expand all the legal infirmities" EPA’s defenders argue the plan is sound and a full-court press is simply to be expected against rules that would curb the source of one-third of the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions “There are going to be winners and losers” predicts Richard Revesz director of the Institute for Policy Integrity at New York University School of Law in New York City which filed court briefs in defense of EPA "Obviously it’s not good for the coal industry It’s not surprising that to protect their market share they’re going to invest a lot of money" trying to block the rule Still even President Obama predicted that “this will be tough” during his 20 May commencement address at the US Coast Guard Academy But he stressed that the United States has to “move ahead with standards to cut the amount of carbon pollution” Just how tough Here are seven arguments and tactics opponents are expected to use to try to bring down the clean power rule 1 Back to court to show immediate harm As soon as EPA does publish its final rules the race will be on to block them before they take effect The plaintiffs that lost today’s case—including 14 states—have said they will go back to court likely with more allies A lot will depend on the federal judges drawn at random who hear the case (Seven of the 11 judges on the DC circuit were appointed by presidents Obama or Clinton) Two of the judges who issued yesterday’s opinion for example ruled in 2011 to block another big EPA clean air regulation—the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule to cut power plant ozone and fine particulate emissions that blow across state borders But EPA ultimately won that fight in a 6 to 2 ruling by the US Supreme Court That high court decision bodes well for EPA in the long run but it’s a victory that took nearly 3 years Similar delays on the Clean Power Plan would rob Obama of his chance to put his stamp on a climate action legacy And it could have international implications because the United States faces important climate negotiations in Paris in December which will be harder if their domestic plan is in legal limbo And it would make it far easier for President Obama’s successor to withdraw the plan entirely To win a stay of the clean power rule energy companies or states will have to show both that they face “immediate irreparable harm” and have a good chance of winning the case on its merits Because no emissions cuts would be required until 2020 it may be hard to show an "immediate" threat; states and power companies will argue the industry has to plan capital investments well in advance 2 Pick apart the language of the law Challengers see an opening because of the messy way Congress wrote and revised the Clean Air Act When first passed in 1970 Congress created Section 111 giving the government authority to regulate pollutants not already specifically addressed in other sections of the law (The idea was to give flexibility to address newly emerging problems) But when the law was amended in 1990 the language was changed so that it could be interpreted to cover only facilities (a “source category” the law now says) that aren’t addressed in another provision Section 112 Adding more confusion: the House of Representatives and Senate had passed different versions of the bill that were never formally reconciled Now in an argument only a Washington lawyer could love challengers to the clean power rule will argue that EPA can’t regulate power plants using Section 111 which is a major foundation of the new rule because they already are regulated under Section 112 In its brief for the case settled yesterday EPA described the text of the law as “a grammatical mess” and “convoluted” But it wrote that if the challengers are right then then “EPA would have to pick one set of health and environmental issues to address while ignoring another” Revesz for one calls this argument “literally preposterous” while David Doniger director of the Natural Resources Defense Council’s climate program dismisses it as “a dishonest fiction” Power plants are in fact regulated under several sections of the Clean Air Act other observers note And courts have a long tradition of giving deference to federal agency interpretations of the laws for which they are responsible making this attack likely to be a long shot 3 Argue the Constitution is at stake One of the nation’s leading constitutional scholars contends that the Clean Power Plan would usurp the role of the states in violation of the 10th Amendment The argument is all the more bitter for EPA supporters because its proponent is Harvard Law School Professor Laurence Tribe: a liberal hero for his court victories against big tobacco and other businesses accused of wrongdoing the man who represented Al Gore in his ill-fated Florida recount battle and a personal mentor to Obama when he was a student at Harvard “Burning the Constitution should not become part of our national energy policy” Tribe said in congressional testimony in March It’s not the first time Tribe has shown skepticism of EPA’s powers; he argued on behalf of General Electric that the agency’s Superfund toxic waste cleanup law was unconstitutional Notably Tribe lost that case in 2010 This time Tribe’s client is the world’s largest coal company Peabody Energy But environmental law experts including some of Tribe’s own Harvard colleagues believe that he will fare no better That’s because federal environmental programs have long been based on EPA setting standards and the states implementing them—“cooperative federalism” as EPA’s supporters call it Some of Tribe’s arguments “if taken seriously would lead to a dismantling of the New Deal” programs established by President Franklin Roosevelt Revesz says But in Washington even a losing constitutional argument can still win points Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R–KY) invoked Tribe’s arguments in March when he made an extraordinary call for states simply to refuse to submit plans to implement the Clean Power Plan 4 Just say no So far Oklahoma is the only state to take up McConnell’s call for inaction On 28 April Governor Mary Fallin (R) signed an executive order barring state environmental officials from working on any state plans to implement the new rules And she directed Oklahoma’s attorney general to undertake his own legal analysis of the rules immediately after they are finalized But EPA will step in if a state doesn’t write its own plan and take over implementation of the new rule The potential for such bigfooting and loss of control may be enough to dissuade other states from just saying no 5 Warn that the lights will go out EPA critics argue that the plan will force big steady-running coal power plants that generate “baseload” electricity to close or scale back making the power supply less reliable That view is backed in a report by the North American Electric Reliability Corp (NERC) an industry-funded nonprofit to which Congress has delegated responsibility for ensuring the reliability of the electric delivery system But a competing analysis commissioned by renewable energy smart grid and energy technology companies said that NERC had failed to take into account clean power measures that actually could make the system more reliable And other NERC critics say its past predictions of electricity reliability troubles due to environmental regulations have proven to be “overblown” “Such warnings are common whenever there is major change in the industry” wrote energy policy expert Susan Tierney on the World Resources Institute’s blog on 14 May “[T]he reliability concerns currently being raised … presume inflexible implementation are based on worst-case scenarios and assume that policy makers regulators and market participants will stand on the sidelines until it is too late to act” In 40 years of Clean Air Act regulation she noted regulators have never been flatfooted enough to allow environmental rules to dim the nation’s lights Still the reliability issue has resonance on Capitol Hill where few politicians are steeped in the nitty-gritty of electric systems issues and no one wants to be responsible for power outages It’s no surprise that the key bill introduced in Congress to stop EPA is called the “Affordable Reliable Energy Now Act” It would put EPA’s Clean Power Plan on hold until the legal issues are resolved and give states an opt-out if their governor determines it would “negatively impact” either economic growth or electric reliability It will not be easy however for the current bill to garner the 67 votes needed to override a presidential veto—which would be all but certain if it actually made it to the president’s desk Narrower legislation that would give states greater flexibility in implementing the rule however could draw wider bipartisan support 6 Save the manatees In an unusually creative strategy rule opponents are trying to enlist another federal agency—the US Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS)—in slowing down greenhouse gas regulation arguing fossil fuel cuts could hurt an endangered marine mammal the Florida manatee About 60% of Florida’s manatees rely on warm-water refuges created by outflows from 10 coal and nuclear power plants Representative Rob Bishop (R–UT) chair of the House Natural Resources Committee earlier this spring floated the idea that EPA should be required to engage in formal consultations with FWS over the impact of the power plant regulations which could force some of these coal plants to close 7 Flexibility jujitsu As in the martial art of jujitsu Clean Power Plan opponents will try to turn a touted strength into a weakness EPA’s supporters argue the plan is innovative because it gives states the power to look for needed greenhouse gas cuts anywhere—even “beyond the fence line” of any particular fossil fuel power plant States could start conservation programs for instance or even work out pollution trades with other states that have an easier time meeting their goals Such flexibility means states won’t necessarily have to move quickly to close power plants But the plan’s opponents argue that EPA doesn’t have the authority to go beyond the fence line—that the agency has authority only to spell out standards for the polluting power plants themselves At issue is a phrase in the law that says EPA can set rules to encourage “the best system of emission reduction” The agency argues a “system” includes a full range of options including energy conservation or replacing fossil fuels with renewable sources Opponents disagree “EPA is trying to change the statute” says Jeff Holmstead an energy industry lawyer at Bracewell & Giuliani “But what the statute has meant and the way EPA has interpreted it for 40 years is as the best system for controlling emissions from an individual power plant” This argument is especially galling to EPA’s supporters because under President George W Bush’s administration when Holmstead himself was an EPA official in charge of air pollution programs the agency tried to regulate mercury pollution using a similarly flexible system of pollution allowance trading The Supreme Court struck down the mercury program for other reasons and Holmstead argues it was far more limited than what EPA is now trying to do “We knew that our approach … might be pushing up against the boundary of our legal authority” he says But the new rule “really raises legal issues that have never been raised before” EPA acknowledges it is trying to do something different But Doniger who like Holmstead has both been an EPA official and an outside opponent believes EPA is on firm legal groundScott Schliebe/USFWS Veteran wildlife researcher Charles Monnett whose 2006 paper suggesting that polar bears may be drowning due to melting sea ice was featured in Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth has been suspended by his employer the US Bureau of Ocean Energy Management Regulation and Enforcement (BOEMRE) pending an Inspector General’s investigation into undisclosed "integrity issues" No one in the US government is detailing those issues and BOEMRE won’t allow Monnett to speak to the media but the disclosure has generated a firestorm on the blogosphere as climate change skeptics are wildly speculating about scientific misconduct in regard to Monnet’s polar bear work The advocacy group Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER) has taken up Monnett’s cause calling the apparently criminal investigation a politically-motivated "witch hunt" against a scientist whose research threatens the government’s ability to drill in the Arctic Yesterday PEER filed a "Complaint of Scientific and Scholarly Misconduct" with the US Department of the Interior (DOI) demanding that BOEMRE reinstate Monnett and apologize PEER’s complaint framed Monnett’s suspension as a Kafkaesque nightmare in which Monnett who until his suspension was managing $50 million in federal funds for scientific research at BOEMRE was placed on administrative leave by the regional director without being told the reason In the transcript of the DOI inspector general’s February interview of Monnett the investigator says that the office had received "allegations of scientific misconduct" The investigators proceeded to grill Monnett on the methodology and statistics used in the peer-reviewed paper in Polar Biology he co-authored with Jeffrey Gleason (who is not under investigation)—Monnett countered that the investigators didn’t understand fifth-grade math or the peer review process Scientific misconduct the inspector said when asked was "basically uh wrong numbers uh miscalculations" Monnett rejected that characterization saying that’s "not scientific misconduct anyway If anything it’s sloppy" But whether the 2006 paper is even involved in the suspension remains unclear BOEMRE spokeswoman Melissa Schwartz says that the proceedings have nothing to do with "scientific integrity his 2006 journal article or issues related to permitting as has been alleged" and regard an unrelated matter Other scientists impressed with Monnett’s work are also unsure where any allegations of a lack of scientific integrity could have arisen In an e-mail to ScienceInsider Ian Stirling a polar bear researcher at the University of Alberta in Canada calls the 2006 paper a "very valuable observation … properly written up and published in a respected peer reviewed journal" Monnett and Gleason had observed four dead bears floating in open water in 2004 a phenomenon never before seen despite 16 years of observations and concluded that they had drowned Melting sea ice and windstorms that increased swim distance they suggested in the paper might be a cause Al Gore’s movie Stirling feels overinterpreted Monnett’s observations "I still think it is a good piece of work puts a limited number of observations in a solid context does not overinterpret and does not say this was caused by climate change" Phillip Clapham a cetacean biologist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Marine Mammal Laboratory who has worked extensively with Monnett says that he and others "never had any reason to question his scientific judgment as anything other than excellent If he’s replaced permanently then it’s a loss of experience and scientific knowledge" Despite PEER’s call for reinstatement other scientist advocacy groups have been more circumspect Francesca Grifo director of the scientific integrity program for the Union of Concerned Scientists told the AP that she’s "not alarmed by the handling of the case so far" and that PEER’s allegations are "premature" Everyone "should wait to see what if anything comes of the inspector general’s investigation" she added But in the meantime the incident has been widely picked up by the climate change denial movement as evidence of more scientific misconduct by climate scientists (Predictably it has already been christened "Polarbeargate") Still the polar bear may survive as the fluffy white posterchild for climate change Monnett’s paper nonwithstanding "I think the evidence is very very strong that global warming and sea ice loss will have a serious effect on polar bears" says Jack Lentfer retired US Fish and Wildlife Service polar bear scientist and consultant for the US Marine Mammal Commission Scientists have decades of data documenting the bears and Lentfer says that the bears’ weights have been dropping over the past 25 years indicating that they’re having trouble hunting seals on sea ice And the number of polar bears in the southern edge of their range the Hudson Bay have drastically decreased as sea ice is present for shorter and shorter amounts of time he notes Written by Agencies | Mumbai | Published: April 23 2012 9:42 pm Related News The Bombay High Court today asked why only

fellow at Southampton University now at the State University of New York who led the study “But in this case conscious awareness appears to have continued for up to three minutes into the period when the heart wasn’t beating even though the brain typically shuts down within 20-30 seconds after the heart has stopped “The man described everything that had happened in the room but importantly he heard two bleeps from a machine that makes a noise at three minute intervals So we could time how long the experienced lasted for “He seemed very credible and everything that he said had happened to him had actually happened” Parnia said Of 2060 cardiac arrest patients studied 330 survived and 140 said they had experienced some kind of awareness while being resuscitated One in five said they had felt an unusual sense of peacefulness while nearly one third said time had slowed down or speeded up Some recalled seeing a bright light; a golden flash or the Sun shining Others recounted feelings of
