Texas Sues to Block Bizarre "Global Warming" EPA Rules

The state of Texas today sued the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in a federal appeals court in Washington DC, claiming four new regulations imposed by the EPA are based on the 'thoroughly discredited' findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and are 'factually flawed,' 1200 WOAI news reports.

Lawsuit says science behind 'global warming' claims is junk, discredited...Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott says the rules are illegal ...

Go Texas!!!

This comes today as Obama'a Science Czar told the world that Global Warming is "out" and Global Climate Disruption is "In"

What a bunch of
Junk Science
Sloppy Research
Manipulation of Data

The state explained that the IPCC, and therefore the EPA, relied on flawed science to conclude that greenhouse emissions endanger public health and welfare

I hope many other states do the same, and hurry!

After reading the article as it stands and then this leads to ask several questions that hopefully will be answered in the following months as this court case comes out.
As Texas is challenging the ruling and the authority of the EPA, the question must be, what information do they have that proves that the EPA and the scientists that they have employeed, did indeed that the numbers were manipulated with, beyond the rhetoric that has appeared in the debate itself? The entire global climate stuff has been controversial from the get go, as the federal government and the different scientists look and start to come out with a few things that makes the common person scratch their head and often wonder what all of these people are doing. Is there a controversy and questionable things that have come out, yes there has been. The one that made me kind of think, and it was here recently, was where it was determined that CO2 was considered a dangerous gas and bad for the environment, though anyone who has had basic biology, the kind you would have at the elementary level knows that carbon dioxide, co2, is what plants use to grow.
No one is disputing the fact that humans have an impact on the environment, that has been known for years, but what many people are disputing is how bad that impact happens to be.
There is one other aspect about this that is starting to happen is that the federal government is starting to nudge us to do what they want, alot of the issues today that are starting to hit the general population, were mentioned during the entire climate change debate. Fossile fuels are evil, so there is a nudge to get people and the auto industry to try to change the way they do business, go green. Too many cows adding to the amount of green house gases, (Gee Al Gore, was that you eating that big ol burger?) And now what is coming out, we should eat a healthier and go vegan. Even the propsals that were done in a UN confrence, parts of such are starting to make its way into law, even though we never ratified the treaty.
I am hoping that the AG of Texas, is smart enough to point some of that out in the lawsuit and hold the federal government accountable for its actions. Looks like the next 2 years of the Obama adminstration, part is going to be spent in court.

The "climategate" case is well known and well documented. That is the only proof needed to create a "reasonable doubt".

Keeping Obama tied up in court may be the only way to keep the downward spiral from getting any worse. people allowed far too much crap to be pushed through the system post 9-11, then post financial collapse (it is still happening, but i mean after it started).

these rules won't save us. They will only imprison us.

Thats a really good idea, keep the Feds in court, sue sue sue.
I like it!

Of course, I know it is no laughing matter.

A whole lotta State Nullification going on.

Still working on the parody.

Would be cool if it got as big as the M4GW parodies did.

You have to wonder about the US...

States sueing the Fed.

The Fed sueing the States..

All at a cost to the Tax Payers....

And here I thought the Fed was meant to be an extension of the States...

Yoy think maybe it's just more of the usual "divide and conquer" ploy?

What the feds are pushing in response to "global warming" is the industrial equivalent of the Federal Reserve:

Every major industry would have to buy "carbon credits" through a crooked Federal Reserve-like, unconstitutional entity in order to continue to operate.

It is an attempt of monopolization and the complete control of industry in this country, by elitist bastards.

Even Jesse Ventura covered this well enough in his episode of "Conspiracy Theory":

Exactly, it is all about Carbon Credits and Global Taxes.

In this video, just one of many examples of respected Weather experts admitting that the entire
"Global Warming" Screeching is a hoax!

Yes, keep us posted when its ready, I want to see it!


With all of the hype over CO2 emissions, one fact that is not usually addressed is where all the CO2 is supposed to come from. Most assume that, in order to avoid the ravages of global warming, we need to shut down all our fossil fuel electric plants, park our cars and take to planting trees 24×7. But the assumptions used in the IPCC scenarios are seldom examined in detail. In reality they are based on projected changes in population, economic growth, energy demand, and the estimated carbon intensity of energy over time. A new study in the journal Science calculated cumulative future emissions based on existing infrastructure and found a surprising result. The investigators concluded that sources of the most threatening emissions have yet to be built. In other words, they made the whole thing up—the IPCC’s models are making predictions based on a future that will never happen
