Democratic Support for EPA Regulation of Emissions Is Declining...

Slowly but surely, Democratic support for the EPA’s regulation of greenhouse gases is waning.  Recently, West Virginia Democratic Sen. John Rockefeller introduced legislation that would prohibit the EPA from going forward with its regulation scheme for the next two years. Sen. Rockefeller, a coal state Democrat, contends that protecting jobs is vital, and that that is precisely what his EPA proof legislation intends to do. Politico reports that Sen.

New United States Senate Report: The IPCC Science Under Heavy Scrutiny

Recently, a number of corporations, associations, states, and congressmen filed suit against the EPA, as they all shared grave doubts about the legitimacy of the science backing the EPA’s 2007 “endangerment finding.” This controversial finding has also led to a congressional investigation by the Minority Staff of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, which recently issued a report scrutinizing “key documents and emails from the University of East A

Arkansas Action Alert

An important vote is coming up in the U.S. Senate that could help shape the climate change debate.   Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) has introduced a resolution of disapproval to challenge the Environmental Protection Agency’s “endangerment” finding, which allows the EPA to treat carbon dioxide (CO2) as a pollutant and therefore regulate it under the Clean Air Act. This is the Obama Administration’s way of setting the stage for cap and trade.
