EPA Head Gina McCarthy Won’t Talk About Keystone XL, Instead Pushes Global Warming Hoax

Gina McCarthy is head of the increasingly powerful Environmental Protection Agency because she understands the Regime’s priorities. Smaller minds might think that an oil pipeline from Canada that could help meet our energy needs, make us less dependent on our enemies, and create tens of thousands of jobs would take precedence over attempting to prop up a hoax that — given what the warmist climate models have promised — is debunked by any given day’s weather report (thus the name change from “global warming” to “climate change”). But Ms. McCarthy sees the larger goal, which is not the well-being of the American people but the ever-accelerating size and scope of the federal government. Consequently,

Environmental Protection Agency chief Gina McCarthy on Tuesday sought to downplay the importance of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, and said the Obama administration will continue to focus on the bigger problem of climate change.

This as the Obama Regime has yet again hamstrung the project that is key to our economic future, for reasons that can be surmised but that are not being shared with the public due to “transparency.”

McCarthy has been responding to urgent questions about Keystone XL by changing the topic with rhetoric like this:

“We have an entire administration strategy that the president laid out that is looking at issues of energy and climate and environment. We want to keep our eyes on the big prize right now, and that big prize is climate change.”

Previously the big prize had been control of the healthcare system. But that objective was virtually guaranteed when John Roberts twisted logic into knots and ruled ObamaCare constitutional. Now it is only a matter of waiting for the private medical insurance industry to collapse as planned. In the meantime, it is on to next objective: a command-and-control, Soviet-style centralized economy. In order to avoid having to go through a civil war like the Bolsheviks did, the global warming ruse is being used to dupe the gullible herd into voluntary compliance.

So transparent is McCarthy that she refused to say even whether she is for or against the pipeline. Given that she takes her orders from someone who has repeatedly proven himself to be hostile to the energy industry, we can assume that she is against it.
