The Hill: Obama grasps for climate legacy as second-term agenda crumbles — Uses Executive Orders to Bypass Congress

-

Excerpt from The Hill: ‘There’s one thing that’s going right for Obama: Executive action on climate change is moving full-speed ahead at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

“He may be able to do more through climate change [rules] because the EPA has the authority,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) told The Hill on Thursday.

The most far-reaching piece of Obama’s climate plan is carbon emission standards for the nation’s fleet of existing power plants, by far the largest single source of industrial carbon emissions. The EPA is also writing standards for new plants.

“I think climate change, immigration reform are both sort of legacy issues,” Blumenthal said. “The measure of his presidency will be whether he has left changes in law and regulation, but also a heightened awareness, which I think he has been doing.”

  1. The day is soon coming when most Americans will be asking, “How the hell did we re-elect Obama for a second term in office… and why did we do it?”

    He lacks leadership. He lacks personal authority. He surrounds himself with “yes men”. He seems economically illiterate. He seems not to appreciate the importance of a strong US military. He certainly does not understand business. And he believes in climate model global warming alarmism rather than real scientific evidence.
