Global warming

Coalition of EPA scientists calls for agency to regulate carbon dioxide emissions

(NewsTarget) EPA scientists from across the nation are in the process of petitioning the U.S. Congress to stem global warming resulting from human-created causes. A letter attached to the EPA petition states "We are writing to protest the lack of progress in addressing global warming."

The letter and petition from the EPA scientist group goes on to say that "the federal government is using primarily voluntary and incentive-based programs to reduce the bulk of emissions (the EPA) could do more." That statement is in reference to the actions of the EPA bumping up its activity level to halt -- as much as possible -- the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

In addition to the concerns expressed by EPA scientists here in the U.S., Australian businesses would be forced to comply with tough new limits cutting damaging greenhouse gas emissions under a sweeping plan to tackle global warming delivered just this week by the Australian parliamentary secretary for the environment.

Several considerations in Australia to curb the emissions of greenhouse gases -- initiatives like including a phased-in cap on carbon dioxide emissions, tough new rules to clean up emissions from cars, and accelerating investment in "clean" coal technology -- would go quite a way in helping stem the rise of greenhouse gas emissions that add to global warming on a global scale.

As a start, using clean-burning power sources like clean coal technology are now in early stages, but show promise. Governments worldwide have been increasing investment in major projects with the hope of relying on coal-fired power and reducing pressure on the environment, but that's only a start.

According to a summary released in conjunction with the EPA scientist's petition, the EPA needs to do more to regulate and enforce strict emissions laws from private and public emitters of greenhouse gases to a point where the damage caused to the environment would not be permanent and irreversible.
