Well, the big bad deniers of climate change are at it again, America. Don’t listen to Ron Blunt, Inhofe and other lying two-timers who are working against Progress.

One problem with being an activists and writing congressmen, senators, news media, and presidents about issues like global warming and the need to have a just, fair, and people-serving government in the USA is that we are sometimes forced to read garbage paid for by gruesome congressmen, brain-dead senators, FOX NEWS fanatics, and even the USA ex-presidents .
Below is the garbage I received from the incompetent and George W. Bush lap-dog, Roy Blunt (who shames the show-me staters), i.e.
before going BELOW , PLEASE NOTE WHAT the EPA SAYS on the topic:
Climate change is a problem that is affecting people and the environment. Greater energy efficiency and new technologies hold promise for reducing greenhouse gases and solving this global challenge. EPA’s website provides information on climate change for communities, individuals, businesses, states, localities and governments.
Collecting and interpreting environmental indicators play a critical role in our understanding of climate change and its causes. An indicator represents the state of certain environmental conditions over a given area and a specified period of time. Examples of climate change indicators include temperature, precipitation, sea level, and greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere.
EPA’s Climate Change Indicators in the United States (PDF) (80 pp, 13.3MB) report will help readers interpret a set of important indicators to better understand climate change. The report presents 24 indicators, each describing trends related to the causes and effects of climate change. It focuses primarily on the United States, but in some cases global trends are presented to provide context or a basis for comparison. EPA will use these indicators to collect data and generate analyses to:
* Monitor the effects/impacts of climate change in the United States
* Assist decision–makers on how to best use policymaking and program resources to respond to climate change
* Assist EPA and its constituents in evaluating the success of their climate change efforts
BELOW is the paid-for propaganda by Ron Blunt and a Do-NO-Good Republican dominated Congress
Thank you for your email on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) regulation of greenhouse gases.
The EPA’s efforts to regulate greenhouse gas emissions are outside of the authority given to it by Congress. It stretches the Clean Air Act to include emissions that the authors of the act never intended to regulate, and I will work to prevent the rule from being implemented and further harming our fragile economy.
I am co-sponsoring the Defending America’s Affordable Energy and Jobs Act (S. 228). This bill restores Congress’ role in the development and implementation of our nation’s climate and energy policy by blocking backdoor attempts by regulatory agencies to regulate carbon emissions.
Environmental regulations, while important, should not place undue burdens on Missourians and all Americans, who depend on economically-priced energy on the job and at home. Protecting our environment and jumpstarting our economy are not mutually exclusive goals.
We can create better paying jobs at home by developing more American energy, relying on clean fuel alternatives, and promoting conservation. I continue to support more reliance on alternative fuels and greater investment in research for our energy future.
Again, thank you for contacting me . I look forward to continuing our conversation on Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/SenatorBlunt ) and Twitter ( http://www.twitter.com/RoyBlunt ) about the important issues facing Missouri and the country. I also encourage you to visit my website ( http://www.blunt.senate.gov ) to learn more about where I stand on the issues and sign-up for my e-newsletter.
