At the risk of “flogging a LIVE horse”, this also deserves re-posting here as one of many examples of the skullduggery implemented on the excuse of “global warming” [bold emphasis mine]: QUOTE
“The threat of global warming is used as an excuse to force unnecessary, costly and tyrannical regulations on the public. Man-made global warming is a hoax and the Earth has been in a cooling phase over the last 15 years. For documented evidence of the hoax, click here for James Corbett’s analysis of the United Nations’ IPCC.
Obama uses executive orders to circumvent Congress in addition to bestowing unconstitutional powers on executive agencies under his control.
A current example of agency overreach is playing out right now as the EPA is trying to extend its jurisdiction over all bodies of water by changing the definition of ‘water’ in the Clean Water Act. The EPA does have jurisdiction over ‘navigable waters’ and is trying to expand its control by claiming that all bodies of water fit into that category because water has a common source under the Earth’s surface.”
[And here was I thinking that water is recycled from the land surface and sea by evaporation and precipitation, and that underground water was produced by filtration from above – silly me! KMc]
“Obama is including state and local governments in his task force because the the feds must get agreement from the states to implement federal regulations that fall outside the scope of federal powers listed in the Constitution. Obama’s task force targets the states’ natural resources and local governments’ control over land use through planning and building permits.”
