    Whatever happens in this case, it will have absolutely nothing to do with whether or not global warming is a hoax, so don't bother casting it in those terms. This sounds like a question of admin law (which I don't know dick about), so I've got nothing particularly useful to add.

    That is how I first read of it too. I think, though, it is very easy to cast it in the light of it being that global warming is real or not. To me it sounds like Texas and the various other industry groups that filled this petition do not like the new EPA rules, rather than to disprove global warming.

    That's pretty much already taken care of.

    While going throught the courts is a means of forestalling the process, the real problem is that we need to kick our congressmen in the ass to pass legislation preventing the EPA from writing and enforcing regulations on CO2.

    Before ANY government agency is tasked with monitoring CO2, it must be determined that CO2 actually causes harm.

    This has not been shown to date.

    Given that the people people promoting that silly AGW theory are now known to be hoaxers, there's no reason to worry about CO2 at all.
