EPA Head McCarthy Can’t Say If World Has Warmed

I guess she was trying to avoid perjury charges

(Daily Caller) Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions asked McCarthy to confirm a statement made by President Obama last year that global temperatures were increasing faster in the last five or ten years than climate scientists had predicted.

McCarthy couldn’t answer the question, saying that she only repeats what the climate scientists tell her. Sessions was not satisfied with her response.

“Do I not have the right to ask the Director of EPA a simple question that is relevant to the dispute that is before us?” Sessions angrily asked. “Is the temperature around the globe increasing faster than was predicted, even 10 years ago [as the President claimed]?”

“I can’t answer that question,” McCarthy said.

“You are asking us to impose billions of dollars of cost on this economy and you won’t answer the simple question of whether [temperature around the globe is increasing faster than predicted] is an accurate statement or not?” Sessions shot back.

McCarthy is in now in charge of the EPA, which is slapping regulations around like mad designed to limit “carbon pollution”. Right now we’re waiting for regulations which could make it impossible to build a new coal fired plant in the name of “climate change”. Yet she refuses to say whether the world has warmed in the last 5-10 years. It hasn’t.

    Politicians are lying when they cannot answer a question. To answer would be perjury so they lie by omission. NO ANSWER, NO APPROPRIATION.

    I actually believe that she doesn’t know. Worse, she doesn’t care. She’s only there to push the agenda. She admitted that she only pushes what she’s told.

    I think Congress should rule EPA in, but they won’t. They are afraid and have given up so much of their power already. Congress should be LIVID that an agency like EPA, or any agency, makes laws.

    But then, Congress long ago passed on their legislative authority to agencies. Laws are now called “regulations”. Thus giving enormous power to unelected bureaucrats. Who are unaccountable as well.

    Local elections matter people. Every election matters.

    If you like the EPA and your local militant police force, keep electing Socialists.

    If you like your Dept of Education being armed like a top-tiered SWAT team, and having NSA spying on every word you say, then keep electing Socialists.
