The EPA released the statement late Thursday......before Christmas.....nobody saw it.
This isn't available for judicial review, either. This is a way that the Obama Administration has back-doored Cap and Trade! :evil:EPA sets schedule to limit pollution from power plants, oil refineries
Final standards would be announced in 2012 for such facilities, which account for almost 40% of the nation's greenhouse gas emissions. Republicans and energy industry officials object.
Reporting from Washington â€"
The Environmental Protection Agency announced a timetable Thursday to curtail greenhouse gas emissions from two major sources of the pollution scientists link to global warming: power plants and oil refineries.
The announcement was the latest step in an ambitious effort to begin taking action on climate change, and it is certain to draw fire from congressional Republicans and industry leaders who have promised to halt the agency's efforts.
The new move toward far-reaching emissions rules comes as environmentalists had begun to worry that the Obama administration was easing its push in order to avoid confrontations with major industries in advance of the 2012 presidential campaign.
