EPA adds unannounced stationary sources to final regressive rule on greenhouse gas emissions
In a last-minute deregulatory act, the Environmental Protection Agency included a major change Wednesday to a rule that regulates greenhouse gas emissions from stationary sources, such as factories. By introducing an arbitrary, low threshold for greenhouse gas emissions, and deeming sources below this value as “insignificant,” this Trump administration rule would prevent a wide swath of polluting sources from being regulated. This rule would effectively deregulate greenhouse gas emissions from all stationary sources except power plants. This section of the rule is also being implemented without a public comment period.
