EPA Energy Restrictions and Copenhagen
The Democrat Senate has put off carbon cap and trade legislation, according to Harry Reid, until the Spring. This is too late for Obama to make a splash at Copenhagen. So, he will have the EPA claim that CO2 is a pollutant and have the EPA put severe restrictions on the use of energy in the US. This is the "operationally significant" energy use restriction Obama has been talking about. He has made some kind of agreement with China, it appears to some, and he and China will announce some restrictions at Copenhagen.
Will we all have to prepare for rolling blackouts? Or, will we be denied the use of our cars on Saturdays? Or will we simply throw more people into the ranks of the unemployed as those businesses which Obama does not like are shutdown? Don't you just love this change and the transformation of America, People? It is coming. If Obama, Pelosi, Reid and their cadres of comrades have their way, this will not be America for long. After all, if CO2 is a pollutant, why should the sovereign rights of the individual be of any significance at all?
Of course, the socialists will push ahead with all of this despite the unraveling of the claimed scientific evidence for catastrophic man-made global warming. This will only prove that the need for the mandate to control the People by controlling their energy use drove the so-called "science,", not the other way around. How revealing!
