I knew this was gonna happen

Over a year ago at one of the semi-monthly blogger get togethers (Cory Crow, Ubu Roi or Kevin Whited can probably confirm this), I stated that Obama would try to get cap and trade passed but would be stymied in congress, so he would instead pass CO2 restrictions by fiat, he would instruct the EPA to declare CO2 a dangerous pollutant and would regulate it without having to get approval from Congress. I'll be damned if my prediction didn't come true in spades. What Congress needs to do now is to cut off every penny of funding for the EPA and hold it's funding hostage. Or alternately pass a law declaring CO2 to NOT be regulated by the EPA much the way tobacco products are not under the purview of the FDA.

End runs can work both ways.

Actually, I do believe the FDA does NOW have purview over tobacco products as those are the bastards that banned my cigarette of choice: cloves.

Everyone who knows me is really happy that didn't happen while I was still actively smoking.
