    Regulation: The New York Times says the EPA should use its authority to regulate our very breath if a Democratic Congress isn't "goaded" into action. Whatever happened to government of the people? It's been a pattern of this administration that if the American people are adamantly opposed to it, ram it through anyway. So it's been with the health care overhaul, offshore drilling restrictions and now the Environmental Protection Agency threatening to become the uber-regulator of the air we breathe. (snip) As Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., ranking Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, noted: "Lisa Jackson, Obama's...

    Climate Fraud: A senator wants an investigation of the false climate testimony before Congress and wants Al Gore to reappear. The illegalities may involve more than just lying to Congress. At a hearing Tuesday by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on the Environmental Protection Agency's budget, ranking Republican James Inhofe told EPA head Lisa Jackson that man-induced climate change was a "hoax" concocted by ideologically motivated researchers who "cooked the science." More than that, Inhofe, in releasing a GOP report questioning the science used to support cap-and-trade legislation, hinted that such activities may be part of a vast...

    EPA administrator Lisa Jackson, in testimony before the Environment and Public Works Committee, made it a point to declare that the agency was not using the IPCC report to develop policy. Charlie Martin at PJ Media reports: During the review of the Environmental Protection Agency budget in today's Senate Environment and Public Works Committee hearing, both Senator Barbara Boxer - the chair of the committee - and EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson distanced themselves from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report (AR4). Boxer and Jackson's statements, in addition to being a striking change in policy, are problematic...

    On the very same day that the EPW minority released a report [PDF] citing “unethical and potentially illegal behavior by some the world's leading climate scientists,” the ruling majority promised “to make policy based on [the same discredited] science.” It was like watching shopkeepers wading through knee-deep water to tape a handwritten “open for business” sign to their cracked and filthy front windows after days of devastating storms. Only the storms in this story carried unusual names.  Like Climategate and Glaciergate and Amazongate. And the shopkeepers were named Boxer and Sanders and Whitehouse and Jackson.  And what they were selling was...

    Environmental advocates and lawyers in Washington were wildly enthusiastic over the recent announcement by Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson that carbon dioxide is dangerous to the health and welfare of Americans. The timing came just before the global warming conference in Copenhagen. Green groups were heartened because they believe they finally have manufacturers right where they've always wanted them: vulnerable to piecemeal regulation by an activist EPA without deliberation by Congress. Lawyers were rubbing their hands together in anticipation of all the litigation that will come their way as companies fight for their lives to be free of burdensome...

    Regulations: The Clean Water Act is being rewritten to give a government bureaucracy the power to regulate every body of water from the Mississippi River to a rain-flooded field. The first casualty may be American coal. With all the concern for the harm that cap-and-trade and regulating carbon dioxide as a pollutant might do to the American economy and free markets, the Environmental Protection Agency is doing quite enough damage with an existing law on the books the Clean Water Act. Congress plans to revise it to make it an even more powerful bludgeon against industry, energy producers and...

    The EPAs finding that carbon dioxide is a dangerous pollutant explains why the administration wasnt too concerned over possible failure at Copenhagen. This was their Plan B. The finding is an environmental Sword of Damocles held over the head of the U.S. with a warning that if cap-and-trade legislation such as Waxman-Markey or Kerry-Boxer is not signed into law, the full regulatory fury of an unelected bureaucracy will be unleashed on the American people and the U.S. economy.

    Now everyone will have to wait to exhale, according to EPA Administrator Lisa Tito Jackson. The EPA's recent ruling that carbon dioxide endangered human health put the agency in direct conflict with power plants, factories, and human breathing. The creation of carbon dioxide is part of the breathing process. The body pulls in oxygen and breathes out CO2. (The two stands for "twice as bad as CO, which is a harmless gas used for killing people.) Jackson said breathing is extremely dangerous for humans. "There is now absolutely no doubt that carbon dioxide is harmful," said Jackson. "For example, it's...

    COPENHAGEN The top U.S. environmental official told a divided U.N. climate conference Wednesday that the Obama administration's moves to "make up for lost time" and cut greenhouse gases would complement congressional action and wasn't intended to bypass recalcitrant lawmakers. The comments by Environmental Protection Agency chief Lisa Jackson came on the same day that the tiny Pacific island nation of Tuvalu which would be among the first victims of rising seas was rebuffed by the conference in an attempt to demand strong action against major polluting countries. Jackson suggested the EPA's decision Monday that greenhouse gases should...

Nor should it. (snip) EPA administrator Lisa Jackson, in a conversation with Sen.

    Here is video of Charles Krauthammer reacting to the news that the Environmental Protection Agency has announced that it deems "carbon dioxide" and other so-called "greenhouse gases" a "threat to public health," specifically because they contribute to Global Warming. Krauthammer says this move will allow the EPA to intrude into virtually every aspect of American life. He said it is essentially a move by the Left to "blackmail" Congress on "Cap and Trade" legislation. He said the EPA's move says to Congress if you don't pass "Cap and Trade," we'll impose the "Cap" part of it by regulation. Krauthammer said...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | November 21, 2009 | Ana Campoy
    A more assertive Environmental Protection Agency is demanding that Texas tighten its pollution rules, drawing the ire of companies and some of the state's political leaders. At the heart of the dispute is an EPA threat to void some of the state's air-quality regulations, which it says break federal law. The agency also is studying whether oil refineries -- of which Texas has many -- emit dangerous amounts of toxins. Texas is the top carbon-dioxide-emitting state in the nation. State regulators say they have built a system that simplifies the permitting process, for example by regulating emissions from entire facilities,...

    It appears that the EPA, under the "RFS2 - Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007," is going to cause problems with how biodiesel will be viewed as a source of pollution, rather than as a means to reduce it. According to the National Biodiesel Board, the EPA has wrongly calculated the negative impact of biodiesel. As a result, the Board would like to enlist the help of supporters of biodiesel in a mail campaign to the EPA and, I assume, others. The points they most want to drive home are mentioned in the following letter: Honorable Lisa Jackson Administrator...

    Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson testified on Capitol Hill Wednesday before a House Energy Committee. She says that the U.S. is overdue for climate and energy legislation. Lisa Jackson, the new administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, is re-energizing the agency with a sweeping agenda. Jackson made waves recently with a ruling that greenhouse gases pose a threat to public health. That opens the way for new and some say costly regulations. Under one possible plan called cap-and-trade, companies would get allotments for carbon dioxide emissions, and they could buy and sell those rights. In a conversation...

    Americans don't need the NRA to tell them that the Barack Obama-Joe Biden administration could spell oblivion for their freedoms: Americans are telling us! Even during the poorest holiday spending season in almost 40 years, with consumer confidence in a freefall, Americans bought guns like they were going out of style —or going to be banned. The month Obama was elected, FBI background checks for firearm purchases increased by 42 percent over 2007, setting an all-time record for purchases in a month. Right-to-carry permit applications soared from coast to coast. It's easy to see why. After spending millions of dollars...

    The Obama administration is preparing to test whether capping greenhouse gas emissions will push the economy into higher gear, or deeper into a rut. The likely subject of the experiment is the ailing auto industry. Later this month, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson is expected to declare that carbon dioxide emissions from automobiles endanger health and welfare because of their impact on the climate. That finding will be a trigger for the EPA to regulate greenhouse-gas emissions under the 1970 Clean Air Act -- independent of any congressional action on broader climate-change measures. A senior administration official familiar with...

    WASHINGTON The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to act for the first time to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that scientists blame for the warming of the planet, according to top Obama administration officials. The decision, which most likely would play out in stages over a period of months, would have a profound impact on transportation, manufacturing costs and how utilities generate power. It could accelerate the progress of energy and climate change legislation in Congress and form a basis for the United States negotiating position at United Nations climate talks set for December in Copenhagen.

Todays announcement should cast significant further doubt on the approximately 100 coal-fired power plants that the industry is trying to rush...
