EPA Takes First Step Toward Regulating Pollution Linked to Climate Change - First 100 Days of Presidency - Politics FOXNews.comWASHINGTON -- The debate on global warming is set to heat up again with the Obama administration's release on Friday of an EPA proposed finding that carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases are a danger to public health and welfare.
The finding is the first step to regulating pollution linked to climate change.
Congressional sources told The Associated Press that Environmental Protection Agency will announce its proposal Friday and begin a comment period before issuing a final ruling. The EPA also will say tailpipe emissions from motor vehicles contribute to climate change. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the finding hasn't been announced.
The action was prompted by a Supreme Court ruling two years that said greenhouse gases are pollutants under the Clean Air Act and must be regulated if found to be a human health danger.
And we will soon all suffer immeasurable loss of economic and personal liberties.
I wonder, if the same folks that spent 8 years or so screaming about the fact the Government might tap their phone lines if they dialed up a terrorist will protest the impending infringements and impediments to their freedoms.
Somehow, I think they won't.
