New EPA chief Gina McCarthy said that the Obama administrationis done waiting for Congress to act on climate change. Instead they plan to bypass any legislation or debates and administrate punitively using the EPA as its battering ram to tax and punish American business.
Ms. McCarthy has sworn allegiance to the Obama’s Climate Action Plan claiming that reducing greenhouse-gas emissions could be accomplished without harming economic growth, claiming the obvious the tension between the two "priorities" is a “false choice.”
No talk of the fact that the carbon dioxide greenhouse gas hysteria is a" false choice" based on false data. Water vapor is a more prevalent and a heavier than air molecule that has a propensity to aggregate, is self-modulating via cloud formation and precipitation. If CO2 and other greenhouse *gasses* behaved similarly, there would be no concerns about limiting their production…..but they don’t.
Historically, life on earth THRIVED with much higher levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide and at significantly higher global mean temperatures, wider tropical and temperate zones, plus ice-free conditions. How can human contribution cause “catastrophic events” with CO2 at MUCH lower levels... then?
The president’s Climate Action Plan is nothing more than a ruse to raise the cost of energy to force a change in behavior for all Americans in order to save a planet that is NOT in danger. The consequence of this will be economic despair and personal poverty.
Meanwhile McCarthy held up the idiots in Boulder, Colorado as “examples of jurisdictions that have taken positive action”.
The Boulder City Council placed a year-long moratorium on hydraulic fracturing, despite Colorado Governor Hickenlooper’s theatrical display of swilling a glass of fracking fluid like a Buttery Nipple shooter to prove that the fluid is safe.
