    Yeah, a bunch of politicians should decide things instead of people who actually know something about the subject!

    Congress has charged the EPA with making environmental regulations.

    Yeah, with no real oversight. Does that sound like a good thing to you?

    Happens all the time. What do you think that we should just abolish Congress and the Senate and leave it up to supposed experts that base everything off of personal agenda's and twisted statistics with no way of getting rid of them?

    It was Bush's EPA with a Republican Congress at the time when the EPA made the determination that climate was indeed human induced. Where did Bush and the Republican Congress fail in their oversight?

    Who cares who's "epa" it was? What has Bush and a republican congress got to do with this besides partisan rhetoric?

    The failure of oversight is that the EPA can write legislation. No government office should be allowed to write legislation beyond that of Congress and the Senate. Unless of couse the heads at the EPA are elected by the US population. Then I wouldn't care.

    yes. here in this country we call that "representative government" as opposed to "autocracy".

    not really. it charged them with a narrow band of authority; which the EPA has since sought to expand to include CO2. however, the EPA has no business expanding it's own sphere of authority; if Congress chooses to do so, that is Congress's perogative.

    The EPA doesn't write legislation they write pollution control regulations as they have been charged to do by Congress.
