EPA Shifts Stance As IPCC Stumbles - AGW Chameleons

The Global Warmers are certainly nimble in changing course rapidly as their "facts" are disproved eg Global Warming becomes Climate Change, more hurricanes becomes less but stronger hurricanes , and  giant snowstorms become evidence of Global Warming . With the IPCC she cited for the Endangerment ruling under assault, EPA head Lisa Jackson has now said the ruling was based on the American scientific community.Pajama Media reports on the latest quickstep from Jackson and fellow-traveller Barbara Boxer.

The EPA has specifically cited the IPCC AR4 report as the primary source from which it drew information to make the Endangerment Finding on CO2 as a pollutant. In the past, the worldwide nature of the climate changes, and of the data, had been cited as one of the reasons for using the IPCC report, but now it appeared that Jackson was trying to separate the Endangerment Finding from the IPCC.

However, when Inhofe asked Jackson if she was considering asking the EPA inspector general to investigate the IPCC science, she answered:
If anything changes … certainly I would call for a review of the finding, but I haven’t seen that

With the ruling under attack by Senator Inhofe , a number of US states and the huge Peabody corporation more clever footwork will be required to rescue the ridiculous Endangerment ruling.
