    You would have to pretend for that to be true since the EPA began the process in 2009.


    Should Congress move in and state clearly that the EPA does not have authority to regulate CO2, that would invalidate the Courts' ruling
    .

    Can Congress overturn the Supreme Court decision?

    A very bad analogy. There is a huge difference between making sure that a DD is asigned on an individual basis and regulating entire industries that affect an entire nation.

    As I already stated. Legislation and regulation in this case is the same thing. I'm sure you are aware of this.

    Wow, I didn't think there were still people unaware of this. Usually this is the part where the conspiracy theories begin.
    Is there a scientific consensus on global warming?

    Yes I already knew what the majority of climatologists state. That wasn't my question. My question is who exactly peer reviews the EPA findings.

    Umm...yeah...this is real encouraging to read....

    This Handbook was developed by EPA to provide guidance to EPA staff and managers who are planning and conducting peer reviews. This Handbook is intended to improve the internal management of EPA by providing recommended procedures and approaches for EPA staff and managers. This Handbook is a guidance manual and not a rule or regulation. The Handbook does not replace existing laws or regulation, does not change or substitute for any legal requirement, and is not legally enforceable. This Handbook does not create or confer legal rights or impose any legally binding requirements on EPA or any party. The use of non-mandatory language such as "may," "can" or "should" in this Handbook does not connote a requirement but does indicate EPA’s strongly preferred approach to ensure the quality of peer reviews conducted or initiated by EPA. Mention of trade names or commercial products does not constitute endorsement or recommendation for use.
