WAR ON COAL - MARLO LEWIS

Globalwarming.org: Yes, Coal Is Dying, and Yes, EPA Is the Main Culprit


EPA is targeting the coal industry with costly, nonsensical regulations for no discernible reason other than to placate the environmentalist wing of the President’s political party. Of course, this is crummy policy making, especially in the midst of a difficult economy.  > Read the analysis at Globalwarming.org

BATTERED BUSINESS BUREAU - RYAN YOUNG


Openmarket.org: CEI’s Battered Business Bureau: The Week In Regulation

 

This week in the world of regulation:

  • Last week, 88 new final rules were published, up from 71 the previous week.
  • That’s the equivalent of a new regulation every 1 hour and 55 minutes — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
  • All in all, 2,949 final rules have been published in the Federal Register this year.
  • If this keeps up, the total tally for 2012 will be 3,868 new rules.

Profiles in Liberty: Chris Horner of the Competitive Enterprise Institute

Christopher C. Horner serves as a Senior Fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. As an attorney in Washington, DC, Horner has represented CEI as well as scientists and Members of the U.S. House and Senate on matters of environmental policy in the federal courts including the Supreme Court.


Horner has testified before the United States Senate Committees on Foreign Relations and Environment and Public Works, and works on a legal and policy level with numerous think tanks and policy organizations throughout the world. This week, Horner published a newly uncovered memo between the IPCC and EPA.


Greenpeace has repeatedly targeted Mr. Horner, by stealing his garbage on a weekly basis, issuing press releases announcing with whom he dines and including him in various other hysterical publications including most recently “A Field Guide to Climate Criminals” distributed at the UN climate meeting in Montreal in December 2005.


If you haven’t purchased his new book, The liberal War on Transparency: Confessions of a Freedom of Information “Criminal,” you should do so today! Follow him on Twitter @Chris_C_Horner.
