|Congress is responsible for determining any climate change legislation — it should not be left to the Environmental Protection Agency to determine|
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is currently considering proposals to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act. The author of the Clean Air Act stated this would result in a “glorious mess” as it was never intended nor designed to regulate these emissions.
It is the responsibility of Congress to determine any climate change legislation, not EPA.
