ABSTRACT
The article focuses on planned reviews by new U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator Lisa Jackson on policies by the former U.S. President George W. Bush's administration regarding fuel standards and carbon dioxide and mercury emissions. Under the previous administration, emission was not considered in industrial facility approvals and calls to limit global mercury pollution were not heeded.
