EPA Administrator Optimistic About New Laws

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Lisa Jackson, the new administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency, is re-energizing the agency with a sweeping agenda.

Jackson made waves recently with a ruling that greenhouse gases pose a threat to public health. That opens the way for new — and some say costly — regulations.

Listen to it all from NPR.

Oh, I’m sure those promulgating and enforcing these laws will see their stock rise handsomely.  The rest of us…well, not so much.

Meanwhile: How about the 90% or more of the earth’s total population that still throw tons of CO into the earths atmosphere each day.  True: The US with 3-5% of the earth’s population [I’m not sure of the figure] seems to be responsible for 20-30 percent of the pollution but what about the ~70% or more that we have no control of whatsoever - and it is getting worse!!!

Well, Obama promised during the campaign that he would bankrupt the coal companies through his new ‘taxes’ (later changed to ‘cap and trade fees’).  Just one more promise kept.
