More government (EPA) takeover! The mainline news organizations, otherwise known as the Government Publishers, have totally ignored the Global Warming scandal. They are pretending it didn’t happen. On with the show- in Copenhagen!
While government stooges are worried about greenhouses gasses from cows no less, it is we the people that are about to be gassed by the government. Can you say EPA?
The Environmental Protection Agency took a major step Monday toward regulating greenhouses gases, concluding that climate changing pollution threatens the public health and the environment. The announcement came as the Obama administration looked to boost its arguments at an international climate conference that the United States is aggressively taking actions to combat global warming, even though Congress has yet to act on climate legislation. The conference opened Monday in Copenhagen.
The EPA is by-passing the Congress which can’t seemingly get its head out of a national health care system.
The EPA said that the scientific evidence surrounding climate change clearly shows that greenhouse gases “threaten the public health and welfare of the American people” and that the pollutants — mainly carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels — should be regulated under the Clean Air Act.
“This is a clear message to Copenhagen of the Obama administration’s commitments to address global climate change,” said Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., lead author of a climate bill before the Senate. “The message to Congress is crystal clear: get moving.”
Under a Supreme Court ruling, the so-called endangerment finding is needed before the EPA can regulate carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases released from automobiles, power plants, and factories under the federal Clean Air Act.
So, “endangerment finding” or not, we’re going to get the GAS in the form of higher taxes and governmental regulation(s).

The world is in such a rapid expansion of knowledge that we are close to entering a tipping point that will forever change earth as we know it.
