US EPA Holding First Public Hearing on Proposed Endangerment Findings for Greenhouse Gases Under the Clean Air Act

15 May 2009

EPA is holding the first of two public hearings on Monday, 18 May regarding the agency’s proposed findings that greenhouse gases contribute to air pollution that may endanger public health or welfare. (Earlier post.) The proposed findings identify six greenhouse gases that pose a potential threat.

The hearing at the EPA Potomac Yard South Conference Center in Arlington, Virginia, is scheduled from 9am to 8pm. Comments are limited to 4 minutes, and EPA says that with all the slots from 9am to 8pm full, they are already oversubscribed. There will be “After Hours” times available later in the evening.

Speaking slots for the subsequent public hearing, to be held in Seattle, Washington on 21 May, are also oversubscribed.

Written comments will be accepted until 23 June 2009. EPA will consider written comments submitted during the comment period with the same weight as oral comments presented during the public hearing.

The hearing will be audio webcast. Logistics and registration information for the hearing are here.

With the AGW campaign in a TOTAL free fall collapse, only a small cadre of misanthropes would continue to claim CO2 a "pollutant."

The game is over. AGW has failed. And the damage done to legitimate, good science is legion. But as the mess is cleaned up and the guilty are held responsible, slowly the factual tragedy that is "global warming" will be corrected.

Good scientists will return to positions of authority, facts and truth will supersede alarmist tripe, and natural climate variability will take its rightful place as the major influence on Earth's weather.

"With the AGW campaign in a TOTAL free fall collapse, (...)
The game is over. AGW has failed."

Really? That's how you see this? It sure looks to me like climate protection is being written into law. This piece is about the EPA taking initial steps to regulate CO2 emissions. A couple months ago Obama was calling for cap&trade legislation (www.greencarcongress.com/2009/02/president-oba-1.html).

What exactly do you mean by "failed"?

(And furthermore, what exactly do you mean by "good science"... I just read your comment on zero point energy).

Some see things the way they want to see them. It is self centered egotistical narcissism. They never grew up and the world revolves around them. Anything that upsets that delusion, like the truth, is met with anger and denial.

@ Nat:

A good place for you to start would be here at green blog "Survival Acres:"

This is a discussion of research done on the effects of regulating CO2 to the fullest extent of the current Waxman-Markey bill.

Even if this bill passed and Cap N'Trade was fully implemented and we cut GHGs by 80% by the year 2050 - we would have "saved" a total warming of 0.05C!

This is an analysis done with the EPA's own MAGICC: Model for the Assessment of Greenhouse-gas Induced Climate Change, developed by Dr. Tom Wigley et al, at National Center for Atmospheric Research.

Good science.
