 20 years of satellite observations of changes in outgoing long-wave radiation had demonstrated conclusively that the UN had exaggerated the effect of CO2 on temperature by a factor of 7–10. The economic graph showed the cost of adapting to "global warming" (if and when it resumed) as being many times cheaper than the cost of attempting to mitigate it."

      It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of scientists who don’t buy into anthropogenic global warming.

      REGULATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION!!! Should be the theme o the next Tea Parties.

      This is the worse than Congress voting on THE LIE… ever try reversing a regulation? I have, it was MTBE, the gasoline additive mandated by the EPA in 1992 (Carol Browner!) I found out the hard way that appointed commissioners (czars?) are responsible only to the party that appointed them. Congress & the senate had no power against the EPA.

      The battle over MTBE included a NAFTA court case (Chapter 11) and a battle for states rights…. It ended up with a blue ribbon panel and individual states just banning it… Oh, yes, this was all about the CO2 lies.

    13. Judith of The Late, says:

      Perhaps I'm being very cynical, but I believe the Obama admin. is deadly serious about this EPA edict and all of its other pronouncements, even this past weekend's lovefest in Latin America. The ultimate goal is the complete destruction of the USA's way of life, our commerce, and freedoms and to remake our country into a European-style Socialist country with Mr. O as dictator for life. The admin is not stupid or ignorant. They know exactly what they are doing.

      Can we citizens stop this madness? Only if we fight loudly, extend the "tea parties" concept, and DEMAND our legislators be held accountable. Lets get going !!

    14. Blair S., Oklahoma C says:

      Of all of the pending leftist legislation and regulation, this is by far the most devastating to our economy and the middle class.

      The sad fact is that we are powerless to do anything about it. If Congress doesn't act the EPA will, and the EPA is accountable to no one….

    15. CM Colorado says:

      I should of held my breathe all day on April 15th, maybe earn some future credits on my emission card for future use. These fools have made themselves apparent and we cannot stand by and let them strip us of liberty. Fight back change the thinking of our children, and grandchildren. Show them the real truth.

    16. Ray Hodges, Arizona says:

      Please note that the EPA was VERY resistant to this regulation. They lost several challenges to enforcing this, including a lawsuit filed by Mass. that went to the U.S. Supreme Court to force the EPA to regulate CO2 as a pollutant. The EPA was also blasted last year for "dragging their feet" by Barbara Boxer while performing due diligence to create the regulation to enforce.

      I believe that the EPA feels that this will be a nightmare to enforce for much the same reasons as your posts above. People and animals exhaust CO2. It is a slippery road to start regulating a natural exhaust of such a large scale. I find it quite the joke and I have poked fun on the ECOstrive web site, but I wanted to take the rare opportunity to defend the EPA because they fought this tooth and nail. Unfortunately, as a government agency, eventually you have to do what the government tells you to.

      Hi from a conservative, la la la, the only thing that is going to effect change is to vote out the career politicians, rinos socialists, commies and whoever else is against free

      will,individualism and America. We need more tea parties, more grass roots education on what is happening to our great country because the public schools are clearly indoctrinating our young people. We need to move quickly because there alot of people out there that are sleeping and when they wake up will be wondering what happened to their frredom.

    18. Spiritof76, New Hamp says:

      Calling CO2 as harmful pollutant is equivalent to saying that all living mechanisms on the earth are incompatible. Atmospheric CO2 is in trace amount-375ppm. But it a vital gas in that plants use it in conjunction with sun light,visible spectrum turn into food and oxygen. Both of those are required for the survival of all animal and human lives on earth. What is the right value of CO2 and more importantly,what is the right climate? You will find neither throughout the history of the earth when human beings are not even present on the earth.

      Effect of CO2 in trapping heat and increasing surface temperature is based on a rudimentary model without any interacting effects (solubility and density), without any bio-feedback effects, without any cloud effect as a result of increasing surface temperature and in isolation of earth from the effect of sun. By the way, all the measured surface temperature increases has been wiped out with the recent cooling trend. Astrophysicists have now noted that the sun spot activities are completely absent and they say, if that trend continues, we would end up with a mini-ice age.

      EPA characterization of CO2 as a pollutant is based on the socialist agenda of exerting as much power over population and their economy and has nothing to do with science or anything else. They want to destroy our way of life in this country.

      I admire both the Chinese and Indian positions for rejecting the European socialist mantra of global warming as a result of achieving high standard of living.

      I can say nothing here that hasn't already been said by the posts. Environmentalist nutcases will not allow us to become energy independant. We will be at the mercy of Middle East and Central American Dictators. Not to mention the upcoming Dictator in our own house. Some people think Obama does not take much time looking at the Economy. I disagree, I beleive he studies it intently. I beleive he understands its weaknesses very well. I beleive he is taking each and every step possible to do the economy harm in order to hustle in NEW WORLD ORDER. Obama and his administration are now responsible for the most irresponsible governement spending in the history of the States. Now, regulate corporations to near death by co2 emmissions regulation. Not committed to reducing the deficit. Regulating The Auto-makers, banks, housing, insurance. TREASON PERIOD. I charge President Barrack Obamma AND ALL MEMBERS OF CONGRESS with Treason to wit ACTIONS INTENDED TO HARM THE ECONOMY AND CITIZEN'S OPPORTUNITY FOR PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS AND LIBERTY.

      Why don't these moral equivalents to Stalin, go start a company that runs green and prove to us their products are better and risk their money and their capital on their repressive ideas and show the world their superiority with competitive ideas and solutions?

      We are under attack from every angle like never before, by a fascist hoard, who seem to have finally decided not to preach their fabrications at high brow tea parties any more but to unleash their unfounded mania upon all walks of life.

      Apparently it isn't cool aide being served but testosterone glazed, steroid filled gumdrops of meglo-mania-cidyl self purpose.

      The level of frustration at being a liberal and taking 30-40 years, to fail at encouraging people to your way has finally caused a synopsis overload on the entire enclave and they are showing signs of complete unabashed uncontrollable hysterical suppression of all that defies their insanity.

      This is going to have the same results of allowing a spoiled arrogant child cause mayhem on a bus ride to a camping trip four hours away. No one will remember the fun summer camp and the great time they may have had, as their only memory will be the destruction anxiety and the tantrums that caused every one misery, without a justifiable cause, and how all they wanted to do was get off their bus and give up on their dream.

      To bad this ride is for four years and by the time we get where we are going the camp will have gone out of business.

    27. Mike Sheahen, Hickor says:

      First of all, "Make Them Regulate"?

      Am I missing something?

      The reason why I ask that is because the Socialist Left is in control of the White House and Congress, and so, along with their so-called "Moderate" or "Middle-of-the-road (Roadkill)" collaborators, (whether "Democrat", "Republican", or "Independent"), you're talking about Socialist Leftists and their "middle-of-the road (Roadkill)" collaborators, all of whom have demonstrated, and continue to demonstrate, how they want to demagogue, pander, tax, spend, and "regulate", as in have and entrench government control, whether it’s to have, increase, and permanently entrench such Leftist government power, or at least do so insofar as they believe it will help them be or stay in office and such power!

      As for "Congress should be moving to unleash free enterprise, protect America’s energy interests, and advance free global energy markets. But first they must say no to blackmail from Obama’s EPA", again you're talking about the same Socialist Leftists and their so-called "Middle-of-the-road (Roadkill)" collaborators, as described above, so that's like foolishly expecting "a zebra to change his spots", which is something even they are demonstrating and proving is not happening and is not going to happen as long as they, those of their ilk, their collaborators, and their bureaucratic beneficiaries are in, and even increase, such government power.

      So what to do? Well, aside from the improbable event of the House impeaching and the Senate removing Obama from the Presidency, exactly because of how the facts and records (including the Congressional Record) show how Obama, his Socialist Left Comrades in control of Congress, and their collaborators, support the same Leftist government elitist and statist agenda, there's always the power of the people to recall out of office both the Socialist Leftists in control of Congress and their collaborators, as in before the next election.

      Or, if the power of the people to recall out of office is already somehow thwarted in some States, Counties, and/or Districts in the U.S, there are, as of yet, despite any Leftist government elitist and statist inclinations and antics to the contrary, the next elections, such as the elections of 2010 and 2012.
