News like this is what will bring Obama and theses agencies down. Totally out of control. It is time to pull the plug.


(TheDC) — The Environmental Protection Agency has said new greenhouse gas regulations, as proposed, may be “absurd” in application and “impossible to administer” by its self-imposed 2016 deadline. But the agency is still asking for taxpayers to shoulder the burden of up to 230,000 new bureaucrats — at a cost of $21 billion — to attempt to implement the rules.

The EPA aims to regulate greenhouse gas emissions through the Clean Air Act, even though the law doesn’t give the EPA explicit power to do so. The agency’s authority to move forward is being challenged in court by petitioners who argue that such a decision should be left for Congress to make.

The proposed regulations would set greenhouse gas emission thresholds above which businesses must file for an EPA permit and complete extra paperwork in order to continue operating. If the EPA wins its court battle and fully rolls out the greenhouse gas regulations, the number of businesses forced into this regulatory regime would grow tremendously — from approximately 14,000 now to as many as 6.1 million.

Maybe they're aiming to regulate the world eventually?

What a crock. First Obama acts like Hoover, and now FDR so we can prolong this depression for ten plus years.

And sounds like Obama is ruling by decree via his agencies too. The wannabe dictator.

I know there's an entire cottage industry around finding anything ridiculous in any US govt document ever created, then supplying it to the insatiable right-wing blogosphere. But if you guys would ever even try to follow the actual story and not just get outraged at something that fits your world-view, you might actually learn something.

It's obvious this number is absolutely ridiculous and just intended to prove a point that what they're being asked to do is too onerous. Here's the next paragraph:

http://www.instituteforenergyresearch.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/tailoring-rule-case.pdf

Based on this analysis, EPA found that applying the literal statutory thresholds (100/250 tpy) on January 2, 2011, would “overwhelm[] the resources of permitting authorities and severely impair[] the functioning of the programs....” 75 Fed. Reg. at 31,514. After considerable study and receipt of public comment, EPA determined that by phasing in the statutory thresholds, it could almost immediately achieve most of the emission benefits that would result from strict adherence to the literal 100/250 tpy threshold while avoiding the permit gridlock that unquestionably would result from the immediate application of that threshold. This phase-in process would also allow EPA time to develop streamlining measures that could eventually ease administration at the statutory thresholds. Id. at 31,517/1.

So basically they are presenting one nightmare scenario of following the guide-lines to the letter, then presenting their own plan to phase in the guidelines while they streamline their permitting process. Govt. efficiency in action ftw. Probably the kind of thing that goes on in govt reports all the time. But hey who cares if it makes a good soundbite, right?!? Woohoo.

Ah why do I try, I'm sure you've all moved on to the next Drudge headline already. Look at those stupid liberals. So dumb. $16 muffins! Everything they do is so stupid a 3rd grader can see it from a one sentence soundbite. Thank goodness the world is so simple and there's no need for nuance in understanding complex political systems.

Is this Obama's idea for job creation?
