What in the name that is all Holy NOT IN THIS BILL!!! huuuuuuuuuuuh. Ok, I’m alright now.
Congressional Democrats have inserted a “dangerous” rider into an appropriations bill that would allow the Department of Interior to regulate greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S., according to a release from Republicans on the House Committee on Natural Resources.
The rider to the Fiscal Year 2009 Omnibus Appropriations bill, Section 429, enables the Interior Department to withdraw two Endangered Species Act rules within 60 days of enactment.
“This would allow the Obama Administration to change rules without any public notice or public comment period, and threatens efforts to create new jobs in an already strapped economy,” the release states.
One rule exempts thousands of federal activities, including those that generate greenhouse gases, from review under the Endangered Species Act by allowing federal agencies to determine themselves whether their actions are likely to adversely affect endangered species, and whether they need scientific review, according to the Center for Biological Diversity.
The second rule exempts greenhouse gas emissions and oil development, the two leading threats to polar bears, from regulation under the Act.
“If the rules are withdrawn, then any project that increases carbon dioxide or any greenhouse gas emissions could have to consult with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service on mitigation against the potential impacts on global warming and harming of the polar bear, or else face potential lawsuits,” the committee’s statement asserts.
I guess the uncooperative husband/talk radio show host and I will be arrested and hauled off of our mountain because we run a gas generator 18 hours a day. I know I’m hysterical right? Well, not so much. In the “peoples republic of California” they are cutting off all or much of the water supply to many farms, under the auspice that they must save certain species of fish. FISH. Kill the fish, eat the fish, screw the fish! Look the bottom line is that God, yes God,God,God,(all you atheists can leave the room now) has put everything on this earth here for a purpose. He (I did say He) instilled the time bomb of NATURAL SELECTION. So let it be written, so let be said.
