API Slams EPA’s Proposed Endangerment Finding
Jack Gerard, president of the American Petroleum Institute, issued the following statement today, slamming the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed endangerment finding for greenhouse gases:
“The proposed endangerment finding poses an endangerment to the American economy and to every American family. It could lead to greenhouse gas regulations under a law fundamentally ill-suited to addressing the challenge of global climate change. The regulations could impose complex, costly requirements on restaurants, colleges, schools, shopping malls, bakeries and many other businesses and institutions. The Clean Air Act was created to address local and regional air pollution, not the emission of carbon dioxide and other global greenhouse gases."
