    Why stop at batteries? Why not move to personal fusion power systems?

    Think about it, if we all just had small, portable fusion generators, we could power our homes, our cars, our offices! Why we'd be green and energy independant!!!

    What a surprise that those state suing have Republican governors. Not a surprise that they're more worried about profits than the environment.

    This is funny:
    Texas Gov. Rick Perry said the finding would usher in a new era that would destroy his state's ability to provide energy to the rest of the world. Stacked with oil refining and other industries, Texas is the top carbon dioxide emitter in the country and would be heavily affected if mandatory emissions reductions go into effect.
    It's interesting to see Gov. Perry worried about "providing energy to the rest of the world".

    It's emissions from states like Texas that have killed many lakes in the Adirondack Park, in upstate New York. The EPA is the only group that can force these states to take actions so their "second hand smoke" doesn't choke other states, in effect.
    Thank You Barack Obama for Restoring Honor To The Presidency.
    President Obama will rank as one of our greatest presidents!

    Only three states? What's wrong with the other fifty-four?

    This was back in 2007.

    Google EPA vs Mass.
    Yes, we're well aware that the liberal president known as Bush did many wrong things, allowing the EPA to regulate human breath emissions is only one of them.

    ROFL? Texas pollution is destorying lakes in New York... got a link to prove this inane assertion of yours?

    It's GREAT to see these states standing up and saying "Hey, enough of the BS." This has very little to do with the enviroment and everything to do with providin gthe Government (and those whom those in power deem deserving of) with money and power.

    Texas get's hit every May from Mexican fires that really hurt our air quality. Sure, Houston sux, but that's more local geography then anything. the area just stagnates... kinda like LA (for different reasons but still)...

    No surprise at all that no Democrats want to oppose an out-of-control government agency acting outside of it's mandate and deliberately interfering with the economies of the states and nation for no other reason than to expand their authority.

    It's not like global warming is anything real.

    It's not like the citizens of the states run by Democrats need jobs or anything like that, oh no.

    It must be the evil republicans merely wanting to score points with Big Oil by filing a lawsuit.

    Wind patterns in New York State are predominantly from west to east. The geography of the state pretty much prevents pollution from that damned city from affecting the rest of the state.

    New York City ****s on Connecticut.

    Re: Three States Sue EPA Over Global Warming Ruling

    The real agenda:


    NAIROBI, Kenya The head of the International Monetary Fund on Monday proposed a plan for the world's governments to pool together to raise money needed to adapt to climate change, a rare step for an organization that normally does not develop environmental policies.

    IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn said the Fund is concerned about the huge amount of funding needed and the effect that will have on the global economy. He added that the proposal may help efforts to reach a binding agreement on climate change later this year.

    Strauss-Kahn proposed that countries adopt a quota system similar to the one the Fund uses to raise its own money, which could bring in money faster than proposals to increase carbon taxes or other fundraising methods. He only provided a broad outline of the plan, as the organization will release a paper later this week with full details. It is unclear how the proposal will be received.

    The IMF raises funds from its 185 members mainly through a quota system that is based broadly on each country's economic size. The United States is currently the largest shareholder.

    The Associated Press: IMF suggests how to raise climate change funds

    Oh yeah! Global wealth redistribution......Joy!
