In her first public speech, new EPA chief, Gina McCarthy, went on the attack against those who are not on the global warming-climate change bandwagon. Speaking at Harvard, Ms. McCarthy said:
“Can we stop talking about environmental regulations killing jobs? Please, at least for today,”
“Let’s talk about this as an opportunity of a lifetime, because there are too many lifetimes at stake,”
So, once again, apparently, the science is settled. All of mankind, with the exception of environmental zealots like Ms. McCarthy and Al Gore, are responsible for reeking havoc on this planet just by their mere existence. This song is getting old.
And, she didn’t miss her chance to repeat the Obama meme that going green will create high paying jobs and jump-start the economy.
In her first speech as the head of EPA, Gina McCarthy told an audience gathered at Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Mass., that curbing climate-altering pollution will spark business innovation, grow jobs and strengthen the economy. The message was classic Obama, who has long said that the environment and the economy aren’t in conflict and has sold ambitious plans to reduce greenhouse gases as a means to jumpstart a clean energy economy. McCarthy signaled Tuesday that she was ready for the fight, saying that the agency would continue issuing new rules, regardless of claims by Republicans and industry groups that under Obama the EPA has been the most aggressive and overreaching since it was formed more than 40 years ago.
How’s Obama’s transformation of America working out for you, folks? I’m not sure there will be anything recognizable of America left, by the time Obama leaves office.
Well, that’s what I’m thinking. What are your thoughts?
