Obviously, this is fall-out from yesterday’s stunning Massachusetts special election.  Not only is government-run health care dead, but cap and trade and the EPA’s regulation of CO2 are also on their death beds.

ABC reports:

Three Democratic senators are joining an effort to block the Obama administration from taking steps to reduce the pollution blamed for global warming.

Democrats Ben Nelson of Nebraska, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, and Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas have signed onto a resolution introduced Thursday by Republican Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. The measure, which must pass Congress and be signed by the President, would bar the Environmental Protection Agency from issuing regulations to control greenhouse gases.

Nelson, Lincoln and Landrieu seem to be attempting to save their political careers judging from this move.

    Yeah, this is an attempt to pay penance for the Louisiana Purchase and the Cornhusker Kickback.
    Even if it were to pass, Obama would never sign it.

    The only way to kill this is in court, make the EPA prove CO2 is “hazardous.”

    Considering they used IPCC, NASA and NOAA “data,” the defense should be good for decades of comedy goodness.


  2. Isn’t it fun to watch Democrats run scared? They’ve already begged to wait on the cap-and-trade bill until after the mid-term elections. Sometimes I wonder how these folks can be so drunk with power one day and running for cover the next.
