"if greenhouse gases cause global warming"? Why don't we just debate whether the sun will rise in tue east and set in the west?

It would seem to me one of the underlying issues here is akin to the issues in Airzona's immigration law.

If the federal government is failing to enforce regulations within its province is the state allowed to adopt and enforce its own regulations?

N.B. - this statement is devoid of any judgment inherent in the ethical issues inherent in either case.

Merely asking - if the feds aren't doing it, should the states be allowed to regulate themselves. Across the board. And what problems does this create with regards to uniformity, comity and national identity.
