Environmentalists are opposing the new decision by the Environmental Protection Agency saying carbon dioxide is not a pollutant to be regulated when utility firms are applying for permit to build power plants. The environmentalists fear that with this new decision, more coal-fired power plants will be approved and built. But EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson said the agency cannot regulate carbon emissions in approving a power plant.
What a heck! Since when did it occur that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant? The EPA decision made by Mr. Johnson is clearly ridiculous. Every scientific study points to the fact that carbon dioxide is a pollutant and must be regulated to stop further damage in the environment. That ought to be made known to Mr. Johnson, even if he is soon to leave office to be replaced by a new Obama-picked administrator.
