Western Business Roundtable: Congressmen, Not EPA, Should Monitor Emissions

Winners of our Strangest Argument of the Week award: The Western Business Roundtable, who said:

Congress is best suited to determine how a national greenhouse gas emissions reduction program should work. Therefore, any bill should explicitly preempt the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act.
Um? No. EPA scientists versus lawmakers exposed to lobbyists and with an inclination to turn a blind eye to regional polluters?

Points for creativity though.
