Old News, New Administration

23 03 2009

Not surprisingly, the Environmental Protection Agency sent out a new proposal claiming global warming is a threat to public health and welfare. This same idea was actually rejected in July 2008 by the former EPA administrator Stephen Johnson. Apparently the new administrator, Lisa Jackson, will be taking the EPA in a new direction.

“Frank O’Donnell, who heads the public watchdog group Clean Air Watch said the new proposal, ‘will set the stage for the first-ever national limits on global warming pollution. And it is likely to help light a fire under Congress to get moving.'”

But some businesses are not as optomistic about the new limits, saying pollution caps will further hinder any chances at economic recovery.
