Here's the latest story on the EPA news.yahoo.com...
I think this is how obama The Destroyer is going to pass cap & tax.
Jackson suggested the EPA's decision Monday that greenhouse gases should be regulated would be a dual path of action by the Obama administration and
"This is not an either/or moment. This is a both/and moment," she told more than 100 people who packed a U.S. meeting room in the conference
The EPA determined Monday that scientific evidence clearly shows they are endangering the health of Americans, and that the pollutants — mainly
carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels — should be regulated under the Clean Air Act. That means the EPA could regulate those gases without the
approval of Congress.
The EPA decision was welcomed by other nations in Copenhagen that have called on the U.S. to boost its efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions,
because it seemed President Barack Obama could act more quickly and bypass legislation slowly working through Congress.
The full Senate has yet to take up legislation that cleared its environment committee and calls for greenhouse gases to be cut by 20 percent by 2020,
a target that was scaled back to 17 percent in the House after opposition from coal-state Democrats.
"We have been fighting to make up for lost time," Jackson said, referring to the Bush administration's rejection of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, which
limited the greenhouse emissions of industrial countries.
Jackson said "we need legislation" to remove any uncertainty that businesses might have.
"The reason for legislation is to take that question out of their minds," she said. "We will work closely with our Congress to pass legislation to
lower our greenhouse gases more than 80 percent by 2050."
U.S. business groups have strongly argued against tackling global warming through the Clean Air Act, saying it is less flexible and more costly than
the cap-and-trade legislation being considered by Congress
The way I take that section is obama's going to give you the option, get hit hard by the EPA throught the Clean Air Act or just get hit with the cap
