This article presents information on a coalition of industry groups which have submitted a brief to a federal appeals court supporting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's decision not to regulate emissions of carbon dioxide, which many scientists believe contributes to global warming. The industry organizations filed their brief on November 2, 2004 in connection with a 1999 petition filed by environmental organizations asking EPA to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from new motor vehicle engines. EPA denied the petition, saying the Clean Air Act did not give the agency the authority to regulate greenhouse gases as pollutants.
