Dear Readers: I wept today after reading this Hot Air Post! YouTube is removing all the tremendously entertaining Hitler-parody videos!
I wanted to develop one, based on the shenanigans related to the California Air Resources Board. Attorney General Brown would have taken the Hitler role. It would have been brilliant. Alas, like the parody in the Hot Air post notes, I must now completely devote myself to cat-humor.
Speaking of rogue agencies, Professor Athena placed this gem in my in-box today:
EPA stands in the way of recovery
By Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.)
Not far from my district the Spring Hill plant sits idle. GM pulled out of Spring Hill, once the proud home to the Saturn line, in the wake of its bankruptcy last year. Reopening the plant, either for the production of cars or anything else, will be critical to jobs growth in Middle Tennessee. At a listening session with constituents who live in the 7th district and used to commute to work in Spring Hill, the message was clear: to get the plant up and running again, Washington is going to have to do … less.
Washington, or more specifically the Environmental Protection Agency, poses a significant challenge to any new enterprise that hopes to revitalize Spring Hill and Tennessee’s economy. While Tennesseans are looking for a new owner to come in, take over the Spring Hill plant and get it producing again, the EPA has proposed a series of regulations that would require businesses to certify they have limited carbon emissions or pay steep fines. These regulations are a result of their “endangerment finding” under the Clean Air Act that carbon dioxide and other green house gasses pose a threat to human life.
