EPA moves aggressively on SCOTUS ruling requiring CO2 regulation


For a Free Scotland
Washington -- The Environmental Protection Agency has sent a proposal to the White House finding that global warming is endangering the public's health and welfare, according to several sources, a move that could have far-reaching implications for the economy and environment.

The proposal -- which comes in response to a 2007 Supreme Court decision ordering the EPA to consider whether carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases should be regulated under the Clean Air Act -- could lay the groundwork for nationwide measures to limit such emissions.

This was something that was in stasis in the last two years of the Bush administration, but may eventually take the form of California's CO2 regulation, or the UK's much more aggressive resolution on the subject.
