E.P.A. Expected to Regulate Carbon Dioxide

Big overdue news: The federal government is finally set to regulate CO2 emissions. The regulations, however, are not yet taking the form of specific legislation, but will, for now, come as a reapplication of the old Clean Air Act.

"The Environmental Protection Agency is expected to act for the first time to regulate carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases that scientists blame for the warming of the planet, according to top Obama administration officials."

More from the New York Times.
