The article presents an argument that an increase in clean air regulations in the U.S. would be disastrous for American manufacturing. The efforts of the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama to limit U.S. carbon dioxide emissions are discussed. As the U.S. Congress has declined to pass legislation limiting such emissions, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is planning to use its regulatory power to do so.
