EPA Regulations May Require 230,000 New Employees

All in the name of the climate change hoax*

(Daily Caller) The Environmental Protection Agency has said new greenhouse gas regulations, as proposed, may be “absurd” in application and “impossible to administer” by its self-imposed 2016 deadline. But the agency is still asking for taxpayers to shoulder the burden of up to 230,000 new bureaucrats – at a cost of $21 billion – to attempt to implement the rules.

The EPA aims to regulate greenhouse gas emissions through the Clean Air Act, even though the law doesn’t give the EPA explicit power to do so. The agency’s authority to move forward is being challenged in court by petitioners who argue that such a decision should be left for Congress to make.

The proposed regulations would set greenhouse gas emission thresholds above which businesses must file for an EPA permit and complete extra paperwork in order to continue operating. If the EPA wins its court battle and fully rolls out the greenhouse gas regulations, the number of businesses forced into this regulatory regime would grow tremendously – from approximately 14,000 now to as many as 6.1 million.

Well, those 230,000 new government employees could offset the millions of private jobs that would be lost due to belief in a pseudo-religion that trace amounts of a gas necessary for life on Earth will burn the planet to cinders, despite having higher CO2 atmospheric levels for most of the lifespan of the Earth.

*just to reiterate, yes, the climate has changed to a warmer one from a cooler one, just like it has been doing for the last 7,000 years during this interglacial period. But, it is primarily and mostly natural. And if you anthropogenic global warming chumps really believed, you would change your own behavior. Yet, you don’t. Why?
