EPA IG Finds Serious Flaws in Centerpiece of Obama Global Warming Agenda

EPA Inspector General report on flawed procedures used to "find" that greenhouse gases can be regulated by the EPA.

Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, announced that a new government report from the Office of Inspector General (OIG) of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reveals that the scientific assessment underpinning the Obama EPA’s endangerment finding for greenhouse gasses was inadequate and in violation of the Agency’s own peer review procedures.

The IG report released on 9/28/11, “Procedural Review of EPA’s Greenhouse Gases Endangerment Finding Data Quality Processes,” was requested by Senator Inhofe in an April 7, 2010 letter to the EPA IG.  Senator Inhofe asked that the OIG conduct an investigation into whether EPA followed the Data Quality Act and its own peer review procedures—which are designed to ensure that EPA makes decisions according to the best possible science—when it issued its finding that greenhouse gases harm public health and welfare, otherwise known as the endangerment finding.  The EPA OIG Report finds that EPA failed in this respect.

  1. I think the EPA is getting away with doing too many no-nos, just as the so-called Commander in Chief is doing! Since when have so many things gone wrong in the government operation of things?? What gives the EPA the right to skirt around the rules of air polution??? The EPA deserves to be eliminated from government operation, in my opinion. What good are they?? Global warming has been proved to NOT be caused by humans, but by natural climactic cycles!! I say, SCRAP the EPA!!!

  2. Unitl an independent review of the supposed data behind all of the EPA's assertions all their regulations should be suspended. It rather obvious that this organization has a pollitical agenda and needs to reigned in at a minimum.
