Inside the bum's way

Myron Ebell has returned to the CEI's web-waves with a couple of posts on a newly revamped front page (which cunningly avoids any photos of retrieting glaciers) about the machinations in Congress. The new Republican majority is causing him to wet his pants with glee as it attempts to scrub out any and all programs to make this world a less dirty and dangerous place for humans to survive in.

He begins:
The House of Representatives took the first step on Thursday toward reclaiming its authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions.
This is, of course, a lie. The House of Representatives has always had the authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. What Ebell actually craves is for it to claim the power to block every other institution in the country from performing the necessary functions required to promote the survival of the nation and the human species at large from environmental catastrophe.

Not all of us are blessed with the idiotic faith of the new chairman of the Energy Subcommittee on Energy and Power, John Shimkus, who can be seen here claiming that, according to the infallible word of god, "As long as the earth endures, seed time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, will never cease."

Anyways, back to Myron, who drivels on for the rest of his piece:
Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) chimed in that he was worried the Republicans would try to repeal the law of gravity. Rep. Jay Inslee (D-Wash.) instead thought that Republicans were trying to repeal the first law of thermodynamics and cause children all over the world to get asthma... Preventing asthma is now the principal reason brought forward by the global warming alarmists in Congress to cripple the U. S. economy with energy-rationing regulations.
He goes on to claim that global warming is good for asthma, following an internet search that required the usual filtering out of all things authentically scientific.

Myron's second piece concerns some further congressional machinations over getting this inaction-forcing law through the senate.

Interestingly, he links to this article which concludes with a for and against section:
The Upton bill has drawn fire from environmentalists and public health advocates, including the American Lung Association.

The measure has been praised by the oil and gas industry, including refiners and the American Petroleum Institute.
So that's where he got his rant about asthma and showed off how much more he knew about the effects than the experts concerned.

Would you take advice from Doctor M. Ebell?

Not if you wanted to be able to take measures to live.

We're god's hands now.

And guess what: god doesn't have any hands anyway.
