As demonstrated in the Environmental Protection Agency’s previous rules addressing anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), the Clean Air Act (CAA) is wholly unsuited to regulate this most ubiquitous side-effect of basic human activity and natural processes. EPA should refrain from acting as a federal energy master and return to the CAA’s mission: to protect human health from the adverse effects of pollution in the ambient atmosphere. EPA should hit the pause button on its aggressive climate change agenda and seek guidance from Congress on policies of such national consequence.
