Report from COP-20 in Lima: United States Makes Impressive But Misleading Presentation


The U. S. presentation by Rick Duke of the White House Council on Environmental Quality was the most detailed and impressive.  But it did attract several highly critical questions. 

To Mr. Duke’s claim that one of three key parts of President Obama’s Climate Action Plan was the the U. S. would lead international efforts, South Africa questioned how the U. S. could lead when its own domestic efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions had been so insufficient.

But no questions were raised about what I consider to be two highly misleading points in the U. S. presentation.  First, Mr. Duke listed the EPA’s proposed rules to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from new and existing power plants without mentioning that they are both subject to serious legal challenges and to serious attempts to block them in the 114th Congress. Second, Mr. Duke attributed significant future reductions in fossil fuel use to the increasing use of cellulosic ethanol.

ALG - House's 'tepid lawsuit' encourages Obama to violate law 


Nov. 21, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement responding to the House lawsuit against executive implementation of Obamacare:


"Boehner's tepid lawsuit response to five years of President Obama's executive actions to willy nilly change the law without Congress sadly demonstrates the profound weakness of his leadership. By the time Boehner's lawsuit winds its way through the court system, Obamacare will have been fully implemented. Is it this kind of pathetic response that encourages Obama to continue his effective dissolution of the separation of powers."
