The states of Missouri, Arkansas, Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Utah have filed a collective lawsuit against the Biden administration for arbitrarily trying to assign a “social cost” to greenhouse gas emissions in an executive order.
The lawsuit was filed Monday according to The Hill, and took issue with one of Biden’s many executive orders.
“Setting the ‘social cost’ of greenhouse gases is an inherently speculative, policy-laden, and indeterminate task, which involves attempting to predict such unknowable contingencies as future human migrations, international conflicts, and global catastrophes for hundreds of years into the future,” the lawsuit states. “Assigning such values is a quintessentially legislative action that falls within Congress’s exclusive authority.”
“These numbers are high enough to justify massive increases in regulatory restrictions on agricultural practices, energy production, energy use, or any other economic activity that results in the emission of such gases,” the lawsuit concluded.
President Biden has also come under fire for his decision to focus the resources of the U.S. military on “maternity flight suits” and “updating hairstyle requirements”:
President Joe Biden stated Monday that under his administration’s the top priorities of the U.S. military will be tailoring uniforms and body armor so that it fits female soldiers better, as well as changing hairstyle requirements and issuing something called “maternity flight suits.”
“Some of it’s relatively, uh, straightforward work,” Biden said. “We’re making good progress designing body armor that fits women properly, tailoring combat uniforms for women, creating maternity flight suits, updating their hairstyle requirements, and some of it is going to take an, uh, you know, an-an-an an intensity of purpose and mission to really change the culture and habits that cause to leave the military.”
Biden went on to forget the name of his Secretary of Defense, former Raytheon board member Lloyd Austin.
Within two months of his inauguration, Biden has already become one of the most unpopular presidents in U.S. history.
