Skip to comments.World’s biggest coal company brings U.S. government to court in climate fraud
Posted on 02/21/2010 12:40:50 PM PST by libstripper
The worlds largest private sector coal business, the Peabody Energy Company (PEC) has filed a mammoth 240-page Petition for Reconsideration, a full-blown legal challenge against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
The petition must be answered and covers the entire body of leaked emails from Climategate as well as those other gate revelations including the frauds allegedly perpetrated under such sub-headings as Himalayan Glaciers, African Agricultural Production, Amazon Rain Forests, Melting Mountain Ice, Netherlands Below Sea Level as well as those much-publicized abuses of the peer-review literature and so called gray literature. These powerful litigants also draw attention to the proven criminal conduct by climate scientists in refusing to honor Freedom of Information law (FOIA) requests.

Ooooo! Ooooo! This could get really interesting!
It is about damned time that someone brought these hucksters to court.
We’re getting closer to the time when we are going to see Algore and his greedy, “carbon credit” pals doing the “perp walk”.
Dare we dream?
Yes finally fighting back.
I bet they have spent millions on trying to meet algores fraud.
Gore, the IPCC, Pickens, & anyone affiliated with companies that make money off of legislated global warming initiatives should all be brought in.
You can bet that these guys were leaning on Evan Bayhs doorbell quite a bit, too.
This is one lawsuit I hope the coal company blast the adminstration right out of the water.
Oh, goody: When oil peaked at $100.00 a barrel I bought a lot of coal stocks.
Where do I contribute to the cause? Sure, Peabody may not need the cash, but I’ll chip in...
This is absolutely wonderful! Ayatollah Obama will not be able to ruin what is left of industry in the United States, if the EPA is not allowed to levy taxes on American companies.
Tx & VA too
We should take a page from the left’s playbook and start refering to Gore and the rest as the “Carbon Cartel”.
EPA: An unelected, flunky bureaucracy wielding rogue powers based in junk science. A cancer on the private sector.
Action against EPA abuse by private enterprises:
Action against EPA abuse by state/federal government:
I read someplace that some spokesman for the EPA in answering a question related to the scientific basis for their need to control carbon dioxide emissions responded: “The United Nation’s IPCC of course”. If so, the EPA will have zero chance of prevailing in court.
All of the oil companies should join in, too!
