Obama and the EPA Know No Bounds With Regard To Climate Change (Guest Post)

climate change

First, it was cows. Now it’s humans. Will Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama and The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) not stop until EVERYTHING is regulated in the name of global warming, or climate change, or whatever it’s called this week?

On March 28, 2014, Obama released a Fact Sheet entitled “Climate Action Plan – Strategy to Cut Methane Emissions.” That “Fact Sheet” closely follows a study by the EPA that announced that cows emit methane.

So the stage is set. The EPA will protect us from evil cows that emit methane. We can all sleep better. Or can we?

Well… On April 2, 2014, we learned from an EPA Inspector General (IG) report that “The Environmental Protection Agency has been conducting dangerous experiments on humans over the past few years in order to justify more onerous clean air regulations.”   [emphasis mine]

It seems that the EPA conducted five experiments in 2010 and 2011 on people with health issues such as asthma and heart problems, and on the elderly. The experiments exposed people to dangerously high levels of toxic pollutants, including diesel exhaust fumes. Diesel exhaust fumes contains forty toxic air contaminants, including nineteen that are known carcinogens, and particulant matter [PM]. The EPA has publicly warned of the dangers of PM. An EPA document from 2003 that says short-term exposure to PM can result in heart attacks and arrhythmias for people with heart disease. It further states that long-term exposure can result in reduced lung function and even death.

The EPA has what it calls PM2.5, PM that is 2.5 microns or less in diameter, about 1/30th the thickness of a human hair. The EPA sets its PM2.5 standard at 15 micrograms per cubic meter of outdoor air. Yet the EPA exposed people to PM levels of 600 micrograms per cubic meter. So 600 micrograms per cubic meter is forty times what the EPA sets as an acceptable outdoor air standard. The EPA advises “… [e]veryone should avoid any outdoor exertion. People with respiratory or heart disease, the elderly and children should remain indoors” when PM2.5 levels are between about 250 and 500 micrograms per cubic meter.

In the IG report were these statements:

  • “… the EPA did not include information on long-term cancer risks in its diesel exhaust studies’ consent forms.”
  • “An EPA manager considered these long-term risks minimal for short-term study exposures…”
  • “… only one of five studie’ consent forms provided the subject with information on the upper range of the pollutant” [they would be exposed to].
  • “… two of five alerted study subjects to the risk of death for older individuals with cardiovascular disease.”
  • “… exposed people with health issues to levels of pollutants up to 50 times greater than the agency says is safe for humans.”

The IG report also contains these two statements:

  • The EPA needs to ensure that the human research study team members obtain annual ethics training to properly protect study subjects.
  • This lack of warning about PM is also different from the EPA’s public image about PM.

The IG report says that no one died during the experiments. The report does say that “one test subject – a 58-year-old obese woman with medical problems and a family history of heart disease – was ordered to go to the hospital by the EPA after being exposed to ‘ambient air pollution particles’ in October, 2010.” And that “Other test subjects also experienced health problems during their testing. One subject developed a persistent cough after being exposed to ozone for 15 minutes in April 2011 and two other subjects suffered from ‘cardiac arrhythmias’ during testing in 2010 after being exposed to ‘clean air’.”

But what about after the experiments? The IG report says nothing about that. I can only conclude that the EPA, armed with its (tainted) release forms, didn’t care about humans after the the experiments were concluded.

Let’s see. 2010 and 2011, both years during Obama’s watch. Where was the MSM on this?

WOW! I’m glad the EPA is protecting us from climate change gasses. But how does it justify its latest actions? Oh, silly me. In both cases politics are to blame, and the EPA is just following orders. That reason didn’t work for Hitler’s murders. Will it work for Obama’s murders?

But that’s just my opinion.

    Obama is collecting old cannonballs to drop into that big spewing volcano in Ecuador this week.
    It eats up all the decade’s carbon credits and ”savings” in ten minutes.
    One plume of methane and other greenhouse gases going six miles instantly.
    And still going strong, spewing methane.
    Heh.
    Cow farts pale into insignificance.

    If you had bothered to read the Forbes article written in 2012 you would have seen that these tests began in 2004 under Bush. These tests were stopped under Obama. Another instance of poor research on Warrens part

    @John:

    But-Bushing is so 2009. Who did what under which crappy administration is irrelevant. It’s just another example of why the EPA needs to be abolished.

    As someone who deals with the EPA on a regular basis, the manner they’ve conducted themselves has gotten progressively worse through the years, especially more recently the past five years. Under the current administration, very few of their decisions has any basis in science. It is more politically based in ill-formed and uninformed preconceptions. They basically have no fundamental understanding of environmental chemistry and engineering. It is quite troubling to see an agency that once had a solid scientific footing becoming another bloated, no-nothing bureaucracy.

    I SURELY WOULDN’T WANT TO BREATH THE FUME DONE BY THE INCINIRATION OF MANY THOUSANDS BABY ABORTED, THAT FUME IS SO EVIL, IT MUST GIVE ONE THE DEATH SENTENCE AND A CERTANTY
    TO MEET THE ANGEL OF HELL FOR HAVING TAKEN PART IN BREATHING THAT FUME, OR HAVING ATE
    IT BY WAY OF FRUITS AND VEGGYS GROWN IN THOSE ASHES OF HUMAN , WHO CRY VENGEANCE, IN THE REHALM SPACE THEY ARE NOW,
    TO HUMANITY, FOR LETTING ATROCITY HAPPEN,
    the punishment will reach those who didn’t know they breath
    its fume spread in the air we all breath,

    in the name of global warming, or climate change, or whatever it’s called this week?

    yes, it was global cooling through the 70’s when they figured out it was warming, so they changed it to global warming til they figure out it has been cooling for the last 15 years, so to lower the confusion level, they’ve now changed it to climate change. We all know that there are four seasons in each year when the climate changes from cold to warm back to cold again. I wonder why they want to try to stop that?

    Re: comment #3, John, you reference a Forbes article from 2012, yet you provide no link to it. Does the article exist? Or is it a figment of your imagination? I provide links to my research.

    AGW warmists believe it is alright to lie about warming if it causes more countries to http://ajae.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2014/02/24/ajae.aau001.abstractget involved.

    Some of the lies exposed! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/environment/climatechange/10746497/How-did-the-IPCCs-alarmism-take-everyone-in-for-so-long.html

    The lies have only caused US Taxpayers at lease $2 billion out of pocket. Add in to the mix the birds killed by wind mills, the much higher food prices due to ethanol mandates in gasoline, the bio fuel mandate for Navy fleets at 3 times the cost. And there are still ill informed people who will defend AGW to their death bed.

    they are fix on it so much they try to sell it as if they know the future.
    it is like a maniac brain who have no other activity in his head but it’
    regardless of since they start, time pass and NATURE HAS DONE HER REGULAR CHORES

    @This one:

    It’s called; ‘you’re an idiot if you don’t wake up.’

    Roughly 129 Climate scandals and counting including the most recent that Randy posts.

    No warming for 17 years and counting.

    The “97% Consensus” has been found to be a fraud, never mind that science is never dependent on the opinions of a consensus.

    95% of the Global Warming models are wrong.

    What exactly are we supposed to wake up to? Another mediocre Roland Emmerich screenplay?

    @Kraken: When I hear people advocate the EPA should be abolished, I wonder if they are indeed that profoundly ignorant or are just spectacularly stupid.

    It’s akin to say you want an end of police protection or an end of our judicial system because someone found some flaw in them.

    Even your most radical lunatics understand that an end of the EPA in its entirety with no replacement whatsoever would be disastrous.

    @Ronald J. Ward:

    This of course is because you have no idea what you’re talking about, as you and I together have repeatedly illustrated.

    It’s akin to say you want an end of police protection or an end of our judicial system because someone found some flaw in them.

    Even your most radical lunatics understand that an end of the EPA in its entirety with no replacement whatsoever would be disastrous.

    This of course is incorrect.

    Remember, that vast majority of the Collective’s dire Chicken Little predictions never come to pass, because they’re based on purely imaginary calamities.

    The EPA was established in 1970, meaning that America fared just fine in its absence for roughly 194 years. In fact, Homo Sapiens Sapiens has survived on Planet Earth without the existence of an EPA for about 200,000 years.

    The EPA is really just a tool that the eco-fascist uses to impose their zealous will on the productive class.

    Let’s take a look at some of the work the EPA has done that Americans would be better off without.

    The EPA tested deadly pollutants on humans to push President Obama’s agenda. How organic. Some of these experiments were conducted on children.

    The EPA refuses to report the costs of their regulations. This is likely because the multi-colored hair lunatics that populate the EPA’s staff, likely have never had to try to run a business or household under the EPA’s needless regulations.

    The EPA has attempted to circumnavigate 2nd Amendment rights by enforcing tyrannical “environmental violations.”

    The EPA harasses reporters who attempt to ask questions.

    The EPA imposes preposterous fines for using your own property as you please.

    The EPA is attempting to “modify the DNA of the capitalist system.”

    The EPA raids activities performed by the productive class.

    The list goes on and on but you get the point. The EPA doesn’t serve a legitimate purpose. It’s merely a warehouse for nitwit activists who are unable to find legitimate productive work thanks to the crappy education they received through America’s worthless university system, and who want to force Americans to live by the whims of their pot-fueled bipolar fancies.
