ABSTRACT
This article reports on the issuance of a proposed finding on the impact of emissions of greenhouse gases by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in April 2009. The finding stated that emissions of six specific greenhouse gases contribute to air pollution that may endanger public health or welfare. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson is also proposing to examine if the combined emissions of carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and hydrofluorocarbons are contributing to the mix of greenhouse gases.
