Save American Liberty from Environmentalist Tyranny

Rational Self-Interest

The following is an email I received from my friend, Paul Saunders. I am taking action by contacting every government official I can. I urge you to do the same.

To ALL of You Who Value Your Liberty and Your Life, This is a CALL TO ACTION.

In July the federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued an Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking [ANPR]: Regulating Greenhouse Gas Emissions under the Clean Air Act, which details their plan to force Americans to reduce emissions of CO2 and other so-called greenhouse gases. This follows on an Executive Order signed by President Bush, which was made possible by a U.S. Supreme Court decisions ruling that CO2 is a pollutant. (!)

This plan will strip the American people of their freedom, and place them under the control of a single, all-powerful, federal agency. Industrial permits, furnace regulations, auto emissions testing, building permits, transportation, your home’s temperature, and food production—all will fall under the boot of the EPA. Environmentalists will use lawsuits to pressure the EPA to tighten an ever-shrinking noose around the neck of every American.

This EPA Proposed Rulemaking would after November 11, 2008 force Mandatory, 70 percent reductions in CO2 emissions by 2050 which means Mandatory, 70 percent reductions of energy usage by 2050. This action would be destructive of, at first, your freedom and prosperity, but ultimately would endanger your life.

The EPA is inviting public comment on this plan. John Lewis and I have submitted our own objections. To see these objections—along with instructions for how to register your own comments—go to this website: http://www.classicalideals.com/EPA_Ruination.htm

Do it before November 11, the deadline for public comment.

IMPORTANT!!—Identify your comments as: Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OAR-2008-0318.

Our comments to the EPA objecting categorically to their ANPR appear in two separate documents:

First, a Cover Letter (3 pages): http://www.classicalideals.com/EPA-AnprCommentsCoverLetter.html.

Second, our reasons for the objections (33 pages): http://www.classicalideals.com/EPA-AnprComments.html.

Our objections in this second document, Comments to the EPA, are focused on six major grounds (moral, natural historical, scientific, logical, technological, political) and each appears as a separate Comment section (one to six) with supporting evidence and arguments. I do not believe that anyone else is objecting to this EPA Rulemaking on moral and political grounds as we are.

I already sent this notice to numbers of organizations that are active in refuting the scientific ignorance of the man-made global warming advocates. I urge you to work with us to Save American Liberty, from the marauders marching under the banner of Save the Planet.

Please choose to either send a comment to the EPA supporting our Comments to the EPA or generate and send in your own comments on this freedom-destroying Rulemaking.

The EPA invites public comment—until November 11, 2008. That is the deadline for opposing this horrific, tyrannical plan.

Read this, and act! Please spread the word. Send this website far and wide, put it on the blogosphere, copy it in whole or in part, and write a letter to the EPA and to any media you can reach!

Update, 2008.09.28:
Capitalism Magazine has published Paul's and Dr. Lewis's objections to the expansion of EPA power as a seven-part series, EPA Fascism versus America. Here are links to the parts: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
