It is fairly common knowledge that the Great Green Hope (aka Almighty Stopper of Global Warming, Obama) in His infinite wisdom has declared that He will invoke His great green power to bypass Congress and use the EPA – whose “knowledge” seems to depend on the very dubious proclamations of the IPCC – to implement His highly igNobel Environmental Peace Plan.
Harvey M. Sheldon is a Chicago attorney specializing in environmental law. Over at American Thinker, Sheldon offers some food for environmental thought, in which he concludes:
The “finding” of the administrator was not made under Title I. In fact, its legality is highly questionable even under Title II. I seriously doubt the EPA can escape a duty to develop national air quality standards under Section 108(b) of the Act based on statutory history and the case law. Promulgating such standards requires consideration of “all relevant science” before it can occur. In short, if this is made into a fight over genuine science, with rules in play about the competence of evidence and witnesses, I have little doubt that the skeptic view will win.
People need to see the wolves in green clothing for what they are: charlatans. Honest environmentalists need to stop their unquestioning clamor, revisit the science, and recognize the truth, lest the very good cause they serve be seriously harmed.
Americans and American business should not knuckle under to this cynical and corrupt power grab. Before new policy and rules are made, we must demand a thorough airing of the climate science with a fair and honest process by a reliable investigating team. It will not be that hard to root out the fudging and falsification of data.
This is the fight that will define the twenty-first century as either a time when mankind advances due to honest enterprise, quality science, and technical achievement…or we are subjugated by government micro-regulation from manipulative control freaks based on false and slanted data from grant recipients with no scruples.
