"The day after the November 2010 elections made clear President Barack Obama's greenhouse-gas legislation was doomed, he vowed to keep trying to curb emissions linked to global warming. There's more than one way of "skinning the cat," he told reporters.
Since then, Obama has used his executive powers — including his authority under the 1970 Clean Air Act — to press the most sweeping attack on air pollution in U.S. history. He has imposed the first carbon-dioxide limits on new power plants, tightened fuel-efficiency rules as part of the auto bailout and steered billions of federal dollars to clean-energy projects. He also has proposed slashing mercury emissions from utilities by 91 percent by 2016."
Way too little. Until we deal with climate change, these seemingly impressive moves are mere baby-steps. - Wes
