US House Republicans Introduce Disapproval Resolution to Block EPA Regulation of CO2

Republican leader John Boehner, R-Ohio; US Rep. Joe Barton, R-Tx, and 84 other Republicans introduced H.J. Res. 77, a resolution of disapproval on the Environmental Protection Agency’s move to regulate carbon dioxide as a pollutant.

Last week, Congressman Ike Skelton (D-Mo); Congressman Collin Peterson (D-Minn), and Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson (R-Mo) also introduced a joint bipartisan resolution of disapproval in the House of Representatives to nullify the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) finding in December 2009 that greenhouse gases (GHG) are a threat to human health and therefore could be regulated under the Clean Air Act. (Earlier post.) Congressman Skelton is the Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee.

US Senators Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) earlier introduced an identical resolution, S.J. Res. 26, in the US Senate. (Earlier post.)



We followed Russia into Afghanistan and perhaps bankruptcy.

Oil Presidents lead us into decades in and over Iraq.

Russia provides a 'clear' example of "no pollution, no EPA, no problem."

How is cleaning up one's combustion and pollution so hard to understand? Many of us clear the table after a meal.



One can wonder who is realy pushing such unbelievable nonsense. There must an article in the Constituition that could be used to stop interested groups from advocating regulations and laws that could harm and kill many. If not, we may be overdue for another amendment.

If left unchecked, lobbies, speculators, embezzlers and other interested groups will destroy a great democracy.


The GOP has viewed any regulation as a burden on business. What is good for business is good for America is their motto. That may be true, but when taken too far it can be a run away disaster. If it ain't broke don't fix it is another of their sayings unless it applies to deregulation, then you can mess with it all you want and not even consider the consequences.

The worst effects of the green loons may be overridden. The AGW exaggerations have collapsed; but the Druids in the The Clueless One's Administration are determined to impose their ersatz religious dogma regardless.

Sanity is perhaps returning to the world.



I was raised on a farm polluted by a charcoal factory.

The air pollution was a constant and the liquid wood tars would flow downstream into our creek, killing our cattle - until finally the EPA stepped in.

I guess you still believe cigarette smoke is healthy.

If you don't believe that combustion byproducts or chemicals harm, start/keep smoking and move next to a refinery.


We are talking about CO2 here, the same gas we all breath out, not pollution.

Air pollution and liquid wood tars have been in our creeks and cigarette smoke is not healthy, but when childish anti-business, anti-profit attitudes are taken too far, it can be a run away disaster.
