Skip to comments.Busted! – EPA Uses Junk Statistics to Support Junk Science in Crippling Regulations

Its a tough sell trying to push a domestic agenda that will cripple your country. The last things you need getting in the way are facts which dont support your made-up claims.
In more legitimate administrations, the proponents might have had to give up, or scale back on their dubious goals, but not now. Obama does as Obama wants. Theyll just make up more supportive facts they like as they go along.
Its too bad for the talking yard gnome, EPA Secretary Gina McCarthy, that someoneinvestigated the veracity and accuracy of her claims. What they discovered is an absence of any legitimate scientific method in the creation of statistical evidence to support their position. Simply put, shes been caught lying.
Whats worse for her and the Obama spin-meisters, those who exposed and documented the falsehoods cannot be accused of belonging to some right-wing conspiracy. They acted on behalf of the liberal-leaning Brookings Institution.
Brookings fellow Ted Gayer and Vanderbilt University economist Kip Viscusi conducted the study and uncovered the inaccuracies, stating that the EPA shifted to a worldwide benefits approach, leading to a substantial increase in the estimated benefits. The costs quoted were domestic, but they extrapolated the benefits worldwide to inflate the perceived gain, making their argument more acceptable.

It is time to have this entire “Administration” committed to a long-term mental institution for the criminally insane.
About what, in particular?
Ah, the Brookings Institute, Susan Rice’s Alma Mater, a veritable repository of factual information.
What a joke...
I wonder why I am not surprised, I am beyond the point where I believe any thing they say and anything they claim is good for us, I know is just the opposite.
.... Obama is nothing more than the worlds most powerful radical activist and organizer working on a global scale. Everything he does is covered in Saul Alinsky’s Rules For Radicals. For some reason the GOP never seems to grasp this fact ..... and refuse to understand their opponents. They continue think that everything that is happening is just business as usual and nothing to worry about.
Goebbels would be proud!
but who will do anything about it.
Those who are inclined to fight are in a bad spot with a dwindling majority of Americans supporting them.
Too many stupid kids and even more stupid adults embrace The Lie.
you are kinder than I am - tarring & feathering comes to mind for me.
With all do respect, how does some story on the GOP daily or whatever translate to trouble for the DEMs and the EPA? Only if FOXNews or if Cruz or someone else gets it on the news on quote on reference will it matter. Otherwise it is a tree falling in the woods with no one to hear it and no proof it occurred. Sorry, but that is where we are.
they aren’t insane. they know what they are doing and are aware of it, and are doing it deliberately. they are evil, not insane.
The truth about the new wood stove and hydronic boiler rule. And contrary to recent comments by some, in a little over five years, wood heaters (woodstoves) of the kind currently certified and expensive won’t even come close to passing. [Little loss of smugness for some there.]
Residential Wood Heaters New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) Proposal General Overview
This study puts things back in a believable time scale.
Fireplaces and other currently used heaters guaranteed to be banned soon after, BTW. Masonry heaters will have to be filtered. Due to many with those installations posting cheers for the new regs. (”all grandfathered in” and superior to the neighbors), it’s already a nationwide low roar and in the works. Defecate-on-your-neighbor politics is not the way to go.
Oh come on. Its not we can just let everybody have electricity. At least not 24 hours per day. Its time to eat out peas for climate change.
