How is the EPA going to regulate greenhouse gas emissions?

    Many people have brought up the fact that there is so much to regulate as almost every industry big and small, and individual homes all emit.  The EPA responded by saying that it would only make rules for large factories, refineries, power plants, and any place that is responsible for over 25,000 tons of CO2 emissions.  In October of 2009, the EPA found 13,661 facilities met these requirements and are responsible (according to the EPA) for half of the country’s emissions.  As these facilities apply for new permits, as they all will have to do over time, the EPA will impose requirements that they use the “best available technology” to reduce emissions.  The greenhouse gases it intends to regulate are carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, hydrofluorocarbons, perfluorocarbons and sulfur hexafluoride.
