Administration Warns of 'Command-and-Control' Regulation Over Emissions (CO2)
FoxNews.com ^ | 12/9/09

Posted on 12/09/2009 12:15:06 PM PST by your local physicist

The Obama administration is warning Congress that if it doesn't move to regulate greenhouse gases, the Environmental Protection Agency will take a "command-and-control" role over the process in a way that could hurt business.

The warning, from a top White House economic official who spoke Tuesday on condition of anonymity, came on the eve of EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson's address to the international conference on climate change in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Jackson, however, tried to strike a tone of cooperation in her address Wednesday, explaining that the EPA's new powers to regulate greenhouse gases will be used to complement legislation pending in Congress, not replace it.

The EPA is ignoring the fact that the earth's temperature stopped rising ten years ago and climate scientists don't understand why that happened:

Climatologists Baffled by Global Warming Time-Out

My view is that temperatures have stopped rising because they are not influenced by CO2 levels and the entire theory of global warming is a hoax. It makes no sense scientifically that the earth can release enough of the solar energy absorbed by the atmosphere, land, and oceans so that temperatures stay very stable for decades, but then a tiny amount of CO2 (relative to the mass of the atmosphere, oceans, and earth's surface) could somehow throw this stable system way out of balance and cause serious warming. That makes no sense whatsoever and the climate "scientists" need to go back to their theory and models and rethink the whole thing because they never gave this theory enough thought and never did enough research into it before hundreds of these clowns jumped on the GW bandwagon, for recognition and profit. The earth has efficient methods of releasing solar energy that can easily handle the tiny amount of extra energy absorbed by CO2, resulting in no change to earth's temperature caused by CO2 levels.

2012 can't get here fast enough, when we can get rid of this dreadful foolish administration and its idiotic bureaucrats. You climate "scientists" who are pushing this theory so irresponsibly, you need to go back to your offices and reexamine all of your scientific assumptions and equations and find the ones that are wrong. Any expert statistician can disprove GW theory just by analyzing the history of the temperature record and CO2 levels. This history shows that CO2 levels are influenced by temperature and not the other way around.

Let me give some assistance to "climate scientists" as they analyze why the earth has stopped warming. Here's an article about research by some top Hungarian scientists who are on the right track:

I say bring it on. 2010 will be a slaughter...we will tie Bambi up in knots from 2011 until the 2012 election. Maybe even put some impeachment talk in the wind. It won’t go anywhere...but might possibly make Bambi think twice about policy and the Marxist Judges he want to appoint.

Someone wake me up!

Di I read this correctly? Obama is threatening Congress and the UN to do something before he has the EPA Czar step in with COMMAND AND CONTROL? These people truly are dangerous macaroons.

I can’t wait for 2010. I’m just afraid with all the tarp money still in Obama’s hands, it’s going to be a wild ride. The man and the Democratic party is extremely dangerous. Obama is the worst thing that ever happened to this country.

The Obama administration is warning Congress that if it doesn't move to regulate greenhouse gases, the Environmental Protection Agency will take a "command-and-control" role over the process in a way that could hurt business.

What if Congress passed a law with a veto proof majority that limits the EPA and explicitly removes the EPA's power to regulate CO2 instead? No, I don't expect that to happen, but it is nice to dream.

The administration statement reads like someone committing a mugging with a pit bull (the dog of peace): If you don't hand over your wallet, my dog will take a command and control role over your leg.

Oh, really?

Well this is me warning this Kommie fu(&tard administration, you just back off your despicable "takeover and destroy America" bullsh*t RIGHT NOW or FACE THE DIRECT CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR TRAITOROUS, DISHONEST ACTIONS.

Do you really think that the 2 million-plus that we marched on D.C. in September was the best we can do? You just keep this crap up, and you'll see just how badly you have underestimated the American people, you petulant, snot-faced, dirt-lipped ACORN reject.

The price you will pay politically, and the shame that will be your endless and only legacy will haunt and hunt you and your DemocRAT Party cronies for decades to come.

Every time a DemocRAT runs for anything for the next 20 years, all we'll have to do is hold up a photo of "Dreams from my Fatwah" and "Chewbacca" stinking up our White House, and it'll be game, set and match.

You Milk'em X Kommies are without question the best thing that could have happened to the snoozing public and the Republican Party. We're awake now. And we're coming for you, no holds barred.

You disgusting pathological assh*les.

The GOP had six years to neuter/dismantle the EPA and other rabid leftist groups. They did NOTHING with the power they had. I don’t see the point in working hard to give them the power again....unless they’ve got someone like Sarah Palin teaching them how to be conservatives, that is.

“A communist coup. Not trying to hide it at all.”

I never thought I would live to see the day when brazen Stalinists took over this country and met so little resistance from others in the government, media, military and law enforcement. They have certainly laid the groundwork well, leaving little choice for the citizenry besides using this as a test case for the Second Amendment (original intent), probably in the near future I suspect.

Feels? Hmm, I would say that the Coup d’etat has already taken place, we are just seeing the after effects. Its like when Hugo Chavez won the election in ‘97 or ‘98 (don't remember which year) and then proceeded to rewrite the constitution illegally and telling their congress to take a hike during the process. Obama is just forgoing any of the formalities. He is the reincarnation of V.I. Lenin.

Obama is correct! Congress must immediately take legislative action to correct this situation with the EPA. They need to pass a one sentence bill that removes EPA jurisdiction over the regulation of atmospheric CO2. Problem solved.

Each and every one of us should ask our elected representatives whether they support this approach. We should ask every candidate for election or re-election to Congress this November whether they would be willing to co-sponsor such a bill.

Mark Levin pointed out on his radio show this eveninig that this incident of executive “warning” to the legisative branch is a decisive point of the evolutionary scale from soft tyranny to a harsh tyranny from the left.

If Obama keeps pushing like his , it is coupe like, banana republic style politics that will destroy him and the EPA.

As Levin said,” WHO do they think they are?” They threaten the people at their peril. “We will get rid of you. You're DONE!” Levin went on to say.
