    I thought this bill might be a bit of junk, until I read it and realized it only stops the EPA from enforcing anything based on “climate change”. This doesn’t stop them from regulating greenhouse gases based on scientific data unrelated to climate change, like drinking water acidity or the likes.

    Also, this bill doesn’t stop states from adopting their own rules, as long as those rules are not federally enforceable or part of the federal government. This bill actually gives more power to the states to do as they and their citizens please, which is how it should be anyways.

    I thought they actually changed the wording so that EPA could still regulate the PFCs and HFCs for other reasons. But yeah, I guess they also didn’t want any of their water regs to get messed up, either.

    If only your state’s pollution didnt seep into my state and vice versa.

    Pollution is an issue that affects all states, it doesnt care where the state lines are. The toxic air and pollutants are going to come into your state and make your citizens sicker no matter what your politics or mine are.

    The federal government needs to take all the power away from regulators, and this should just be the beginning. The Congress should be passing the laws and being held accountable to the people.

    I’m pretty sure the Supreme Court authorized EPA to: check if greenhouse gases/climate change posed a harm to public health, and if they did, regulate them.

    I guess I have a general US government question: can Congress do that? The Supreme Court has already given EPA the right to regulate greenhouse gases in relation to climate change, so wouldn’t this bill violate the Court’s ruling?

    Green house gases maybe changing the climate and the data does show a correlation. The EPA should be able to regulate green house gases. Congress is wanting to take away the power so they can get paid. This bill is all about getting campaign funds.

    Or maybe it is about the Federal government limiting its own powers to those defined in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution.

    Every time when many people pay their utility/water bill they are reminded of the dictatorial authority (unfunded mandate/no reps voted for this) given to the EPA – The EPA should be an investigative agency, not a regulatory agency.
    *heritage-org/Research The EPA’s Global Warming Regulation Plans January 20, 2010 – “… The EPA’s attempt to regulate carbon dioxide (CO2), in addition to being the most expensive and expansive environmental regulation in history, would bypass the legislative process completely. Congress should amend the Clean Air Act in order to prevent unelected government bureaucrats from bankrupting the nation…”

    Fortunately, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) and Representative Fred Upton (R, MI 6) have recently introduced “The Energy Tax Prevention Act of 2011”* -- (S. 482 in the Senate & H.R. 910 in the House). This bold legislation would completely strip EPA of its ability to use the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gases, effectively stopping Obama’s back door cap and trade strategy dead in its tracks.

    - patriotupdate-com/Enzi, DeMint Bill Would End Ban on Incandescent Light Bulbs February 19, 2011 “… U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-South Carolina) joined with U.S. Senator Mike Enzi (R-Wyoming) to introduce the Better Use of Light Bulbs (BULB) Act. The legislation would repeal light bulb standards Congress included in the 2007 energy law that effectively bans traditional incandescent light bulbs starting in 2012….In September 2010, the last major GE manufacturing plant for incandescent light bulbs in the U.S. closed in Winchester, Virginia and 200 jobs were lost…“Washington needs to stop picking winners and losers in the marketplace and micromanaging how Americans live their lives,” said Senator DeMint, the lead co-sponsor of the bill…”
