Late last month EPA sent the White House a formal finding that greenhouse gases endanger public health and welfare; the Office of Management and Budget signed off on the determination Monday.
…According to a congressional aide who’s been briefed on EPA’s proposal, the agency indicates its preference for legislative action in the finding itself. But the endangerment finding also makes a broader case that the U.S. must act to limit greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, according to the aide, saying the science underlying its determination is “compelling and overwhelming.”
It appears from the article that EPA will focus on the “…the big stuff, the big sources of global warming pollution.”

The “natural” gas produced in Booger County has about 5% CO2 and a bunch of H2S–all of which is spewed out into the air from short stacks, making for a VERY PLEASANT environment–all legal by the state agencies!!
