And there's basically nothing Texas can do to stop the EPA. The SCOTUS has already sided with the EPA regulating CO2 which basically means that Texas will bend over and take it.

Bull. Texas can simply not enforce the policy for industry in Texas.

What can the EPA do? They have no enforcement arm, no bodies that can enter industry and forceably compel someone to do something.

And if Texas ignores the EPA regulations, that's what it'll take to make it happen.

Sure, the EPA can slap fines onto the state of Texas, but again, if Texas doesn't pay... how will they collect the fine without someone to forceably compel them to?

In the end, the only way the EPA can enforce this should Texas disregard it... is through brute force. The US military would have to go in and physically force the people in question to comply.

And I would point out that Texas has a state military, not militia, not the National Guard... but a functional state military. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Texas_State_Guard

As Stalin said about the Vatican... The EPA, how many divisions do they have?

Tough talk, but will Texas actually follow through? I highly doubt it, and at this point there doesn’t seem to be any action outside the judicial front that will be deployed by the state of Texas.

You are posting wishful thinking. In the end, Texas is taking it and they don’t seem to be prepared to do much else other than whine about it, IMO.
