    It did during the Bush administration.  The Bush administration argued that regulation of greenhouse gases should be left to the discretion of the EPA.  However, the Surpreme Court ruled that the EPA was required to take action.

    Right now, a large number of Senators and House Representatives are pushing for bills to postpone the EPA’s regulations on carbon emissions.  The reason for this is that many states’ economies depend heavily on fossil fuel combustion and export (thus on carbon emissions), and they worry that enacting regulations will negatively affect jobs and local economies.  A minimum of two years is being asked by such members of Congress, in order to sufficiently analyze potential risks.
