EPA STORM TROOPERS
They found that the regulations would somewhat affect the climate — by eighteen-thousandths of a degree Celsius by 2100.
The Environmental Protection Agency’s new proposed rules, which seek to limit carbon emissions from power plants, would cost the American economy $51 billion, as well as 224,000 jobs, every year through 2030, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates .

With that significant of an economic impact, one would hope the EPA had a pretty good justification, right?



Knappenberger and his colleague Patrick J. Michaels crunched the numbers using an EPA-developed climate-model emulator. They found that the regulations would somewhat affect the climate — by eighteen-thousandths of a degree Celsius by 2100.


Where's RICO?
“We’re not even sure how to put such a small number into practical terms, because, basically, the number is so small as to be undetectable,” Knappenberg and Michaels wrote when they released their findings . “Which, no doubt, is why it’s not included in the EPA Fact Sheets. It is not too small, however, that it shouldn’t play a huge role in every and all discussions of the new regulations.”

That’s not the only time the EPA has used some suspect math. A new report from the Government Accountability Office found that the EPA was calculating how its regulations would affect employment using a study outdated by 20 years that had, even when current, looked at only four industrial sectors. You can read about even more about the agency’s number-fudging here.


ONCE AGAIN: The Environmental Protection Agency’s new proposed rules, which seek to limit carbon emissions from power plants, would cost the American economy $51 billion, as well as 224,000 jobs, every year through 2030, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates .

Writing in Righteous Indignation, Breitbart noted that, “the left doesn’t win its battles in debate. It doesn’t have to. In the 21st century, media is everything. The left wins because it controls the narrative. The narrative is controlled by the media. The left is the media and narrative is everything.”

The 'Climate Scientist' Deal is this: build the model to give the desired result, apply for another grant, get big bucks, rinse, repeat, make a very nice living while the Actually Employed in Useful Work go begging for jobs.

The EPA sub-Deal is write more regs requiring more people to enforce them chasing already miniscule diminishing returns, grow the agency size and budget, which grows your GS grade, make a very nice living while the Actually Employed in Useful Work go begging for jobs.

Bonus Deal: Feel smugly self righteous that you're saving the planet while the Actually Employed in Useful Work go begging for jobs.
I hear there is a volcano cranking up in Iceland. If we time it right, ...uhhh never mind. NSA is watching.

Heh, Really cold weather in the North East this winter. May not have enough power to keep everything going with coal fed power plants shut down. Could be an economic disaster for the region. Looks like snow this late August. Considering how many people in this area voted for Obama my heart doesn't exactly throb with sympathy.
