    Good news.

    But the courts need to do more to bring this rogue agency under control.
    Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.

    Oh my, BO peep's roll-out comes to an end, huh? And on one of his really special issues. Scalia says.....No. You don't just deem fit what you think you can.




    The majority decision, written by Justice Antonin Scalia, said the EPA has to consider the costs of complying with the rules and sent the air pollution regulations back to the agency. "EPA must consider cost — including cost of compliance — before deciding whether regulation is appropriate and necessary. It will be up to the agency to decide (as always, within the limits of reasonable interpretation) how to account for cost," Scalia wrote in agreeing with the industry.

    The decision will have repercussions for other EPA regulations that are key to Obama's climate change agenda. The EPA will now have to examine the cost of compliance for the Clean Power Plan, which is at the heart of the president's environmental agenda.

    The EPA had argued that the rules are both appropriate and necessary regardless of the costs, and that it has the discretion under the law to act as it deems fit in regulating hazardous pollutants.....snip~

    What we really need is someone with the political balls to end the EPA as we know it today, and replace the organization with something that has more accountability to Congress and cannot at their own discretion come up with regulation policy. An advocacy group I do not mind, but how the EPA operates today is damn near Gestapo like all with their own militarized police force.

    If you pee your pants at the mere mention of the word "coal", you've unwittingly placed your crotch under the authority and regulation of the EPA. Your crotch is now considered a "wetland". Serves you right.

    Thank God the EPA will have to put corporate profits before environmental and human health. Now I can finally get my daily dose of mercury vapors again.

    That snark aside, however, I'm open to a compromise solution whereby states can regulate non-carbon air pollution within its own borders. But the moment non-carbon air pollution crosses a state line, then I believe that the EPA has every right to step in.

    Funny, your President wasn't.

    Now, Corporations aren't being forced into a " compromise " that winds up hurting the Middle class.

    Thanks to this ruling , Middle class Americans won't be forced to fund the Progressive scam that is Global warming through higher cost on energy, products and services.

That would be a sobering dose of reality. We must care for the environment, but we need to do it in a way that allows for human development at the same time.
