"The state explained that the IPCC, and therefore the EPA, relied on flawed science to conclude that greenhouse emissions endanger public health and welfare," Abbott said. "Because the Administration predicated its Endangerment Finding on the IPCC's questionable facts, the state is seeking to prevent the EPA's new rules, and the economic harm that will result from these regulations, from being imposed on Texas employers, workers, and enforcement agencies."Long-time readers will remember this. And this. And this. And this. And this. Most damning of all is that a third of all the "scientific papers" referenced by the IPCC's report seem to be environmental groups' press releases.
In the EPA's defense, I'd point out that it really isn't any more politicized than, say, the Department of Justice. Or Homeland Security.
