GOP Looks To Block EPA Climate Alarmism Regulations

Obviously, this will drive the greenie-weenies insane, because they think that Someone Else besides themselves should have to suffer

House Republicans wasted no time Thursday[1] in trying to block the Obama administration from acting to stem global warming.

On their second day in power, Republican lawmakers introduced several bills that would hamstring the Environmental Protection Agency from moving forward with regulations to reduce heat-trapping pollution from factories and other sources that they say contributes to global warming. The bills are part of an effort by House Republicans to reverse what they consider job-killing policies of the administration. The bills introduced by Reps. Ted Poe (R-TX), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), would stymie the EPA in different ways.

Poe’s measure would prohibit the EPA from using any money to implement or enforce regulations to impose a limit on global warming gases. Blackburn’s bill would change the Clean Air Act so the EPA could no longer use the law to control greenhouse gases.

Good for them. But, you do have to love NPR’s first paragraph “from acting to stem global warming.” Interestingly, none of the legislation nor protocols nor treaties would do much to stop anthropogenic global warming (not that it actually exists). The EPA’s rules would simply kill jobs and businesses while putting lots of money in the governments pocket, without mitigating the so-called global warming.
