When Congress refused to pass cap-and-trade legislation, the Obama administration directed his agencies to find ways to curb the country’s carbon dioxide output and commit to reducing GHG emissions without legislative approval.
For example, the Environmental Protection Agency is issuing new regulations on power plants that amount to cap-and-trade, just without that pesky “of the people, by the people, for the people” thing.
These rules won’t make a damn bit of difference to global temperatures, which don’t need our help anyway, because we aren’t hurting them.
What these rules will do is precisely what they are actually intended to do, which is drive up energy prices and make Americans poorer.
Why would they want that? Simple. Prosperous people won’t bow to Communism.
