SCOTUS blames humans for global warming in split decision

Somehow the majority overlooked that human caused global warming isn't proven

I've tried to think of a witty post on this one for a couple of days. No luck.

The US Supreme Court ruled Monday that the Environmental Protection Agency must consider greenhouse gases as pollutants, in a blow to the White House.

"Because greenhouse gases fit well within the Clean Air Act's capacious definition of 'air pollutant' we hold that EPA has the statutory authority to regulate the emission of such gases from new motor vehicles," the court ruled.

Led by Massachusetts, a dozen states along with several US cities and environmental groups went to the courts to determine whether the agency had the authority to regulate greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide emissions.

"The harms associated with climate change are serious and well recognized," said judge John Paul Stevens as the ruling was carried by five votes in favor to four against.

The Republican administration of US President George W. Bush has fiercely opposed any imposition of binding greenhouse limits on the nation's industry.

Environmentalists have alleged that since Bush came to office in 2001 his administration has ignored and tried to hide looming evidence of global warming and the key role of human activity in climate change.

This decision is already being used to push the global warming agenda.

I have only two words for that.

Dred Scott.

I have never been fond of the Environmental Protection Act, it has been abused almost from the very start.

Let's remember a few things here.

First, "natural" phenomena from forest fires to volcanos produce carbon dioxide.

Second, human caused carbon dioxide is only a small fraction of the total global carbon dioxide.

Third and most important, plants need carbon dioxide. We need plants to provide oxygen and food.
