EPA Administrator: We ‘Look at Climate Change As Something Where We … Can Grow Jobs’

Gina McCarthy, administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), asked scientists at a climate change conference on Thursday in Arlington, Va., to explain the science of climate change.

She also said that the EPA looks at climate change as an opportunity to grow the economy and create jobs. […]

Obama referenced climate change in his State of the Union address while talking about “cleaner energy.”

“The shift to a cleaner energy economy won’t happen overnight, and it will require tough choices along the way,” Obama said. “But the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact. And when our children’s children look us in the eye and ask if we did all we could to leave them a safer, more stable world, with new sources of energy, I want us to be able to say ‘yes, we did’.” …

This is the same imbecile that signed the time sheets of this guy:

EPA official, who pretended to work for CIA, sentenced to 32 months

By Ann E. Marimow and and Lenny Bernstein, Published: December 18 E-mail the writer

A former high-level official at the Environmental Protection Agency, who pretended to work for the CIA to avoid the office, said he was motivated by a sense of excitement and the rush of getting away with something.

John C. Beale, a former EPA senior policy advisor, explained his motivations for the first time in a federal courtroom Wednesday before he was sentenced to more than 2 ½ years in prison for stealing nearly $900,000 in taxpayer funds.

U.S. District Judge Ellen S. Huvelle said Beale’s deception had “made a mockery of working for the federal government.”

Beale, 65, admitted in September that he had skipped out on work for years by telling a series of supervisors, including top officials in EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation, that he was doing top-secret work for the CIA. He was paid for a total of 2 ½ years of work he did not perform since early 2000 and received about $500,000 in bonuses he did not deserve, according to his plea agreement.

Assistant U.S. Attorney James E. Smith said Beale ripped off the government in “notorious, historic fashion” and had become the poster child for problems with the federal government workforce.

He lied about contracting malaria to obtain a reserved parking space that cost the EPA $8,000 over three years. He took trips to visit his family in Los Angeles for which he charged the government more than $57,000.

“His actions are a stain on the work of tens of thousands of honest federal workers,” said Smith.

Standing at the courtroom lectern in a gray pin-striped suit, a remorseful Beale said he had “abused and betrayed” the trust he earned during his long career at EPA “by exploiting flaws in the management system” at the agency.

Beale’s case has attracted political attention, in part because his scheme went on during a period in which he worked for EPA administrator Gina McCarthy, while she led the Air and Radiation office. McCarthy started that job in 2009 and told investigators she began to suspect Beale in March 2012, according to the agency’s inspector general’s office.

If NASA can spend money and effort away from real endeavors to make Muslims feel better about themselves, I guess it’s okay for the EPA to take time away from the environment to create ‘jawbs’, isn’t it?. :o)

We look to climate change as a way to continue to scam the American people and hose the American tax payer.

Why not ask the scientists to state the optimum temperature for the earth.

And then ask them when that temperature was ever achieved.

And then ask them for the ideal level of CO2 in the atmosphere and when that was ever achieved.

“It will create government jobs, which is a drain on the economy, not a benefit.”

A very important point. Robbing Peter to pay Paul does not an economy grow. Having the word job in the same sentence where the word government appears, is an oxymoron. Public servant, could be used and an economic impact statement required for all public service employment.

The cost of government is frequently and conveniently left out of the economic equation.

This evil half witted b**** believes her own lies. The jobs she will destroy are men's jobs such as coal industry. Many women in useless bullshit functionary government roles have zero conscience when destroying men's jobs. This is their war on men. Usually white men of lower socio-economic status than them

Betcha a buck this is the tip of the iceberg. Where in the private, productive sector could you get by with this kind of horse5hit? Only in government do you find people either dumb enough or crooked enough to go along with this stuff.

We currently have a zero sum (or worse) economy. Meaning Gov't can only grow at the expense of the private sector. Useless Gov't hack regulators versus the productive private sector and the people working in it

I had a conversation with a liberal who thinks government jobs improve the economy. He said “government workers spend their money, which goes into the economy and helps boost it” or something like that. But he refused to accept the fact that the money was already in the economy before government took it away and gave it to some government worker to be taxed twice. And there is no wealth creation in government—it doesn’t use one dollar to make two more. It can just throw it away because taxes will never stop coming in.

The Truth Translation: “We look at the myth of ‘climate change’ as an opportunity to grow government and exert power over every business in America.”

Hey 0 bummer, if clean energy was economical, the private sector would have already spent millions and developed an affordable solar power system for homes and business.

There is a home in our area that has a solar power array next to the house. It takes up half the lot and is the ugliest thing in our city. How it passed the zoning board is beyond me.

Global warming is a sick cult with "The Emperor's New clothes" as its prayers; Chicken Little as its Deity; and "1984" as its history (remember global cooling back in the 60s? Eurasia is the enemy. Eurasia has always been the enemy)?

Environmentalists are watermelon Marxists: green on the outside and red on the inside.

Global Warming. A dangerous man made concoction of Marxist ideology and junk science.

Climate change is a fact.

That boy is an idiot. The climate has been changing since the planet was formed, and will continue to change until the day it's a lifeless rock. He and his ilk are grasping for straws, looking for excuses to push a stupid agenda.

The government jobs that the Marxist EPA grows parasitizes the free market causing the loss of economically productive private sector jobs.
