Historic Global Warming Regulation



On September 8, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) proposed the first national standards to limit global warming pollution in U.S. history.

The proposal would:
  • Reduce global warming pollution from automobiles by 21% by 2030.
  • Cut carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 950 million metric tons.
  • Save 1.8 billion barrels of oil.
  • Save the average consumer more than $3,000 in fuel costs.
The House passed a bill that would:
  • Caps and reduces global warming pollution
  • Caps and reduces global warming pollution
  • Creates jobs in the U.S.
  • Cuts U.S. imports of foreign oil
  • Improves national security
  • Leads other countries to act
Today's announcement opens a 60-day public comment period before the rule can be finalized. Please take a moment to submit your comments in support of this historic rule.

Also, keep up pressure on your Senators to provide a bill at least equivalent to the House bill. Remind them that writing a climate bill is important. Encourage them to keep the pork on the bill to a minimum.

Everyone’s got a list of things to do as bloggers, or things not to do. There’s so many lists these days for these kinds of things, it’s getting a bit frustrating. Really, the key to blogging is churning out quality content. This will never change, so long as the target audience is still for humans. So I guess if I was forced to produce a list, it would only have that one item.
