Doctors for Disaster Preparedness files amicus case against EPA overrun

TUCSON, Arizona., 23 December 2021 / PRNewswire / – Enabled December 20, Doctors for Disaster Preparedness filed a brief friend with the United States Supreme Court in the biggest energy case in a decade, West Virginia against EPA, n ° 20-1530. The DDP urges the court to end interference with affordable energy by the Environmental Protection Agency, which has never been authorized by Congress.

The question presented in the brief is whether an administrative agency can unilaterally issue rules of such scope that they reshape the country’s electricity grids and “decarbonize” any sector of the economy, with virtually no limit. .

“The misuse of science for a political control agenda is dangerous, and the kind of factional tyranny that the Constitution protects against,” argues DDP. The climate change activist faction seeks broad control over our entire energy sector without permission from Congress.

“If current trends continue, a handful of unelected bureaucrats could virtually ban the use of the combustion engine …, and average Americans will become dependent on the government allocation of electric charging stations in order to simply travel from point to point.” A to a B. ”Americans are also said to be dependent on the government for access to heating, refrigeration and lighting, the brief notes.

“Today there is no greater faction ‘zeal’, like James madison in other words, that the demand for increased government control over energy as part of a theory of cataclysmic man-made climate change, “argues the DDP, urging the court to” adopt Constitution and affirm that Congress exists to deal with such factions ”.

Under the EPA’s broad interpretation of the Clean Air Act, it could control the lives of over 300 million Americans under the guise of improving air quality. Even Congress is unlikely to have such power, notes the DDP, and “it would be unconstitutional for Congress to delegate such extensive power to an irresponsible administrator.”

“The continued unimpeded delegation to administrative agencies leaves a cavernous hole in the constitutionally balanced structure of checks and balances, as agencies are subject to arbitrariness and irresponsibility,” writes the DDP.

Allowing the administrative state to exceed these limits is dangerous for freedom, says DDP.
