Three House Democrats are now pushing legislation that would stop the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from regulating carbon emissions—a decision the agency announced in December — without express permission from the Congress.

This “may” be a bi-partisan piece of legislation in the making. Usually I would run away from a piece of dimoKKKRAT legislation as fast as I can.

Puhleze, Republicans can only hope to block Democrat efforts. You think any bill they propose would hit the floor?

One caveat to that. ANY Republican who supports carbon taxes is toast. I can think of a few that would be good toast.

carbon emissions

Yeah, I heard that term on the radio today.

Carbon emissions would be soot and black smoke. Carbon would still burn. CO2 is carbon that has already burned and the carbon is rendered stable by two stubborn oxygen atoms.

"Carbon emissions" is just a propaganda term to fool people into believing a lie.

It's not like cars are driving around belching soot and black smoke.

Ike Skelton voted for Cap & Trade. Don’t let his latest window dressing fool you...

Ike gives off the impression of being some “old country lawyer.” He has never held a private industry job in his life.

Ever.

There were a few. Mary Bono Mack (excuse: because she was afraid the EPA would do something worse).

Also Mark Kirk, the RINO who is running for Obama;s old senate seat.

But this is a different issue. This bill would stop the EPA from regulating CO2.

Minnesotans are having the damndest time with green energy. Last year their school buses stopped running because ethanol freezes and they went to a higher concentrate of ethanol fuel in their buses.

The funny thing is that at the end of the story the writer points to solar as a possible replacement for wind. LOL

Yes, there were house “Republicans” who voted for cap & tax. 7 or 8 of them, I believe.

Mark Kirk is the IL Rep who just won the primary for Barry’s old Senate seat.

He’s left of most Democrats in free states. He voted for the energy tax bill, gun control (in one of the most restrictive places in the country), and the trillion dollar spending bill.

Mr. Dahlen said workers were busy testing the turbines and, among other things, expected to add warming elements to gear boxes, oil and computers. In a month, he predicted, the turbines will be spinning smoothly.

Ironic ain't it? If "global warming" was real, they would work just fine.

I guess they'd just have heating elements built into the photovoltaic panels to melt the snow - like the rear window defroster on your car. Yeah, that's the ticket...

You are so right.....They are trying to get the stupids out there to think that the 0bama administration wants to get rid of black sooty emissions from smokestacks and trucks and automobiles. What evil schemers! It was always called CO2 emissions. They are waging a war of words

“Earl Pomeroy (D-N.D.) has a bill that would keep the EPA from regulating greenhouse gases at all unless approved by Congress.”

Here's catch, Dems want the CO2 Cap And Trade First. If they are serious, congress would declare CO2 a non pollutant.

“I am not about to let some Washington bureaucrat dictate new public policy that will raise our electricity rates and put at risk the thousands of coal-related jobs in our state,” said Pomeroy.

So the idea is, "We don't want the EPA to raise our electricity rates, we want congress to do it?"

Maybe, but in any case I don't think they have 30 votes for crap and trade in the senate, let alone 60.

Mark Kirk (R.) from Illinois' 10th Congressional District.

Kirk won the Republican Senate primary in Illinois last week and is now running for Senate.

I live in Illinois, it's time to STOP MARK KIRK.
