Bad habits are hard to shed. And if you are a bureaucrat at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) who has become accustomed to throwing the agency’s considerable weight around, why turn over a new leaf?
“Malcolm Turnbull’s Murray Darling Basin plan has failed and must be abolished.
The problem affects many regions of the United States and the world; especially places like Florida, New York, and New Jersey.
Please make a quick comment to the Department of Energy right now and let's make our dishwashers fast again.
The danger depends on the dose. Being able to detect drops in an Olympic swimming pool does not pose a health or cancer risk.
The Guardian, Britain’s wildly anti-fossil fuel news site, floated the idea on Tuesday of taking the “no-shower challenge” as a way to alleviate water shortages and heal environmental degradation.
CFACT advisor Larry Bell reports, "If there’s anything that climate crisis theology clerics hate more than fossil fuels, it’s got to be any glad tidings about CO2." New research shows that the switch to fossil fuels preserved more forests to exchange CO2 for oxygen and also returning plant fertilizer to grow more food in the bargain. Thus, any attempt to REDUCE CO2 is counterproductive, given that CO2 boosts water use efficiency.
Friday was not a good day for the Obama EPA. The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals expanded the stay on the Administration's land-grabbing water rule beyond the states that appealed, to the entire nation. The pushback against regulatory overreach is on!
At the eleventh hour a federal court ordered an injunction blocking EPA's water rule. EPA was defiant. EPA bureaucrats declared that they will only halt the rule in the 13 states that requested the injunction.
Twenty-nine states have filed lawsuits against the EPA for redefining the “Waters of the United States,” or WOTUS. Should local streams, irrigation ponds, roadside ditches, and even “connective” dry lands be placed under the authority of the Clean Water Act?
What can be done to curb these abuses and usurpations, and rein in this renegade agency?
It seems incredible, but a single missing word could turn a water law into a government land grab so horrendous even a U.S. Supreme Court justice warned it would “put the property rights of every American entirely at the mercy of Environmental Protection Agency employees.”
Landowners, homeowners, business owners, home builders, construction companies, the forestry and mining industries, and just about everyone else engaged in productive activities in the United States are in the crosshairs of the most far-reaching power grab the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has ever undertaken.
Should the feds seize control over every wet ditch and puddle in the U.S.? Big Green foundations have been lusting after WOTUS power since the late 1990s. People are speaking up and sharing their stories. EPA is sweating. EPA should sweat.
Wyoming ranchers are suing the Western Watersheds Project for trespassing for gathering water samples on private and state land without permission. WWP's stated mission is to rid public lands of all grazing leases. Writer Ron Arnold says their activities constitute "rural cleansing."
