The article reports on an amicus brief filed by the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) and other conservative groups against a Sierra Club petition demanding that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulate carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from new electric power plants. It is claimed that if the club wins the litigation, many of previously unregulated small- to mid-sized farms, factories and buildings might have to go through the costly and time-consuming Prevention of Significant Deterioration (PSD) permitting process.
