from EPA moves toward climate change regulations
WASHINGTON — In a major reversal of years of government policy, the Environmental Protection Agency on Friday proposed regulating greenhouse-gas emissions to combat global warming.
"In both magnitude and probability, climate change is an enormous problem," concluded EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson in a 130-page report. She found that projected levels of greenhouse gases "endanger the public health and welfare of current and future generations."
The finding came two years after the Supreme Court ruled the EPA had the authority to regulate greenhouse-gas emissions under the Clean Air Act.
Now the battle shifts from whether the gases should be regulated to how. The EPA's announcement puts pressure on Congress to enact its own restrictions this year, rather than leave all decisions up to the EPA.

Now that you mention it, I HAVE noticed that it's getting quite a bit warmer lately. But seriously, this just goes to show how stupid the Establishment thinks we are. If there were any good evidence of man-made global warming, they wouldn't resort to such pathetic stunts to try to con us into going along with their fascist decrees based on lies disguised as science.
