EPA in the US rolling back the Obama legacy

The Obama administration weaponised the Environmental Protection Agency in many ways in addition to the Clean Air Act to demonise CO2 and ozone, including a definition of waters that could conceivably cover a puddle or the wheel ruts of a bicycle. At last some movement on that front.

    Are the Bureaucrats responsible for this travesty of legislation still employed? If so, why? They have shown their complete refusal to be trusted with the legislative process, so why not dismiss them?

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is an independent agency of the United States federal government for environmental protection.President Richard Nixon proposed the establishment of EPA on July 9, 1970[4] and it began operation on December 2, 1970, after Nixon signed an executive order.

    It’s interesting that the Obama WH pushed so aggressively to bring all water in the US under the control of the state, because through their climate action they were also trying to bring air under their control too. And Mrs Obama was keenly pushing bonkers food regulations as well.

    Lefties don’t want us to be able to eat, drink or even breathe without their say so.

    How about rooting, then?

    In the meantime Bill Shorten promises to create an EPA for Australia if elected. What could go wrong?

    Reminds me of Premier Peter Beatties agricultural policies.Apart from having airial photography to count the trees cut down by a farmer on the Twoomba range ,he decreed that all new dams could hold no more water store age than was needed by a cow per day per head. That was at the start of the 10 year drought.

    Off target, but on the the same street …

    Philip Cross: StatCan just exposed how worthless ‘green’ industries are to Canada’s economy

    “StatCan’s green-economy accounts include everything from hydro and nuclear power to services such as waste management to manufacturing clean-energy goods such as wind turbines.”

    This isn’t an example of rolling back Obama’s legacy, this is just fiddling around the margins.
    Rolling back Obama’s legacy can only be done by serious political action, which conservatives only engage in when advancing a leftist agenda. Like when conservatives created the EPA in the first place, for example.
    Rolling back Obama’s legacy would involve things like, decisively repealing Obamacare, ending the trillion dollar budgets, not surpassing Obama by passing trade regulations, etc.
    It’s funny to me how Trump supporters blow out of proportions the most trivial of his actions, but then completely ignore that on every major policy, it’s basically a third Obama term, or even more left wing on things like trade.

    First they control energy, then they control water. Are there still doubters?
