To get around this, Obama’s EPA proposed a “tailoring rule” that would change the language of the CAA so that the threshold would be 25,000 tons. The legality of this is very much in doubt, as it amounts to the executive branch legislating, and is therefore a violation of the separation of powers.

Also under the Clean Air Act, any “pollutant” that “endangers” human health and welfare, and which is regulated for stationary and mobile sources, becomes subject to National Ambient Air Quality Standards. As described above, the Obama administration is in the process of fulfilling all these NAAQS criteria.

Last week, two environmentalist groups petitioned the EPA to regulate greenhouse gases under NAAQS. Soon the EPA will have no choice. Once the NAAQS kicks in — and it will — the American economy is, not to put too fine a point on it, screwed. The government won’t be able to permit anything larger than a mansion. Taken to the extent mandated under the Clean Air Act, the EPA would probably have to order the shut-down of most industrial suppliers and users of conventional energy.

WHAT IS GOING ON?
THIS IS MINDLESS REGULATION.

It is mindless in the sense that radical environmentalists believe that humans are a hazard to the planet and should be severely limited or eliminated. These are human hating humans.

It doesn;’t matter if it’s a violation of hte seperation of powers- this administration is continually violating the constitution because he knows he can, because he knows noone will seriously stand up against it- by all rights, he shoudl be immediately thrown out of office for violating his sworn duty and oath of office to proetect us from these kinds of fraudulent acts, and the democrats shopuld be immediately thrown out of office for failing to represent our best itnerests by scamming us- criminal charges shoudl be filed, and the government sued for deriliction of duty and engagign in a criminal act agaisnt hte people

But nope- NOONE is goign to stop these criminals, and so they don’t really care whether somethign is agaisnt hte law or not
