EPA Chief: CO2 Regulations
Are About ‘Justice’ For
‘Communities Of Color’

Daily Caller, by Michael Bastasch

Original Article

Posted By:jackson, 8/27/2014 3:07:35 PM

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed global warming regulations aren’t just about stemming global temperature rises — according to agency’s chief, they are also about “justice” for “communities of color.” “Carbon pollution standards are an issue of justice,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a teleconference call with environmental activists. “If we want to protect communities of color, we need to protect them from climate change.” McCarthy is referring to the EPA’s proposed rule that would limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The agency says the rule will not only help fight global warming, but will also improve public

You are absolutely right, #11. But their pitches and pronouncements are always dressed up in focus-grouped language which appeals to and soothes the sensibilities of half and none-attentive voters like the soccer boobs in Ohio. And we know the MSM will never cut through the crap and properly inform people.

#13 - where is the political will in the country to abolish the EPA? If some courageous (or politically tone deaf)conservative elected official proposed to do so, his/her political career would be over.

These are the same environmentalists that oppose world scale plastics plants at locations near the intersection I-10 and the Mississippi river on the basis of environmental racism. They look at the proposed plant and want to prevent it from being built because of the remote potential that, despite all the permits and regulations, some pollution might one day occur. They look around for someone to be harmed and all they can find are the descendants of those who used to harvest sugar in the fields. And voila, environmental racism. It never enters their heads that perhaps those people might actually enjoy a better standard of living is the plant were built.

So, most "communities of color" would be large inner-cities.

Few of our major metropolitan cities are near enough to the Coast to be affected.

Most who would have flooding problems would be the upper-income liberal white democrats who can afford to live near the beach.

The GOP should be hammering away with how the Democrats (not EPA) are increasing the costs on electricity, food and gasoline(it will go back up if they have their way).

Stop pointing to some faceless acronym like EPA, or even "Congress needs to act".

The EPA is a runaway agency, filled with white liberal democrats, thus, it´s Democrats who are attacking jobs, and the taxable income those jobs/industries would create, which fund government.

September should be a great time of year for sports fans. Baseball pennant races getting dramatic. College football already in top form. NFL finally on every channel every other day of the week. And, of course, Fantasy Football in full swing. It should be a time when Xs and Os are over analyzed and team passions are on full display. Instead, this weekend was all about substance abuse, spanking, and domestic abuse. And ESPN is loving it. Because addressing these weighty topics makes them feel so very important.

The last person who thought Rosie O’Donnell would ever return to “The View” was Rosie O’Donnell. In the spring of 2007, the talk show host opted not to renew her contract with the gabfest created by Barbara Walters, even though her controversial opinions gave the program a ratings boost. Then, shortly before her departure, she got caught in a spectacular fight on live TV with conservative co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck that started over the Iraq War, but quickly turned personal — and went viral.

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.
