Marc Morano at Climate Depot raises a toast to this
(The Hill) An Environmental Protection Agency official said during a Tuesday hearing that a House Republican-sponsored bill would “cripple” the agency’s ability to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on Energy and Power hearing discussed a bill (H.R. 4255) that would eliminate EPA’s ability to offer financial assistance for international greenhouse gas reduction activities.
It’s not a large sum of money, “just” $140 million since 2001 (that we officially know about), but why should we spend money around the world to deal with hotcoldwetdry? We shouldn’t be spending it here, either.
“The EPA believes that HR 4255 will cripple the agency’s ability through grants to address harmful air pollutants that affect both the global and domestic environment,” Hooks said in written testimony. “Air pollution from overseas sources represents a growing problem for public health globally and here in the United States.”
Yeah, we should do away with that dastardly Carbon Dioxide which is …. necessary for life on Earth.
