Epa Won’t Regulate Co2


The Environmental Protection Agency announced it would deny an environmentalist petition calling on the agency to regulate carbon dioxide emissions from automobiles. Appropriately, the EPA recognized that Congress has never granted the EPA authority to regulate CO2. No doubt, environmentalists will sue challenging the decision. A few northeastern states are also pursuing legal action to force the EPA’s hand, as I discussed here. I’ve posted additional background material here.
