Can the EPA regulate green house gases?

    Yes. The Environmental Protection Agency concluded in April that greenhouse gases linked to climate change “endanger public health and welfare,” setting the stage for regulating them under federal clean air laws. The EPA action was prompted by a Supreme Court ruling two years ago that said greenhouse gases are pollutants under the Clean Air Act and must be regulated if found to be a danger to human health or public welfare.

    Yes, they can.

    By using the power and authority of the Clean Air Act, the EPA assists in the reduction of emissions from the nation’s largest greenhouse gas-emitting facilities without placing an undue burden on the businesses that make up the vast majority of our economy.

    Not only can the EPA regulate greenhouse gases, but they are going to begin to regulate these substances that result in global warming very soon. In 2010, the Obama administration recently announced that greenhouse gas emissions for cars and trucks will be regulated, meaning that the EPA would be forced to regulate the gasses. In addition, the EPA just took moves to regulate greenhouse gasses from factories, power plants, and refineries.
