Another Nail in the Coffin of Mankind’s Fight for Climate Change,USA goes Anti-Green – Congress blocks EPA Carbon Rules

0 Comment

USA has been one of the worst countries in the world in regards to climate change and global warming issues.While countries have pledged to cut down their emissions from 1990 under the Kyoto Protocol,USA has not only increased its GHG Emissions by 80% from 1990 but also failed to announce any target for 2020.President Obama except for some Loan Guarantees and Funding has miserably failed to push for a climate change and energy legislation.Now with the Republicans leading the House of Representatives,there is no hope for any Global Warming from the second largest emitter of Carbon Dioxide.The Environmental Protection Agency which had been formulating rules to regulate the emission of Carbon Gases from utilities and oil refineries has been now stopped in the blocks by the US Congress.

The Anglo Saxon countries have been notorious for their lack of responsibility in regards to Climate Change.Canada,Australia,USA and UK have been the worst in this regard.Russia too has been extremely bad in the Climate Change fight but its not a surprise given that most of the elite there depend on the Fossil Fuel Industry for their power and money.The powerful oil and gas industry has managed to scuttle and block climate change fight globally.The Cancun and Copenhagen Climate Change Meets were abject failures resulting in huge pessimism amongst Green Activists.China and India are trying to do their bit but they are  still trying to move millions from poverty to a respectable existence so their resources are limited.Rich countries like Saudi Arabia are the worst offenders blocking island nations  request for a climate change study instead asking for money to replace their trillion dollar oil revenues.Climate Change has already arrived though it can’t be proved given the complexity of Climate Change.This US Congress Law is another nail in the coffin of Mankind’s Fight for Climate Change

House passes bill to stop EPA climate program

The House of Representatives passed legislation on Thursday that would stop the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating emissions of gases blamed for warming the planet, a day after the Senate rejected similar legislation.The vote in the Republican-controlled chamber was largely symbolic since the Senate voted down four amendments on Wednesday that would stop or delay implementation of the EPA rules, which began rolling out in January.

The White House has said President Barack Obama would veto any legislation that would permanently stop the EPA’s climate regulation.Analysts said the debate could heat up again when the EPA proposes rules that would limit emissions from power plants in July and on oil refineries by December.
