The Obama administration made major waves on Tuesday when it proposed the first ever federal regulations that would require the nation’s oil and gas industry to cut emissions of methane. Congressional Republicans contend it's further proof of the administration’s collusion with environmental lobbyists to advance its climate-change agenda despite the lack of science to support it and regardless of the significant economic impact it is expected to have.

The EPA’s toxic mega-spill of millions of gallons of heavy metal-laden wastewater into Colorado’s Animas River is not EPA Chief Gina McCarthy’s only problem; a congressional committee is calling her on the carpet for lying during testimony to Congress.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has made a major mess of the Animas River in Colorado and beyond, and now, some analysts are suggesting it may have even been a deliberate plot to bilk taxpayers and shut down mining in the region. Critics of the EPA are pointing to a letter by geologist Dave Taylor, published a week before the toxic spill, warning residents to protect themselves from the EPA and predicting a similar disaster purposely caused by the controversial agency. Now, almost as if on cue, the EPA is seeking more money and more power to deal with the crisis that it created. Regardless of whether the environmental disaster was caused “accidentally” through gross negligence or on purpose, which at this point is impossible to know, critics and even some lawmakers say it is time to hold the EPA accountable — not hand it a bigger budget.
Alarmists pushing the UN’s anti-carbon climate change agenda claim we are already “Halfway to Hell,” i.e., the arbitrary 2-degrees C above pre-industrial global temperatures that will supposedly render life impossible. Voters worldwide, apparently, are not buying the hype.
