Does the EPA put any Green House Gas limits on power plants?

    Very recently, the EPA has moved to more tightly control air pollution from power plants.  They say they are completing a rule that would require large polluters to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide and other greenhouses gasses they emit in the air.  This only applies to large polluters- such as powerplants- who emit almost 70% of the greenhouse gas emmisions of the US.  This rule will take effect in January, and will force plants to obtain a greenhouse gas permit if they increase their greenhouse gas emmision by 75,000 tons.  Over time, they hope to make this rule more strict in order to cover more greenhouse gas emmissions.
