President Obama is enacting climate change legislation from the White House. He is writing the laws and enforcing them through the EPA and the Clean Water and Clean Air Acts. His left-wing mastermind from The Center for American Progress, John Podesta, boasted that Obama cannot be stopped.
Not only is President Obama writing the laws, he is enacting a severe form of cap & trade which has already been struck down by congress. Obama will say congress failed to act and he has no choice, but they did act by saying no to a legislation the majority of American people do not want.
On Monday, John Podesta said the president will continue to use executive orders to pass regulations, regulations which amount to laws, under the Clean Air Act to limit carbon dioxide emissions that they say cause global warming.
“They may try, but there are no takers at this end of Pennsylvania Avenue,” Podesta told reporters at a Monday press conference at the White House.
The Supreme Court has emboldened the administration. A recent Supreme Court decision green-lighted anti-coal regulations which will eventually destroy the coal industry without ever having given them a chance to develop clean coal.
Republicans and some Democrats in Congress have urged the Obama administration to scale back their climate goals because of the adverse impact of new regulations on the coal industry. Coal supporters have portrayed the administration’s actions as the “war on coal” due to huge job losses in coal states like Kentucky and West Virginia.
“We’re getting the living crap beaten out of us,” West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin told President Obama’s nominee to be the country’s top energy regulator last year. “There has been nothing more beat up than coal.”
“They just beat the living daylights out of little West Virginia, but they sure like what we produce,” Manchin told former nominee Ron Binz. “We could do it a lot better if we had a government working with us as a partner.”
Republicans have introduced numerous bills to stop the regulatory overreach by Obama.
A recent Republican effort to derail Obama’s climate goals came from Utah Sen. Mike Lee, who introduced legislation to repeal all energy tax subsidies, which would hurt renewable energy growth.
“Washington should not be using taxpayer money to pick winners and losers in the energy industry,” Lee said in a statement. “Consumer-driven, free-market competition provides a much better way to ensure Americans have access to reliable, affordable energy.
In 2010, Podesta outlined the plan by which Obama could assert his dictatorial powers using executive orders, agency regulations, rules and so on, in a report titled, The Power of the President.
Podesta’s extremely far-left Center for American Progress is funded by socialist George Soros.
Podesta was recently hired by Obama to push through the leftist agenda without congress, by ignoring the separation of powers, one of two important powers that can still limit the Executive outside of SCOTUS. The other power is states’ rights which is also under assault by this administration, an administration which plans to centralize every area of government.
EPA head Gina McCarthy is trying to sell climate change to Blacks by telling them they are most hurt by it. She says this as she is enacting rules that will raise prices dramatically, hurting Blacks who tend to have more poor.
We have had the climate change lies and exaggerations exposed numerous times. We know that in the least it is exaggerated to put through a far-left agenda.
There were a series of emails released in which climate change scientists admitted to lying or exaggerating about global warming in order to enforce an agenda. There was the exposure of the false premise of the hockey stick theory which debunked much of the foundation on which the theory was laid.
A report by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) admitted climate change has not turned out as claimed. The report, “Climate Change Reconsidered”, is worth reading.
Among its findings, the report notes that “no close correlation exists between temperature variation over the past 150 years and human related CO2 emissions.”
Blaming the climate or even the weather on humans is insane. You might as well blame the floods in Colorado on humans instead of the downpours of rain, comparable to 1894 and 1969. Indeed, the U.S. gives ample evidence of greatly reduced events associated with the weather, writes Heartland.
There have been fewer tornadoes over recent decades. It’s been eight years since a Category 3 hurricane hit the U.S. Droughts have been shorter and less extreme than the 1930s and 1950s. And sea levels are predicted to increase barely four to eight inches per century and that may be on the high side. There will be dramatic weather events, but there have always been dramatic weather events!
For more than seventeen years, there has been negligible global warming which is why the climate change fraudsters are now calling it climate change and blaming cold spells on global warming.
Climate change is the new communism and it will continue to be used tyrannically unless the American people vote it out by voting these far-left Democrats out of office.
Remember the quotes that first exposed the lies about climate change by scientists. Here are a few from the thousands of pages of emails revealing the hoax:
”The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.” - Club of Rome, premier environmental think-tank, consultants to the United Nations
“We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination… So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts… Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.” - Prof. Stephen Schneider, Stanford Professor of Climatology, lead author of many IPCC reports
”We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.” - Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation
”No matter if the science of global warming is all phony… climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.” - Christine Stewart, former Canadian Minister of the Environment
It should be mentioned that aside from the control it gives bureaucracies, global warming is a lucrative business.
