    Global warming must be real because the noaa would not have adjusted the offical temperature higher to prove it if it weren’t true.

    My thoughts: This thread isn't about your personal obsession with homos and gay marriage.

    In 2006 there was a SCOTUS decision that ordered the Federal government to monitor emissions and limit, they've had 12 years to do so.

    Massachusetts v. Environmental Protection Agency - Wikipedia

    Second, the Court held that the CAA gives the EPA the authority to regulate tailpipe emissions of greenhouse gases. The CAA provides:


    “The Administrator shall by regulation prescribe (and from time to time revise) in accordance with the provisions of this section, standards applicable to the emission of any air pollutant from any class or classes of new motor vehicles or new motor vehicle engines, which in his judgment cause, or contribute to, air pollution which may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare.”[2]


    The CAA defines "air pollutant" as "any air pollution agent or combination of such agents, including any physical, chemical, biological, radioactive . . . substance or matter which is emitted into or otherwise enters the ambient air".[10] The majority opinion commented that "greenhouse gases fit well within the CAA’s capacious definition of air pollutant."[11]


    Finally, the Court remanded the case to the EPA, requiring the agency to review its contention that it has discretion in regulating carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions. The Court found the current rationale for not regulating to be inadequate and required the agency to articulate a reasonable basis in order to avoid regulation.


    Goddamn right we should sue the EPA.

    I have a much better idea: just get rid of it. Where in our Constitution does it give bureaucracies the right to create laws and assess penalties against the America people?

    Ah, the good ole 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, the most over-turned appeals court in the country.

    Climate change affects the whole planet dipshit. It’s not a “ personal agenda.”
    It’s Trump’s personal agenda to destroy the environment/ planet however.
    Fuck the sleazy bastard.

    The most reversed in history "9th circuit" seems to be working overtime these days . Too bad we can't get the zombies in the Supreme Court to do a days work.
