Texas sues the EPA for using faulty IPCC data to implement climate change legislation
Because the Obama regime has been unable to force through the Congress its cap and trade legislation they are now looking towards the EPA to implement their radical cap and trade agenda through dictate.
The EPA is positioned to implement this attack on personal freedoms and liberties because of a recent ruling by the John Roberts led Supreme Court decision that greenhouse gasses pose a threat to humanity and therefore can be regulated by the EPA.
The Obama regime has pounced on this decision as “Plan B” in its fight to save the planet from man-made destruction and is ready to dictate to the American people new restrictive legislation of greenhouse gasses in an attempt to control every aspect her subjects’ behavior. The Obama regime is perfectly happy in bypassing the constitutional procedure for passing new laws by using a bloated, out of control government agency to force Americans into compliance with its radical beliefs.
But at least one state is fighting back against this power grab by the Obama regime and the EPA. That state would be Texas, which late last week filed suit against the EPA for using the faulty and manipulated data by the now discredited IPCC.
The state explained that the IPCC, and therefore the EPA, relied on flawed science to conclude that greenhouse emissions endanger public health and welfare,” Abbott said. “Because the Administration predicated its Endangerment Finding on the IPCC’s questionable facts, the state is seeking to prevent the EPA’s new rules, and the economic harm that will result from these regulations, from being imposed on Texas employers, workers, and enforcement agencies.
Texas Attorney General–Greg Abbott–brought up the fact that Climategate has gone a long way in calling into question the credibility of the IPCC when he questioned the validity of the IPCC’s argument that car emissions need to be regulated in order to stem the tide of man-made climate change, stating that those carbon emissions that the EPA seeks to regulate are not even found in the emissions of the internal combustion engine.
But the EPA and the Obama regime just don’t give a damn about facts if those facts get in the way of their agenda, and so they are going to try to use a federal agency to force sovereign states into compliance with federal mandates, even if that means trampling on the constitution.
The trampling of states’ rights is nothing new coming from the Obama regime; we have seen this already with the healthcare reform mandates and with the suit the federal government has filed against Arizona’s controversial immigration law. The Obama regime is looking to expand the power of the federal government to unprecedented levels and they must be stopped.
This suit was filed just days ago, and in all likelihood this case will not be heard until after the EPA and the Obama regime have overstepped their bounds and imposed their will on the American people, but that does not mean that this is a futile effort on the part of Texas. This is a necessary step and we can only hope that this move by Texas prompts other states to follow suit.
