The second shoe has dropped in EPA's wondering about how to regulate CO2 emissions from power plants. As the shoe dropping metaphor suggests, EPA can now go to sleep for awhile. Everyone else is going to be very busy commenting on this complex issue. The first shoe dropped in October when EPA proposed repeal of the Obama Clean Power Plan. The Agency correctly cited the well known legal arguments against the CPP, especially that it illegally required States to regulate their entire electric power systems, not just their power plants. This meant changing (that is, restricting) people's use of electricity, a favorite [...]
It looks like EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has a good procedural argument for reopening the Obama era false finding that CO2 emissions endanger human health and welfare.
It is time for the multi-billion dollar USGCRP to focus on understanding the sun-climate connection.
Archaeologists make discoveries, present their evidence, engage in discussions and debates that can continue for years, and try to defend their conclusions. Paying attention climate campaigners?
China’s coal capacity increased nearly 8 percent in 2015 — the year after they pledged to cut emissions.
“Uncertainties in the adjustments to our global temperature datasets, the small amount of warming those datasets have measured compared to what climate models expect, and uncertainties over the possible role of Mother Nature in recent warming, all combine to make climate change beliefs as much faith-based as science-based."
Europe’s plans to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by switching from conventional oil to biofuels actually ended up increasing emissions.
Obama administration officials are about to release regulations that could force states and cities getting federal transportation funding to cut carbon dioxide emissions.
The CPC budget features taxes on carbon dioxide (CO2), huge increases in green energy subsidies and new cash to enforce Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations. It would add another $9.9 trillion to the national debt by 2026.

Mr. Lazear is just one of many, often with distinguished careers in other fields than meteorology or climatology, who have bought into the hoax and who declaim the need to reduce carbon dioxide. He’s wrong. The others are wrong.
EPA assumes zero benefits from the burning of fossil fuels while proclaiming heavy costs from increased carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. Now, as Greens push for increasing the alleged "social cost of carbon" from the current 36/ton (up from $22/ton back in 2010) to an astonishing $43/ton, Roger Bezdek and Paul Driessen show that EPA is violating federal law (including Executive Order 12866) by ignoring the massive benefits to society (some $70 trillion in the U.S. alone) from fossil fuels use.
Kelvin Kemm likens the scurrying about to combat the supposed ill effects of increasing worldwide atmospheric carbon dioxide to a nation reacting in fear to rumors of ghosts in the attic and in the addled brains of policymakers. Reality no longer matters to those afflicted, as Pierre Gosselin says, to a mental disorder linked to extreme weather fears.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: CFACT to Supreme Court -- EPA emissions rules violate Constitution's separation of powers They are harmful, arbitrary, capricious and fraudulent. Read the brief.
Carbon dioxide has received a lot of flak for its supposed link to global warming. But Dr. Craig Idso of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide believes CO2 actually provides the planet with more benefits than costs.
