EPA Chief Promises to Bypass Congress in Responding to Global Warming

U.S. temperatures from January to July this year were below the 30-year average.
But don’t tell the loons at the EPA.

EPA chief Gina McCarthy promised the agency would bypass Congress in responding to non-existent global warming climate change this week.
She’s done it before.

The Washington Times reported:

BOULDER, Colo. | EPA chief Gina McCarthy said Wednesday that the Obama administration is finished waiting for Congress to act on climate change and plans to bypass the legislative branch in developing a federal response.

Ms. McCarthy, who was confirmed last month as Environmental Protection Agency administrator, cited President Obama’s June 25 speech at Georgetown University, in which he unveiled his Climate Action Plan and vowed to make combatting climate change a priority of his second term.

Mr. Obama gave “what I really think is a most remarkable speech by a president of the United States,” said Ms. McCarthy in remarks at the University of Colorado Boulder.

“Essentially, he said that it is time to act,” she said. “And he said he wasn’t going to wait for Congress, but that he had administrative authorities and that it was time to start utilizing those more effectively and in a more concerted way.”

She insisted that reducing greenhouse-gas emissions could be accomplished without harming economic growth, calling the tension between the two priorities a “false choice.”

A new peer-reviewed paper found that only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis.

Democrats will not be happy until the economy is in complete collapse.
