ABSTRACT
The article reports on the efforts the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act in the U.S. It states that the threat of global warming to public health as declared by the EPA could be the first step to regulating carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. However, it notes that the Clean Air Act will require permits and could halt an array of projects, including those at the heart of the economic recovery plan of President Barack Obama.
