17 States Challenge Trump Over ‘Climate Change’ Policy Or Something

(Before It's News)

If only there was something all these Democrat run states could do, like raise taxes and fees on their citizens, force them into cities, force them out of their private fossil fueled vehicles and onto mass transit, raise taxes and fee, require citizens to pay for and install solar and wind, shut down non-“renewable” power plants, raise taxes and fees…

(UK Guardian) A coalition of 17 US states filed a legal challenge on Wednesday against efforts by Donald Trump’s administration to roll back climate change regulations, deepening a political rift over his emerging energy policies.

Led by New York state, the coalition said the administration has a legal duty to regulate emissions of the gases scientists believe cause global climate change.

“The law is clear: the EPA must limit carbon pollution from power plants,” New York attorney general Eric Schneiderman said in a statement announcing the challenge.

That would be the same Schneiderman who is using his Power to assault private companies and think tanks for Wrongthink on anthropogenic climate change, wanting them to release tons of communications and documents, while, at the same time, refusing to release his own communications and documents.

However, the law doesn’t state anything about CO2 emissions: just some court rulings and made up regulations from EPA.

The coalition includes attorneys general from California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, and Washington –- along with the District of Columbia and a number of smaller localities.

So, why don’t those states implement the measures for their individual states that Trump is getting rid of for federal policy? No one is stopping them. Trump won’t stop them. He’ll laugh when their economies tank and citizens abandon those states and move to Republican states. But, see, Warmists don’t want to implement all these things in their own lives: they want to force them on Everyone Else. And do it by increasing the size, scope, and power of the central government.
