EPA: Greenhouse gases endanger human health



WASHINGTON - The Environmental Protection Agency has concluded greenhouse gases are endangering people's health and must be regulated, officials told The Associated Press. The EPA will announced its findings at a news conference Monday. The announcement is timed to boost the Obama administration's arguments at an international climate conference — beginning this week — that the United States is taking actions to combat global warming, even though Congress has yet to act on climate legislation.

Under a Supreme Court ruling, the so-called endangerment finding is needed before the EPA can regulate carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases released from power plants, factories and automobiles under the federal Clean Air Act.


Another member on here started a thread (jdub297) about this happening by early this week, and possibly as early as Monday.

Well here it is. Not surprised actually.

How bout we stop cutting down rain forests. It would be nice if there was just some breathable air in 10 years or so. Even if it is polluted disgusting breathable air.
