White House Bashes GOP Over “Harming Americans’ Health” From “Air Pollution”

Can you guess what the “air pollution” is? Well, I’m confident you can, because you know what one of my major blog focuses is

The White House is bashing a proposed Senate GOP amendment to small business legislation that would nullify the Environmental Protection Agency’s power to regulate greenhouse gases.

“This amendment rolls back the Clean Air Act and harms Americans’ health by taking away our ability to decrease air pollution,” Clark Stevens, a White House spokesman, said in a statement Tuesday night.

So, stopping the EPA from regulating trace amounts of a natural gas, carbon dioxide, necessary for most life on Earth, is harming our “health.” These people really do think you’re stupid.

But, good news, Stevens doubles down on stupid

“Instead of holding big polluters accountable, this amendment overrules public health experts and scientists. Finally, at a time when America’s families are struggling with the cost of gasoline, the amendment would undercut fuel efficiency standards that will save Americans money at the pump while also decreasing our reliance on foreign oil.”

You simply have to live the unhinged Progressive point of view: keeping restrictive fuel efficiency standards somehow saves people more money and reduces our reliance on foreign oil, rather than the idea that makes more sense, namely, drilling for our own oil.

Meanwhile, for those who missed it Tuesday, the GOP voted down a Democrat attempts to buck up climate hysteria. Three times

Ranking member Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) offered a measure stating that Congress accepts the EPA’s finding that “warming of the climate system is unequivocal.”

Is there warming? Yes. But, unlike what the EPA says, now that they are advocates, rather than stewards, it is primarily natural. Rep. Diana DeGette (D-Colo.) and Rep. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) offered similar amendments, both shot down. This has obviously made the True Believers deranged, and pulling out the “anti-science” card. If they truly believed in science, they would continue to call it “global warming.” Alas, no.
