When you’re the EPA why not celebrate Earth Day with a week of carbon emissions creating travel?
That’s what Administrator Gina McCarthy is doing> Here’s what the EPA website says:
In recognition of Earth Week, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy is taking to the road to ask Americans to act on climate change through simple actions to reduce carbon pollution in their daily lives.
Administrator McCarthy will participate in various events to promote President Obama’s Climate Action Plan and will focus on responsible steps to cut carbon pollution to slow the effects of climate change and leave a cleaner, more stable environment for future generations. She will also explain how the plan seeks to decrease the threats to public health and anticipate challenges from severe weather associated with a changing climate, while encouraging clean energy innovation and growth in green jobs.
You mean like Solyndra? Or Fiskar?
I wondered what on earth (day) she is doing here? We’re last on the list after New York, Boston, Cleveland and Atlanta. EPA website says:
FRIDAY, APRIL 25, MEMPHIS, TENN.
Time TBA: Administrator McCarthy will participate in a media tour of the Partnership for Sustainability’s investments in Memphis with HUD Secretary Donovan and DOT Secretary Foxx. The tour will highlight the impact of Partnership investments in the community.
I don’t know about others, but whenever someone starts talking about sustainability, alarms go off. As is the Progressive way, sustainability morphs into smart meter usage, monitoring of our energy use, requiring us to cut down on travel, etc.; anything that curbs our previous liberties. Sustainability applies to whatever way they want to form us to comply with their utopian view of life. It never applies to money though; they could care less about how much these plans will cost Mr. Taxpayer. Refer to the opening sentence here.
I would like to know what her real purpose is. However, I imagine the daily newspaper will have some photo of her meeting with children at some school, showing her some recycling attempts much in the way Communists staged photos of whatever happy leader you choose exercising propaganda with youths.
