    A terrible ruling on an issue, man-caused climate change, that is bogus. This is simply more government interference in the free market process.

    Appeals Court Rejects Challenge to EPA Greenhouse-Gas Rules

    By Siobhan Hughes

    WASHINGTON—A U.S. federal appeals court Friday rejected an industry challenge to the first-ever nationwide greenhouse-gas regulations, clearing the way for the rules to take effect next month as planned.

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit said that the group challenging the regulations hadn't satisfied "the stringent standards required for a stay pending court review."

    Environmentalists rejoiced that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency rules would take hold. Businesses expressed disappointment and vowed to fight on.

    "We continue to believe that the our arguments presented a compelling case," Quentin Riegel, deputy general counsel at the National Association of Manufacturers, said in a statement. "The EPA's agenda places unnecessary burdens on manufacturers, drives up energy costs and imposes even more uncertainty on the nation's job creators."

    The fight will go on!

    Enviro-whackos continue to push for regulations without Scientific Evidentiary History to prove the case.

    I still say, *if* they are so concerned then they should lead the way themselves and stop doing and using what they insist we stop using and doing.

    *Then* I *might* believe they have a case...

    But, I seriously doubt that any of them would give up refridgeration just because it uses Freon!

    And, then, how did they all get to the Global Warming Summit?

    Where, incidently, it was having the coldest temperatures on record!

    They flew!

    Did they combine their modes so that only one or two planes were flown?

    No, I'd be willing to bet they all took individual charters!

    So much for practicing what you preach!

    It wasn't really a defeat, per se...

    What the judge said was that hadn't satisfied him enough to issue a stay until he could review the whole case...

    He could well change his mind when he has a chance to review all the evidence.

    Then there are still appeals...

    Need to send all enviro-whackos to the Antarctic and then take away their fossil fuels!!

    (Or, let their own regs put the fuel price so far out of even their budgets?)

    Oh, maybe they'd get down there and couldn't afford the fuel to return?!

    We can hope and pray!
