Obama Faces Tough Fight Over EPA’s Carbon Emission Rules, Beinecke Says


| Sourced From Bloomberg |

President Barack Obama must fight to defend rules cutting global-warming emissions that some lawmakers have vowed to block, said Frances Beinecke, head of the Natural Resources Defense Council.

The Environmental Protection Agency rules covering major polluters such as power plants and similar actions that dont require congressional approval are Obamas best chance to curb greenhouse-gas emissions in the near future, Beinecke said today. Obama failed this year to push climate-change legislation through a Congress controlled by fellow Democrats. Republicans, who will control the House next year, opposed the measure.
