Court upholds EPA’s endangerment finding for CO2; Henry Waxman blames bad weather on Repubs in Congress. #rsrh

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson is applauding the new federal court ruling that rejected several challenges to the agency’s climate change regulations.

“Today’s ruling is a strong validation of, in the court’s own words, the ‘unambiguously correct’ approach we have taken in responding to the 2007 Supreme Court decision,” Jackson said, referring to the high court’s 2007 ruling that paved the way for greenhouse gas regulations. …

Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) seized on the portion of the decision that upheld EPA’s “endangerment finding” that greenhouse gases are a threat to human health and welfare. …

Today’s ruling is a message to Congress that it’s time to stop denying science. Extreme events like the wildfires in Colorado and the floods in Florida are going to get worse unless the Republican-controlled Congress changes course soon,” Waxman said in a statement.

    Waxman is correct. It is time to enter the new century and pursue new tecnologies that do not destroy the environment. The need to side with the oil/coal industries keeps this country in an antiquated state while our foreign competitors progress and leave us behind. It is the fear of chnge and innovation as well as the ownership of Republicans by the aforementioned industry that stiffles this country. Why does the common man side with the rich? They are NOT going to spend their wealth creating a job for you and you are not and never will be allowed in their club. They use the common man to promote their agenda which ultimately hurts the common man. Why do you foolishly work against your own self interests America??????

      That’s funny. My upbringing was very working class but I never thought of myself as a “common man”.

      Democrats’ brains are wired around classes, interest groups and constituencies. Class mobility busts their paradigm.

        For the benefit of your readers…. thruthfully …….. how much class mobility have you accomplished? Did you have the benefit of living in a society that has subsidized everything from college tuitions and corporate agriculture. Yup…. There is subsidized money all over the business world beginning with the Federal Reserve. That is the biggest rape of the American taxpayer and the ultimate example of corporate welfare. Where do you stand on the fact that Banks made YOU and ME eat their losses but never caught a break with their profits!!!! How do you justify that? How does Halliburton posting billions of dollars of corporate welfare gains at the expense of my family member lying dead on a fucking dirt street in Afghanistan suite you? Do you honestly believe your Fox news sound bites INFORM America? You go ahead and drink the poison Steve. That group you are protecting doesn’t give a shit what happens to you and I repeat……. They ain’t gonna let you into their class party dude. You don’t belong
        My research would indicate you haven’t entered the “1%”. So why are you self identifying with a group that has effectively locked you out? Is it your desperation to believe that your first million is yet to come? By the way Steve….. “common man” is how philosophers and thinkers and the founding fathers i.e. Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Locke, Lee wrote about humanity. The fact you took the term to mean ordinary….. Shows your are neither well read or educated. So I will cut you slack and move onto a better thought out web site. Nite
