Ed.A wrote:Bypass Congress,


Technically he's not bypassing Congress because the EPA won the right to regulate CO2 under the Clean Air Act after a SCOTUS ruling back in 2007. Any regulations the EPA puts in place are enforceable and I'm not even sure if they can be challenged in court, the only way that will change is if the Clean Air Act is amended which obviously will not happen until Obama is gone. The climate bill the Democrats passed in 2010 would have amended the CAA and stripped the EPA of this power.

What he is bypassing is the will of Congress becsue this would never make it through the House. Even Pelosi doesn't agree, of course this is when she was speaker... I'm sure her opinion has changed.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that Congress, not the Obama administration, needs to address global warming.

Asked if she wants the Obama administration to address climate change through regulations if Congress fails to pass a bill this year, Pelosi responded, "It has to be done by statute."



Pelosi told The Hill that stakeholders need some level of certainty so U.S. policy on climate change does not fluctuate when administrations change. She did note, however, that the Obama administration "can do some things administratively."

War on Coal says White House adviser:

“Politically, the White House is hesitant to say they’re having a war on coal. On the other hand, a war on coal is exactly what’s needed,” Schrag, who leads Harvard University's Center for the Environment, told The Times.

Hardly a revelation. Just remember--keep your friends close & your enemies closer!

Tell me again which branch of government writes laws? And is the EPA part of it?

SCOTUS can say what they want. They said Jim Crow and "separate but equal" was Constitutional, it doesn't make them right.

Heard that the other day. Rolled my eyes. What we really need is a war on idiots. Fund one way trips to the sun for politicians. Bunch of fkn idiots.

As each day passes I pray for that promised piece of space rock to slam into this earth and wipe us out. I've no hope for humanity whatsoever.
