The control of CO2 emissions was always going to be very difficult in a democracy, as it involves people having to have restrictions placed on their rights and freedoms. It would require a lowering of the standard of living of the bulk of the population. For some time in the USA the government has relied un an unelected agency to bypass democracy and enforce some quite draconian regulations, but now this agency (EPA) has been stopped by the Supreme Court.
BOOM! Supreme Court ruling : EPA doesn’t have power to regulate carbon dioxide – Watts Up With That?
A blog's popularity does not make it a valid source of what is true about the world. Anthony Watts loves to rant on about environmentalists and liberals. I would say his politics comes before science truth.ReplyDelete
The EPA is not blocked completely from enforcing rules on carbon emissions.
A political agenda not really based in science is what has happened. Our supreme court is not immuned to politics. More decisions will come out of this supreme court based in conservative ideology.
