For months, we've heard about President Obama's "all of the above" energy policy, but recently, it has become clear that it would be more accurate to call it "none of the above." The administration has launched a war on affordable energy through actions such as the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) new Utility MACT (for Maximum Achievable Control Technology) regulation.
When I sat in my fifth-grade science class in 1943, I listened to my science teacher tell us about the Earth's relation to the sun. Dr. Sanderson told us the sun warmed the Earth and that the Earth was protected from the heat by an atmosphere. If the Earth did not rotate, the side facing the sun would burn up and the dark side would be too cold to support life.
The U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington ruled June 26 that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was "unambiguously correct" in applying the Clean Air Act to combat carbon dioxide. The court deferred to the scientific judgment of EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson in the agency's endangerment finding that this gas, which is produced by all humans, becomes harmful to human health when it is a byproduct of man-made technological advances such as automobiles.
The Navy is resuming its practice of using old warships for target practice and sinking them in U.S. coastal waters after a nearly two-year moratorium spurred by environmental and cost concerns.

When the all-new, North American designed and engineered 2013 Avalon goes on sale later this year, consumers can choose between a powerful V6 gasoline powertrain and Toyota's proven Hybrid Synergy Drive.
A federal appeals court on Tuesday rejected a lawsuit from a number of states, including Virginia, that challenged the Environmental Protection Agency's findings that greenhouse gas emissions may “reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health.”
A federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld the first-ever regulations aimed at reducing the gases blamed for global warming, handing down perhaps the most significant decision on the issue since a 2007 Supreme Court ruling that greenhouse gases could be controlled as air pollutants.
Rep. Ralph Hall represents the Fourth Congressional District of Texas, which straddles the Oklahoma and Arkansas borders northeast of Dallas. In more than six decades of public service, he also has been a county judge, a Texas state senator and a Navy pilot during World War II, when he served on an aircraft carrier in the Pacific. In 2004, Mr. Hall switched from the Democratic to the Republican Party, explaining, ''I'm not comfortable in the caucus with them running down a president [George W. Bush] that I've known since he was 11." He currently is chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.
