Lawless, tyrannical EPA actively trying to circumvent Supreme Court ruling on emissions standards


(NaturalNews) The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is a part of the federal government that is supposed to protect both human health and the environment. According to its own website, the EPA ensures that "all Americans are protected from significant risks to human health" and that "national efforts to reduce environmental risk are based on the best available scientific information."

But a recent report by The Daily Caller voices concern that the EPA is actively trying to circumvent a major Supreme Court ruling to halt the implementation of the EPA's key global warming regulation. The Clean Power Plan would have forced states to cut carbon emissions from power plants, and while on the surface the EPA has said that it will support the decision, it is also telling states that it will provide assistance to those that wish to comply voluntarily.

Is the EPA trying to find ways around the ruling?

According to experts at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, there is concern that the EPA is actively looking for ways around the Supreme Court's ruling after EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said, "Are we going to respect the decision of the Supreme Court? You bet, of course we are. But it doesn't mean it's the only thing we're working on and it doesn't mean we won't continue to support any state that voluntarily wants to move forward."

The question as to whether or not the EPA will abide by the stay has also been posed by GlobalWarming.org, because it seems that the Clean Power Plan itself exposes the organization as a rogue agency. The stay requires the EPA to cease implementation of the Clean Power Plan until the Supreme Court makes a final decision about whether or not to overturn the rule.

The stay completely prohibits the EPA from actively trying to implement the rule. However, when the EPA gives advice on what regulations a state should implement, the states will feel pressure to take it on board because of the power and status held by the EPA. No one wants to make an enemy out of the EPA or antagonize their regulatory overseer.

This isn't the first EPA scandal

In fact, there are reports throughtout the news media of the EPA acting unlawfully or unethically. But with the size and power of the government agency, there's not really THAT much we can do to keep the EPA under control.

According to HotAir, the EPA actually gave an ethics award to a fake employee "Richard Windsor" who was in fact an email alias for the agency's former head, Lisa Jackson. The irony of this is seemingly unbelievable – giving the award of "Scholar of Ethical Behavior" to a fake alias and fake employee that was unethically created merely to circumvent requests by the Freedom of Information Act. Attempts by the EPA to circumvent the law are a common occurrence.

Meanwhile, it seems that the EPA favors those who share its ideologies – charging conservatives a ridiculous fee for FOIAs while waiving fees for liberal groups such as EarthJustice and the Natural Resources Defense Council.

The EPA has also leaked confidential information on farmers and cattle facilities to environmental groups – as many as 80,000 livestock facilities in 30 different states as a result of a FOIA request. According to HotAir, "the initial release of data contained personal information that was not required by the FOIA request" – including names and personal addresses.

The EPA seemingly knows no bounds and is a law unto itself, and the suspected attempt to circumvent the ruling against the Clean Power Plan brings to light concerns as to the way the EPA manages to manipulate and eventually get what it wants.
