EPA: Greenhouse Gases Hazardous to Your Health


Source

The so-called endangerment finding was announced by Lisa P. Jackson, the administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency at an afternoon press conference. It could signal a possible first step by the EPA to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act. But Jackson said the agency would prefer that Congress pass legislation that would limit production of the pollutants.



This finding means the Obama administration is prepared to act to limit global warming without Congressional support.



The endangerment finding comes after a 2007 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that said such a finding was necessary before the EPA could use the federal Clean Air Act to regulate carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases from power plants, factories and automobiles, Jackson said.


Sounds like there is some sort of hidden agenda here, maybe having to do with wanting more greenhouse gas regulated. I guess more regulation=more power, more power=more money...

I wouldn't be surprised if instead TPTB use this to extort $$$ from those power plants and factories, and why not throw in a new taxation for the economical carbon dioxide pollution yearly?

*By the way, I'm aware of the other thread regarding a similar article as this one, but the facts in this article are focused on other subjects so I thought I'd share.
