Next spring, the Supreme Court will rule on whether the EPA has the power under the Clean Air Act to regulate and assess fees against large emitters of greenhouse gases (primarily CO2) above arbitrary levels the EPA has been setting under the law. This is the first attempt by the EPA to regulate GHG’s, which it considers an “Endangerment” to mankind/U.S. and the world. As you will recall, Congress has refused to enact Obama’s “Cap and Trade” legislation, which would have given the EPA the same powers it is now seeking under its regulatory authority.
Based on my submission below and the attached “new” Amicus Brief, which scientifically supports all plaintiffs’ claims against the EPA and clearly shows the public that EPA is a rogue governmental agency trying to act and operate in a manner that is unconstitutional and totally against Congressional intent.
If plaintiffs lose this battle and the Supreme via the Court ruling for the EPA (which has no strong rebuttal to Amicus scientists’ conclusions and proof), then I believe two things will be clear/happen, which are (1) the Supreme Court has become hopelessly politicized, big government philosophically oriented and is in fact corrupt itself; and (2) the people of this country will be subjected without any defense to the tyranny of the federal government and its agencies, which will have free rein to destroy your liberties as they relate to the key areas of energy, healthcare and the foods you eat. When government controls these three critical essentials of life, then each of us will go from being free to being bondsman subservient to political tyranny.
A multi plaintiff lawsuit was instigated in 2012 against the EPA in the D.C. Circuit Court. The plaintiffs lost given a lottery that enabled three of the most liberal judges on that court to hear the case and rule on the charges. Fortunately, two other judges on the court independently reviewed the case and concluded the evidence presented by plaintiffs should have caused the court to rule against the EPA. Each judge wrote letters stating their position, which provided the plaintiffs the avenue to petition the Supreme Court and get it to agree to review the case in its 2014 session. The Supreme Court agreed to the review after hearings were conducted in October 2013, but agreed only to consider the legality of the EPA’s right to license/charge fees against emitters of GHG’s under the Clean Air Act. This decision by the SC was half a loaf, but still represents a key decision for all Americans.
In contention is the EPA’s right to regulate/initiate fee assessments against GHG emitters, which rights EPA contends to be based on its assertion that GHG’s are an endangerment. For the EPA to be correct, an EPA created GHG “Hot Spot” located in atmosphere over the tropics, which theory anchors their contention GHG’s are an Endangerment, must be found valid by the courts.
Enter a team of recognized scientists and economists, who possess vast collective experience in weather/climate analysis and expected economic affects thereof. The team, who wrote an Amicus Brief in support of the original D.C. Circuit lawsuit, scientifically proved all three major evidentiary standards used by the EPA to prove GHG endangerment were all fraudulent.
Now an expanded scientific team has written another Amicus Brief specifically tailored to address the areas the Supreme Court has agreed to review. Again, that team shows that the EPA’s methodology used to provide the basis upon which it can regulate GHG emissions under the Clean Air Act is totally devoid of the empirically based scientific proof required for the EPA Endangerment declaration to be valid. .
This key legal decision will decide if our future freedoms will be preserved under the constitution or totally lost. It is imperative this story be passed on to many people, including politicians. Hopefully, all of you will agree it is a mandatory task of each of us to spread the word via e-mail, letters, social media et al, for if the people who will be subjected to governmental tyranny validated by Supreme Court consent do not stand up and fight to protect their individual freedoms, all will be lost and the great nation our Founding Fathers gave us in the 1700’s will become just another page in the history books.
I solicit your assistance in spreading this story.
P.S. If we lose this battle next year, the first shoe to drop will be the truthfulness of Barack Obama words in his Presidential Campaign, which were captured on video as follows, “”Under my plan, electricity rates will necessarily skyrocket.”—-as will all forms of energy thereby crushing the American Economy for decades.
