Federal Judge Strikes Down Biden’s Attempt To Force ‘Climate Change’ Into Rulemaking

It’s a good thing Biden never really put his law degree to work, because, he sure loses a lot in court

US judge strikes down Biden climate damage cost estimate

A federal judge on Friday blocked the Biden administration’s attempt to put greater emphasis on potential damage from greenhouse gas emissions when creating rules for polluting industries.

U.S. District Judge James Cain of the Western District of Louisiana sided with Republican attorneys general from energy producing states who said the administration’s action to raise the cost estimate of carbon emissions threatened to drive up energy costs while decreasing state revenues from energy production.

The judge issued an injunction that bars the Biden administration from using the higher cost estimate, which puts a dollar value on damages caused by every additional ton of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere.

President Joe Biden on his first day in office restored the climate cost estimate to about $51 per ton of carbon dioxide emissions after the Trump administration had reduced the figure to about $7 or less per ton. Former President Donald Trump’s estimate included only damages felt in the U.S. versus the global damages captured in higher estimates that were previously used under the Obama administration.

The estimate would be used to shape future rules for oil and gas drilling, automobiles, and other industries. Using a higher cost estimate would help justify reductions in planet-warming emissions, by making the benefits more likely to outweigh the expenses of complying with new rules.

This is the idiotic “social cost of carbon” BS that Obama tried, and got shot down, and would mean much higher costs for energy, which would raise the cost of everything. Rich folks like Biden wouldn’t be impacted, but, the middle and lower classes would feel the pain.

Republican attorneys general led by Louisiana’s Jeff Landry said the Biden administration’s revival of the higher estimate was illegal and exceeded its authority by basing the figure on global considerations. The other states whose officials sued are Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Dakota, Texas, West Virginia and Wyoming.

Well, it’s dead at the moment, let’s see if the Biden DOJ tries to fight back and win in a higher court. Because they really do not care about you people.

    We’ve noticed how the leftists all over even Canada now all sound the same. Watch Ottawa City Councilor Diane Deans clutch her pearls as she yelps about “sedition,” “treason,” “insurrection,” and “an attack on our democracy”:


    These people are all the same. They think because they won an election they become our rulers. They’re public f’n servants and nothing more.

    dOwd is sounding more and more hysterical with his comments the further he devolves from reality. Look at Canada dOwd. They hate fascists too, you got no where to run. You could hide with your kindred commie spirit Trudeau. The two of you could wear blackface and bang each other.

    Let’s go Trudeau, more oppression in Canada like your daddy in Cuba. Crush those freedom wanting Canadian terrorists and insurrectionists. Be another Australia.

      Who has time for childish troglodytes like BrandOn STILL insisting that the criminal Donald John Trump is the “real” president… Keep On Suckin’! LOL!!! https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

        dOwd, you’re so cute. Even trying to find new insults to hurl at me. You are really a lost soul (if you even have one you evil fascist). He’s trying to convince us the the most heavily armed citizens in THE WORLD attempted an unarmed “insurrection”. Just because he’s a moron, pElosi’s a moron, sChumer’s a moron and the rest of the dEmocrat party are all morons dOwd thinks he can project their moronism onto us. Wrong again moron.

        BTW, if brandon actually one why are the dEmoc=rats so afraid of an investigation and audit of the election? why are you so afraid we will show the world without a doubt the election was stolen by fascists installing a senile pedophile into the White House. You’re all liars. The Covid scam is proving it. And you’re all cowards, the Truckers are proving that every day. You fags are afraid of tooting horns!

        Let’s go dOwd, tell us more lies and kill more babies.

    We see how the illegitimate US régime has offered “assistance” to the Trudeau government in exile to end the peaceful occupation of Ottawa by working class Canadians demanding freedom. Isn’t it funny how tyrants seem to sniff each other out even in countries that were supposed to be “Beacons of Liberty” or as the scared shitless lefties cry “our democracy”?

    The propaganda media in the USA don’t have one good word for these working men and women trying to get the right to have their own bodies free and the Canadian media like ours is fully under the thumb of the tyrants that pay their checks.

    How soon before our “elected” leaders turn the military on these common folks? Our own government has already weaponized the DOJ, FBI, CIA and every other deep state agency against the people and now are training for urban warfare. Guess who the “urbans” are?

    Let’s go Brandon, you can join with Canada and kill even more free people to sve your democracy.

    Most Canadians consider tgevprotests to be offensive and inappropriate(please you Google to check polls). The protest is already having a bad effect on fresh foods primarily in rural areas. Cities seem to be still ok. Brandon would you be ok with American truckers doing the same st the Super Bowl? Or causing more problems in our own supply chain? Putting American car workers out of work? Driving up prices ?

    Teach: idiotic “social cost of carbon” BS

    Issues with which Teach disagrees he calls idiotic BS. At one time the Repubs at least pretended to be the party of responsibility, but no more. In reality they’ve always been the party of the monied and corporations, allowing “the people” to eat the scraps as they fall off the table.

    The economic concept “the tragedy of the commons” applies to carbon pollution as well. Wealthy and rapidly developing nations cause global warming and damage the oceans for everyone but refuse to take responsibility. Global warming deniers, well… they deny the problem, and those getting rich are happy to do nothing.

    I’m old enough to remember when Joe Biden did everything he could including lie to America to keep a black man off the SC. Now the hypocrite declares regardless of qualifications he will ONLY appoint a black woman even. Another good choice you racist pigs.

    According to the make up of the latest TV commercials America is now 90% black and gay and all the blacks are hooked up to white spouses. Yet they are all f’n oppressed.

    A 1000% increase in child suicides didn’t get the Democrats to lift Covid restrictions. Bad poll numbers did. Democrats are evil monsters.

    BTW dOwd, there are more super rich Democrats than Republicans.

    Let’s go dOwd, more lies keep that bubble you live in full of leftist shit.
