CEI Will File Suit to Block EPA Endangerment Finding
http://cei.org/news-release/2009/12/07/cei-will-file-suit-block-epa-endangerment-finding ^ | December 7, 2009 | Christine Hall

The Environmental Protection Agency today finalized its finding that greenhouse gas emissions endanger public health and welfare and therefore must be regulated under the Clean Air Act. CEI announced that it will file suit in federal court to overturn the endangerment finding on the grounds that EPA has ignored major scientific issues, including those raised recently in the Climategate fraud scandal.

“EPA is clinging for dear life to the notion that the global climate models are holding up,” said Sam Kazman, CEI General Counsel. “In reality, those models are about to sink under the growing weight of evidence that they are fabrications.”

No one cares when unelected bureaucrats can create policy and burden America.

Obama promised to side step Congress and will do so with the EPA and Cass Sustein.

With Govt. Deathcare a certainty, a compliant and willing dominant media, I see the death of the Republic sooner than later.

I foresee only 2 outcomes. One is either their is a revolution backed by the US Armed forces and all those who violated or deny the original intent of the Constitution as arrested and executed or a Republic that slides into a Socialist/Totalitarian State.

I predict the latter.

The real scary part is that the EPA had been working on this BEFORE Obama got elected....this was all planned under the GW Bush Admin.

More proof that the vast majority of Global Warming Fraudsters are also Free Trade Globalists. Very Liberal, and Very Globalist, are both

The EPA and NASA want the fat bank roll they are used to. It is currently thirteen degrees here. So much for "Global Warming."

Be that as it may they are far from giving up. Power is more addicting than any drug.

The EPA was pretty well compromised for good under the Clintonoid socialist Carol Browner. It needed to be closed down and reset from step one, but Bush apparently saw no evil there, let the rat bastards have a field day for eight years..

Is power for the left greater than the loss of liberty for Americans? That is the question.

Being a freedom oriented think-tank CEI receives no public funding, and must rely on private citizens' donations.

They've been doing great work for about 25 years. I support them. You can too at this link.

I posted before I saw your comment. See Post #18 above. I’m sure any amount of moral and financial support would be appreciated by CEI.

"Is power for the left greater than the loss of liberty for Americans?"

I certainly hope not. But there are a lot of suckers out there with the power to vote. Count me as a pessimist trying to be optimistic.

Great. I constantly wrack my brain to come up with something I can do to counter the machinations of Big Government. One thing I do is what I can to financially support CEI, CATO, FR, Heritage, etc., ... another is to attend local Tea Parties and peaceful protests (even went to DC twice for Tea Parties).

BTW, Michelle Malkin started out at CEI.

“The Revolution is coming.”

I really like the idea floated on this board that the energy-producers in this country should just flat shut down, right now, because they now know that they are producing dangerous gases, This would be to protect themselves from future lawsuits...

I’ll bet that this “problem” could be solved, permanently and conclusively, in a week!

You could make up a bogus phone number (one that doesn't work when you dial it).

Your post illustrates reality in 2009: The only energy “revolutionaries” are willing to expend this time around is typing on a keyboard.

You are both wrong.

In 2007 the Supreme Court ruled(5-4) that CO2 was a pollutant and that EPA had to regulate CO2 in accordance with the Clean Air Act.
