ABSTRACT
The article discusses the controversy related to the decision made by the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama to limit global warming by reducing carbon emissions through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA announced a rule to reduce carbon emissions from fossil-fuel burning plants by 30 percent by 2030. The U.S. Congress is against the rule, and may block it. The decision is also being opposed by coal-dependent states such as Missouri, Kentucky, and Indiana.
