In the wake of the recent Supreme Court decision that the EPA
does have the authority to regulate greenhouse gases, Senator Barbara Boxer is urging the Bush White House to do something quickly to curb greenhouse gases. Boxer, who is chairwoman of the Senate Environment Committee also wants the Environmental Protection Agency
to start creating new regulations limiting CO2 emissions from coal-burning power plants. EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson will be testifying before Boxer's committee on April 24 and she will definitely be putting pressure on him to explain why they are not restricting greenhouse gas emissions, urging him to take action quickly.
