The Hill ^ | 3/1/11 | Andrew Restuccia

Posted on 03/01/2011 11:26:49 AM PST by Nachum

In 2020, the Clean Air Act will prevent 230,000 premature deaths and result in $2 trillion in economic benefits, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reported on Tuesday. The EPA report, required by law, assesses the costs and benefits of the 1990 Clean Air Act amendments, which overhauled the country’s premier air-pollution law and included restrictions on ozone and a range of toxic air pollutants. “The Clean Air Act’s decades-long track record of success has helped millions of Americans live healthier, safer and more productive lives,” EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson said in a statement.

Don’t you love these unprovable factuals? “will prevent 230,000 premature deaths”

Why doesn’t the GOP come out with their own to show how stupid these are?

Here’s one,

Eliminating the EPA will eliminate “233M premature deaths”, ah, that’s a great idea!!!

"Eleventy-billion people will be murdered if we don't keep people from (insert asinine cause de jure here)!" /EPA.

End the EPA. Now...

Why stop there? I have it on good authority that secret internal EPA documents prove that a millionbajillion lives will be saved, and the dollars generated by the Act would reach to infinity...and beyond.

The story is ‘deeper’ than that. Its not so much they’re liars but they feel completely at ease w/ the concept. I mean they’re saying things which can easily be proven right or wrong in a public venue. Yet, they go about their business as if we’ll swallow the hook, line & sinker. When we don’t roll over they get angry and threaten. What has our govt become? Perhaps better will we let it continue down this road? If we do we’re in grave trouble!!!

No.

The Clean Air Act will save 3,456,430 lives and will add $800 quintillion to the economy.

See, my numbers are bigger, but are equally silly and equally unverifiable.

I think this is referred to as the

As in, I wear these green sneakers in order to prevent [something bad] from happening.

Now that "science" is merely a political tool unfettered by empirical evidence, they feel free to claim anything they please.

In the name of "science," of course.

“decades-long track record”

I would like to know the people’s names that have had their lives saved from the clean air act.

This BS is hilarious but it is frighting that the press and public would continue to eat this up.

Obviously this means they are going to stop the use of chemtrails for population control.

Oh, and the most recent meme on the left (using “science”) -

those who don’t believe like leftists do are “scientifically illiterate”.

Just another bullying tactic from a bunch of bullies. It’s been going on for “a while”...

Last week, there was some jackwagon that posted a picture of a nuclear plant “spewing smoke” as an example of how much greenhouse gas pollution is produced generating energy in America.

The funny double irony is that the jackwagon in question probably thought the “smoke” was actually biproducts of combustion instead of water vapor from a cooling tower,
and the second party of the irony is that water vapor, naturally occurring, makes up 98% of the greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

“why are you against science”

Just as an FYI, this is an example of the logical fallacy of the Complex Question. Another is “have you stopped beating your wife?”

The questionS should be
“Are you against science, and if so, why?”

Oh yeah? Well I'll see his 230,000 lives and 2 Trillion, and raise him 500,000 LIVES and 50 TRILLION!
