EPA's Complete Failure Calls For Dissolution [Watch]

Nancy J. Thorner, Heartland Institute

This may shock the myriad of government employees that work at the Environmental Protection Agency, but there's a five-year plan being mulled that would lead to the agency's dissolution.

This may shock the myriad of government employees that work at the Environmental Protection Agency, but there's a five-year plan being mulled that would lead to the agency's dissolution. It was one of many discussion topics at Heartland Institute's 12th annual climate change forum in March. 

Jay H. Lehr, Ph.D. appeared on a panel titled Climate Politics and Policy at ICCC-12, held in Washington, D.C., March 23 & 24.   Other panel members included Scott Armstrong, Ph.D. and the Honorable Dennis Hedke. Moderator was S.T. Karnick.    

Dr. Lehr's topic:  The Inefficiency of the EPA.

The EPA inflicted much harm during the Obama administration with its damaging rules and regulations. A turnaround is now taking place with the election of Donald Trump, but is the EPA really needed as a government agency?  Jay H. Lehr, Ph.D. doesn't think so.  He has a five-year plan to dissolve the EPA.

Jay Lehr's initial remark was to confess that a 70-year-old novel by Sinclair Lewis, Arrowsmith,  had influenced the direction of his life by guiding him toward science.

How CO2 became a greenhouse gas and then a pollutant 

In relation to how CO2 became a greenhouse gas and a pollutant that now drives the issue of Global Warming, Lehr noted these two events.

1.  In 1895 the problem began when a Swedish scientist (Svante Arrhenius (1859-1927) decided that because CO2 had an impact on temperature, it qualified for a greenhouse gas. 

2.  In 1990 a UN Committee was formed for the express purpose of determining man's role in running the planet.

Not taken into consideration was how CO2 concentration was much higher in centuries past, yet this had no impact in slowing the natural occurrence of ice ages.  The UN-ICC Committee proceeded to construct mathematical models that were so devised to conform to already established ICC predictions that CO2 was the cause of global warming.  The ICC report that followed, and subsequent reports, continue to be viewed as consensus science by global warming advocates.

Keynesian Economics and the Great Depression

Hillsdale College economics professor Gary Wolfram discusses Keynesian economics and the factors that pulled the national economy out of the Great Depression. The story of World War II shows that government spending may produce activity, but not the prosperity of a truly healthy economy.
