The NYT is reporting on recent legislative initiatives to curtail U.S. EPA’s regulation of greenhouse gases:  "The Inhofe-Upton-Whitfield bill would, its sponsors say, prevent the E.P.A. from enacting rules that should properly be written by Congress, restrict use of the Clean Air Act to address climate change, prevent the administration from enacting a ‘backdoor’ carbon tax and protect American jobs from foreign competition."  Interesting.
