Appeals hearing today in Washington challenging the Environmental Protection Agency and its rules on greenhouse gas emissions.
Virginia and Texas along where power plant company's business groups including the US chamber of commerce arguing the EPA relied on -- highest.
And inaccurate data -- scientists.
My next guest maintains the global warming proponents are engaging in outright fraud and their data is rigged and using it as an excuse to redistribute wealth in this country.
Joining us tonight senator James in operating member of the environment and public works committee.
Who's just written a brand new book entitled the greatest hoax.
All the global warming conspiracy threatens your future and you can check -- more on the -- that -- dobbs dot com senator great to have you with us what's.
Let's let's turn to your first -- the challenge.
Against the EPA before the the appellate court.
Is -- your sense -- that's that that's going to prevail.
A little they'll probably -- -- I'd say June.
But we you you keep in mind they have done it in endangerment finding.
In the if you recall at the time they did the endangerment finding I asked the administrator the EPA.
On the record and live on TV.
Is that you know if you do this right before I left to be the one man -- squad and -- opening.
-- senate and I have a feeling that -- had a good job I should -- about it's kind of fun.
And the most enjoyable three hours ever had my -- but as long way to get there if you I said to do this endangerment finding.
You've got to rely on some sides -- is that science gonna be.
-- she said well of course the the IP CC that's the United Nations here your viewers know that they're very sophisticated -- And it happened to -- about poetic justice.
It wasn't a matter of months or weeks it was a matter of hours before climate gate -- I so there they have it I was gonna -- out and it's shorting your parents -- and -- Before climate date on all that is unfolded since then.
It actually was happening when I was over the if you remember.
I would over there -- spoke after Pelosi and Hillary and Obama and end John Kerry I was the one man's.
In fact when I talk to the hundred -- wouldn't need a 191 nations there they all had one thing in common they all hated me.
That -- the -- now they know history well.
Senator let let's turn good to somebody is becoming an object of some concern if not scorn.
In that is energy secretary Steven true.
Telling congress that that lower energy prices specifically lower gasoline prices.
-- did you know questions not a major concern in his what's your reaction.
Well my reaction is I appreciate his honesty is I knew -- wasn't in as you pointed out several times we talked for.
He made that statement way back -- I guess 08 bright that there of their goal -- up to eight or nine dollars to the comparable amount in in Europe about halfway there.
Yeah we're about halfway there and on top of that look.
And right now if they go on with their regulations as they're trying to do and that's what this court case is all about.
I don't think that the court is -- overturn the endangerment finding.
Because that's not the way the law is structured.
Once the EPA has -- made that declaration you've got to then prove your case against it.
It be very difficult to do even if that's the case is still gonna end up in -- huge tax increase but not as great as if they find.
This -- and they proceed with.
Generally -- think as high as -- gas prices are now what would they be would say start regulating the refinery.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Barney Frank Ed Markey to congressman calling for the strategic -- -- be tapped by this administration.
Well my reaction is it's therefore it's a strategic petroleum reserve.
Is there -- -- we have another Katrina for example put of -- happens another Persian gulf war.
That's what that they kind of thing that that's therefore take care you don't wanna touch that.
And besides that even if we did that would be a temporary -- let's go after.
You said this several times and not many people realize that we have more recoverable reserves in American Google.
Oil and gas that any country in the world.
Senator James and -- -- we're always appreciate your time and we appreciate your being here.
And and the book is the greatest folks and you can go to Lou Dobbs dot com port the Bork and by a copy.
Senator thanks for being here.
