Celebrate! U.S. Supreme Halts Obama EPA Climate Regs – Skeptics Pleased: ‘This is a major victory’

Climate Depot Publisher Marc Morano, producer of CFACT’s upcoming film ‘Climate Hustle’:

“The U.S. Supreme Court has dealt a decisive blow to President Obama’s so-called EPA climate regulations. The Court may have stopped the EPA cold with the EPA regulations unlikely to be implemented before Obama leaves office. This will give political leaders time to mobilize and ensure that the EPA ‘climate rules’ never see the light of day. Delay is nothing short of a victory.

This is a major victory for U.S. sovereignty, energy freedom, climate science and a blow to economic central planning.

This ruling is first and foremost a victory for science. Halting — even temporarily- the EPA regulations mean we no longer have to listen to Obama officials claiming the rules – which would not even impact global CO2 levels – would somehow lessen extreme storms. See: EPA Claims That ‘Global Action’ On Global Warming Will Stop ‘Extreme Weather’ – Flashback 2009: Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson: “U.S. action alone will not impact world CO2 levels.”Watch: Morano on Fox News on EPA Calling Skeptics NOT ‘Normal’: It’s abnormal to believe symbolic regs by U.S. govt would impact future extreme storms’ – EPA Chief Admits Obama Regs Have No Measurable Climate Impact: ‘One one-hundredth of a degree?’ EPA Chief McCarthy defends regs as ‘enormously beneficial’ – Symbolic impact

Climate sanity may be restored to the U.S.

The Supreme, by stopping the EPA climate rules, has also — at least temporarily — stopped the Obama administration from using the EPA to implement the UN Paris climate agreement. See:UN Paris Agreement Is a Real Tiger: Lock and Load – ‘A device for mobilizing political pressure against opponents of Obama’s climate policies’

President Obama’s climate agenda just suffered a major setback by this ruling. Obama’s attempt to bypass Democracy on climate, may be officially doomed. Obama had been poised to implement the scientifically meaningless ‘climate regulations’ by bypassing Congress through executive orders and by bypassing any potential Senate ratification of the UN Paris agreement. See: ‘The Chinafication of America’: Reaction to Obama Bypassing the Senate with UN Climate Treaty: ‘Obama is taking a page from China’s government’

This is truly a decision — at least for now — to celebrate!”

Daily Caller: ‘The Supreme Court Just Delivered A Crippling Blow To Obama’s Global Warming Agenda’ – ‘The U.S. Supreme Court just delivered a major blow to President Barack Obama’s global warming agenda by halting the implementation of a key Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulation on carbon dioxide emissions. The court won’t allow the EPA to implement its so-called Clean Power Plan (CPP), which aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants 32 percent by 2030. This is a big win for the 29 states suing the federal government to stop a rule expected to cripple the coal industry.’

American Energy Alliance: ‘On EPA Rule, SCOTUS Stands Up For The Little Guy’ – American Energy Alliance President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision to issue a stay on the Obama administration’s carbon rule: “This is a significant victory for the American people and a strong rebuke of the Obama administration’s heavy-handed regulatory agenda. The Supreme Court should be applauded for standing up for American families after the D.C. Circuit failed to do so. The Supreme Court’s decision sends a clear signal to state leaders that they must avoid making any binding commitments until the legal process plays out, especially because EPA’s regulations are looking increasingly legally dubious. States should continue to pursue actions, such as legislation, to stop utilities from continuing their trend of shutting down low-cost, reliable power plants. A ‘do no harm’ approach, meaning avoiding binding commitments, is the best way to protect the American people from higher electricity costs. Now more than ever, states should follow this ‘do no harm’ approach. It is far too rare for the courts or Congress to back the little guy against red tape from Washington bureaucrats. Fortunately, that’s exactly what happened today.”

BREAKING: Obama CO2 rule halted by U. S.

‘Obama’s hidden climate leverage’: ‘Buried in the Clean Air Act is an extremely powerful mechanism – Gives EPA carte blanche to tell states to make drastic cuts to their emissions’ – ‘Buried in the Clean Air Act is an extremely powerful mechanism that effectively gives EPA carte blanche to tell states to make drastic cuts to their emissions. This provision, which can now be used thanks to the completion of the Paris climate deal, raises important questions about national sovereignty and states’ rights — questions that Republicans would undoubtedly use to try and kill such a proposal.’

Even if you believed it, this is a nonsensical plan when it comes to climate with a lot of economic pain.’ – ‘NASA’s former lead global warming scientist James Hansen came and said this plan is ‘practically worthless’ and he said ‘you’ve got to be kidding me’. Obama’s own EPA chief admitted it would have no impact on global temperature let alone impacts on global CO2 levels. It’s pure symbolism.’

Morano on Obama’s climate ‘legacy’: ‘Prez may succeed in ‘winning’ climate war despite fact that skeptics have won every battle’ – Morano: ‘Skeptics are ‘losing’ the battle when it comes to Obama. By bypassing Congress and using Executive Orders, Obama has finally succeeded in pushing the climate agenda into the law in the U.S. now with domestic climate policy through the EPA in place and the newly added UN Paris ‘commitments’, the climate battle may actually be ‘won’ by the global warming establishment.

UN Paris Agreement Is a Real Tiger: Lock and Load – ‘A device for mobilizing political pressure against opponents of Obama’s climate policies’ – ‘Suppose the next president, future Congresses, or even courts try to upend any part of Obama’s climate agenda. Thanks to Paris, 190 foreign heads of state, hundreds of Democratic pols, scores of green advocacy groups, and legions of liberal pundits will be primed to denounce Republicans for breaking “America’s promises” and sacrificing mankind’s future on the altar of corporate greed.’

    When politicians like de Blasio say “…our future is at stake…”, what he & his kind really mean is “Our future of centralized draconian power-grabbing is at stake”. They simply want supreme power over everyone’s daily lives, and the restrictions of how energy is used from whatever source is a significant part of their power-grabbing scheme, by any means necessary. The only “energy power” they’re interested in is their own, the rest of us be damned. “Power for me but not for THEE”.

    This is indeed good news for America and the free world. We need to win one now and then. This should string-out the final decision into the next Administration, where if we are fortunate, will be a Republican President.
