Looks to me like there are some cracks developing in all of the climate change/cap & trade talk. Hmmm.... good thing, guess we're not so crazy after all!
Quote from above article:
Mr. Barraso called the document a "smoking gun" that shows the endangerment findings "were political, not scientific."
The White House legal brief starts by questioning the link between the EPA's scientific argument for endangerment and its political summary, raising concerns about the evidence presented. It also warns of a cascade of unintended regulatory consequences.
The head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's environment and regulatory affairs, William Kovacs, said the memo "confirms almost everything we've been saying on the spillover effects of regulating greenhouse gases." He said the document exposes the administration and the EPA to litigation if it finalizes the endangerment finding and begins to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act, particularly because it was drafted during the deliberation process.
House Minority Leader John Boehner (R., Ohio) said the disclosure of this document "suggests that a political decision was made to put special interests ahead of middle-class families and small businesses struggling in this recession."
Frank O'Donnell, head of the environmental group, Clean Air Watch, called the document "nothing short of a direct attack on the EPA's proposed finding.
"It is very clear from this that the Obama administration contains people who are trying to sabotage the administration's climate strategy...(and) there are a lot of knives within the bowels of the bureaucracy," he said.
Ha ha! Knives.... good, glad to read that there are still some sane politicians who have the guts to question "climate change." I've always believed its political rather than based on science.
Politicians are now realizing that cap & trade will have dire financial consequences for businesses, especially small businesses.
