Even in Oklahoma, You Can't Hide From GHG Regulations By Mary Ellen Ternes


This article first appeared in the The Journal Record - December 17, 2009

If you have tried to ignore any news with a hint of “climate change” or “greenhouse gas,” you might not be able to hide any longer. Sooner or later, recently adopted and upcoming federal rules are bound to affect every American, and they’re unrelated to “cap-and trade” legislation and that conference in Copenhagen. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is now implementing mandatory greenhouse gas (GHG) reporting requirements. With the EPA having just found that GHGs endanger us, it may soon be enforcing GHG permitting requirements.

Even if you’re not in a targeted industry sector, you need to read on. These developments will affect how cars and trucks are made, how energy is produced, how energy is used, how much everything will cost, and ultimately how we go about business as usual.
