    Ahoy There, EPA

    Hundreds of pages of bureaucratic micromanaging of the economy, all in the name of fighting global warming, make up the Environental Protection Agency’s Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR).

    Morning Bell: The Left's Undemocratic Blueprint for Carbon Capping

Since very few analysts believe the price … More

    Water Vapor, Nukes and the EPA

    Something strange is afoot at the Environmental Protection Agency. It is no secret that EPA bureaucrats have been chomping at the bit to start regulating carbon dioxide ever since courts ruled that the naturally occurring plant food which is exhaled by every human being (even Al Gore) is a pollutant. … More
