One of Der Fubar’s Führerbefehle Hardest Hit as Glowbull Wormening Scam Takes One to the Nuts

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday rolling back Obama-era policies to curb planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions, a senior White House official said.

The order, called the “Energy Independence Executive Order,” begins a review of former President Barack Obama’s signature program to deal with climate change, the Clean Power Plan, which limited greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.

It’s a glorious day. Another of Princess Precious Snowflake’s diktats shoved under the bus by Executive Order.

The order instructs all agencies to identify all policies that “serve as obstacles or impediments to energy production,” said the official, who spoke on background. The White House provided no timeline for implementing the order, but said that EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt was “ready to hit the ground running.”

Go for it, Scott! We’re pulling for ya! Let’s get Americans back to work, shall we?

The executive order takes other measures to protect the coal industry, such as instructing the Department of the Interior to lift a temporary ban on coal leasing on federal lands that the Obama administration put in place last year.

Another of the old regime’s diktats. Splat!

The order scraps federal guidances instructing agencies to factor climate change into policymaking,

Well that’s good. Aren’t we always told about the wall of separation between church and state?

and to disband a team tasked with calculating the “social cost of carbon.”

Most likely through extended vacations, ahem, seminars in exotic locales, trying to come up with fantasy figures in between mai-tais and lobster fests.

Trump’s executive order will likely kneecap the federal government’s most important policy for reducing carbon emissions. Doing so would also hamper U.S. efforts to meet the commitments made more than a year ago in the 195-country Paris Agreement ? the first global climate deal to include the U.S. and China, the world’s biggest polluters.

No problem, since the Paris “Agreement” was never ratified, so it’s utterly invalid anyway.

Repealing those rules could prove expensive and deadly, costing the U.S. economy up to $600 billion by removing critical incentives to increase energy efficiency, according to the research firm Energy Innovation.

“Could”, “might”, “some say”, here we go again. Ah, HuffPo, trying to convince us that increasing employment and energy production along with lowering costs is somehow going to cost the economy over half a trillion dollars. You’re so funny when you’re having a tantrum.

The CCP’s repeal could lead to billions of tons of carbon being released into the atmosphere, which in turn could contribute to more than 120,000 premature deaths, according to a writeup of the study in Forbes.

It could lead to billions of tons of plant food in the atmosphere (we’re sure the plants, at least, don’t disapprove) and it could, based on yet another hocus pocus “model” that presumes from the outset that babies are croaking left, right and center due to plant food in the air (oddly enough, we don’t ever seem to hear about the massive drops in premature deaths resulting from the past 8 years of War on Energy)… Could, could and maybe.

Then again, it also could not.

What we know is that unemployment and/or inability to keep your home adequately cool or warm rarely has a beneficial effect on life expectancy, but who gives a fuck about facts when there are crystal ball predictions based on the chants of a bogus cult to go with instead?

Of course, we now enter the next phase with hordes of Prozi lawyers trying to keep energy scarce and expensive because, you know, keeping the proles unemployed and freezing in the dark is how you “look out for the little guy.”

Thatisall.

    “according to research firm Energy Innovation . . . .”

    Hmm, sounds like an Entirely Disinterested Observer, doesn’t it? :em03: :em03: :em03:

    Pet Peeve 2,653: journos and bureaucrats who call carbon DIOXIDE emissions [what they're really talking about] “CARBON EMISSIONS.” Which sounds like, you know, SOOT and stuff.

    Dioxide, dioxide, dioxide, dioxide, dioxide!

    sheesh

    I know. It’s painfully obvious to anybody who actually knows what they’re talking about. Carbon, coal, is dirty, sooty, nasty stuff, right? But CO2 is a harmless gas. Well, harmless in the sense that it’s a gas that we’re perfectly designed to deal with as biological organisms. Obviously, if you were to be locked in a room with nothing but that gas in there, you’d suffocate. Again, basic knowledge to normal people, but that doesn’t mean that it is, in and of itself, “harmful”.

    Plants certainly don’t think so (if they were capable of thought). They’d be dead without it. And we’d be dead without them, since they’re our source of oxygen.

    It’s all chemistry, and thus pretty bloody basic to anybody who actually knows what they’re talking about.

    We create CO2 simply by breathing which, last I checked, we’d die if we stopped doing. Yet, even though the simple act of not dying requires us to produce CO2, in our LUNGS, no less, has not caused mankind to die out from terminal coal miners’ lung, we’re still supposed to look at that as a pollutant???

    How about the other “dangerous” gases we’re surrounded by?

    Take water, for instance. H2O. Oh my, it’s chock full of hydrogen! That’s what blew up the Hindenburg! Quick, let’s abolish water!

    It is so idiotic it defies belief.

    What makes it even more idiotic is that the CO2/O2 balance did quite nicely for billions of years, thank you very much. The CO2 content of our atmosphere has been a lot higher in the past than it is today, yet somehow that didn’t result in the death of all organic life.

    Did the last Ice Age end because of mammoth farts? Did the Roman warm age come about because of Emperor Augustus’ millions of legionnaires driving their SUVs all over Europe?

    Has man gone insane?

    Call it dihydrogen monoxide & it sounds worse! It’s also, alongside methane, a greenhouse gas which globalarmists evidently prefer to overlook in their zeal to stop CO2.

    I always wanted to know how the Religionists of the Church of Global, (Algore Ackbar! AlGore be PRAISED!!), planned on stopping the biggest causes of CO2.

    Volcanoes.

    One 5 minute fart from Vesuvius puts more CO2 into the air then all the chanting by all the moonbats in a thousand years.

    Angry, quit trying to confuse them with FACTS!!! you religion denier! how dare you not believe that you are the cause of all evil in the world and that the science is settled…ok, I can’t even type that without laughing.
