DALLAS (Sept. 19, 2008)- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has no evidence that greenhouse gas emissions are harming the environment, according to comments filed this week by Sterling Burnett, Senior Fellow at the National Center for Policy Analysis.
The EPA is considering whether it should be regulating greenhouse gas emissions and whether the Clean Air Act is an effective way to do so.
"Using the Clean Air Act to regulate greenhouse gases is not at all what the law was intended to do," Burnett said. "You're seeing a lot of regulation without any results."
According to Burnett, laws intended to fight global warming will only hurt American progress.
"No regulation that the EPA could propose will actually prevent or even substantially mitigate the future harms they posit global warming might cause, but they will hurt the economy and working people. The government ought not to bash the poor in a vain effort to control the climate," Burnett said.
