Obama Retreats From EPA – Greens Seeing Bloody Red

I got a CFACT newsletter from Marc Morano about the EPA. It reads as follows:

Dear Pierre,

Last week dawn broke on marble head. Obama woke up and killed EPA’s new ozone rule before it could start killing jobs. 

Businesses, job seekers, taxpayers and electric ratepayers all raised a cheer. For the radical Greens, who have grown used to having their every whim met, not so much. 

There’s a full on hissy fit going on in left field.

  • MoveOn said, “This is a decision we’d expect from George W. Bush.” 
  • Natural Resources Defense Council wrote, “Obama has come down on the side of the polluters and those extreme forces who deny the value of government safeguards.”
  • Greenpeace wrote, “Corporate polluters don’t have to worry about dismantling the Clean Air Act, it appears that President Obama is doing it for them.” They announced Greenpeace will use its tremendous financial resources to launch a campaign to pressure Obama to reverse course.
  • The Sierra Club said that they were “appalled” by Obama’s decision and with temerity declared it would “literally cost lives.” They too are spending what it takes to put on the pressure.

That’s just a sample of the tooth gnashing going on. Obama’s EPA surrender was like a warning siren for every radical Green pressure group out there (and there are plenty). They are organizing right now to push their man back into line and keep him there.

CFACT is working just as hard and fast to debunk the coming propaganda wave with

hard facts

Help us compete and win. Let’s start with this cogent analysis by CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Bonner Cohen. Please forward it to as many people as you can. Ask them to keep it moving. Let’s email, post to Facebook, tweet on Twitter and not neglect good old word of mouth.

Hard work, solid facts and good sense can carry the day.  We are reminded again that sunlight is a powerful disinfectant.

So send the “hard facts” link to as many people as you can. Don’t let the EPA start interfering with every aspect of your life and property.

    I am afraid I don’t see the point. I won’t be encouraged until the EPA rescinds its “finding” — read fiat — of carbon dioxide as a pollutant. The climate argument, and the new world of climate legislation, is over carbon dioxide, not ozone. But I am not a politician, and maybe it is all being undone from the beginning, when ozone WAS in the spotlight.

    Greenies see their massive pay cheques being ripped up right in their face (free money off hard working honest tax payers) ……….now maybe all these so-called “do-gooders” (economy destroyers) will have to go out look for a real job like the rest of the world!!!!….Good Luck with all that, there aren’t any because of your “Green intentions”

    O/T Interesting video (Aug 2011) about Global Warming on the other planets. Starts with a little scorn on Al Gore, interesting part starts at 2:10

    I think the issue of reducing ground level ozone is very real . Unlike carbon dioxide, ground level ozone is a pollutant especially in big city centers and down stream from power plants, chemical plants, bigger factories, steel plants, etc., It is formed from the mixing of volatile organic compounds [voc’s],nitrogen oxide and sunlight . It is part of most air quality indicies .The source of ozone is auto exhausts, power plant exhuasts , factories, etc.[same as carbon dioxide] Reducing these real pollutants can be an economic cost and could reduce jobs[shutting down of older plants and facilities ,etc.] If tighening of regulations is too severe or if reductions are demanded too quickly[ as is now happening] when the economy is suffering like now , it could definetly cost jobs . I think this is the issue here.It should not be confused with the issue of reducing man generated carbon dioxide emissions which are harmless.

    The attached provides the chemistry behind ozone and why high levels of ground level ozone can harmful to humans

    As it happens Mr Obama hasn’t retreated from the EPA, it is just a tactical withdrawal on the ozone thing because that is so obviously a job killer that his speech would be pure hypocracy if he’d hadn’t done so.

    But search his speech for the word “mercury”. Read that paragraph carefully. See what I mean?

    Joe Romm commenting on Obama’s Ozone decision on Al Gore’s current tv.
    Just posting this if any of you wants to see the guy; I’ve never seen him.

    They also should stay away from regulating hay for staple feed stocks by declaring it a pollutant http://www.naturalnews.com/033537_hay_pollutant.html
    These people are crazy and if they have their way they there regulations will kill a lot of people.

    Ozone has always been a variable, not a constant, and is only one of more than a dozen climate variables, along with 175 years of carbon dioxide chemistry excluded from the U.N. IPCC climate study, the study only focuses on human caused carbon based oxygen, and nothing else what so every.

    You can not regulate Ozone, Ozone is caused by lighting, and you can not regulate lighting, humans have reduced Ozone by reducing NOx from the tail pipes of our cars since 1972, there would be much more Ozone if the EPA had not required the reduction of NOx.

    The sun converts NOx to Ozone.

    Lighting does not make Ozone, Lighting is the cause of NOx.

    NOx is Nitrogen and oxygen bonded together, at 2500 degrees and hotter, called nitrogen Oxide and Oxides of Nitrogen.

    Sun energy then separates the oxygen and nitrogen, causing Nitrogen and (O3).

    O3 is heavy Oxygen called Ozone.
