    wake up people.. contact your Reps and tell them to stop this administration.

    SNIP:

    The far left environmentalists who assumed power in 2008 have decided that Congress simply cannot be trusted to enact CO2-limiting legislation. They have determined it is in their best interest to ignore representative government in order to create a vast, Soviet-style central planning commission that will set industrial policy for the entire nation.

    The Environmental Protection Agency announced Thursday that it will regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and oil refineries next year in an attempt to curb global warming...

    ...The move, coming on the same day the Interior Department unveiled a plan to protect a broader swath of the nation's wilderness, demonstrated that the Obama administration is prepared to push its environmental agenda through regulation where it has failed on Capitol Hill, potentially setting up a battle next year with congressional Republicans.
    The EPA's new restrictions could shutter 20 percent of the nation's coal-fired power plants.


    Is it an overstatement on my part to claim that those who set the Obama administration's environmental policy are members of the flat-Earth, no-growth, Marxist eco-Left?

    No, it is not. Consider that environmental "czar" Carol Browner is a self-admitted socialist who, until assuming her role in the administration, served on a commission for the radical group Socialist International.

    Forget, for a moment, that the United States is the only country on Earth that restricts access to its own energy.

    Forget, too, that carbon dioxide -- which is required for photosynthesis to occur -- can no more be a pollutant than oxygen or water vapor.

    Put aside the fact that the Constitution purposefully and carefully enumerated the powers of the federal government to restrict unaccountable and unelected bureaucracies from usurping power from the people and its representatives.

    Instead, simply put this action in the context of the Democrats' other power grabs:

    The EPA is responsible for most of the decline of industrial and commercial competitveness this country once had.

    It needs to be wiped away.

    And who will be the hardest hit? Not industry -- they'll pass their increased costs onto the consumer.

    The rich? Al Gore can afford it.

    No, the hardest hit will, of course, be the poor and the working poor, and the middle class.

    Good job, Mr. President, you idiot. :clap2:

    So the West Coast states are going to address the issues of GHGs on their own. Well, the rest of the nation has always been about 10 years behind us.

    Kind of great, a ten year warning, hopefully.

    Two more years of Obama bailing out the West Coast, lets see if Obama can keep pumping in the billions.
