Court upholds EPA’s greenhouse gas rules for autos – but lacks jurisdiction on stationary sources like power plants

D.C. Appeals Court OKs EPA Rules on Greenhouse Gases

From Rueters By Ayesha Rascoe

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – An appeals court on Tuesday upheld the first-ever U.S. proposed regulations governing heat-trapping greenhouse gases, handing a setback to major industries like coal-burning utilities and a victory to the Obama administration and environmental groups.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit unanimously ruled that the EPA’s finding that carbon dioxide is a public danger and setting limits for emissions from cars and light trucks were “neither arbitrary nor capricious.”

In the 82-page ruling, the court also found that the EPA’s interpretation of the Clean Air Act to regulate carbon dioxide regulations is “unambiguously correct.”

The court also said it lacked jurisdiction to review the timing and scope of greenhouse gas rules that affect stationary sources like new coal-burning power plants and other large industrial sources.

The court in February heard arguments brought by state and industry challenging the EPA’s authority to set carbon dioxide limits.

Ha....

From the comments:

  1. It is unambiguously correct to state that a human being’s body is a transportation device that emits the same evil gas. Each ambulation is a threat to public safety. Every one of them, including the arbitrary and capricious ones, should be regulated by the EPA as well.

Judges with no knowledge of science have no business pontificating that CO2 is a “public danger”. Utter stupidity.

A victory for what science Phil? What science supports the contention CO2 is a pollutant?

The fact that any group of adults, including these idiot judges, could believe that CO2 is a pollutant just shows how bad our education system is in this country. We have approached a place in our history where it does not look like we have a future. For anyone to believe such utter stupidity is mind boggling.

There is also serious subject/predicate disconnect in the headline.

When bloggers try to type fast to be “first” with the news.

Ah, the new media.

Looks to me like the title got changed for some unknown idiotic reason.

I don’t pretend to know what goes on in the minds of bloggers or their adherents.

I thank God every day for this.

Does this mean we have to remove our catalytic converters?

“A catalytic converter or “Cadillac converter” (colloquially, “cat” or “catcon”) is an exhaust emission control device which converts toxic chemicals in the exhaust of an internal combustion engine into less toxic substances. Inside a catalytic converter, a catalyst stimulates a chemical reaction in which toxic byproducts of combustion are converted to less toxic substances by way of catalysed chemical reactions. The specific reactions vary with the type of catalyst installed. Most present-day vehicles that run on gasoline are fitted with a “three way” converter, so named because it converts the three main pollutants in automobile exhaust: an oxidizing reaction converts carbon monoxide (CO) and unburned hydrocarbons (HC), and a reduction reaction converts oxides of nitrogen (NOx) to produce carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen (N2), and water (H2O).[1]”

"What does “mot” mean?"

In French, it means "word."

In VietNamese it means "one."

In Heavy Metal, it refers to the condition of your crue, as in "Motley Crue."

What does “mot” mean?

Your definition is citing half of the colloquial term, "bon mot." Steyn uses it from time to time.

What a mess. And I am not referring to your slight grammatical slip up. Bastards are destroying this nation’s ability to produce goods in the long run.

I forgot all about comrade Colmes. I don't watch TV other then click through the world news channels from the three alphabets and PBS during dinner time.
I don't think I even get any Fox News other then the local broadcast over the "airwaves".
