Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist,Oath Keeper and Patriot. Is there anything Obama and his team of useful idiots can get right?
Size of the military, wrong, dealing with Putin on the Ukraine, wrong, dealing with Iran on their nuclear facilities, wrong, The Arab Spring, wrong and now the EPA admits that Carbon has nothing to do with rising temperatures.
One thing certain, listen to and watch the lyrics to Paul McCartney’s “Fool on the Hill.
When Obama announced new fuel standards for trucks last week, he said the initiative would cut the harmful carbon pollution responsible for climate change.
BTW…..Where are the temperatures rising?
(Based upon no prospective science, just political science)
But even the government says such action won’t put a dent in global warming.
The EPA’s so-called “temperature change calculator,” which shows how reducing carbon emissions would affect climate change, indicates that a doubling of fuel economy in trucks by 2018 would have virtually no impact on rising temperatures.
Analysts at the Cato Institute’s Center for the Study of Science said the government calculator shows that even reducing total U.S. carbon emissions to zero this year would prevent global temperatures from rising by only 0.2 degrees by the year 2100.
The EPA says its vehicle greenhouse gas rules already in place will save consumers $1.7 trillion at the pump by 2025, and will eliminate six billion metric tons of carbon pollution.
When Mr. Obama visited a trucking distribution center in Upper Marlboro, Md., last week, he called the administration’s new proposed rules on fuel efficiency a “win-win-win” situation.
