    The Clean Air Act was signed into law in 1963. Since then it has been amended several times to strengthen its protection against pollution. The supreme court has said that the Environmental Protection Agency could use the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gas emissions, if these emissions could be proven to be harmful to human health, which they have.

    The Clean Air Act was passed first passed in 1963, resulting in a government program used to monitor and evaluate air pollution. the Clean Air Act of 1970 was much more stringent, establishing federal and state programs to monitor and curb carbon emissions from both stationary and mobile sources. The act has been amended twice since it was passed. In 1977, provisions were added, regarding Prevention of Significant Deterioration (in terms of air quality) and areas that did not meet the federal standards. Again, in 1990, amendments were made in order to increase the influence of the federal government over the CAAA, and specific provisions were added to attempt to treat the threat of acid rain.
