Obama’s new climate council to regulate economy

Obama’s new climate council to regulate economyPresident Barack Obama has given the nation a new “Council on Climate Preparedness and Resilience” that expands government bureaucrats’ role in how Americans use their lands, energy, waters and property.
Obama announced the executive order Friday, the day after Halloween.
The order is titled “Preparing the United States for the Impacts of Climate Change.”
The new order was issued even though recent scientific data have contradicted claims that use of carbon energy — such as gasoline — will drive up the world’s temperature and induce damaging climate change. Average temperatures have leveled for more than a decade, despite the sharply rising use of carbon energy in China and other countries.
U.S. use of carbon energy has stabilized with increasing market-driven efficiency and tightening regulations.
The council is officially intended “to prepare the Nation for the impacts of climate change by undertaking actions to enhance climate preparedness and resilience.”
The order bypasses Congress, and is directly implemented by Obama’s deputies and appointees in the federal bureaucracies.
It allows agencies use the promise of environmental disaster to force changes on Americans’ use of energy and land, and to increase taxpayer spending on expanding the fledgling renewable energy sector.
