EPA Greenhouse Gas Finding

Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal (among numerous others) reported that the Environmental Protection Agency had declared that “greenhouse gases are a danger to public health and welfare in a decision that could eventually lead to new emissions regulations.

“The so-called ‘endangerment finding’ announced Monday by EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson is necessary to move ahead on new emission standards for cars, while potentially opening up large emitters such as power plants, crude-oil refineries and chemical plants to limits on their output of carbon dioxide and other gases.”

If you’re interested in learning more about the EPA declaration and the background to the decision, see the original EPA press release here or the EPA’s description of their action and its basis here.
