EPA Concedes: We Canít Produce All the Data Justifying Clean Air Rules

Seven months after being subpoenaed by Congress, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy conceded that her agency does not have - and cannot produce - all of the scientific data used for decades to justify numerous rules and regulations under the Clean Air Act.

But that doesn't mean we can't shut you down with armed, uh, "representatives" of the epa "forces". Typical. They have the power to make the rules and regs, despite not having the data to back it up, and they won't hesitate to use that power. And don't you dare try to question them. Next conservative (if you can actually find one) to declare them null and void goes on the "vote for" list. (plus the un dismissal thingy too. :>})

Just another example of how Congress has abdicated their duties to actually make Law and instead let the bureaucracies decide what the Law is this week and who does and doesn’t have to abide by it.

“McCarthy conceded that her agency does not have - and cannot produce - all of the scientific data used for decades to justify numerous rules and regulations under the Clean Air Act.”

They never did. It’s all been fabrications from the git-go to achieve their Marxist goals.

They should have gotten the vaudeville hook at the start when they went on stage with their fractured fairy tale.

It isn’t about environment, health, safety or any of that. It’s about tyranny and oppressing free peoples until they bend to the will of tyrants. There is no data; there is only wild conjecture, unsupported hypotheses and outlandish unsubstantiated claims.

It, and moves to normalize homosexual perversion, murder of human life under the guise of ‘free choice’, and hysterics about right wing terrorists, are all tools of the tyrant.

Proof positive that the EPA is a tool of liberal political enforcement - doing the bidding of their masters to exert ever increasing control over the “little people”.

Unfund it and disband it.

Can they produce 'ANY' date justifying any of their rules? Or will they stick their SWAT team on you for asking?

It is unfortunate, since we *do* need some level of regulation to ensure safe food and clean environment. But every agency that is supposed to oversee such regulation ends up being a tool for liberal power-mongers.

It is ever the modus operandi of liberals, that they subvert vital functions to their goal of complete domination over every aspect of everyone’s life.

We need strong conservatives, who will roll back these agencies to their constitutional functions, and nothing else.

That’s because the agency is on a political crusade that has nothing to do with clean air.

Good Greif!! You would think that they could gun-deck some logs into the data they need.

These arent very good liberals if they have months to come up with something and then actually tell the truth instead of spreading on a thick layer of BS.

I cant explain a small feeling of encouragement this morning as Dingy Harry is being chummed for shark bait as we speak, the BLM has tucked its tail for the moment, and the EPA cant even make up a bad lie to cover their ass.

I may be completely giddy by nightfall if any more good news is allowed to escape to the masses.

....and all the Republicans said. “Meh”.

Ethics would say they should withdraw all the rules and regulations....or Congress should step in and cancel them wholesale....and cut their funds by 50%.

http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/hazards/gas/climate.php

The most significant climate impacts from volcanic injections into the stratosphere come from the conversion of sulfur dioxide to sulfuric acid, which condenses rapidly in the stratosphere to form fine sulfate aerosols. The aerosols increase the reflection of radiation from the Sun back into space, cooling the Earth’s lower atmosphere or troposphere. Several eruptions during the past century have caused a decline in the average temperature at the Earth’s surface of up to half a degree (Fahrenheit scale) for periods of one to three years. The climactic eruption of Mount Pinatubo on June 15, 1991, was one of the largest eruptions of the twentieth century and injected a 20-million ton (metric scale) sulfur dioxide cloud into the stratosphere at an altitude of more than 20 miles. The Pinatubo cloud was the largest sulfur dioxide cloud ever observed in the stratosphere since the beginning of such observations by satellites in 1978. It caused what is believed to be the largest aerosol disturbance of the stratosphere in the twentieth century, though probably smaller than the disturbances from eruptions of Krakatau in 1883 and Tambora in 1815. Consequently, it was a standout in its climate impact and cooled the Earth’s surface for three years following the eruption, by as much as 1.3 degrees at the height of the impact. Sulfur dioxide from the large 1783-1784 Laki fissure eruption in Iceland caused regional cooling of Europe and North America by similar amounts for similar periods of time.

Even though I have more faith in USGS scientific studies you can still find EPA biased caveats in the USGS material - just sayin’ one hand dirtying the other.

NO we do not need any level of federal regulation. I will take my chances with a free people and the food and environment that they produce over government promises of safety and a clean environment.

I respectfully suggest you read up on how it is possible to be safer and cleaner with government regulations. Here is a hint: You do understand that the EPA enforces the “rights” of companies to pollute?

The government has decided the government can decide what the government wants to decide and the government decided to give themselves permission to decide this.

unbelievable. imposing rules virtually on a whim. And! theres no penalty to the people imposing the rules. Once more a govt employee is allowed to be as wrong as they wish with no recourse to wee the people. Nothing. More than anything we once more see the absolute lack of accountability in government.
