EPA’s Lisa Jackson resigns

Jackson thwarted energy production and slowed the U.S. economy at exactly the wrong time

  • Lisa Jackson CFACT

Lisa Jackson, who presided over the promulgation of an explosive growth of regulations at EPA announced today that she is stepping down

Jackson’s tenure at EPA has been marked by controversy.  Jackson is widely viewed as the chief architect of the Obama administration’s “wars” on energy, coal and climate.  Jackson routinely ventured beyond the authority given her by Congress as she broadened Clean Air Act to define CO2 as a pollutant and used trace amount of mercury to thwart electricity generation.

Let us hope President Obama uses Lisa Jackson’s resignation as an opportunity to move EPA back to the constructive center and not as an opportunity to reward Green campaigners for their political support in the recent U.S. elections.  America cannot afford to add to the crushing regulatory burden Lisa Jackson leaves behind her.

    Someone has to make a comment about Lisa Jackson leaving the EPA.

    At 11:15 a.m. December 27, I received a Press Release from the EPA announcing Lisa Jackson was leaving as Administrator for the EPA. As someone with a sense of humour, the first thing that came to mind was a song out of the movie “Wizard of Oz” which played on the following url: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nrEdYyejlj8
    This remark is made as a joke and under no circumstance is meant to imply any ill will toward Lisa Jackson. I met her at a conference in Atlanta, GA in April 2011 and thought she was a very nice person and someone worth knowing. I wish her the best in whatever new job she decides to take. However, I wish she would do something positive for the economy of the United States. Her administration of the EPA is one of the main reasons for the economic maliase that has befallen the country.
    Unfortunately, her successor probably will be worse. Maybe the Texas region administrator who resigned for saying he wanted to treat people who work in the oil and gas industry the way the Romans treated people in towns they occupied 2000 years ago. “First we round up 4 or 5 people and crucify them; then the rest of the people will do anything you say.”

    I didn’t know exactly where to post this but I’m curious of what you guys think of this article. It was released today;

    http://arstechnica.com/science/2012/12/ipccs-climate-projections-on-target-so-far/

    “The reality is that the IPCC projections have stood up well in some ways, and work is ongoing in others. This is the nature of scientific progress.

    Each IPCC report is a summary of the science existing at the time. If there were no questions remaining or progress to make, climate scientists would have moved on to something more interesting. But underlying all the complicated details is a very simple relationship—adding greenhouse gases to the atmosphere raises temperatures and changes climate. That’s what the science predicted, and that’s what we’re seeing play out.”

    Not trying to be a s…t disturber. Just looking for a genuine opinion / rebuttle.

    Shameer, your comment is well made and welcome. The problem with the IPCC is politics. Radical NGOs dictate to the scientists and insist on an alarming summary, which is the only part of the report the media or most people read. Researchers who should be legitimate can’t be relied on when they ensure the report reaches predetermined findings. Many scientists who have been involved in the process have continued within it, or left in in disgust. http://www.climatedepot.com/search.asp?cx=partner-pub-2896112664106093%3Am5ewh74pu5c&cof=FORID%3A9&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=IPCC&sa=Search
