Obama Smog Regulations to Cost 4 Times More than Predicted!

The Environmental Protection Agency estimated its stricter smog limits would only cost Americans $1.4 billion a year, but a new report argues the total cost to the economy is likely 40 times higher than agency estimates. The right-leaning American Action Forum says EPA’s updated smog, or ground-level ozone, rule could cost $56.5 billion in lost wages based on economic losses from counties that couldn’t comply with the agency’s 2008 rule. “Observed nonattainment counties experienced Read more […]

EPA Spills Toxic Waste Wrecking Environment – Yet No One Gets Fired

BP spills oil in the Gulf of Mexico and everyone freaks out, condemning the oil producing giant for being so careless. These same environmentalists never praise BP for the ecological work they do as they pour millions of dollars into care and research to protect the environment. Instead the environmentalist cynically calls BP “greedy” and “evil”.  Interestingly, these same environmentalists watch as the government (through the EPA) destroys an entire ecosystem and they say NOTHING. In fact, while Read more […]

EPA Administrator: Global Warming Affects Everything and Everyone We Love

Not only does global warming affect “everything and everyone we love,” it also affects our ability to earn a decent living, according to EPA administrator Gina McCarthy who’s been in the news quite frequently of late ever since her agency oversaw the making of a giant mess out in Colorado. She’s devoted most of her recent coverage to global warming. I’m a little surprised she hasn’t come out and blamed the whole abandoned gold mine toxic sludge thing on global warming. Maybe that’s Read more […]

Gina McCarthy: We’re Past any Debate Over Global Warming

While she’s in damage control mode over the toxic sludge spill that happened in Colorado, the EPA’s administrator Gina McCarthy wants to shut down any debate over global warming. She likened the debate to arguments over whether cigarette smoking actually leads to lung cancer. Just like it’s wrong to debate smoking’s link to cancer, we shouldn’t be arguing over whether mankind is to blame for global warming either. But see, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with debating things Read more […]

Gina McCarthy on Toxic Waste Spill: Oops, Sorry About That

Next time you want to get rid of some toxic waste quickly and easily, just dump it in the nearest river. If the EPA finds out about it, tell them you’re really sorry. It reminds me of what Lois Lerner said when she was being questioned about how many groups were targeted for special scrutiny. She said:  “I’m not good at math.” Granted, she’s a lawyer, not an accountant. But come on. There are many taxpayers who aren’t accountants (most taxpayers are not accountants), and if they mess Read more […]

Shocking News: EPA Has No Scientific Basis for Regulations

I’m sure this will come as quite a shock to our faithful readers, but the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) admitted that it can’t actually reproduce the “science” it has been using for years as the justification for its Clean Air Act. I remember very distinctly the attitude on the Georgia Tech campus toward the environmental “science” department. I’m sure that much of what was studied by environmental science majors was legitimate, especially as it concerned local phenomena Read more […]
