With the help of liberal courts, Big Government’s most terrifying agency continues to tighten its death grip on American society in the name of a discredited hoax:
In a surprisingly sweeping win for the Obama administration’s climate policies, a federal appeals court said Tuesday that the Environmental Protection Agency is “unambiguously correct” in the legal reasoning behind its regulation of greenhouse gases.
The Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit strenuously backed the EPA’s finding that the climate-altering emissions pose a danger to public health and welfare. It also upheld the agency’s early requirements for vehicles and new industrial plants while rejecting every challenge brought by a host of industry groups, states and other critics.
In addition, the court approved the EPA’s attempts to narrow the number of companies that must comply with its greenhouse gas rules. And the three-judge panel rejected attacks on the EPA’s interpretation of climate science, including critics’ argument that the “Climategate” email scandal required the agency to reconsider its decisions.
The court even mocked the critics’ claim that the EPA had improperly “delegated” its scientific judgment to outside groups, such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
The UN’s IPCC is well documented to be a complete farce, admittedly devoted not to magically changing the weather but to the redistribution of wealth. But it serves the purposes of authoritarians by making preposterous claims regarding the fate of the planet if we don’t renounce our modern lifestyle and live like Medieval serfs under a totalitarian green oligarchy.
The ruling can only be appealed to the Supreme Court, which has already ruled that our very breath is a “pollutant” that causes global warming and thereby can be regulated by the EPA.
This is going to get ugly.
