The Lying EPA

By Alan Caruba

June 26, 2009, Investor’s Business Daily

“A suppressed EPA study says old U.N. data ignore the decline in global temperatures and other inconvenient truths. Was the report kept under wraps to influence the vote on the cap-and-trade bill?

“This was supposed to be the most transparent administration ever. Yet as the House of Representatives prepared to vote on the Waxman-Markey bill, the largest increase in U.S. history on 100% of Americans, an attempt was made to suppress a study shredding supporter’ arguments.

“On Friday, the day of the vote, the Competitive Enterprise Institute said was releasing ‘an internal study on climate science that was suppressed by the Environmental Protection Agency.’”

You can read the EPA document at

All this, of course, makes “official” what this commentator and others, many of whom credentialed meteorologists and climatologists, have been saying now for YEARS.

There is NO global warming. The warming that began around1850 was an entirely NATURAL cycle, a response to a mini-ice age that had begun around 1300. There was and is NO PROOF that the presence of so-called “greenhouse gases” such as carbon dioxide had anything to do with the warming that occurred, nor that human activity contributed to it.

The EPA suppression of an internal document that disputes the assertion that underwrites the Waxman-Markey “Cap-and-Trade” bill that passed the House last week demonstrates the extent to which this present administration will go to impose taxation that will further bankrupt a bankrupt nation. A nation which, in the President’s own words “has no money.”

This bill now goes to the U.S. Senate where it must be rejected in whole or the further destruction of the nation will be greatly accelerated by its lies. The Republican leader in the House called it “a pile of sh-t”, a blunt and accurate assessment.

It is based on the great global warming lie. It is based on the many global warming lies that have been generated by the United Nations Environmental Program; the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

It is based on the same lies being told over and over again by environmental organizations like Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace, and the Sierra Club, and then repeated daily, weekly, monthly in the nation’s brain-dead media.

On a broad spectrum of critical issues, the EPA determines the outcome and then cooks the books to construct a reason to take action. It is an environmental Gestapo that has wreaked havoc with corporations and private citizens.

The lead author of the suppressed report was Alan Carlin, an MIT-educated senior research analyst and 38-year non-political appointee assigned only to perform fact and science-based analysis regardless of who occupies the White House.

The “facts”, the science, never supported the global warming hoax. That is why those who disputed it were first called skeptics and later called “deniers”, echoing the label given those who denied the Holocaust. In some liberal circles, there have even been calls to jail or kill global warming “deniers.”

The New York Times columnist, Paul Krugman, calls those who doubt global warming guilty of “treason against the planet.” Krugman, an economist, pontificates about meteorological science while offering economic advice that would further wreck the nation’s already tenuous economic foundations.

The EPA is so boldfaced in its lies that it claims that carbon dioxide is a “pollutant” and, of course, it intends to regulate it, but it is an atmospheric gas on which all vegetation depends. Without it, all vegetation dies and then everything else dies.

Carbon dioxide is produced, in part, by the use of energy and any restriction on energy production and use is a restriction on our modern lifestyle and our economy. Its taxation is at the heart of “Cap-and-Trade.” It would increase the cost of everything.

Global warming is the Big Lie that the EPA, the environmentalists, the Democrats and the President are putting forth as justification to unjustly impose a “Cap-and-Trade” tax. It must be defeated when it comes to a vote in the Senate.

...if what they voted on, isn't what is enforced, do businesses/industries have to comply?

Apparently the voting wasn't on any existing bill, but on a BLANK CHECK that hasn't even been filled in yet! H/T-FloppingAces

One might think that would be a great reason to challenge it in court. I mean, it just doesn't sound legal to me, but then I'm not a lawyer, so whaddoiknow?

We have reached a point at which the Congress; in this case the House, is totally failing to fulfill their responsibility to read and debate legislation available in a timely fashion. Cap-and-Trade is a travesty of how the business of the House is supposed to be conducted, but fairly typical of how the Democrats, when in power, operate.

Guess we have to go back to Horse and Buggy days.

Obama claimed that the average American would not bear the brunt of this historic tax-increase… claiming instead that “It is paid for by the polluters who currently emit dangerous carbon emissions.”

Just compare this outrageous falsehood to Ronald Reagans’ timeless wisdom:

“The most dangerous myth is the demagoguery that business can be made to pay a larger share, thus relieving the individual. Politicians preaching this are either deliberately dishonest, or economically illiterate, and either one should scare us.

…Only people pay taxes, and people pay as consumers every tax that is assessed against a business.”

And after the way the rammed this through the House with little debate, without legislators even reading it… and while quarantining the GOP from any meaningful input whatsoever, any foolhardy individuals who still believe Obama’s threadbare “bipartisanship” spiel ought to have their head examined.

I have followed this story from the beginning and it was obvious from the beginning that AGW was nothing more than another bogus power grabbing greenie scare to promote an irrational and misanthropic agenda.

Well, just in case no one saw it, Glen Beck had the scientist who created the report in question. The simplicity of the report makes it ABSOLUTELY clear that all the AGW CO2 talk is claptrap. The report also makes it so obvious that anyone who has made even the slightest effort to understand the issues MUST know that Cap and Trade will not do anything but destroy the economy.

In the name of the environment we are seeing so many people in prominent positions in so many areas of life making so many decisions that are so clearly detrimental to their own well being because they want to be "GREEN", that we have lost our minds.

Great article! It is really interesting at how it has changed from science to a belief- where facts that are not matching what they want are being hidden.

I am annoyed at how the “in crowd” tried to shoot down the facts from The Great Global Warming Swindle as addressed in this article:
Climate Change Swindlers and the Political Agenda

Seeing how political it has become and how even Enron tried to cash in on pushing for future carbon trading made me look into this. Too bad the side for CO2 caused global warming plays dirty and is in power!
