Obama Uses Exec Order To Take On Climate Policy

From Fox News:

Obama uses executive order in sweeping takeover of nation’s climate change policies

By Perry Chiaramonte | November 01, 2013

Through the stroke of a pen, President Obama on Friday used his executive powers to elevate and take control of climate change policies in an attempt to streamline sustainability initiatives – and potentially skirt legislative oversight and push a federal agenda on states.

The executive order establishes a task force of state and local officials to advise the administration on how to respond to severe storms, wildfires, droughts and other potential impacts of climate change.

Let’s hope they will prepare for global warming like they have prepared for Obama-Care.

The task force includes governors of seven states — all Democrats — and the Republican governor of Guam, a U.S. territory…

That seems like a fair balance. At least for Obama. (And check out the cast of players are at the bottom.)

The task force will look at federal money spent on roads, bridges, flood control and other projects. It ultimately will recommend how structures can be made more resilient to the effects of climate change, such as rising sea levels and warming temperatures…

Naturally, the solution will be that we need to give more taxpayers dollars to unions. Who, in turn, will kick back some of it to the Democrat Party.

[C]ritics say the order has the potential to do much more, including:

•  Hold back money to communities unless they meet new standards on various items and agendas set by the federal government. For example, using new policies that will encourage communities to rebuild to pre-disaster standards instead of stronger ones.
•  A possible mandate to bring sweeping new changes to land use and resource policies.
•  More control and refocus of climate change data and use of it to push a new agenda into every priority of the federal government.
•  Create the need for a new internal organization for coordination efforts during a government sequestration and possible future shutdowns…

These are not problems. These are features.

The task force includes Govs. Jerry Brown of California, Jay Inslee of Washington and Neil Abercrombie of Hawaii, as well as Delaware Gov. Jack Markell, Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin and Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn. The panel also includes several big-city mayors, including Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and Houston Mayor Annise Parker. All three are Democrats…

What could possibly go wrong?

    To think back around the time they stopped tours of the White House, this disaster plan was only 900 pages. Just as the media newspapers on the internet change words and edit for days, I’m guessing this sucker of Marshall law is 9000 pages; words changing like blinks on a Christmas Tree. Agenda 21 is peanuts compared to this plan.
