EPA’s CO2 Regulations are What’s “Comically Wrong”

September 29, 2011 by


By Nicolas Loris The Environmental Protection Agency called a Daily Caller report “comically wrong” this morning.  That is an interesting analysis given that the EPA’s hideously bad global warming regulations are more of a joke than actual regulatory structure.   Either way, the fun and games will soon end when Americans are paying higher energy prices […]

Carbon Dioxide Tax Australia – The Unlitateral Economic Disarmament: We’ll Pay, China Will Play

June 28, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Here another example of how our global warming politicians are unilaterally disarming our economy against far more aggressive competitors. When Europe threatens to whack a carboin dioxide tax on our airlines, under its new green protectionism, the Gillard Government just asks for more punishment:  QANTAS will be forced to lift international airfares […]

Two-Year Delay on EPA Climate Regs Is No Solution

February 10, 2011 by


By Nicolas Loris The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) endangerment finding gives the agency justification to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, most notably carbon dioxide (CO2), under the Clean Air Act (CAA). The EPA already began targeting motor vehicles last year and will start regulating emissions from new power plants and major expansions of large greenhouse-gas-emitting plants […]

If It’s Green, It’s Sold On A Lie

October 17, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt It’s a green scheme and the Victorian Labor Government is behind the infrastructure. So two things you can already assume: it won’t work half as well as advertised, but will cost around twice as much. And, indeed: Findings by the Australian Energy Regulator have undermined the state government’s position on smart meters […]

No Science, Fake Science, And The Destruction Of The Nation

September 20, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba Any scientist who has not sold his soul to the environmental movement will tell you that the reason that greenhouse gases, primarily carbon dioxide (CO2), do not cause any warming is due to the fact that they have to conform to the laws of thermodynamics. The first law states that “energy can […]

The Clean Air Act’s Birthday Is Not Worth Celebrating

September 16, 2010 by


By Nicolas Loris Yesterday marked the 40th birthday of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Air Act (CAA), and environmentalists celebrated by reminding us how beneficial the regulation has been at improving air quality in the U.S. Now the EPA wants to turn the Clean Air Act’s birthday party into an all-out rager by allowing […]

EPA’s Power Grab Endangers The Economy

September 14, 2010 by


By Diane Katz Nowhere in the Clean Air Act does the term “greenhouse gas” (GHG) appear, yet the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is invoking the statute to unleash economy-busting emissions strictures. The agency’s latest power grab is not going unchallenged, however. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has filed a federal lawsuit to force the […]

The EPA Monster

April 19, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba Among the legacies of Richard M. Nixon, famed for the Watergate scandal that forced his resignation, it should be noted that he created the Environmental Protection Agency. There was no vote in Congress. He did it with an executive order. Today the EPA has an annual budget of $9 billion and some […]

Nobody’s Listening

April 3, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba “‘There is an overall sense of frustration that no one is listening,'” pollster Scott Rasmussen said about a problem that has plagued the political party in power for decades.” – Washington Times, April 2, 2010, “Independent voters turn from hopeful to angry.” The article examines the way Obama has lost the support […]

Destroying America With The EPA’s Carbon Lies

April 2, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba Lisa Jackson, Obama’s EPA director, has just announced the agency’s new auto regulations of gas mileage based on global warming. In addition, the agency asserts the right to regulate carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions under the Clean Air Act. There is absolutely no scientific justification for this and, indeed, many observers believe the […]

Outside The Beltway: AZ Rejects Economy Killing Energy Taxes

February 13, 2010 by


By Conn Carroll Utah is not the only Western state that is rejecting the left’s global warming regulation policies. This week Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) signed an executive order stating that Arizona will not endorse any emission-control plan that could raise costs for consumers and businesses. The Arizona Republic reports: Arizona will no longer […]

The Mass. v. EPA Regulatory Cascade: If EPA Does Not Poach Legislative Power, What Will It Cost?

January 22, 2010 by


By Marlo Lewis TonyfromOz prefaces ….. Read this very carefully, and the first thing that comes to mind is that you have to seriously wonder if these people actually sit down and think about what they are doing, before blindly rushing in and introducing Regulatory Measures and legislation that will generate so many Administrative nightmares, […]

EPA Formally Declares CO2 A Dangerous Pollutant

December 8, 2009 by


By Nick Loris Step aside, elected Members of Congress. If you can’t pass cap and trade legislation, The Environmental Protection Agency will move in with massively complex and costly regulations that would micromanage just about every aspect of the economy. They announced today that carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases (GHGs) threaten public health […]

Selling Your House? It Could Be A Green Crime

November 14, 2009 by


By Andrew Bolt The Australian State of Queensland’s flailing government has now made it a crime to sell your house without first doing a big green audit: QUEENSLANDERS selling their homes will soon have to complete a 56-point questionnaire detailing the property’s environmental credentials…. Before being able to offer a property for sale, home owners […]

EPA’s Lisa Jackson: It’s Time The Rest Of The U.S. Caught Up With California

October 8, 2009 by


By Nick Loris at The Foundry The road to Hell was paved with good intentions and so too are California’s green energy initiatives. Environmental activists point to California as the petri dish for the burgeoning of a green economy. Last week, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator, Lisa Jackson, gave a speech at the Governor’s Global Climate […]
